With sustainability at the forefront of our thoughts, we would like to take this opportunity to lay out a few points and future objectives we are striving towards here at Roka.
Sustainability x Planet
For store orders we have partnered with The Better Packaging Co. for all our Poly bags. They are made from corn starch and are 100% compostable and biodegradable in a home compost environment breaking down within 90 days in a non toxic process. We also use compostable mailers for online orders, avoiding the use of DHL mailers which at the moment are not eco friendly. Our new collection launching this December is made exclusively using ECONYL fabric!
Sustainability x People
We are proud to share that our production is made by a few key individuals in Bali where we live and work. We operate a 'cottage industry' system which means that our cut and sew team get to operate in the comfort of their own homes, choosing their own schedules and honouring that balance of life and work. Payments are made directly to them, calculated per piece made which equates to direct fair wages allowing us to work with the most skilled artisans. On average our team members have over 20 years experience in their respective fields. We are beyond thrilled to see how our small company can directly change the lives of a few talented individuals and their families. We hope to see this growth expand amongst more collaborators as we grow fairly and sustainably as a company. Investing in people and the Bali community is what we're all about.
Please feel free to share any comments, concerns and environmental information directly with us at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to hearing from you.
