Canningvale Cares

At Canningvale, our products are designed with purpose and passion. For over 40 years our goal has been to make luxury homewares attainable for all Australians. Along with crafting exceptional quality products we need to consider the impact we have on the environment.

We are committed to making recognisable changes in our sourcing, products, packaging and our day to day operations and introduce eco-friendly initiatives to evoke positive change. Find out more below.

Our Goal:

By January 2020, 100% of cotton fibre and fabrics sourced for Canningvale products will be more sustainable cotton.

Better Cotton Initiative

Cotton is an integral material for Canningvale and its consumers. The cotton industry supports the livelihoods of over 250 million people living around the globe, and in recent times has achieved great improvements in efficiency and sustainability initiatives. Despite this, high water usage and pesticide usage still lead to significant environmental and social challenges.

Cotton is present in almost 95% of all Canningvale products sold globally, which in the coming year will equate to over 400 metric tonnes of Cotton fibre used. We believe that we have a responsibility to source our cotton in a way that minimises cottons environmental impact and social challenges associated with the cotton industry.

Sustainable Products

We have recently introduced the Tribu Collection of Rugs, Baskets and Cushions and the Morocco & Timbre Rugs which have been crafted from a yarn made from recycled plastic water bottles. This collection combines style and sustainability with home d├ęcor products you can feel good about bringing into your home.

Since 2017 we have eliminated 200,000 plastic packaging sleeves by using self-fabric bags.

Reduction in Plastic Packaging

In taking steps to reduce the amount of plastic used in our packaging, we have transitioned from plastic to self-fabric bags for all our bedlinen. This allows you to feel the fabric without taking it out of the packaging. If you then have a change of mind based on colour or feel, you can send it straight back to us and we can re-sell it, further reducing the amount of waste.

To continue our efforts, we are now looking to transition our filled goods (quilts & pillows) from plastic packaging to cardboard boxes and aim to have this completed by June 2021.
