Environmental issues and a sustainable approach are very close to the heart of Robyn Lavender, Director of Kiwinet mosquito nets.
As an environmentally conscious company, we are committed to doing our best to protect the Earth wherever possible and with World Conservation Day celebrated 28th July each year what better time to remind ourselves that every little thing we do does make a difference – by both reducing our consumption of extracted raw materials eg fossil fuels and precious metals and by minimising our waste to landfill.
We are very excited to announce that
KiWiNeT has GoNE SOLAR!!!
This is a game changer for us
– both our draw on reducing fossil fuels
– our production is back into full swing!!
Further to this –
From the very beginning, Kiwinet has re-cycled wherever possible. All plastic from inbound rolls of netting and fabric is re-used and only once in 25 years has plastic been purchased to cover an export order of frames on dispatch.
All mosquito netting off-cuts are up-cycled, re-purposed and re-used to minimise waste and thus landfill for example
- Fairy skirts
- Washing Bags
- POP Bag’s
(Pass on Plastic) for loose veggie purchases, laundry delicate’s wash bags, small item travel storage bags and more.
Selvedge’s are used for binding our packaged nets
With every order dispatched we include one of our POP bags as a gesture of appreciation and hope that they will be used as a reminder and with conscious environmental thought by the end recipient. They are available for purchase and sport beautiful bright Shwe-Shwe and other off-cut cotton finishes with a selvedge draw string toggle for ease of use.
Kiwinet produces according to actual demand. Lead-time might be a little slower, but we do not fall into the overproduction and overconsumption trap.
Reducing, re-using, recycling and upcycling waste contributes to job creation and Kiwinet is proud to support our local team the communities we serve with this additional opportunity to generate income.
