Sheridan: Make Tomorrow Beautiful
02 Aug 2019
Iconic Australian homewares brand, Sheridan, announced new sustainability efforts, which will ultimately help to drive greater accountability in the industry.
Sheridan has committed that 100% of its consumer packaging will be reusable or recyclable by 2025 and that every new Sheridan product will be designed to consider end-of-life by 2025. The company’s product range will also increase to include more sustainable fibres and more responsible production processes in 2020.
To date, Sheridan has diverted over 40 tonnes of textiles from landfill and the business is continuously challenging itself to find better, more sustainable ways of working. When it comes to packaging, 100 tonnes of cardboard have been eliminated by the business over the past 12 months.
“Sheridan is taking action and proudly playing our part in order to make a real difference. We’re actively working towards reducing the environmental impact in everything we do; from our raw material and manufacturing process choices to how we package our products”. Said Paul Gould, Group General Manager, Sheridan Australia. We recognise that sustainability is a journey, and every day we challenge ourselves to find better, more sustainable ways of working” he added.
In February 2019, Sheridan launched an in store recycling program which will be rolled out to all Sheridan stores by August 2019. Since the launch, over 3,150kg of pre-loved bed linen and towels have been donated by customers. Sheridan is actively looking for new ways products and textiles, that might have otherwise been considered waste, can be diverted from landfill. In September 2019, a tea towel made from recycled yarns will be offered in stores.
The move, which targets a set of key operational, environmental and social measures, coincides with the launch today of a visually-stunning creative campaign. The campaign ‘Make Tomorrow Beautiful’ transforms Sheridan’s luxury bed linen into highly detailed replicas of iconic natural landscapes. Each visual represents the diverse parts of nature we need to protect, while demonstrating Sheridan’s commitment to creating products that sustain and support the beauty we see in nature.
Sheridan is actively pursuing new partnerships in its global sustainability drive and is implementing the necessary changes to support the new goals across the breadth of its international supply chain.
