Sustainable products are manufactured with the minimum negative social, environmental, technical and cost impact that the product lifecycle will have for present and future generations. As the world evolves and the need for diverse products to serve man’s needs has grown exponentially, so too have the negative effects of production on the environment around us.
What Are Sustainable Products?
The use of plastics has risen tremendously and is one of the planet’s most unsustainable products. We at Onya are working to ensure continued future availability of the resources that plastics are harvested from, while diminishing the harm they cause from their over-use, in order to create a cleaner environment.
Our products are manufactured with this in mind. We are acting to ensure a sustainable world not just for the present generation, but for future generations to come. In short, we have to act today, in a manner that will not jeopardise the continued survival of mankind.
Our goal is to recreate products from recycled materials for re-use with as little waste as possible, and thus having minimum negative effects on the planet. At Onya we are highly committed to the value of responsible business practices and principles, and our product range is designed with this in mind. In 2018, we proudly received B Corp Certification.
How Onya Ensures Sustainability
Onya has an extremely dedicated team in place that constantly works to design and support products that are both eco-friendly and sustainable. From the design stage, the whole project life cycle is analysed to ensure its production and use will have minimal negative social and environmental impact, whilst offering maximum benefit to the consumer.
Creative solutions are found to counter any potential hazardous effect these may have, while at the same time trying to ensure that the products are attractive and inspiring to the consumer.
In creating our range of sustainable products, considerations are made on:
- Where and how the resource was sourced, ensuring fair play and sustainability all along
- Whether unfair labour practices are used
- Whether hazardous substances are used
- Whether fair pay to suppliers is practised
- Whether there is ethical treatment of company employees
- Whether there is contribution to social responsibility
- Whether negative environmental effects have been mitigated
- Whether the product manufacture and use will be sustainable
We are a B Corp Certified company, which is our guarantee to you of our adherence to these standards and practices.
Our Range of Sustainable Products
As a solution to the single-use plastic menace, we at Onya are contributing to the reduction of this practice by recycling drinking bottles to produce a fabric called rPET, which is in turn recyclable, for many of our products. We design products to replace single-use plastic that are the cause of a growing environmental menace, and all of our products are 100% recyclable at the end of their long lives.
Our product range includes:
- Reusable produce bags
- Reusable bread bags
- Reusable bulk food bags
- Compostable waste bags and bin liners
- Reusable tote and shopping bags
- Reusable coffee cups
- Reusable stainless steel drinking bottles
We strongly feel that our contribution, however small, is helping to reduce the amount of plastic waste reaching the landfills, ultimately creating a cleaner environment for Australia’s current and future generations, its flora and fauna, and the planet itself.
Our beautiful and practical products also help to send a message and inspire others to come on board. If you are not already familiar with our brand, we invite you to browse online to discover what exciting products we have to offer.
