How do we at GoSikh reduce waste.

Dear Friends,

We sell Turbans and most are cotton Turbans, cotton being a highly polluting plant. We know our flaws but we need to innovate and we are on our way.

Here are a few ways we are reducing waste:
1. We are selling the highest quality of Turbans which will last 5-10 years at the minimum with some care. That means, a person can use only 30-60 Turbans their entire life.

2. We are introducing Organic Turbans and Hemp Turbans, Organic Turbans use very little water and no chemicals. The carbon footprint is lower for these Turbans.

3. We are mailing once a week, that reduces the trips we make to the post office. We also use first class mail option to allow for best use of postal resources to deliver the product, again with lower carbon footprint.

4. We use paper envelopes (image above) where we can to reduce the use of plastic.

Overall, we are moving in a good direction. We would like to use more Organic products to allow for less use of chemicals and pesticides in this world. Less water usage helps us all.
