Buy an Apexgray bag for life and we'll buy it back from you!
we choose reuse
Between a quarter and a third of all domestic waste is packaging and with the ever increasing popularity of online shopping this is set to increase. Much of this waste is made from plastic, some of which can be recycled and some of which cannot. Thankfully many retailers are considering this and implementing ways of reducing environmental impact by using materials that can be recycled; thank goodness as we'd have nothing to make much of our sportswear from!
We have an overarching mission to remove as much plastic as possible from the way we do business. By far the most throw-away plastic intensive area for us is packaging. To date we have supplied goods in zip-lock plastic bags, which although have the capacity to be reused have not been comfortable for us to use. We will not be purchasing any more of these in the future, but we will use up the remaining stock. It has therefore been a priority to find a better solution, and now we feel we have found one. Like most good ideas, it's really simple. We have produced reusable fabric product bags for life. These will open up a far better way of getting our product to you. It make so much sense! We send our products to you in them and you send them back in order that we can use them for other customers. It means we don't need to keep ordering new plastic bags that will help to save on the planets resources. It means in the long-term we can save money and so, what's even better, we'll pay you to send them back to us!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We now give you an option at checkout. You can either have your items packed in a zip-lock plastic bag as normal (which can be reused), or for an extra £1.50 you can buy a bag for life. The bag for life is fabric and is made from recycled plastic. If you buy the bag for life you can keep it (they have a multitude of uses) or we'll buy it back from you. Send your bag for life back to us in it's original condition within 15 days of receipt of goods and we will refund you back 10% of your order value. A maximum refund amount of £15 will apply and shipping costs are not included in the calculation. Some examples:-
Your purchases total £65 and you were entitled free shipping - Refund £6.50
Your purchases total £35 and you pay £3.50 shipping - Refund £3.50
Your purchases total £200 and you were entitled free shipping - Refund £15
