Healing Our Planet One Package at a Time: Ilan Style's Commitment to Sustainable Packaging

At Ilan Style, we take great pride in every aspect of our work. From the painstaking selection of native botanicals for our naturopathically formulated teas to our thoughtful approach to packaging, every step is infused with a deep respect for our land and our heritage. We are thrilled to announce that our efforts are recognised with the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) accreditation for sustainable packaging.

APCO is a co-regulatory, not-for-profit organisation that partners with the Australian government and industry to reduce the harmful impact of packaging on the environment. Achieving APCO accreditation means we work hard towards creating sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging. And we offer transparency in our plans towards sustainable packaging goals, and the materials we use. 

But why is this important to us?

At Ilan Style, we view our business as a vessel for healing - healing our bodies with our tea, healing our cultural heritage by promoting Indigenous knowledge, and healing our planet by adopting eco-friendly practices. We understand that our responsibility extends beyond the product we offer. It's also about how we offer it.

The unfortunate truth is that packaging waste significantly contributes to environmental pollution. Every year, enormous amounts of packaging materials end up in landfills or oceans, causing significant harm to wildlife, ecosystems, and human health.

Recognising this, we've made it our focus to heal our supply chains and reduce our environmental impact. We believe that in doing so, we can contribute to a broader healing process - for our customers, for our communities, and importantly, for our planet.

Sustainable packaging is a crucial part of our brand strategy. By meeting the requirements for APCO accreditation, we're demonstrating our commitment to making informed, responsible decisions that contribute to a circular economy.

But this is more than just an accreditation for us. It's a validation of our values and a reflection of our vision. It's proof that it's possible to honour our heritage, provide an exceptional product, and still treat our environment with the respect it deserves.

We are immensely proud of this accomplishment, but we see it as a single step in our ongoing journey. Every day, we strive to deepen our connection with our land, our people, and our customers, offering products that bring wellness to all and harm to none.

With Ilan Style, you're not just buying a product; you're supporting a philosophy. You're joining us in a commitment to healing – healing ourselves and our planet, one cup of tea at a time.
