Sustainability + Miller Harris

In 2018, we decided to drastically reduce the amount of packaging we created, while still offering beautiful, luxurious and desirable gifts.

As a brand we are actively targeting reducing our waste. As a small company we can’t achieve everything at once, so some goals we will have to work towards.
 
We are determined to do this.

One of our first projects was to reduce the wrapping on our Christmas gifts. Rather than wrap in swathes of plastic and paper, we created real silk scarves in bright colourways which could be used afterwards in a myriad of ways. We made the packaging a covetable and re-usable item in its own right.
 
We gave our customers the chance to either buy pre-wrapped silk clad gifts, or to have standard product wrapped in silk especially.

We are firm believers that it is better to act and do something now, rather than wait and do nothing. Small steps taken by each and every one of us make a huge difference to the impact on the environment.
 
We are fiercely protective of our planet and this commitment is fundamental to our decision making. We recognise that we can’t fully remove waste from our supply chain but we can actively work to reduce our environmental impact.

What we have achieved so far:
 
  • In the past 18 months we have moved our cardboard from virgin board to board using 50% recycled materials.
  • All of our card is now recyclable.
  • Our commitment to the use of natural raw materials and fragrances being composed of 90% natural we are delivering an exceptional quality to our customers, with this comes the responsibility to protect the source of our raw materials.
  • We only work with suppliers who have a sustainable approach to the manufacturing of raw materials and many of the projects go above and beyond sustainable supply to having a positive impact on the communities that we work with.
 
We are proud of our supply chain and the traceability of the raw materials.

We have made a conscious commitment to making products that can be reused and form a secondary purpose, as is evident in our approach to our room diffusors and the decision to move to wrapping in fabric.
 
The scarf wrap can be passed on for wrapping another item or scented and worn. Our brief was to reduce the waste normally associated with layers of paper wrap and still deliver something quite beautiful to our customers.
 
Our Forage collection is housed in recycled London plastic and is designed to be used long after the perfume has run out. Taking something that is waste and moving this to having another life.
