Finding the perfect wallet is already hard work. How many card slots you want, which material is the best for your needs, and of course price all come into consideration. But for those of us who are also environmentally conscious and always on the lookout for products that meet our ethical standards, finding the perfect eco-friendly wallets is almost impossible. Luckily, Ekster is a brand that offers the highest quality sustainable wallets that not only fulfill all your wallet needs but also make you feel good knowing you’re doing something to support the environment.
What are eco-friendly wallets?
Eco-friendly wallets are also known as sustainable wallets or ethical wallets and herein lies the definition. Whether made from low-impact versions of potentially harmful materials or from completely recycled or plant-based materials, eco-friendly wallets are wallets that are made in such a way that leave the smallest impact on the environment. This involves the material as much as the production, packaging, and general ethos of the brand.
How to spot sustainable wallet brands
As previously mentioned sustainable wallet brands take their commitment to the environment far beyond just marketing. When looking for sustainable wallet brands it’s important to look at the business from top to bottom since production, factories, transportation, packaging, choice of materials, and internal company values all play a big part for a brand’s environmental impact.
True sustainable wallet brands will be transparent about how they make their products, with which materials, in which factories, and have clear statistics about their impact on the environment, such as water and paper usage and their carbon footprint.
