Sustainability key for Kathmandu

Kathmandu

The Challenge:

Kathmandu are an outdoor and adventure apparel and equipment store with locations in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. With a strong link between their brand and the environment, Kathmandu take proactive action in areas of sustainability and needed a packaging solution that reflected their ethics and efforts in this area.  

The Process:

At PaperPak, we value sustainability and pride ourselves on providing bags that are biodegradable, reusable, compostable and recyclable. Made from paper, the material that goes into our bags comes from sustainably managed forests and is supported by our FSC accreditation. Kathmandu are positively impacting the environment in a variety of ways, from carbon offsetting at the Hinewai Reserve, to partnering with environmental organisations, to launching clothing lines to recycle materials that would otherwise have ended up in landfill. Our PaperPak team worked to create a bag to reflect the Kathmandu style and brand. 

The Impact:

Designing a bag that reflected the Kathmandu brand and ethos, our team were able to provide a bag that fitted with Kathmandu customer expectations in sustainability and promoting the environment. 

PaperPak’s supply chain sourced FSC certified paper and includes recycled paper into the stock that goes to make the Kathmandu bags. In addition, using water soluble glues and water based inks gives us at Kathmandu the confidence to tell our customers that our carry bags are sustainable, recyclable, and compostable.

How dusk leveraged PaperPak’s capability for efficiency in their packaging supply

dusk

The Challenge:

PaperPak has supplied dusk, a premium candle retailer in Australia, with custom print paper carry bags since 2000. 

dusk is a brand constantly evolving to stay at the forefront of their industry, and wanted to consolidate their range of gift bags and gift boxes. dusk challenged PaperPak to find a way to efficiently manufacture the bags and boxes to exacting standards around product look and feel, while guaranteeing product consistency and quality. dusk had a tight timeframe to get the new boxes and bags to ensure continuity for all the stores. 

The Process:

As a family owned company, we pride themselves on developing relationships with customers. Having worked with dusk for 17 years, our packaging experts understood the dusk brand, what it stands for, and their quality expectations. This existing relationship meant we could rapidly respond to the request, and collaborated with dusk staff every step, from discussing concepts, to producing samples, to manufacture and distribution of the final packaging products in a seamless process.

The Impact:

We created a bespoke packaging solution for dusk that streamlined the ordering and forecasting system. Now, not only do we manufacture dusk’s bags and boxes to exacting standards, but we also warehouses the products, forecasts future product needs, distributes to stores, and the team are always available to address any concerns.

The team at PaperPak are very professional, and always go over and beyond to assist whenever needed. National Accounts Manager Paul Platt is great to deal with, and works with dusk as an integral part of his business.
