Our Practices

At Madia & Matilda, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. From our hand-crafted garments to our curated brands, our brand compromises to offering a selection of products that have a positive impact in the environment.

 

Starting with our clothes, the items we make are upcycled from surplus fabrics from across the country. In an effort of reducing the impact these unused fabrics would have on the environment, we produce new, exciting garments instead. Each piece is hand crafted with care, providing you with a beautifully and ethically made garment. 

Our home section is destined to offering sustainable alternatives to everyday items, eliminating plastics. Our focus in bamboo/wooden products that can be sustainably disposed is reflective of this, as these materials can replace environmental damaging plastics with the same type of quality.

Our beauty section is also filled with luxurious sustainable products. To illustrate it, take Lola’s Apothecary Cleansing Bar Collection, hand made in small batches in the UK with 100% natural ingredients. Wellness and a holistic approach to life is at the core of their ethos, and the preservation of local traditions is ensured, as each soap is cured for weeks based on traditional cold process soap making methods.

With a wide selection of products across categories, Madia & Matilda is committed to making the world a better place by delivering products that make you feel good, while preserving the world we live in.

But our offering is not where we stop. 

At the office, we also make sure to keep our footprint as small as possible. We are mindful of how we dispose of our materials, so recycling is a central part of our day-to-day. Everything to be disposed is recycled, from papers to printer inks, and we work collaboratively with Biffa, a prestigious waste management company. Biffa aims to recycle as much waste as possible by using their network of specialist waste processing facilities and simultaneously diverting as a large amount of rubbish from landfills. In addition, Biffa has a division dedicated to recovering energy from waste. One of the main ways they do this, is by using the methane gas released by landfills and converting it into electricity.

Everything, from our office to your home, is designed to have least impact possible on the environment, which brings us to shipping. All your orders are packaged using paper envelopes, which are recycled if unused and we are proud to say that all our orders are shipped using a carbon neutral shipping method by UPS. For each order shipped, UPS commits to offset the shipment impact by supporting projects that benefit the environment, such as reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction. This way, the shipment you receive is having a neutral effect on the environment.
