At dot on a sock we want to lighten the load on our planet.
We do this by using minimal packaging. Our manufacturer bulk packs all our socks without pairing them. And with no pairs, that means there’s no annoying plastic ties holding them together (that quite simply are a tooth hazard for anyone who has ever tried to bite one of them) and no unnecessary cardboard binding a bunch of paired socks together.
And what little packaging we do have, is sustainable. Our packs of socks are simply wrapped up in our sustainable tissue paper proudly supplied by noissue.co.
Our postage satchels are 100% compostable cornstarch & reusable, proudly supplied by hero packaging.
We also aim to help reduce clothing waste in Australia. Australians discard 23 kilograms of clothing per person every year and this results in six tonnes of textiles and clothing contributed to landfills in Australia every 10 minutes.
One of the reasons Nic founded this business was every few months she found herself throwing out a bunch of odd socks, which all add up and contribute to Australia's clothing waste issue. With dot on a sock it’s our hope that our families come back to top up their sock supplies with us if and when required #leavenosockbehind
