Nature

Energy and peace

It’s hard to enjoy nature closely nowadays as the consequences of industrialization and urbanization. But since us humans are part of the nature, we go out on the mountains and oceans or even out in parks in weekends to see and feel them with our hearts. We come back to everyday life rebooted by our mother nature.

Human is Nature
 

We want to apply this particular peace and relaxation that nature gives us to our apparels. By putting natural fiber and natural dye together using high technics, we design to make you feel the nature in our products. Using natural substances extracted from Eucalyptus trees or dyeing fabrics with natural colors would only be the first step in connecting us with the nature. We never hesitate to develop natural colors and designs with our partner companies.

 ‘Box Tree’, the box that plants trees

We get diverse benefits from the nature since we acquire mental comfort, energy, and other various products like clothes and even, packaging. What can we do to thank this generous mother nature?

I was a Tree

As our small effort for saving the environment, we are doing a project called Box Tree’. ‘Box Tree’ is a campaign to protect the environment by reducing the use of paper box. For each purchase you make, we save the same amount of money as cost of one shipping box, and this saving is donated to plant trees. If you choose eco friendly, natural disposable packaging shipping, we double the amount of money to donate. ‘Box Tree’ is a campaign that needs your help. We would be delighted if you participate in this campaign with us.






Environment

Plastic planet

Plastic is made for the sake of Human convenience. As plastic usage is increasing more and more, it’s now beginning to threaten our lives. It seems like a SF story that there is a plastic waste island which is 6 times bigger than Korean peninsula floating in the middle of Pacific ocean. We all know well about the severe Micro dust matter. However the seriousness of Plastic waste is unfamiliar to us. This can be as, or maybe even more seriously endangering the world than Micro dust.

Plastic Makes the Earth Suffer
 

Plastic bags and products that we use and throw out everyday without thinking much disassemble into small fragments under the ocean. These pieces deceive fish and birds as being edible. We eat these fish and we can’t even eliminate the plastic pieces since they are too small to detect without a microscope. It’s even more dangerous to humans because toxic substances easily attach to these plastic fragments. It is known that only less than 50% of plastics are reused. In other words, over 50% of men-made plastics are wasted, endangering somebody whether that is a person or an animal.



Zero plastic project

As a solution to improve this severe plastic matter, we strictly limit plastic usage. Furthermore, we try hard to practice ‘Zero-plastic’.

Small Changes make the Difference
 

We use yarns and metal pins, not plastic rings to hang price tags on our products. When we pack clothes, we use eco friendly disposable bags EL724, not PP, which can’t disassemble naturally. These eco friendly bags are composed of starch which is harmless on human body and they don’t excrete waste water at all. We also use right sized bags to minimize the over packaging. Moreover, we integrated product packaging and shipping packaging together to make one in order to avoid double packaging. We use paper tapes to make boxes reusable.

 
 

We will continue on the project ‘Plastic zero’ until 2020. The goal is to not use plastic during the whole process from production to delivery. We hope our effort would encourage your eco friendly life style.






Human and animal

Friend  

We humans have been cohabiting with other animals on Earth from the beginning of history. These creatures should be our ever-lasting friends to share our Mother Earth. But the animals are facing terrible danger. Wild animals are threatened to extinction caused by human being’s reckless destroying of nature. Domestic animals suffer from massive industrialization of cattle raising. Certain animals are raised to embellish human beings for the fashion industry. Human beings’ greed has brought barbaric and unreasonable acts which has resulted in the potential extinction of all animals including humans themselves.

Cohabiting with Long-Lasting Friends
 

Nature has given equal rights and responsibilities to all creatures on Earth. Humans have no right to monopolize or rule nature. We have to honor the dignity of our fellow inhabitants of our planet. We say NO to any kind of animal abuse. We will strive to achieve harmony in our ecosystem and maintain a healthy cohabitation environment of the Earth.






Practice

 Share

We are active in supporting the socially disadvantaged. The stock that remains after the season are donated to various social volunteering organizations to be given out to low-income families. We are gratified to be able to assist and share with those who are in need. We will continuously seek to make our world a better place to live in.

We Like Good People


 Participation

We participate in activities that contribute to enhancing all living beings’ dignity. We would also like to share any ideas with our customers to achieve this. We believe that we are in a good track as in the adage, “Well begun, Half done”. We want to share with you all this and much more.

All living beings are of same weightiness


Solidarity

We are not the only ones in the world striving to save the planet. We would like to collaborate with our confreres of the fashion industry who share our values. Collaboration means “Solidarity”. We would like to hold hands with those seeking sustainability and not an ephemeral trend.

The New Name of Collaboration is “Solidarity”

Please contact here (with@openplanr.kr) if you want to collaborate with us. Let’s pursue our values together!
