Sustainability Promise

The Broke Generation’s online flash sale features a curated collection of preloved classics handpicked by Emma from thrift stores across Melbourne and the world. Designed to encourage more people to shop second hand and cut down on fast fashion, Emma brings the best of the thrift shop to you. No rummaging required.

Orders are shipped with a 100% carbon neutral courier service in compostable packing bags made from corn starch. Instead of wasting paper with printed order details and thank yous, all communication from me will hit your email inbox.

Once you’ve opened your parcel and done the mandatory ‘new outfit’ strut around your living room, toss the packaging in with your garden waste. It’ll breakdown just like your veggie scraps in no time.

Sticky tape use is minimal, but any you see used is biodegradable and made from regenerated wood pulp. I am in the process of moving to fully compostable labels, but an issue with my supplier has halted progress temporarily.

If you have any suggestions or recommendations on our sustainability processes, please feel free to reach out via email or on Instagram. | @the.brokegeneration
