Billi Bi is a member of Leather Working Group that works towards improving the entire value and supply chain in the leather industry. With our LWG membership, we ensure that all leather manufacturers and tanneries comply with the rules of social responsibility, less chemicals and reduction of water and energy consumption.
At Billi Bi, we are very aware of our consuption of materials and continuously try to reduce our impact on the environment. Therefore, we only use bags made of CO2-neutral and recyclable materials. Our I'm green bags are produced using ethanol from sugar cane - a natural and recyclable material. All our shoes boxes are also made of recyclable FSC material.
We support UN's world goals
To minimize our social and environmental impact, Billi Bi has made a decision to incorporate the global goals for sustainable development into our sustainability strategy, focusing on 3 goals where we feel we can have the greatest impact:
Gender equality, clean water and sanitation, responsible consumption and production.
