REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
In our continual mission to be more circular and achieve our zero-waste goal, our Recycle Programme initiative is aimed at taking total ownership of our products for their entire lifecycle.
Deadly Ponies aims to be zero-waste certified by the end of FY24. In our continual mission to be more circular and achieve our zero-waste goal, our Recycle Programme initiative is aimed at taking total ownership of our products for their entire lifecycle.
Deadly Ponies began with our Creative Director, Liam Bowden, taking scraps from tannery off-cuts to create his very first designs, an ethos ingrained in our practices today. Our ongoing Recycle Programme - a poetic nod to our early days, draws on that inspiration to form a collection of coveted, recycled pieces.
With an existing focus on repairing our bags to extend their lifecycle, we know there comes a time when they are ready for their next journey. For bags that have lived a full life, we want to repurpose them - to enjoy and love for years to come, rather than being sent to landfill.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
STEP ONE - RECYCLE: You can recycle your pre-loved bag via our in-store amnesty or online by contacting our support team here, filling out your details, and specifying that it is a ‘Recycle Return’, our team will then get in touch to confirm the next steps for your Deadly Ponies bag.
STEP TWO - REDEEM: Once your Recycle Return has been processed you will receive a $50 gift voucher that can be redeemed in-store or used online towards your next purchase.
STEP THREE - RE-ISSUE: Your Recycle Return will be used for our annual recycle collection - exclusive to Deadly Ponies, curated with local artisans, and handcrafted at our atelier. Keep an eye out
