Our supply chain
is everyone’s business.
▼Made in Europe
We exclusively source our materials from Europe. Not just because the costs and carbon emissions from transportation are much lower, but also because we want to understand what materials exactly we are using, know the people that are working with us and profit from the efficiency of the processes that our partners use and what impact they have.
What’s the point of using fabrics from recycled PET bottles, but then you ship them all the way from China to Europe. Wouldn’t it be a shame to destroy this positive impact that you’ve already achieved?

▼Our Supply Chain Roadmap
Packaging is a very difficult topic. On the one hand, we obviously want to use as little unnecessary packaging as possible and on the other hand, logistics companies and even the law give you official instructions that make you dealing with that topic in depth.
Although, as a small company, we still don’t have enough bargaining power to pressure on different processes of bigger suppliers, we always complain and annoy everyone who does business with us in order to provide food for thought.
Luckily our production partner is very flexible and creative and therefore so far we managed to remove plastic after from all deliveries from the manufacturing process onwards. If possible, our partner even reuses the carton packages from the material suppliers in order to send our products to Hamburg in the least wasteful way.
For the package that arrives at your door from our storage in Hamburg, we just started a new initiative to reduce the waste problem in online shopping and in another industry: the food industry. We are collecting empty milk boxes from cafes around our office, clean them in a water-efficient way, disinfect them with a natural-based liquid, and reuse them for a completely different purpose.
Thus, don’t be surprised when your post guy brings you a WONDA branded milk bottle to your doorway.
