Our aim is to educate the next generation on sustainability and ways we can help to save our planet. As a community here is our chance to put the message into practice and contribute to saving the environment for future genrations to come.

Lopees evolved because we as parents were constantly looking for envelopes for payments for school activities. Realizing this adds to more waste paper in our school the idea of the reusable envelope evolved.

Lopees reduces the need to use paper products, so we are effectively saving our diminishing forests. Your school or business will benefit from the savings in buying paper envelopes for internal and external mail use and in waste paper disposal costs. In a school environment Lopees will pay for itself within the first year as on average child will use approx. 100 envelopes per year. The cost of the envelopes exceeds the cost of the Lopees reusable envelope which can be used by the child year after year.

Our reusable envelope is made from organic cotton grown in India, free from pesticides and chemicals, which further helps the environment. Our supplier in India makes our product to our design and only for our company. Our manufacture has retrained men and women from 20 – 40 year olds who have suffered hardship.

The times – they are a changin'

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

When I was younger,  (oh so much younger than today…) shopping used to take ages. Ages, I tell you. Buying clothes was particularly complex – colour, fit, brand, price, style, trends, brand, brand, brand, did I mention brand? They were all on the criteria checklist, each important, brand most of all. If I couldn’t find the perfect piece, a complement of all the criteria, I would probably forgo fit…or maybe colour. (I wince with the recollection of a teeny-tiny gold dress now living happily in someone else’ wardrobe – thanks Ebay!)

But these days, shopping has never been quicker. How?! I hear you say, as you wonder how to fit the washing, the vacuuming, the play date and the conference call into the next half hour before school pick-up starts. It’s simple. The criteria has changed. There is still a list of criteria, all important, but there is now the addition of one deciding factor, one factor that sits above all others, without which, there is no purchase. It’s RELEVANCE! If it aint relevant, it aint in the shopping cart.

For example – let’s say I’m looking for a new dress (Gee, that never happens). I could spend hours trawling through a shopping mall, mesmerised by the mannequins with no hips, deliberating if this dress or that skirt will match with this bangle or those shoes. Or I could jump on-line to my favourite Eco Fashion Store and see what’s new. In that moment of decision, I have chosen to shop in a way that is relevant to me, saying ‘no thanks’ to all other factors that complicate the issue. And yes, I will still find my good friends Fit, Style and Brand in my purchase, but first and foremost, I will find Relevance in the organic manufacture of the garment I wear against my skin. And yes, it will match perfectly with the organic meal I will enjoy with my family!

Let’s say I run out of coffee. I could occupy the shopping aisle for a good ten minutes moving from jar to jar, freeze-dried pack to freeze-dried pack, trying desperately to recall the brand of coffee on that ad with the cute guy and the nice smile. Not now! Now I simply reach for the brand with Fair Trade’s distinctive blue and green logo. I say ‘no thanks’ to the boy with the cute smile (who will never cross my path as I sip his coffee, and who my husband would not care to meet anyway) and instead say ‘yes please!’ to asserting that the coffee farmer who produced this coffee gets paid a fair price. Easy. Quick. RELEVANT. (and mmmm, coffee…)

And as I enjoy a piece of Fair Trade chocolate with my kids, I get to share a relevant conversation with them. I get to show them on the globe where the Dominican Republic is, and tell them how we get to enjoy this chocolate, because a farmer gets to keep his farm, because we think that’s fair. So far this satisfies their question about why we don’t buy certain amphibian shaped chocolates.

There is as always, the great thrill of owning something new, something lovely. The thrill for me though, is in knowing that my purchase actually makes a difference. That is relevant to me….and shopping has never been easier!
