Loveramics Sustainability

Loveramics Sustainability

Loveramics is committed to positive business practises that actively support the environment and the people with work with. As a business, we know that we need to constantly strive to do better in order to be as sustainable as possible.

We manufacture using the traditional craftsmanship we’ve always admired, whilst incorporating modern technology and innovation to raise standards and efficiency.

 

Responsibly-Sourced Raw Materials

We use natural raw materials from responsible sources. We also use suppliers local to our factory, reducing the impact of transportation as much as possible.

 

Circular Manufacturing Processes

We’ve invested in making our manufacturing process as sustainable and environmentally responsible as possible. Our on-site water recycling plant means that we can use the same water over and over again, reducing our demand on local supply and the impact we might have had on nearby waste water infrastructure.

We’ve also developed systems to collect and reuse surplus heat energy from our kilns, creating a more circular system to fire our ceramics.

 

Made to Last

We don’t believe in a throwaway culture: Buy well, buy once is what we say. Everything we make is designed to last for years. While lower-quality alternatives need replacing many times during the lifetime of one of our products, creating unnecessary waste and production impact.

We only ever use the highest quality materials and techniques and fire our porcelain at 1300°c. This creates products of strength, durability and integrity.

 

Recyclable and Reusable Packaging

An important initiative for us at the moment is to improve the sustainability of our packaging. As a company that ships large volumes of breakables this is something that requires careful consideration!

We are currently introducing plastic-free packaging for our key collections. The Dale Harris Tumblers and the Brewers Tasting Cup range are both packaged in 100% plastic-free, recyclable materials.

 

Honouring Traditions

We feel a strong responsibility to continue the positive legacy of potters who went before us, working with natural materials in noble ways. Our staff from the design team to retail staff share an inherent love for the world’s oldest material.

Our Potters colour range pays homage to traditional techniques of glazing and celebrates the art of reactive glazing.
