Our overarching aims are to extend the product’s life and, on disposal, prevent the product from going to landfill.
Our Product Life Framework sets out our methodology and vision for keeping products and materials in use for as long as possible. Our priority is to extend the life of the products that we make by designing with durability in mind.
But what happens when your runners can no longer be worn? We have created a framework that considers each of the below scenarios and we are currently working across all solutions to make sure that our Runner, and its materials, are optimised to their potential.
1. CARE + REPAIR
Our top priority is extension of life. Caring for your Runners and repairing where necessary extends the product’s life ensuring you’re shopping slow and running fast.
If you no longer need your Runners but they still meet our performance standards, the option to re-sell offers a second (or third, or fourth) extension of life.
3. CLOSED LOOP RECYCLING + BIODEGRADABILITY
We want to take accountability of the products that we make. If your Runners are no longer suitable for wear, we offer a take-back scheme for you to return them to us so that we can recycle or biodegrade components that are no longer fit for use.
4. OPEN LOOP RECYCLING
If there is a material stream that is not able to feed into Hylo products, open loop recycling enables us to work with other industries that have the capabilities to recycle what we cannot - keeping materials in circulation for as long as possible.
When you’re finished with your Corn Runners, send them back to us and we’ll give you £10 Hylo Credit as a thank you.
Our community are the most important part of our circularity. Without you, the chain breaks.
