OUR PLEDGE

 

During 2019, we will learn what matters most to our customers and use these insights to improve our commitments to conscious business practices.

 

OUR IMPACT

 
Carbon Conscious   Meridian continues to calculate and audit our carbon footprint, and we set targets for year on year reductions. We’ve adopted Cisco Jabber video conferencing to cut down on air travel and are changing our vehicle fleet to EVs.

Recycling

Each year, we divert 1,716 kilograms of recyclables from landfill.

 
Diversity Reporting   Meridian reports on gender balance across the business and specifically leadership roles. We support “Girls with High Vis” to actively encourage and support women into technical fields.

Eco-packaging

Each year, we save 2,548 containers from potentially going to landfill.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY STORY

"My name is on the store and I take personal responsibility for what we sell and our values. I’m proud to be in our 28th year of business and love hearing from customers about the joy their Cranfields goods are giving them many years after purchasing.

We have long-standing relationships with our many makers and we take seriously the fact that they rely on us to support and promote them, that’s why we take so much pride in our store presentation and service.

Our design aesthetic isn’t dictated by current trends; rather it’s a celebration of simplicity, quality and enduring style. We are eclectic in our offering – it’s a store filled with surprises.”

 “Once you meet the people behind the products that made them, it’s so much easier to sell them because you know it’s going to benefit the person that made them.”

 “You don’t often associate homewares with sustainability - it’s nice to work somewhere that is changing that view. We hope that products we offer will be passed down the generations, rather than being thrown away. People come in here and see things that they absolutely love - so they keep them forever.”

Katie, Customer Care and Marketing Guru

Situated in the Wellington CBD, this stunning store with timber floors and large windows is a lovely backdrop to their ethically sourced collections.
