When it comes to the planet, we are all guests

That’s why we are committed to being on our best behaviour when it comes to protecting our fragile environment. Our comprehensive Green Guest Initiative promotes sustainability, increases efficiencies and reduces waste in every aspect of our business.

By continually seeking out new technologies and opportunities to be more environmentally-friendly, we hope to lead by example in the industry and pass on the benefits of being eco-minded to our hotel partners. If greater sustainability is on your agenda, we invite you to explore the many ways we can help you and your customers become better Green Guests.

Our Operations

At Interior Images we start by tending our own garden, so to speak.  We realise that before we can help anyone else be a better Green Guest, we need to make sure our business makes as small an impact on the environment as possible.

We are a certified LowCO2 business – As of January 2019, Interior Images is a certified LowCO2 business through our partnership with the Carbon Reduction Institute. Together we work to reduce our carbon output and offset the carbon we do produce by investing in Cambodia: Access to Clean Water through the Ceramic Purifiers Project. To learn more about how we achieved our LowCO2 goal and about the water purification project we proudly support, visit here.

Reducing Waste and Supporting our Neighbours in Need – We constantly strive to be more efficient but occasionally end up with excess, damaged or unwanted stock.  That’s where our charity partner, Every Little Bit Helps comes in. Established in 2014, Every Little Bit Helps collects, packs and redistributes unwanted hotel toiletries, in-flight amenity kits, cosmetic and make-up samples to victims of domestic violence, troubled youths, the homeless and asylum seekers. With a convenient drop off location in Melbourne, that means we can help pamper those in need without increasing our carbon footprint. Learn more about Every Little Bit Helps here: www.elbh.org.au

An Office that Works – Our headquarters in Port Melbourne were specially designed to maximise available daylight, reducing our need for heating and artificial lighting. We’ve installed energy efficient lighting throughout the office, we use 50% recycled paper for printing and vigilantly recycle paper and cardboard waste. We recycle superseded technology as well as all Australia Post packaging.

Our Products

Not just distributors, Interior Images proudly owns a number of luxury skin care lines and creates custom amenity collections for partner hotels. Working closely with contract manufacturers who maintain the highest environmental and ethical standards, we are making the following environmental efforts with our products:

Elevating Eco-Friendly Dispensers – We’re creating the largest portfolio of dispenser options and brands in the industry in an effort to reduce the number of single-use plastics in hotels. Exciting advancements in dispenser technology and design have elevated these eco-friendly, cost-saving options. And with even the most luxurious brands now offering their exquisite formulations in this format, “green” is set to become the new “gold” standard.  Explore our dispenser options here www.interior-images.com/dispensers

EcoPure – Many of our brands include EcoPure in their plastic packaging.  EcoPure is an FDA-approved plastic additive that is believed to aid in biodegradation. The addition of EcoPure does not compromise the integrity of the plastic or interfere with the recycling stream, so we always encourage Green Guests to recycle first.  Learn more about the science behind EcoPure: www.goecopure.com

Biodegradable Packaging – In 2018, we introduced dry amenities and accessories packaged in Plastarch Material (PSM). A biodegradable, thermoplastic resin, PSM is biodegradable in compost, wet soil, fresh water and seawater, so it is a perfect, environmental option for outer packaging that is usually discarded. Contact us to learn about the accessories in PSM soft touch packaging that we offer.

FSC and Recycled Paper – Although many of our products are already crafted using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper and/or paper with a high percentage of recycled content, we continue to redevelop more of our boxes, cartons and inserts to meet this criteria. FSC is a not-for-profit organisation that sets the standard for what a responsibly managed forest is, both environmentally and socially. Discover more about their inspiring mission here:  www.au.fsc.org/en-au/fsc

Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) – The wide spread use of palm oil in cosmetics has had a negative effect on our remaining rainforests. We have proudly produced soaps with RSPO certified palm oil since 2015, but are now insisting that every soap we make moving forward meets this standard. You can familiarise yourself with their logo and read about their crucial mission on their website: www.rspo.org

Naked Soaps – Would you go naked to help the planet? We’ve proudly been offering soaps in our Serendipity and All About Me ranges “naked”, without any outer packaging, for more than a decade. Naked soaps eliminate tonnes of packaging, reduce costs and are perfectly sanitary. And since we emboss the soaps with a logo, housekeeping has no doubt if the soap has been used or not. To enquire about eliminating unnecessary soap packaging at your hotel, contact us.

Local Manufacturing – Although more expensive than overseas manufacturing, we continue to increase the number of products we make in Australia, particularly in Melbourne. Not only does this support our economy and reduce lead times for our clients, it also reduces the pollution generated by transporting goods over long distances.

Our Partners

Interior Images seeks to partner with likeminded businesses that share our commitment to the environment and who enable us to be better Green Guests.

European Manufacturing Partners – Every project, production and decision our European manufacturers make starts with conservation and preservation. Offering Cosmos Organic, Nordic EcoLabel and EU EcoLabel certification, they have also pioneered packaging that greatly reduces the amount of carbon dioxide produced in production. They conduct Environmental Impact Studies on production practices as well as on every single product, evaluating Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) to minimise impact wherever possible.

Asian Manufacturing Partners – We carefully evaluate and monitor the environmental practices of our key manufacturing partners. We select them based on their ability to offer sustainable and ethical material sourcing, EcoCert and Eco-Label certifications, FSC accreditation, cruelty-free facilities and demonstrable investment in new green technologies. For example, one manufacturer has opened new facilities that include a sewage treatment plant, while another operates as a paperless office.

DHL – One of our preferred transportation partners, DHL has set a company-wide goal of Zero Emissions by 2050.  To reach that goal they are focused on increasing their carbon efficiency, using bicycles and electric vehicles for their first and last mile services, and certifying 80% of their employees as GoGreen specialists. See the other steps DHL is taking to reach zero emissions here: https://www.logistics.dhl/au-en/home/about-us/corporate-responsibility/mission-2050.html

StarTrack – StarTrack has a roadmap to increase social and economic inclusion by connecting all Australians physically and digitally, to minimise their environmental impact, and to transform their business to a greener supply chain. They’ve invested in smarter technology in their trucks and parcel facilities, which means they can continue to deliver for our partners while still upholding their environmental responsibilities. Their aim is to find zero carbon and low waste solutions across their business operations.

Australia Post – Australia Post have set three key environmental targets to achieve by 2025: reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15%, reduce operational waste by 20% and reach a 70% operational waste recycling rate. They are also improving their transport network by shifting to fuel efficient vehicles, electric bikes, electric vehicles, and instituting fuel reduction programs. Introducing the Planet Ark Australian Recycling Label in 2016 has made it easier for Australians to recycle Aus Post packaging, regardless of their location and kerbside recycling processes.
