WE ARE MAKING THE FUTURE THE CAUSE OF OUR PRESENT
Sustainable living has become a hot trend for anyone who understands that the Earth won’t last forever. 😏 It's simply a way of living that requires as few resources as possible and causes the least amount of damage to the environment. 🌍
Sustainability is not just about adopting the latest energy-efficient technologies or turning to renewable sources of power. Sustainability is the responsibility of every individual every day. 🧍 It is about changing our behaviour and mindset to reduce power and water consumption, thereby helping to control emissions and pollution levels. 🙌
Live sustainably NOW and show that there does not have to be a trade-off between the ethical obligation to maintain a sustainable carbon footprint and the belief that life should be fulfilling and fun.
HOW A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS LOOKS LIKE?
A sustainable/green business is an enterprise to have a minimal negative impact on the global or local environment, community, society or economy. 🌿
✔️ It incorporates principles of sustainability into each of its business decisions.
In general, a business is described as green if it matches the following criteria:
✔️ It supplies environmentally friendly products or services that replace the demand for nongreen products and/or services.
✔️ It is greener than traditional competition.
✔️ It has made an enduring commitment to environmental principles in its business operations.
✔️ Using the process of assessing how to design products that will take advantage of the current environmental situation and how well a company’s products perform with renewable resources.
We definitely find ourselves in this description. 😊 One of our main approaches is that we always look at how we can do our part to help our beautiful planet. 🌍 We are lucky enough to operate a very sustainable business, which helps our community & planet be more healthy. 🙌 Through using natural materials, reclaimed sources, and waste reduction, MMORE is able to operate efficiently and consciously. 🌿
MMORE'S SUSTAINABLE APPROACHES
- USING SHOPIFY
Maybe you think that Shopify is just a platform for selling products and receiving orders, but what hides behind Shopify politics?
Shopify has taken many steps to build a sustainable company, including becoming carbon neutral. They're setting best-in-class standards by buying offsets for all the carbon this company has ever used and will ever use, and they choose renewable energy to heat and power their operations.
Great companies like Carbon Engineering and Climeworks are already tackling the science and prototyping solutions, and there’s room for many more innovators. There’s also space for more companies to invest in this area, as their partners Google and Stripe have committed to.
This industry has the potential to spur innovation just like fossil fuels did. Except this time, the externality is not pollution. It’s exactly the opposite. It’s saving the planet. 🌍
Anthropogenic climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. And also people who developed Shopify aware that we need to tackle it together. That is the reason why they set up The Shopify Sustainability Fund.
The Shopify Sustainability Fund is the house all of our environmental investments, intelligently committing every dollar into the most promising, impactful technologies and projects fighting climate change globally. 🌍
Shopify builds for the long term, so they need to play an active role in making a low-carbon future a reality. They are committed to spending at least $5 million USD annually to fight for our environment. 🌿
- THE FSC CERTIFIED STATUS OF PRODUCTS
We can bet that you noticed the symbol shown in the picture below before. 😉 These labels can be found on millions of products around the world – from packaging (to that milk carton in your fridge) to products (from toilet rolls to your favorite book). By choosing a product with this label, you are helping to take care of the world’s forests. 🌳🌲
What does it mean?
Products carrying the FSC (The Forest Stewardship Council) label are independently certified to assure consumers that the materials of products come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. If this logo appears upon product labels that mean the product is sourced from responsibly managed forests. 🌲
All wood we are using for making our wooden phone cases comes from sustainably harvested, FSC Certified forests across the world! And also sustainable packaging is an essential part of our sustainability mission. 😊
When you order a case from MMORE cases, you can rest easy knowing your packaging (and also a wooden phone case if you ordered one) is coming from a source that has been certified by FSC through their rigorous chain of custody.🌿 Not only is FSC board ethical but sustainable forestry is one of the most effective means to mitigate climate change. 🌍

- PLANTING A TREE WITH EVERY PURCHASE
Trees help to provide shade, privacy, and oxygen to our everyday lives. According to World Bank, over the last 25 years, the world's forests have shrunk by 1.3 million square kilometers - that's 1,000 football fields worth of forests lost every hour. 😞 While farming and mining are good for the economy and provide products that we use in everyday life, no one wants to see the end of natural forests in their lifetime❗ Birds and other animals would lose their habitat and Earth's air quality would suffer. That's why it's important to plant trees - we need to replenish the forests. 🌳
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do.💚 At MMORE, we're focused on more than just planting trees. We want to help change lives. Not only does reforestation revitalize dry arid soil and provide a substantial oxygen supply, but it directly benefits locals living in the area by providing wood for fuel, food, and fodder for livestock, as well as permanent and seasonal employment.
That is the reason why we dedicated to team up with #teamtrees, an international organization called Arbor Day Foundation. 🌱 With every eco-friendly, sustainable, recyclable organic phone case bought, we plant a tree, and that is our way of giving back in appreciation. 🙌

- RECYCLING PROGRAM
Our sustainable practices address all aspects of our business operations and the full lifecycle of a garment - the organic materials and production processes used, how workers are treated, how it gets to the consumer and finally, whether it can be recycled. 👌
We started a program that will provide another life for our cases. We love Nature in every way and always try to keep our environment clean and safe. 🌿 That's the reason why we always want to stick to the principle: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE! ♻️
When your case's lifespan is going to an end you can simply send it back to us and we will RECYCLE IT! ♻️
We will properly separate the plastic from organic materials to enable recycling. Organic materials which can be biodegraded in landfill 🌱 and plastic frames will be submitted to the Jozef Stefan Institute from Slovenia, who developed a device that plastic is processed into fuel. 👍
Plastic is extracted from fuel, so why not reverse the process and recover the fuel from plastic? 💯 The system they developed can convert 100 pounds of plastic into 100 liters of fuel in a very short time, which can be used as DIESEL fuel or raw material for plastic reproduction. This will reduce the huge amount of plastic waste. 🙌 If this trend continues around the world in the future, the amount of fuel extracted will decrease and the environmental impact will be reduced. 👌
