TATANKA SMALL STEPS TO BUILD A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD:

Energy efficiency: most of the lights in the 3 Tatanka smartshop are LED technology.
LED light bulbs are extremely energy efficient and long-lasting; a LED bulb can cut energy consumption by over 80% when compared to conventional light bulbs and can last up to 25 times longer. If every American replaced one conventional light bulb with a LED, the energy savings could light approximately 2.5 million homes. That’s the equivalent of the greenhouse gas emissions of 800,000 cars.

Sustainable clothing: We are working to have 100% of the clothes and accessories in our stores made of hemp and organic cotton. Hemp naturally makes one of the most environment friendly fabric in the world.

Sustainable hangers:  On average, it is estimated that for each person on the planet, at least one hanger ends up in landfill every year – all together, that’s more than six billion hangers polluting out Earth each year. The hangers are made from a 100% recycled solid board. The hangers too are 100% recyclable after you are done using them.

Plastic Free World: Join Today!  The goal of our Tatanka campaign is to raise the awareness of people from all over the world about the problem of the plastic waste. We give the option to our customers to replace one time use plastic water bottle with one made out borosilicate glass which is lightweight and sustainable.  Refilling your Retap-Tatanka bottle is an easy step to support the environment.

Biodegradable plastic bags: Once again Tatanka is fighting polluting plastic by offering shopping bags made out of Bioplastic. Bioplastic is plastic derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oilscorn starchpea,starch or microbiota when usual plastic is made out of petroleum. Our bags are biodegradable and non-polluting.

Smoking paper unbleached: Unbleached rolling papers are healthier and cleaner as they don’t contain any chlorine or any chemical products. Their impact plays both on environment (no chemical wastes) and on smoker’s health (no chemical sprayed in the body).
