Sustainability has been the reason why we started COVER, and it will always remain the most integral part of our company. We are constantly striving to further minimize our environmental footprint because we know that sustainability is an ongoing process, and that there is always room for improvement. At COVER, we believe in our responsibility as a company – for the environment and society. We aim for corporate transparency, close relationships with our partners, and our community.

Minimizing the environmental footprint involves understanding the environmental impacts.
This is why we took a close look at every stage of the process.

We don't use new resources. All our products are made of recycled
materials and are GRS certified.
After their life cycle, every single product can be recycled again and again. This way, no materials and resources are wasted, and nothing ends up as litter or in oceans.
We believe that world-class manufacturing begins with the respect for people and our planet. Because sustainability is just as much about social standards as environmental issues, we choose suppliers who share our values and commitment. Working with factories that share the same values gives us confidence that our production standards are fully met.
We work with suppliers that help us achieve zero-waste production. All fabric scraps resulting from production are kept and used to produce other products or find their way back into the circular economy to create new products.
We work with suppliers that respect and uphold the rights of employees throughout the supply chain by ensuring they are treated fairly, provided with safe, healthy, and respectful workplaces, and guaranteed a fair wage.
We strive for zero waste. We believe that every little detail counts
and makes a big difference in the long term.
Since our eco-friendly gift wrappings are used to wrap other products, we decided against separate packaging for them. This way, we can ensure that no waste is produced, and no tree is cut down just to present our products more attractively.
The internet is one of the world's largest polluters. It consumes enormous amounts of energy since the backbone of the internet consists of data centers housing millions of large servers, stacked on top of each other in racks and powered up and running 24/7.
Most hosting companies use fossil or nuclear energy, which is why we decided to go for GreenGeeks – a green energy web hosting service. GreenGeeks matches three times the amount of energy they consume from the grid in the form of renewable energy credits. This makes every website they host 300% green.
We feel great about making a difference and hope this makes you enjoy your stay on our website even more.
All online orders are sent in sustainable, reusable shipping bags
made from recycled plastic and shipped environmentally friendly with
Within the parcel, we only include necessities like a packing slip (printed on recycled grass paper to ensure no tree is cut down and CO2 usage is as low as possible), while other documents are provided digitally to minimize paper usage.
Additionally, you can use our paperless return system to reduce paper waste even further.

Good product images are one of the most important elements to avoid disappointment and returns, thus saving resources needed for delivery and return of products. Hence, we include high-resolution product shots from multiple angles. We also provide videos on how to use our products and display pictures on how to style your gifts for more inspiration.
To avoid returns of rental items, we have designed them in two colors. This way, the COVER can simply be used the other way around, if you don't like one color (or if it is unsuitable for the occasion).
To reduce orders with multiple sizes and returns based on wrong sizes (which also result in extra shipping pollution), we provide sizing examples as well as a size guide.
REUSABLE SHIPPING BAGS
In case an order has to be sent back for some reason, we ask you to send the items back in the original reusable shipping bag to reduce single-use waste.
Our gift wrappings are meant to last a lifetime. To ensure this, it is important to be mindful of how to take care of them. Therefore, we provide care instructions to extend the life cycle of our COVERs.
The care label for a specific item can be found by tapping the NFC tag on the COVER with your mobile phone or by visiting our app. If you're using our app, please click on the NFC icon ( ). If you have just one COVER checked in, please click 'HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ME'. If you have several COVERs checked in, select the one you're interested in washing, and then click 'HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ME'.
Last but not least, we recycle damaged products.
If your COVER has lost its shine, you can send it back to us, and we will take care of the disposal - allowing the material to be recycled again and again, extending its use beyond its lifetime as a gift wrap even further.
If you don't want to send it back, the fabric itself is 100% biodegradable.
Our commitment to sustainability means that we are always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental footprint and have a positive impact on the environment and society. We are grateful for the support of our customers and partners who share our vision of a more sustainable world. Together, we can make a difference and create a better future for generations to come.
