Get COSY! // 03/12/2021
Sustainability has been at the core of EMU Australia since the very beginning.
At our essence we believe in working with natural materials and not creating or consuming quickly,
instead taking a considered approach.
We believe that creating quality products that last, means that we allow people to make a more sustainable choice
when they invest in their footwear rather than cycling through fast fashion.
The natural wool, sheepskin and leather materials used in our products are part of the Earth's natural cycle -
they do not accumulate in the environment, instead they break down naturally into harmless compounds.
Australian Merino wool is a key material used across our collection, wool fibres biodegrade in just
6 months unlike synthetic fibres which can take up to 40 years to biodegrade.
As our journey continues, so too does our approach to sustainability.
Ocean Friendly Skincare // 03/12/2021
New sustainable skincare arriving at Cara Stores!
Why is ocean-friendly skincare important you ask?
When you wash your skin, or use skincare products in the shower or bath, the skincare ingredients literally get washed down the drain. These ingredients ultimately end up in our waterways, often easily getting past the water treatment that happens at wastewater plants.
These ingredients, particularly in the growing amounts theyâ€™ve been produced in recent decades, can be toxic to the environment. This includes marine life, such as coral, if they end up in the ocean as many do.
In addition, itâ€™s not just the ingredients that come into play here. The packaging is also important. 11 million tonnes of plastic find their way into our oceans every year, and this too is harmful to marine life. Itâ€™s important to consider the packaging of skincare before determining if it is truly ocean-friendly.
Ocean-friendly skincare avoids certain ingredients known to cause harm to marine life and is packaged in ethical sustainable packaging.

A colourful new Standard // 03/12/2021
Recycled wool. Eco friendly dyes. Zero waste processes ðŸƒ
Introducing @colorfulstandard to @cara_stores
See the collection in stores today with the first pieces online already!
''At Colorful Standard, we believe in a future where overconsumption is replaced by a more responsible way of living. Seasonal sales like Black Friday, rely on a business model with overproduction and hidden margins - that is not what we are about. Instead, we believe in offering high-quality and long-lasting products at a fair price, all year round.
This holiday season, we invite you to take a stand. Why? Because you can only wear so much, and the future of our planet depends on it! We know that the fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the world's carbon emissions, but more recent studies show that 80% of Black Friday purchases end up in a landfill after just one, or zero uses.
Ask yourself, do you really need all that?''

Nature Knows Best! // 03/12/2021
New drop for The Gift Edit!
MOA create natural and organic skincare products, made in England, inspired by old herbal folklore and with a sprinkling of magic!
Our hero herb yarrow (Achillea Millefolium), is shrouded by tales of folklore and can be found beside hedgerows all across the UK. The miraculous powers of this humble herb have been used for millennia to heal and repair. Named after Greek hero Achilles, who legend has it, used it to heal his soldiersâ€™ wounds after battle. Our original product The Green Balm continues this age-old tradition of using yarrow as a healing herb and this calming, multi-purpose balm can be used for all manner of skin ailments.
Made with carefully selected botanical ingredients to improve wellbeing and to practice a simple, yet effective daily skin care ritual. MOA formulas are cruelty free, do not use petrochemicals (mineral oil), parabens, SLS, phthalates, fillers or artificial fragrance and our newer products are entirely plant based and suitable for vegans.
In the BAG // 03/12/2021
A fresh winter drop of our favourite sporty travel packs has landed...
Created in sustainable design process and recycled materials. Tap to BAG yours!
''A bag is not just an accessory â€“ when we are on the go, itâ€™s our private space. This is where we keep our life and our secrets. A bag is our everyday companion when we go to work, pick up children, travel or rush for yoga class â€“ sometimes followed by dinner or a night out. A bag for that kind of life needs to be both functional and stylish. It should make your day easier and should take care of our daily needs. Our iconic bag, Gweneth, was an immediate success because it does exactly that. And that is the essence of all our designs.''
