In 2020, following two years of testing, we unveiled our improved environmentally-conscious packaging! Continuing our journey towards greater eco-mindfulness, we've completely eradicated plastics, cable ties, and non-sustainable finishes from the packaging of both Cable Guy Original and Cable Guy R.E.S.T. For other products, we prioritise recyclable packaging wherever possible, even if cables are included.
REMOVING CABLES FROM CABLE GUYS
The first brand introduced at EXG Pro was our controller and phone holder range: Cable Guys. In the product's packaging, we included a cable (we even incorporated the term "cable" in the product name). However, after conducting further research, we realised that many of our customers already had charging cables with their devices, making our included cables unnecessary. In line with our sustainability goals, we made a conscious decision to shift to plastic-free packaging for all our products. During this transition, we opted to exclude cables from our packaging unless they are essential for powering the specific product, for example as a type C cable powers our Deluxe and IKON ranges, they are still provided.
We are dedicated to educating ourselves on responsible and sustainable business practices. We are proud members of Products of Change, an online hub fostering sustainable education and peer-to-peer learning within the consumer goods industry.
Did you know that many Cable Guy owners keep or share their products, usually passing them on to friends or family when no long in use? We aim to continue to inspire and help all of our customers to pass along the Cable Guys they aren’t using – keeping them in circulation and out of landfills. Alongside this, we also aim to continue creating long-lasting products that stand the test of time, with the aim being that products bought years ago can continue to be used and re-used for different purposes everyday in people's lives. To help make this easier to do, we are continuing to develop products that not only work as they are, but that can also be combined with other digital experiences to enhance the experience. Our hope is that, in combining a strong, well-crafted product with fresh innovative dynamic digital creations, it'll guarantee a longer lifespan for all of our products, whilst also enhancing the experience for our customers.
