Sustainability Statement

We are an Australian family owned and run company that strives to keep sustainability at the heart and core of our business. Many factors are involved in what makes a business and it’s products sustainable – we deeply care about the environment and the world our children will inherit. We also care about the economic and social sustainability practices important to Australia.

We limit the impact of our production process in everyway possible and strive to limit the environmental impact of our products by producing durable, low-maintenance items that will last a lifetime.

We refer to some of our processes below to highlight the sustainability assets we are proud off.

  • All of our products are handcrafted in our studio at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast,Queensland, Australia. (No robotic machines, oversea’s freight, or overseas labour. We support local to sustain our local economy).
  • Our bathware products are made from our unique resin composite material Oxyform TM it has been designed with durability, longevity and sustainability in mind. Comparatively our production methods use minimal energy and resources.

OxyformTM is a Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) material that cures when exposed to oxygen, no ovens or water is involved in the production of our products.

  • Each basin is sculpted specific to measurement, leaving no wastage or clean-up after each basin is crafted.
  • Our basins are easy to maintain. Due to the dense, non porous surface our basins are stain and bacteria resistant and clean up easily with soapy water. No harsh chemicals required. And no on-going maintenance waxes or sealers needed.
  • In the unlikely event of damage to the surface of a basin, it can be easily polished or repaired over the lifetime of the product.
  • Our bathware is substantially lighter in weight compared to other sanitary-ware products (such as ceramic solid surface or concrete) therefore requires less energy in terms of building elements, transport, and installation.
  • Our unique colouring system flows through the entire product which ensures repeated consistent colour matching and no samples are discarded.
  • All of our packaging is recyclable and sourced through Australian suppliers.

Thank you for supporting The Basin Lab – an all Australian company.
