The Narcis'sips Mission
Our mission is to make the healthy and sustainable option affordable in Ireland.
We hope to help educate & motivate the people of Ireland to take their first steps on their sustainable journey by helping them see both the short and long term benefits of choosing Narcissips for their health, pockets whilst inevitably working towards a greener Ireland!
As part of our Strategy we had two core goals and guiding principles; to provide sustainably priced, durable & fashionable reusables to our Customers and to limit our Carbon Footprint as a Company.
To develop our sleek, styled and sophisticated range of Drinkware we followed the Japanese Lean Manufacturing Principles of "Muda" to minimise all wasteful elements from our procurement & supply chain processes. In reviewing these processes we noticed how much of an impact the actual packaging & delivery methods has on our carbon footprint especially as it's inevitably discarded upon purchase.
We then opted to choose three simple solutions which ultimately benefitted our customers and our carbon footprint.
By choosing to use a minimalist design for our packaging, unlike the usual chic and complex packaging that most companies use to "woo" customers, it enabled us to create various efficiencies and reduce costs so we could pass the savings onto our customers. We then also try our best to implement "Just in Time" inventory practices to cut out wasteful elements, costs and inefficiencies.
Lastly, we are blessed that Ireland, and especially Dublin is a small and compact city. This enabled us to implement our final carbon footprint, cost saving & customer friendly initiative where we provided an option for free delivery within Dublin City. This allows me to personally hand delivery bottles using nothing more than my bicycle and a smile to say hello and personally thank our customers for choosing Narcissips and helping work towards a greener Ireland, together.
Viva la revolución!
