Over the past few months, it has felt like we’ve been trying to run through quicksand at the Long Wknd HQ as we’ve been enhancing our production facility. We moved our operations to Austin, TX and found a new fulfillment and shipping center in Dallas to reduce our carbon emissions. After meeting both teams, we got to work.
- We’re providing more compact, recyclable packaging to eliminate excess space
- We’re reducing packaging and consolidating our shipments
- We’re hand-pouring our products in even smaller batches once they’ve been ordered
- We’re putting in place the structure to source our ingredients locally
Unfortunately, making sure that our new facilities met our eco-friendly standards and clearing customs from Canada (where we were previously hand-poured and shipped) took longer than expected.
During this time, we asked ourselves, “What else can we do to make our brand a better experience?” The answer was simple — build a more intuitive website. After re-reading hundreds of customer reviews, inquiries and Instagram DMs, we created it.
Next on our list? Launching our mobile app that will allow early access to new product launches, new scents and exclusive content with eco-experts.
We’ve tried to speed up these processes because of how excited we were to get back out into the world. Throughout this journey, we’ve been forced to be patient and it has reminded us how grateful we are for each and every single one of you.
Thank you for allowing us to come back with not only a new look, but a re-energized ethos.
