We’re reflecting this Zero Waste Week on the actions taken as a busines to reduce our waste and support you in making sustainable fashion purchases.
Organic cotton from sustainable resources.
The cotton used in all our t-shirts is sustainably grown in the fields of India and is produced so that it doesn’t harm, people, animals or the environment. By using organic cotton our t-shirts are soft and easy to wear.
Recycled packaging and polyester
All our packaging is from recycled paper and can also be recycled and re-used by you at home too. This is our way to keep plastic out of our supply chain.
The polyester in the hooded tops is also from recycled materials too.
But what else:
Paperless office, it also means we can take our office anywhere with a laptop and a phone!
Using bar soap rather than liquid soap in the loo! Lots of unnecessary water is used in liquid soap too so cut down on the amount of water you’re using.
The ink we use is non-toxic and vegan. No animal by-products are used to create the ink and it is never tested on animals. It’s another part of our commitment to creating sustainable clothing.
We shared a few months ago as part of plastic free July on reducing plastic waste in our everyday lives and want to share a few of these ideas again….
- make your own lunch rather than buying more plastic wrapped food
- invest in reusable containers
- cut out the plastic cutlery, use the metal cutlery from the drawer
- invest in a resalable tote bag for your picnics
- wipe away the waste and take a damp cloth with you rather than wet wipes
- buy in bulk so you’re taking plenty for all picnickers as it will save on packaging
- choose loose fruit and veg to avoid the plastic packaging
And using technology to reduce unnecessary travel when meeting our customers and suppliers.
As we’ve said before this is the start of our journey and with COP26 we want to be part of the sustainability conversation and take action.
