Our roadmap to becoming a truly sustainable business is a long one, but we’re taking great strides in the right direction. Implementing changes within our product design and supply chain takes time and is a resource intensive process.
To do nothing in the interim was not an option for us, and so in early 2017 we made the pledge to donate 1% of our annual sales to help protect the environment. We are working to determine the beneficiaries of our donation and once decided 1% for the Planet certifies our giving.
While we work towards sustainable production we are taking steps to improve other aspects of our business wherever possible. Our office and warehouse are 100% solar powered and thanks to Byron’s constant sunshine we are able to feed our excess power back into the grid and allow other businesses to purchase green power. We use Forest Stewardship Certified paper wherever possible and opt for recycled, biodegradable or compostable packaging where practical. Our office and warehouse are also 95% paperless - saving around 30,000 sheets of paper per year.
We have a strong action plan in place to guide us towards becoming a sustainable fashion business and we look forward to updating you on our progress over the coming months and years.
