Staying true to our objective to minimise our environmental impact, we continue to work with our manufacturing partners to ensure that there is complete clarity in our supply chain, so you can be sure that we are working to the highest ethical, social and environmental standards we can.
Our latest commitment to our objective sees us launch range of sustainable products that have been farmed in the most resourceful manner and made from the most natural materials. Let’s take a look at what makes these products sustainable.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, therefore have a low impact on the environment. Certification is awarded to producers who use recognised agricultural methods and who farm the most natural resources.
The Polyester element in our PR120 Apron is made entirely from plastic bottles – making it 100% recycled! Using existing plastics means there less extraction of raw materials, resulting in less carbon emissions and of course there the benefit of keeping it away from our landfills. Recycled polyester gives in the same technical fabric performance, but with a lesser carbon footprint.
The Fairtrade Foundation awards farmers and growers with a Fairtrade status that enables that they get a fair price and better trade conditions for the cotton they produce and they sell. This in-turn allows them to improve their living conditions and makes for a more socially conscientious supply chain. Any Cotton we source from these farmers for our products has the Fairtrade logo visible on the product page on our website.
You can read about the certifications of compliance that our manufacturing partners have been awarded with, so there is social, ethical and environmental clarity in the supply changes from source, right through the manufacturing process.
