Sustainability

We have a vision!

We want to reduce landfill through responsible end-to-end production and increase consciousness of sustainability & eco-friendliness of our customers.

 

 

Made to Order

We only start making your item (s) once you have placed your order. We hold no stock, now to we produce products beyond need. This means that nothing needs to be burned to keep our brand value.

 

 

 

Local Production

We keep our shipping costs and carbon emissions low as everything is made in one facility in the UK. Your product is made under one roof and sent directly to you from London.

 

 

 Sustainable Production

We use very little water in our manufacturing process, and work with the water board to ensure ink waste is disposed of properly so nothing leaks into the environment.

 

 

 

Sustainable Products

We are always increasing our offering, and currently have a range of 100% vegan, natural, biodegradable and organic products as well as items that we produce from recycled materials. We source from the UK and EU where possible and use FSC certified materials. 

 

 

 

Waste management

We've reduced our frabric waste output by offering the fabric remnants free to crafters and DIY-ers who wanted a creative challenge. The offcuts the repurposed and some of the results have been amazing.

 

 

Who made my clothes

Of course, you want to know who made your clothe. We want you to know, it's important to us too. All our items are produced in a single facility in London. No nasty sweatshops and no horrible surprises. We ensure the best possible working conditions for the staff and do our best to make sure that they are happy at work.

 

 

 Sustainably sourced paper or wood

Wood and pulp is sourced from sustainably managed forests. Sustainably-managed forests meet the needs of wildlife while supporting livelihoods and providing many other ecosystem services, such as carbon storage and flood risk mitigation.

 

 

Local fulfilment

Our mission is to make global printing, local. According to the International Transport forum, international trade-related freight transport is responsible for 7% of all carbon emissions globally. By operating an international network of print labs — connected through our software — we help online businesses produce products closer to the end consumer to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

 

 

 

Organic

Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. We offer organic cotton options across our apparel collection.

 

 

 Plastic-free

Due to the longer times taken to biodegrade, we avoid using plastics in our products wherever practicable.

 

 

 Recycled content

We always choose products with the highest possible recycled content to include in our eco friendly ranges.

 

 

Sustainable supply chain

In addition to our own internal measures, we are continually working in partnership with our global network to improve the sustainability of both our products and services.

As part of our rigorous procurement processes, we screen our suppliers for compliance with both fair labour and sustainability standards. We look to partner where possible with suppliers who are ISO 14001, ISO 24000 or ISO 26000 compliant. We also actively seek to work with labs who use renewable energy over standard grid electricity.

As a minimum, all our partners must adhere to anti child labour and anti forced labour regulations, as well as providing traceability for all core raw materials.

 

Our sustainability action plan

Sustainability is at the core of our business, and we operate our own management system to control and mitigate our environmental impacts. Our action plan highlights a number of objectives which we track our performance against.

This includes measures to:

  • Improve the energy efficiency of our production facilities: this includes utilising energy energy efficient IT, energy efficient appliances & lighting, plus generating solar power on site at our production facilities.
  • Reduce both potable and non-potable water consumption: by installing tap aerators and hippos at all production facilities, and consuming only tap not bottled water.
  • Reduce materials usage: choosing locally sourced, recycled and reusable goods where practicable, as well as committing to digital only marketing resources, plus applying principles of Lean manufacturing across our production facilities.
  • Reduce transport carbon emissions: for our customers, by printing as local to the end consumer as possible, and for our staff — by encouraging the use of environmentally friendly transport (Cycle to Work scheme & subsidised transport in place), and off-setting any staff transport carbon impacts.
  • Reduce waste to landfill: waste is minimised and recycled wherever possible.
  • Support fair trade by purchasing only Fair Trade certified consumables across all our infrastructure.
  • Promote ethical procurement: by making ethical and sustainability factors key criteria in our selection of suppliers.
