Corporate Social Responsibility




“Since 2007 - when we created the ‘I’m Not a Plastic Bag’ project - we have leveraged the impact and platform that the fashion industry provides to deliver the message of responsible actions and behaviour. We are constantly looking at the best way of doing things in each area of our business, from supply chain and materials to our team and charitable endeavours.”

Packaging
We love the power of the written word, but our packaging and communications were using too much paper. For
AW20 we have removed unnecessary paperwork by switching to online returns. All of our card,
paper and tissue are now FSC certified. We have removed non-compostable plastic, foam and silica gel packs
from all products and even switched to a cellulose based packaging tape and soy based inks. Our carrier bags
are recyclable and all of our printed materials are made from recycled paper.

Materials
As well as the pioneering coated recycled plastic canvas, we have also made changes to our supply chain for other materials. Where we have stock of materials, we are using those up first (as that feels like the right thing to do) but we have already started transitioning to and working with textiles that are certified by Oeko-Tex, Global Organic Textile Standard and Global Recycle Standard. They are a member of the Better Cotton Initiative, as well as the Leather Working Group. These materials include recycled nylon (Econyl), recycled canvas, recycled satin and recycled sequins. We have replaced PU with TPU and are looking at all leather options. We are also finding interesting ways to use up leather off-cuts that would have otherwise gone to waste.


People
Our code of conduct includes corporate policies that support anti-corruption, human rights, labour, equal opportunities, diversity and health and safety. We audit the factories we partner with on a regular basis.
