Our Pact to the Planet

We know that there is no easy fix when it comes to sustainability. We’re at the start of our sustainability journey and we understand that it is an ongoing learning process and that we must continually adapt and improve our processes to ensure that we are at the forefront of good sustainable practices. We do though ensure that where we have choices, we put sustainability first. Because we want to create the best possible world for our little ones, now and in the future and to do that we have to make sure that we’re looking after the planet that we all call home.

The fashion industry has an awful lot to answer for when it comes to impacting the environment and so we have only chosen brands and suppliers that share the same values as we do. We’re not about fast fashion so we have chosen brands that we believe create items that are as gorgeous today as they will be for generations to come.

We only use packaging that is recyclable or has been recycled and omit all single use plastic wherever possible. The suppliers that we have chosen also are GOTS certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres and only textile products that have a minimum of 70% organic fibres are able to become GOTS certified. Importantly to become GOTS certified you must meet these high standards, as well as meeting their ecological and social criteria across your entire textile social criteria.

However, we know that there is more that we can, and should do. That’s why we have partnered with Ecologi. Ecologi exist to help people and organisations tackle the climate crisis and through our partnership we will become a Climate Positive Workforce. Every month, we make contributions to fund the world’s best climate crisis solutions. Every month, the contributions we make plant groves of trees in our very own company forest, and finance carbon reduction projects from around the world.
