Ethics & Sustainability

In an era defined by global challenges and environmental consciousness, we are committed to leading the way in ethical and sustainable practices. We believe that our actions today have a profound impact on tomorrow, and as such, we are dedicated to prioritising social responsibility, environmental management, and ethical sourcing across all aspects of our business. From supply chain transparency to eco-friendly materials, our ethics and sustainability goals are integral to our mission of creating a better world for future generations.

By partnering with suppliers and factories who share our values and adhere to strict ethical standards, we can guarantee that our uniforms are produced under fair and safe working conditions. Additionally, we conduct regular audits and assessments to monitor compliance and address any issues that may arise, ensuring accountability and integrity at every stage of production.

We believe that every worker deserves to be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness which is why we are committed to upholding fair labour practices across our supply chain. Our suppliers are required to provide fair wages, safe working conditions, and opportunities for professional development and advancement.

ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS MUST BE MET

Factories must strive to reduce their carbon footprint through the use of renewable energy and focus on reducing their negative impact on the environment.

We recognise our responsibility to minimise our environmental footprint and protect natural resources for future generations. That's why we are committed to integrating environmental sustainability into every aspect of our operations, from product design to packaging and distribution. We prioritise the use of eco-friendly materials, such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, and biodegradable fibers, to reduce our reliance on finite resources and minimise waste. Additionally, we are continually seeking innovative solutions to reduce energy consumption, water usage, and greenhouse gas emissions throughout our supply chain.

Through our current initiatives we already…

•Save over 250,000 single-use plastic bags from going to landfills, utilising sugar cane, and recyclable alternatives.

•Donate hundreds of redundant garments to charitable causes

•Work with business partners that have similar commitments to supporting UK communities and reducing carbon emissions of importation.

•Instead of producing items to hand out at conferences that may end up in landfills or use copious amounts of wastewater and other materials to produce, plant trees for conference attendees and stand visitors on their behalf.

By designing durable, long-lasting uniforms actively supporting second-hand functions within schools, we aim to minimise waste and extend the lifespan of our products. Through partnerships with local communities, charities, and recycling facilities, we facilitate the reuse and repurposing of old uniforms, ensuring that they remain out of landfills and contribute to a more circular and sustainable economy.

By aligning ourselves with likeminded brands, we continue to grow a support network of responsible meaningful initiatives that gives our school partners and their parents access to responsibly sourced products and services.
