At our London-based fashion brand, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable practices.
1. **Fair Wages and Local Support:** Our local Sewing Services have provided written confirmation of their commitment to paying fair wages to their staff, thereby supporting sustainable businesses in London. Additional details available upon request.
2. **Slow Fashion Approach:** We prioritize responsible fashion by maintaining minimal stock for sizes UK 12-18 and crafting items to order for sizes UK 10 and 20-24. This significantly reduces the generation of landfill waste.
3. **Zero Waste:** Our production process includes re-fashioning offcuts into new garments, resulting in nearly zero waste.
4. **Upcycling Commitment:** Any remaining garments are transformed into fresh and innovative pieces, ensuring nothing goes to waste.
5. **Versatile Designs:** Our dresses are designed to be versatile, suitable for various occasions. They are adjustable beyond the shown size, accommodating body shape changes. We also offer "beyond one season" pieces, ensuring your investment remains stylish over time.
6. **Comprehensive Size Guide:** Our size guide has been meticulously tested on at least two real women for each size to guarantee a perfect fit and minimize returns.
7. **Eco-Friendly Packaging:** We use recyclable and reusable packaging to reduce waste and promote sustainability.
8. **Carbon-Neutral Shipping:** We provide carbon-neutral shipping for all orders. We calculate estimated shipping emissions for each order and take steps to remove an equivalent amount of carbon from the atmosphere, contributing to a greener future.For this we utilize an app that collaborates with a range of sustainable projects, including Running Tide, Heirloom, Grassroots Carbon, and many more.
9. **Take-Back and Recycling Program:** Join our initiative to return garments for repairs or if they are underutilized, preventing them from ending up in landfills. Together, we can make a significant environmental impact.
10. **Ethical Suppliers:** We take pride in partnering with suppliers committed to ethical practices, low minimum order quantities, and fair wages.
11. **Transparency:** While I haven't visited our suppliers in South Korea in person yet, it is my intention to do so in the near future to ensure the integrity of our supply chain. Your trust in our commitment to transparency is valued, and I look forward to sharing firsthand insights into our supplier relationships.
12. **Polyester Transition:** By 2030, we aim to transition to more environmentally-friendly fabric alternatives. In the meantime, we recommend using guppy bags when laundering our garments to minimize microplastic pollution.
