We have started how we mean to go on, by continually striving to make improvements that make a real difference in relation to environmental impact. Here are some of the key things we do
Our priority is to remove all excess and unnecessary packaging. We have removed single use poly bags from over half of our product range and only use where absolutely essential to protect items in transit and warehouse storage.
We use printed QR codes for product information where possible instead of single use tags.
Where packaging cannot be removed, we use compostable and recyclable where possible and ensure we use the minimal amount of packaging for the items you have ordered - no massive boxes with tiny items in them from us!
For exchanges, we reuse packaging that customers have sent back to us where possible.
Quality products that last a long time are paramount to reducing environmental impact. We test and sample the best quality fabrics and components to ensure our products can withstand the tests of trail running. We also provide detailed care instructions to ensure the long life of garments and other accessories.
We don’t dispose of any products which could still be functional. Ex demo products from photoshoots and items with small faults are all saved. We use them for further demo purposes, donate to charities or sell on at a discounted price.
We have a range of t-shirts and caps made from recycled fabrics that contain up to 16 recycled plastic bottles for each item.
Reducing Transport Emissions
We use sea shipping as a priority and air shipping only as a back up in emergencies. This helps us to lower our carbon footprint. All of our shipping cartons are reused or recycled too.
Because we use sea shipping, this can sometimes take up to 4 months in transit, followed by up to 6 months in warehouse storage. Hence the need for polybags and protective packaging on some of our products to ensure they reach customers in perfect condition.
