We’re very proud to see that Drapers have featured our new B Corp status on their news page.
We announced last week that we have been awarded B Corp certification, which means that we’re part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact. The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’ operations and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. Over 73% of our clothing collection is made from recycled fabrics, and we send every customer order out in planet friendly biodegradable packaging. Sustainability is one of the most important values in our business, and it is at the core of everything we do.
