Our Positive Impact

We’ve Been Doing Our Maths

By creating from waste materials instead of virgin fibres we are proud to say we have made some key savings. And this is only the beginning.


plastic bottles recycled from landfills and oceans across the world


litres of oil saved by using recycled materials


litres of water saved by using recycled materials

How do we measure these?

Working with our key partners we are able to calculate the savings based on how much fabric we consume in our collections.

For example, we use recot²® yarn for our t-shirts, which is a blend of 25% recycled cotton (from cotton waste) and 75% organic cotton.

As a result of using this yarn, and with their latest state of the art spinning technology, 5,000 litres of water can be saved for every kilogram of recot² yarn used.

We used 143kg’s of yarn for the production of all our t-shirts and saved 715,000 litres of water!
