Sustainability

Product

We’re putting more sustainable materials at the centre of our product ranges.

Through the materials we choose for our own brand products, we want to protect the planet and give our customers sustainable choices. That means providing options which are manufactured considering waste, water usage and climate impact.

We’ve partnered with Jeanologia to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing our own brand denim products through an innovative process that reduces energy and water consumption and removes hazardous chemicals. We’re also increasing our ranges that include more sustainable cotton, with 75% of cotton we use now coming through the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI). And we’ve lowered the impact of our school-uniform range by introducing recycled polyester into the main lines.

For our home products, we’ve enhanced the sustainability of our timber ranges, and we work with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). We continue to use BCI cotton in our home ranges and have started to introduce recycled polyester.
