"FAST FASHION ISN'T FREE. SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE IS PAYING" (LUCY SIEGLE)
Conscious and sustainable fashion is core to Love Sweat + Tees. We don't claim to be perfect but we do promise to be transparent and to continuously improve. For us, our commitment to conscious fashion is not a marketing tool, it's a way of being.
We're constantly evolving but want to tell you a bit more about where we are on our journey.
All of our sweats and tees are produced to the highest quality with respect for people and the planet. Our garments are printed in the UK using 100% vegan and phthalate free inks. All of our garments are:
ORGANIC / RECYCLED
We only use 100% GOTS certified organic cotton from India or recycled polyester from China.
GOTS ensures traceability throughout the supply chain and covers raw materials and social aspects relating to the health and well-being of the producers.
Our recycled polyester is certified by the Global Recycled Standard, the world's leading authority on recycled textiles.
FAIR WEAR CERTIFIED
All of our base garments are made in Bangladesh by a Fair Wear Certified manufacturer that has been identified as a leader in the field and accredited with Fair Wear Leader status. This status recognises that they go above and beyond many Fair Wear certified producers. Fair Wear Certification is based on eight pillars:
Our garments are all certified vegan by PETA.
Minimising our environmental impact is an ongoing journey. We have recently reviewed our packaging, removed anything unnecessary (your invoice is now sent digitally, for example) and switched to environmentally friendly paper bags.
CLIMATE POSITIVE WORKFORCE
We work with Ecologi to plant a tree for every order placed with us through our website
We believe in slow fashion, seasonless and ageless style.
We only use packaging that is Foresty Stewardship Council certified and / or recycled and aim to keep our packaging to a minimum. Even the cord we use to attach the swing tickets to our garments is made from jute, selected because it is 100% biodegradable.
