RESPONSIBILITY

Environmental Responsibility

We understand that being a socially & environmentally responsible business in today’s global community is of growing and great importance. We are endlessly working on becoming more conscious in our everyday practices and policies. In our overall mission to improve and become more sustainable, we ultimately aspire to deliver social & environmental benefits to all of our stakeholders.


We have been persistent in seeking & adopting new practices whilst also refining our own. To minimise our carbon footprint on the environment we adopted a carbon offset feature provided by Climate Friendly Cart. This feature gives customers the option to donate in order to help reduce their own personal carbon footprint. The customer is also given the option of choosing which project the donation will help. Offering customers the option to reduce the impact their purchase has on the environment facilitates a responsible way to shop within the industry.


Furthermore, in a bid to become more sustainable & eco-friendly we use compostable mailers for all our online orders. Manufactured by noissue, a business focussed on delivery eco-friendly packaging to multiple businesses. The mailers are composed using a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable & PLA (field corn/wheat straw). The PLA usage makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource. The bags can be composted at home (worm farms) or dropped off at commercial compost points.

Partnerships

Dress for Success is a not-for-profit organisation that empowers women by providing them with the development tools to achieve economic independence and help them thrive in both work and life. This global movement and overall vision for a world where the power of women can be harnessed and recognised is something that we strongly believe in. In our mission we have contributed over 200 pairs of shoes to Dress for Success to help women feel confident and strong as they seek and encounter new employment opportunities.


A very popular and worldwide movement in the fashion industry has been the continuous endeavour to find methods of recycling. In particular, Save our Soles is an initiative working primarily with footwear. This programme has been adopted by multiple brands & corporations, many of which are also collaborating with other brands to offer their recycling services. We have made it a core element of our business to reprocess & find ways in which to reuse our past season styles. Working with Save our Soles has meant we have been able to take responsibility for our business recycling and repurposing to ensure no shoes reach landfill.
