We have chosen to work with producers who pride themselves in having sustainable values such as ours.
Whilst researching sustainable fashion during the setting up of Greater Love, we were shocked to read and hear the conditions some factory workers are made to work within, and the damage irresponsible fashion is doing to our environment. It has made us re-revaluate our own clothing choices and ethics.
Therefore, it is vitally important to us that our clothing has been manufactured using the best raw materials; grown or produced in ways that have minimal impact on people or the environment.
Our clothing manufacturers subscribe to the ‘Fair Wear Foundation’ ensuring a fair wage is paid to all the staff (over the minimal wage) and our headwear manufacturers subscribe to similar ethical standards, adhering to REACH legislation. They have a number of mechanisms in place to ensure decent working conditions, such as an internal Code of Conduct, monthly reports and daily visits to factories.
We also use local and independent suppliers where possible who follow similar sustainability values to ourselves.
As individuals who try to reduce, reuse and recycle in our daily lives, it is important that our packaging, as best as we can, is made from recyclable or compostable material with minimal or zero plastic.
