At Pretty Pickled we don't just throw around the S word. We're committed to reducing our impact on the environment, without compromising on quality or style!
When you order one of our sustainable t-shirts or sweaters you're not just signing up for super soft 100% organic cotton clothing; you're saying no to fast fashion and yes to fair conditions for workers, yes to sustainable production methods and yes to respecting our planet.
Raw Materials - Our clothing is made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, sourced from India, and our tote bags are made from recycled cotton and polyester, certified to Global Recycling Standard. All our items are Peta Approved Vegan and tested for harmful substances.
Supply Chain - We use suppliers that put the planet first and only adopt healthy environmental practices. Our supply chain is assessed and certified by the best:
Embroidery - Our items are designed and embroidered in the UK. All of our embroidery is eco embroidery, using 100% natural rayon viscose thread which is made from wood pulp from sustainably managed forests. The thread is produced in a factory that's powered by renewable energy. They use recycled water and energy recovery for climate-neutral thread drying. Our thread is both plastic free and vegan.
Working Conditions - Pretty Pickled is sweatshop free. Our products are made in Bangladesh factories that are audited every three years by FairWear Foundation - an international organisation that aims to improve workers’ conditions in the textile industry. After extensive audits these factories have been attributed 'Leader' status.
Packaging - We've chosen to make Pretty Pickled a plastic-free business and so we only use sustainable, compostable or recycled packaging. All our items are sent from Edinburgh and come with swing tags made of 100% recycled uncoated card. Each order is then wrapped in eco-friendly acid free tissue paper before being posted to you in a certified home compostable, fully biodegradable mailing satchel partly made from plants. Our packaging is made using renewable energy and it's close to zero waste. Each compostable bag is waterproof, tough, tear resistant and re-usable. Each order contains a flyer which is printed on recycled paper.
We've done our best to bring you quality food and drink embroidered clothing that doesn't cost or harm the earth. But there's always room for improvement! If you've got any suggestions on how we can do things better then we'd absolutely love to hear from you. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
