WE ARE THE FIRST GENERATION TO UNDERSTAND CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE LAST GENERATION ABLE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. WHAT WE WEAR EXISTS IN A WIDER CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT WE BELIEVE IN. LET'S RAISE THE BAR.

WE SOURCE MOST OF OUR SUPPLIERS IN THE ILLAWARRA BECAUSE SUSTAINABILITY ISN’T JUST ABOUT HOW THE PRODUCTS ARE MADE BUT ALSO WHERE AND BY WHO.

OUR CLOTHES AREN'T AS SUSTAINABLE AS WE WANT THEM TO BE, BUT WE ARE WORKING ON IT. LET US TELL YOU HOW.

NOT EVERYTHING WE DO WILL BE ORGANIC OR LOW IMPACT BUT WE ARE COMMITTED TO CONTINUALLY EVOLVING AND FINDING SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE IMPACT AND EXCESSIVE USE OF THE WORLD’S RESOURCES. 

WE SOURCE FROM AUSTRALIAN SUPPLIERS AND SOMETIMES THEIR SUPPLY CHAIN IS OVERSEAS. IF THEIR OVERSEAS SUPPLY CHAIN IS TRANSPARENT, ETHICAL AND WHEREVER POSSIBLE SUSTAINABLE, WE WILL WORK WITH THEM UNTIL A DIFFERENT OPTION COMES AVAILABLE. CURRENTLY OUR TEES AND SWEATS ARE MANUFACTURED OVERSEAS FOR AN AUSTRALIAN SUPPLIER BUT WE CUSTOMISE ALL THOSE PRODUCTS IN THE ILLAWARRA. CREATING JOBS IN THE REGION IS PART OF OUR PLANS. SO WHEN YOU ASK WHY ARE OUR TEES A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN YOUR FAVOURITE MEGA-BRAND, ITS BECAUSE ALL THE WORKERS IN OUR CHAIN HAVE BEEN PAID NOT JUST A MINIMUM WAGE BUT A LIVING WAGE THAT SUPPORTS THEIR BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY AS WELL AS OURS.

OUR PACKAGING IS EITHER ALREADY RECYCLED OR RECYCLABLE. THIS MEANS OUR POSTAGE BAGS ARE COMPOSTABLE SO THEY DO NOT FURTHER DAMAGE OUR ALREADY DAMAGED WORLD. WE HAVE ALL WATCHED DAVID ATTENBOROUGH ON NETFLIX, SO LET’S NOT PRETEND WE HAVEN’T AND IGNORE OUR RESPONSIBILITIES.

AS PART OF OUR ACTION PLAN WE ALREADY SUPPORT THE ‘2 MINUTE BEACH CLEAN’ STARTED IN CORNWALL, UK SO IT'S GREAT THAT IN AUSTRALIA WE HAVE ‘TAKE 3 FOR THE SEA’ - #TAKE3 – AND SO WE WILL BE POSTING ABOUT IT OFTEN AND CELEBRATING LOCAL HEROES THAT KEEP OUR LITTLE PART OF THE GLOBE SO PRISTINE. AT EVERY TURN.
