We’re committed to improving our sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment in all areas
– we think it’s import to look to real commitment and changes and avoid just ‘greenwashing’ –
as part of this we’re also committed to helping you reduce your impacts, without you even needing to think about it!
We are not here to preach to you – we believe this is a journey we take together.
As a technical outdoor manufacturer, we have always been invested in ensuring we look after the planet’s resources wisely.
It’s been the cornerstone of our DNA to ensure that we manufacture durable technical clothing responsibly and without breaking your bank balance.
That’s why for over 40 years we have had a repair centre here in Glenrothes. Making products last longer and offering a repair service to prolong garments is a key factor of what we do.
But can we do better? Of course! We can all do better.
It’s by working together that we can make a difference – even a small change made by many people can add up to a big impact.
So this can include things like washing items less or at a lower temperature (which we are encouraging through changes in our care guidance)
– as well as items we look at as a company, such as ensuring all of our designs are robust and can last a lifetime of adventures!
As we take this journey together, we welcome your involvement, stories and participation.
So how do we go about this? Trying to do the right thing is not always easy.
We like others take a measured approach using our 5 R’s as our guidelines to help our team and our suppliers work towards a greener and more sustainable future without ‘greenwashing’.
Part of this is covered by our Legacy Project (launching soon! – and with selected retailers in 2023)
To help us keep track of what we’re doing, we keep an eye on the leaves, the branches, and the trees.
