The journey to sustainability is ongoing and it’s one that Tiny Tortle is committed to.
Recently we have:
- Switched our plastic delivery bags to recycled cardboard boxes.
- Cut out the use of bubble wrap to pack our online orders and have switched to fully recyclable paper ‘hexwrap’, when needed.
- Continued to increase the amount we recycle and have increased our waste recycling rate by 55% in the past year.
100% OF THE COTTON FOR OUR COTTON PRODUCTS IS NOW SUSTAINABLY SOURCED.
We have been making the move to only stocking 100% cotton short sleeve and long sleeve t-shirts for the past few months, but we are now proud to be able to say that 100% of the cotton for our cotton products is now sustainably sourced.
WE’RE COMMITTED TO ANIMAL WELFARE.
We are dedicated to safeguarding the welfare of animals farmed to produce the materials used in our products. You won’t find any down or feathers, fur, angora or mohair in our products.
We have also ensured that all our clothing dyes have been tested for their environmental impact; the dye dilutes in the water to a safe level (for humans and animals) and can be dealt with effectively in the sewage system.
WE ONLY WORK WITH SUPPLIERS WHO SHARE OUR VALUES.
Here at Tiny Tortle, we ensure we purchase only the highest standard of ethically sourced blank clothing from our UK suppliers.
All products are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified. This is an independent certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production.
The operations in India and China are also BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) compliant, which is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the improvement of working conditions in the supply chain with our factory audited against the BSCI base code.
Operations are also Sedex certified (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) which is a not-for-profit membership organisation for businesses committed to the continuous improvement of ethical performance within their supply chains.
