Sustainability


Plastic pollution can now be found on every beach in the world. Anywhere from busy tourist beaches to uninhabited, tropical islands, nowhere is safe. Approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans every day. Every Day. Just let that sink in. We have a responsibility to the planet to do as little harm as possible. Nobody is perfect but we can at least try.

Despite being a small brand we at Olly Olly & co want to prove that it is possible to do things the right way and ensure that every step of our supply chain has ethical standards, sustainable manufacturing and carbon footprint considerations at its core.

 We do this by only working with people who are aligned to our values. This slows the process but allows us to be considerate of the environment and its people at every single step of the journey.

 

Fabric

All of our garments are made out of ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets. They perform in the same way as traditional nylon giving great shape and muscular compression. The Italian fabric mill we work with have a multitude of certifications such as OEKO-TEX which ensures the dyes used are non toxic.

 

The Factory

Our premium activewear is manufactured in Portugal in a factory that strictly adheres to European Standards of Labour. We ship our stock to the UK instead of flying it to reduce our carbon footprint.

We don’t use labels inside our activewear, instead we have a non-toxic label stamp to reduce waste.

 

Our Packaging and Distribution

 All our packaging is eco-friendly. We use compostable mailers and recycled(as well as recyclable) tissue paper. Our tags are made from FSC approved, recycled paper and our string is made from hemp.

We distribute your beautiful garments using 100% carbon neutral shipping.

 

We have put so much thought and consideration into every step of the journey and we hope you love each garment as much as we do!
