I see it as my responsibility to act ethically and morally in all areas of running a business.
- My mailing bags are made from 100% recycled plastic and are recyclable and biodegradable.
- I endeavour to be honest, open and fair whenever I deal with buyers and sellers.
- Through research I have established a pricing structure, ensuring that my costs are met whilst keeping the price as low as possible for my customers.
- I continuously self-regulate my buying and selling strategies, to ensure fairness.
- In all my marketing I am open and clear about sourcing materials, the production process, and the quality of the product.
- When outsourcing the making of products, I ensure I treat my colleagues with respect in relation to working conditions and payment.
- I make sure that I compete fairly with other companies producing similar tie dye products.
- I genuinely embrace and respect the free market.
- My books and records are kept meticulously and honestly.
My blank t-shirts and hoodies are currently made in the USA, however, I buy them from a company less than a mile away. British made t-shirts can be sourced, as can clothing in organic fabrics, so if that is something that you would like to see, then please speak to me about it further.
When I am trading at festivals I try to keep my ecological footprint down to a minimum. I choose not to use the power supplied in favour of my portable solar panel. This charges a small leisure battery which powers my lights and my phone which I use to take card payments. If a customer asks for a bag, then I have recycled paper bags to offer, however, I find that a lot of people choose to go without. I recycle the majority of my waste and reuse items as much as possible. A lot of my stall fittings have been bought second hand, and I pledge to keep making changes to make the stall as sustainable and conscious as possible.
