At Scribbler we are committed to making changes wherever and whenever possible to reduce our impact on our planet - be that people, animals or the natural environment.
Being a small, home-based business means we aren't always able to use all recycled materials in the manufacture of our garments, since our order count is too low, but we are committed to doing what we can, when we can.
For example, our latest puffer vest (Adia) is the first in our range where we have included a filler not made from down, but from recycled PET/plastic bottles and polyester. This means we are reducing our impact on animals as well as reducing the amount of single use plastic that ends up in landfill.
We also try where we can, to reduce the use of single use plastics in the every day running of our business - we use compostable mailers and cardboard boxes when sending out orders and try to only use recyclable materials like our custom made paper stickers. Any soft plastics or paper that is generated in our home office are recycled on a regular basis.
One area we can make a difference, is with the people who make our garments. We have partnered with an excellent technical jacket supplier who is based in Xiamen, China who follows the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) programme. This programme includes third-party audits which grade members on different areas of their operation - working conditions, protection of the environment and ethical business behaviour. There is an incentive to constantly be improving on their grading each time they are audited, meaning continuous reflection and growth.
We are committed to constantly improve
We aren't perfect, but we are committed to making changes wherever we can, whenever we can. We want to do our part in reducing our impact on our living planet as much as we can.
