FAIR TRADE FASHION
While many fashion brands talk about 'corporate social responsibility' or 'ethical fashion', we go further. We follow the principles of Fair Trade in every aspect of our business. All of our products are made by artisans and producers who work to Fair Trade standards. People Tree has been a pilot case for certification for Fair Trade Manufacture under the World Fair Trade Organisation and we were the world's first clothing company to receive the World Fair Trade Organisation Fair Trade product mark in 2013.


SUSTAINABLE FASHION
People Tree developed the first integrated supply chain for organic cotton from farm to final product and we were the first organisation anywhere to achieve GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification on a supply chain entirely in the developing world.
We also work hard to ensure that we pioneer sustainable methods of production to minimise environmental impact. Not only is the majority of our cotton certified organic and Fairtrade, all our clothes are dyed using safe and azo-free dyes. We source as many products as we can locally, choosing natural and recycled products over synthetic and non-biodegradable materials. We ship as many of our products as we can by sea, instead of air, and weave fabric by hand, reducing our impact on global warming.
