ETHICS + SUSTAINABILITY

Bec + Bridge is investing in the future by looking beyond profit towards greater sustainability, accountability and transparency. This means constantly reassessing our practises to reduce our impact on the environment, our people and our supply chain.

Bec + Bridge has put in place an internal recycling system for our head office. Our fabric off cuts are collected and provided to other local businesses to be repurposed, such as to make napkins for a sustainable catering business.

Bec + Bridge are committed to repairing all faulty garments before replacing them and we will have phased out any non-recyclable elements from our online packaging before mid 2020.

Our in store retail bags are made from sustainably sourced materials and are 100% biodegradable. Our garment swing tags are made from recycled paper and our sew in labels are made from 100% recycled polyester produced from plastic bottles that have been recycled and converted into polyester yarn. Our new online packaging is made from limestone off-cuts and can be recycled with your soft plastics. We encourage our customers to reuse these bags where possible.

On top of this we have set some goals. By 2021 we will have eradicated single use plastic from our stores and shoot locations, and we will continue to minimise our impact on the environment through internal initiatives such as keep cups and the purchase of sustainable office supplies and non-toxic cleaning supplies. We will continue to embrace new ways of creating, using and reclaiming our resources.

Bec + Bridge works with reputable manufacturers who are known for their quality practice and ethical standards. We co-create our collections with makers that we’ve known for years, and partner with Australian and global suppliers who share our ethical principles. Bec + Bridge believes in a balanced lifestyle and have made this philosophy a priority for every single employee.

Transparency is important to us and we want you to see each step of our production process, from our pattern makers and cutters to our recycling practices. Watch our Meet Our Makers film for an insight into what goes on behind the scenes in the creation of a Bec + Bridge garment.
