Valuing people, the planet and prosperity are the driving forces for all of our creations at Eartha Underwear. In fact, these are inbuilt in everything we do.
We call this 'sustainable design' and it goes far beyond the physical product.
it is the main focus at every stage of our supply chain, from ensuring the farmers producing the fabrics are paid and work in safe condition to limiting the impact on marine life when the garment is washed by consumers.
Product designed to last. They are not trend-led, they are staples. To be worn and washed again and again.
Eartha pieces are made thoughtfully and designed with great detail focusing on the needs of the customer. Therefore, it takes time to develop each and every collection, there is nothing 'fast fashion' about it and all collections are available in limited runs and rarely replaced when sold out.
Our products are made locally and to order, ensuring we only produce as many pieces as we need to prevent waste. Any samples made are cut up and reused to design new styles from.
Eartha products are carefully packaged in plastic free packaging, each of which has its own sustainable story. For instance, our care tags are made from residual fibres and elephant dung which provides an extra income for elephant sanctuaries in India.
We are the change makers
At Eartha we believe that what we wear is as important as the food we eat and the exercise we do. Thats why we continually search high and low for materials with wellness properties.
We regularly introduce new innovative materials to our collections which are better for people and planet.
Not only do we ensure the materials we use are certified ethically produced, but all our manufacturing takes place locally and the wonderful people making our products are paid above the UK living wage.
We're positive about our carbon footprint
Eartha has been a carbon neutral company since the day it started.
Regardless of the number of products sold per month, we donate towards projects worldwide to offset any emissions we may cause. These have included tree planting and reforestation projects preserving the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, Reducing British Livestock Emissions, Reforestation in South West Australia and Hydroelectric Power Installation in Fiji.
Helping where we can
We have worked with many wonderful businesses locally and also educational instuitutions in the North of the UK to explore the positive impacts we can have as a company.
Love is love
50p from every sale made at Eartha Underwear is donated to the Trevor Project.
