Since The Shop’s inception we’ve been focussed on a responsible sourcing strategy that provides our community with a range of quality apparel and products that have been ethically produced. We’re committed to engaging with brands and suppliers where they can demonstrate appropriate accreditations and codes of conduct that define safe, fair, and humane working conditions for their supply chain.

In our retail operations we’re also dedicated to our own environmental sustainability and the environmental impacts of our packaging and shipping arrangements. You’ll find our products despatched in eco-mailers, naturally 100% home compostable and plant-based. We’ve always used recycled paper retail bags in our store and our swing tags are 100% recycled.
