The fact that we produce in Ireland means far less travel miles for your products, this significantly reduces carbon emissions for products.
We reduce waste through considered pattern cutting
Through our partnership with MACE our unavoidable offcuts (that can’t be made into alternative products) are recycled off shore and returned as textiles that can be used for new products.
Our print workshop uses only water-based dyes (TRISH), which has a much better environmental footprint than other toxic polluting dyes.
We use only 100% bio-degradable packaging
All paper products are recycled
We have policies to reduce electricity use, and have selected a workshop with generous natural lighting
Our own range of products, sources from either recycled/reclaimed materials or uses natural fibres with high production standards (i.e. GOTS)
We provide on the job training for people who come from marginalised backgrounds. It may be that they have been in prison or are on probation, or that they have completed drug rehabilitation. In this cases, some of our staff have never previously had a job, or not had one for many years. For others on the team, they have to come to Ireland as a refugee and are building their life here with a need for new language and work skills. In all cases our staff initially need support to develop confidence in their ability and to build a new supportive community. We do this by creating individual support plans and taking a flexible approach to helping them develop new workplace or communication skills. All our staff become skilled in their areas and become partners in our goal of growing and creating opportunities for others. After three years or when people are ready, whatever comes first, we help people find new mainstream work, so that we can support new people on this life changing journey.
As soon as trainees have completed their first trainee phase (3 – 12 months), having developed basic sewing/workplace skills, they receive living wage, prior to this in the first training phase they receive minimum wage.
