Big dog workwear Eco Initiative
“WE BELIEVE IN STRIVING TO PROVIDE GARMENTS THAT ARE RESPECTFULLY PRODUCED WITH AS MUCH CARE FOR THE EARTH AND THE PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE ALONG THE WAY”
This means that the people who produce our garments have dignified working conditions, respecting the rights of the employee, teaching them new skills and providing education.
The facilities where our garments are produced are monitored every day. ALL are GOTS certified and audited by the FAIR WEAR Foundation.
GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard. GOTS tracks the entire chain of production from farm to factory, from the harvesting of cotton, weaving of fibres, assembly of garments to the final product.
Our garments are provided by a supplier who are proudly PETA certified. This means that they do not commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations or finished products and they pledge never to do so.
GOTS also ensures compliance with the labour standards of the International Labour Organisation throughout the chain of production.
The garments are made from 100% vegan materials so our customers can be confident that no harm came to anyone during product creation.
Whether you choose to shop with us online, order over the phone or visit us in store, we are committed to providing excellent service every time. Whatever you need, don’t be afraid to ask.
Organic Cotton is used in 95% of our product range.
Organic Cotton is a natural, GMO free fibre that uses less water than standard cotton. Also, during production, there are no harmful chemicals used (fertilisers or pesticides) and the rotation of crops is encouraged to help keep the soil healthier and more fertile.
During the production process of our garments, cotton waste is naturally created. As part of the recycling process, the waste material is collected and new Recycled Cotton thread is created that is used in other products from our range.
Bigdog Workwear garments are produced to the Global Recycled Standard, and this certifies that the materials are recycled : In the case of polyester, from plastic bottles, and for cotton, from cutting waste. GRS also guarantees compliance with the social and environmental criteria such as treatment of waste water, the absence of certain toxic additives and respect for working conditions in all partner factories. All production factories are monitored for working conditions, rights, teaching and education.
