What is Responsible Shopping?
Here at The Epicentre, we are committed to reducing our impact, whether this is through the items we sell or the way we go about our days in the shop. We want to help our customers to make more informed decisions when it comes to buying their clothing, that’s why we have created a new way to shop responsibly online. You can now find everything in one place, making it easier to purchase clothing that is considerate to both the environment and local communities in less developed areas.
Certified B Corp
Certified B Corp. companies meet the highest standard of social and environmental impact. They are a new kind of business model that balances purposes and profit. By prioritising inclusivity and sustainability these brands are a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good. We stock four brands that have been awarded this certification: Patagonia, Cotopaxi, tentree and Rumpl.
It’s not just about what clothes are made from; it’s how they’re made. This collection features items that have been made in Bluesign® approved factories, are Fairtrade™ sewn or use down/wool that can be traced back to the parent farm to ensure no animals were treated poorly. Feel good in what you wear, knowing you are helping to improve working conditions in factories all over the world.
Here at the Epicentre we not only sell responsible clothing but we are trying to reduce our impact in store.
Here are some of the changes we have made:
Energy Efficient LED Bulbs
We use LED light bulbs in store to reduce energy consumption and waste.
We’ve made the switch to recyclable paper bags in store to help reduce our use of plastic.
Made From Sugar Cane
Our web packaging is now made from sugarcane which is both fully recyclable and carbon neutral. This ensures that your products arrive with you fully protected from any water damage, but without adding to the world’s plastic problem.
