Sustainability

MISSON:

  • sand&palm maintains a high level of environmental and social responsibility in all areas.

  • sand&palm only uses materials and production processes that do not have a harmful impact on the environment or people.

  • It strives to be a conscious producer for conscious consumers.

  • By using sustainable and responsible materials, sand&palm aims to increase awareness of the importance of protecting the environment and people against the harmful impacts of mass clothing production.

     

MATERIALS:

  • Lycra: Our lycra is made from 100% regenerated nylon from ghost fishing nets, as well as other post consumer plastic waste. Find out more about our global ocean plastic crisis here.

  • Bikini bags: These are made from organic calico.

  • Labels: 100% organic cotton

  • Tags: 100% recycled paper

  • Tag string: Organic hemp.

  • Cardboard packaging: 100% recycled paper

  • Clothing and beachwear: For these we use organic hemp. Hemp is one of the most sustainable crops on the planet. Find out more here: https://www.thehempshop.co.uk/why-hemp?

     

PRINTING AND DYEING:

  • sand&palm lycra is hand-dyed in small batches to minimise waste. We then screen print in-house using water based, eco-friendly dyes.

  • sand&palm beachwear is dyed using sustainably sourced natural plant dyes. It is then either screen printed using plant based inks, or hand painted using the same. No toxic waste here guys!

     

PRODUCTION: 

sand&palm products are made by the Vicki in her studio in Newquay. Items are made to order and we keep a small amount of stock so nothing goes to waste.

GARMENT CARE: 

Wash with care. Dry naturally. Love unconditionally.

 

POST CONSUMER:

As long as you look after and care for your sand&palm pieces, they will last you a long time and accompany you on many adventures. Should you wish for a change (it's only natural) please don't throw them away - offer them to a friend, exchange them for something else, take them to a clothing bank or a charity shop.
