We believe that a good product must be delivered with traceability, accountability and social responsibility. These values are key to Project Plan B and are at the centre of how we work.
We have carefully selected long term strategic partnerships with suppliers and manufacturers that uphold our standards and values, all of whom are independently audited.
Upholding these values is a commitment to constantly monitor quality at every stage of the manufacture and delivery process, ensuring that the ethos of Designed to be Recycled is maintained.
Commitment to the Environment
By using recycled polyesters we can reduce co2 emissions by up to 79%, limiting the use of non renewable resources while removing the issue of waste and incineration.
We closely monitor environmental impacts to ensure we are adapting to constant changes in both climate and industry innovations.
We are working to understand our specific carbon footprint per garment so that we can constantly compare and assess products accurately.
We are working with the European Regional Development Fund, Impact Lab and the University of Plymouth to assess the life cycle of our garments and supply chain. This ensures that we receive highly accurate measures of the co2 footprint of our garments throughout their journey, while identifying specific areas which can be improved. We also work with Plymouth College of Art Fab Lab assessing the potential for using innovative programmes to develop new products in different ways. Sharing knowledge is key to ongoing progress and development.
Commitment to the Working Environment
We work with carefully audited factories to form long term partnerships. Working together daily we problem solve, develop and deliver in line with our shared vision to reach joint goals.
