Sundried know we need to use materials which wick sweat, stretch and work with our bodies, but we also want our fabrics to work towards a better impact on the environment. We do this by producing our fabrics with the mitigation of harmful substances, pollution and other environmental hazards. We are audited by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund to ensure we minimise the carbon footprint throughout the full lifecycle of our clothing through its design, manufacture, distribution, use and disposal.

Quality

Tough workouts require tougher activewear. Sundried’s fabric choices are designed to last, trialled and tested by leading triathletes to ensure our athletes are supported. Sundried use premium materials with the finest quality fibres to ensure the products we bring to you are of the highest standard.

Recycling

In 2017 Sundried will release new garments made from recycled coffee. Coffee grounds from local coffee shops are routinely treated as waste after brewing. By recycling these once wasted coffee grounds and adding them into our textile fibres, we’re reducing the vast amount of disposed coffee grounds going to nearby landfills. Production of these coffee grounds utilises less energy after it has already brewed making this resource sustainable and environmentally friendly.

This sustainable technology has been developed over four years of research, trial and error. By utilising coffee’s natural ability to block odours, this technology is essentially taking wisdom from life experiences. Partnering with local coffee shops and collecting their used coffee grounds has provided a very sustainable route to supply our raw material.

We continue to collect used coffee ground from landfills, giving it another life.

Credentials

All our material choices are made with the mitigation of harmful substances, pollution and other environmental hazards associated with raw material extraction, to protect the planet as best we can. Our production process is regulated by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund who help us to run our company as efficiently as possible.

To date, The Low Carbon Innovation Fund portfolio of companies has saved ¼ million tonnes of CO2 and if forecast to save a total of 13 million tonnes of carbon emissions by the end of 2020.

Confidence in Textiles

Traceability

Here at Sundried we like to make your products journey traceable, it’s part of our ethos. From the extraction of our raw materials monitored by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund, to images from our supply chain. The lifecycle of your activewear is traceable all the way until it hits your doorstep, then it’s up to you. We encourage you to continue to keep your activewear ethical by following our wash cool, sun dry, care information, which keeps our carbon footprint as low as possible.

Our customers can also trace the journey of their unique pledge to charity Water for Kids through our donate site, which reveals how your donation has been used to help provide a clean and safe water source for a child in need.

Low In Carbon

Sundried are regulated by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund, who have strict policies which we are required to adhere to on how our products come to market. We also encourage you to minimise your carbon footprint once you become a Sundried activewear owner. We do this by selecting the most ethical aftercare procedures, such as encouraging you to wash cool and sun dry our activewear and then (eventually) recycle old garments.

The Low Carbon Innovation fund follow a three stage procedure to ensure our company complies with its lower emission rules.

  1. An initial assessment into the runnings of the business
  2. A baseline carbon assessment, where our potential carbon savings were identified.
  3. Using both qualitative and quantitative data, a full carbon impact assessment report is gathered.
