Sundried Ethical Values

Low Carbon Production

Sundried has been audited by the Low Carbon Innovation Fund and we have strict policies and guidelines to ensure everything we do has the very smallest carbon footprint. We minimise the carbon footprint throughout the full lifecycle of our clothing through its design manufacture, distribution, use and disposal.

The original range has been produced in Portugal and all further production promises to be based in the UK and Europe to minimise our footprint.

When we call ourselves responsible we don’t just say it. While we develop our apparel we want our positive message and respect to the environment and healthy lifestyle to rub off on our consumers and the people that know.

Wellbeing

Sundried respects its staff from the supply chain to the office. Typically, more waking hours are spent at work than home, so Sundried created the concept of Every Hour On the Hour (EHOH). An initiative where we spend 10 minutes of every hour exercising throughout the working day, exchanging an hour’s break at lunchtime for 30 minutes lunch and 30 minutes exercising, to minimise the negative effects of sitting and staring at a screen for long durations.

Transparency

All of your purchases through Sundried are fully trackable, so you can see how the product started its life all the way to how it ended up with you. This means you can be sure that the product is ethical right from its conception. Read more about our ethical production here.

Charity

Sundried do things differently by giving a unique code to charity Water for Kids with every purchase. This unique code leads our buyer to their pledge page where the journey of their donation is revealed, from bricks to build dams to rainwater harvesting for schools. Water for Kids protect the good health of children and communities in the developing world by assisting in the provision of safe drinking water. Sundried customers are encouraged to spread the word by sharing their pledge profile on social media and encouraging other to donate. Read more on our charity partner Water for Kids.

Sundried also work with Surfers Against Sewage, an environmental charity who strive to protect our oceans, beaches, and waves from plastic waste and other sewage so that we can have less polluted waters and enjoy our coastline sustainably.
