Sustainability FAQs

+

What does sustainability mean to Seasalt?

At Seasalt we understand that to be successful we need to grow sustainably. We are committed to doing business responsibly by caring for our people, supporting the communities around us and minimising our environmental impact. We have a dedicated sustainability team working on our social and environmental responsibilities, and a network of Guardians across our teams to support Seasalt’s sustainability commitments. We are currently working towards becoming B Corp certified, which is a business that meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

+

Where are Seasalt products made?

We design all our collections in Cornwall, and our primary manufacturers are in India, Turkey, China, Vietnam and Bulgaria. We support UK manufacturers where possible and sell Leach pottery, Trevarno Skincare and St Eval home fragrances. If you’re curious about your garment’s country of origin, look on its label or at its details online.

+

What fabrics do you use?

We are committed to using natural fibres wherever possible. Over 60% of our fabrics are made of 100% natural fibres, including organic cotton, cotton, bamboo, linen and wool. We are proud to have been the first clothing company to achieve Soil Association organic cotton GOTS certification in 2005. We created our trademarked waterproof organic cotton fabric Tin Cloth®, and we continue to innovate and work towards more sustainable fabric options. If you would like to read more about how we are doing this, you can find more information in our latest Sustainability Report.

+

Do you use any chemicals when making your products?

We do and all of the dyes and chemicals we use in production conform to the EU regulations for the restricted use of chemicals REACH, and we spot check suppliers every season. We have a detailed Production Standards Manual that clearly sets out what chemicals can and can’t be used in the production of our clothing.

+

What are you doing to reduce single-use plastic in packaging?

We are working to eliminate the use of all unnecessary consumable materials at Seasalt, including single-use plastic in our packaging. We have already removed 18 tonnes of single-use plastic from our business each year by replacing mailbags, packing tape and bubble wrap with environmentally friendly and recyclable alternatives. We’ve also removed the individual plastic garment bags from our all online orders, which we collect and recycle through our partners.
