Environment

Blessed to have the Cornish coastline as our constant backdrop and inspiration, we are ever mindful of our physical and emotional connection to the world around us.

We’ve always tried our best as a business to reduce our impact on the environment, but now we’re more determined than ever and have set our course with ambitious targets.

Packaging that’s better for the planet

We remove over 18 tonnes of single-use plastic from the business every year, through major projects such as swapping the plastic in our now fully recyclable packaging for more environmentally friendly alternatives. 

The paper carrier bags we use in our shops are FSC certified as well as being fully recyclable, and we offer reusable Jute Shoppers too.

The road to Carbon Net Zero

Along with setting clear, science-based targets to help reduce our carbon emissions, we also became one of the first fashion brands to sign up to the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Climate Action Roadmap in November 2020.

Through this collaboration we’ll be supporting the retail industry in working towards carbon net zero by 2040.

Aiming for our targets

As Seasalt has grown as a business, so too has our dedication to behaving responsibly. But with the climate crisis becoming more critical with each year, we know our choices matter now more than ever.

That's why we're setting clear science-based targets to help reduce our carbon emissions to net zero within 20 years, meaning our operations cause no harm to the environment.
