OUR IMPACT

 

NUDE LUCY AS A BRAND BELIEVES IN PRIORITISING THE HEALTH OF OUR PLANET. WE HAVE BEGUN A JOURNEY TO SUSTAINABILITY AND ENDEAVOUR TOWARDS CONSCIOUS CREATION AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRACTICES ACROSS OUR BUSINESS.

WE ARE ON A PATH FORWARD, AND WHILST WE KNOW THERE IS ALWAYS MORE WORK TO BE DONE, WE OUR PROUD TO SHARE THE WAYS IN WHICH WE HAVE MOVED INTO SUSTAINABLY DRIVEN PRACTICES SO FAR:

 

 

 

ORGANIC COTTON 

NUDE LUCY ORGANIC COTTON JERSEY USES COTTON YARNS THAT ARE GOTS CERTIFIED. (Global Organic Textile Standard)

ORGANIC COTTON FIBRES ARE GROWN FROM NON-GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEEDS, WITHOUT SYNTHETIC PESTICIDES, INSECTICIDES, OR HERBICIDES. THE ORGANIC FARMING PRACTICE ENABLES ECOSYSTEMS AND SOILS TO BE SUSTAINED, AND IS GROWN ALONGSIDE FOOD WHICH FEEDS THE FARMERS. THESE METHODS USE LESS ENERGY AND WATER, PRODUCING LESS GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS THAN CONVENTIONAL COTTON FARMING.

 
BETTER COTTON 

OUR MUCH-LOVED STRETCH WAFFLE COTTON JERSEY HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO BE CRAFTED FROM COTTON HARVESTED BY FARMERS USING BETTER PRACTICES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND THEIR FARMING COMMUNITIES. THE FARMERS MINIMISE WATER USAGE, PROMOTE HEALTHY SOIL, CONSERVE AND ENCOURAGE BIODIVERSITY ON THEIR LAND WHILST PROMOTING FAIR WORK LABOUR STANDARDS.

 

OUR LABELLING

WE ARE IN THE STAGES OF CONVERTING OUR GARMENT LABELLING TO USE RECYCLED MATERIALS WHERE POSSIBLE. OUR GARMENT TAGS ARE MADE FROM 100% RECYCLED PAPER WITH CERTIFICATION BY FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL (FSC) CHAIN OF CUSTODY CERTIFICATION. WE ARE IN PROCESS OF CHANGING OUR WOVEN NUDE LUCY BACK LABELS TO USE  RECYCLED POST-CONSUMER POLYESTER.

 

OUR PACKAGING

FROM SUMMER 21, OUR GARMENTS ARE PACKAGED IN HOME COMPOSTABLE BIODEGRADABLE BAGS. THESE BAGS ARE MADE FROM CORN STARCH WITH A MAN-MADE BINDING AGENT ADDED FOR FLEXIBILITY, WHICH IS NON-TOXIC, FREE FROM GMOS (GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS), BPAS (BISPHENOL A), AND PHTHALATES.

THE BAGS ARE CERTIFIED BY HOME COMPOSTABLE. THEY CAN BE COMPOSTED AT HOME, WITH YOUR FOOD SCRAPS AND GARDEN WASTE, OR IN GREEN BINS. WHEN THE BAGS BREAK DOWN, THEY DON’T LEACH ANYTHING, THEY JUST LOSE STRENGTH, BECOME FRAGILE AND DEGRADE TO ZERO WASTE.
