Here at THIRD FORM, we are continuously working on ways to reduce our environmental impact and give back to those working at the forefront of change. We have been incorporating our values since our label's inception and have set long term goals that result in a more sustainable and ethical business.
Some of the things we hold dear to our THIRD FORM heart is using environmentally accredited fabrications such as Tencel, Viscose, Linen, Cotton and recycled polyesters. We also believe the loss of an animal's life or cruel factory breeding conditions for an item of clothing is unacceptable, which is why we choose not to use skins (leather), fur, hairs and silk.
With our selected materials, we strive to create ‘forever’ pieces that will last a lifetime and something that can be donated, recycled and upcycled. As a business that utilises customer data to help minimise unsold stock and wastage by producing only what is needed, there is a small amount end of season, wearable samples and usable inventory that are donated to aligned charities, where they too see a second life and create funds for those in need. We will continue to explore ways to help the THIRD FORM business become a manageable circular business as an end goal, within our scope.
All THIRD FORM our pieces are made with suppliers that we have been working with since the beginning. They are independently audited annually and are credited with global certifications for working conditions, manufacturing practices and waste management, We work with them closely in achieving this, as well as in looking for ways to improve practices all year round.
We are also working to significantly reduce our use of plastic in 2023. You would have noticed all of our orders are lovingly packaged in 100% recycled tissue and inside our branded canvas tote bags for you to reuse time and time again. All orders are posted in Biodegradable satchels, and we continue to work on sourcing the most sustainable technologies and partners to work with on improving this.
These are just some of the things we do day to day to do our bit for this beautiful place we call home.
