Sustainability


 

Following passions not trends, our core aim is providing quality, timeless clothing that does not sacrifice environmental and social integrity. A love of nature and our environment calls for a responsibility to protect it, and every small contribution can have a huge influence. 

 

Plastic Free Packaging

We are committed to tackling the crisis of single-use plastic consumption. Once used plastic packaging is either burned contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, or for the most part, is disposed of into our oceans, never disappearing but breaking down into smaller pieces that marine life ingests. Our packaging and little touches are sourced from 100% natural materials and where possible are themselves made from recycled materials, from our recycled kraft hanging tags, paper packaging bags to beeswax.                                                                                                                     
                                                              

Wildlife Conservation

Following their own adventures, the team at Ivy & Rigg are on a journey to bring you clothing that look good and do good. For every piece of clothing sold, we donate £1 to a worthy wildlife conservation cause. Please visit our Wildlife Conservation page for more information.

 

 

 The Ivy & Rigg Forest

We want to help you become a part of the community making a change and preserving our forests to give back to nature and counteract climate change. For every order that is placed, we plant one tree in our forest located in North West Madagascar through our partnership with Tree Nation. Visit Ivy & Rigg Forest for more details about the severe deforestation in our planting area.
