Sustainability with UGG Since 1974

Posted by UGG Since 1974 on

Sustainably and ethically made fashion has been a big talking point for the past few years, but it’s only in recent times that people have started getting serious about making the changes happen. 

We know it’s important to feel good about what you’re buying, so here’s what we’ve done to reduce risk to our beautiful environment.

MATERIALS

We make all of our products from a naturally occurring material (sheepskin), so there’s no artificial manufacturing of materials that go into your boots.

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED

We only acquire sheepskin from farms where it comes about as a by-product of another industry. In other words, we are able to put to good use, a material that would otherwise go to waste.

PACKAGING

Our packaging is recycled and/or biodegradable. For us, it’s still important to have protective bags in our packaging, because of the frequency with which our parcels can be impacted by the weather. However, because the bags we use to protect your UGGs are biodegradable, you can feel confident disposing of them with your other biodegradable plastics.

Some call it eco fashion, we call it common sense.

Our dust bags are 100% re-usable and are perfect for storing your UGGs in the summer time to keep them fresh and dust free. Having re-usable dust bags means reducing the waste of a cardboard box. All of our swing tags, thank you cards, wrapping, leg inserts & other packaging items are all made from re-cycled materials.

 MINIMUM WASTE

We make the most of our sheepskin - using off-cuts and leftover sheepskin to create accessories. This includes handbags, purses, clutches and wallets. 

________________________________________________ 

We will continue working to ensure all of our products and packaging cause no harm to our environment and in the meantime, we encourage you to think deeply about your next purchase. Be sure to consider where your products are made, who they’re made by, the work environments and the ethics & sustainable practices of the business.
