Tortue UK is committed to reducing our environmental impact
Our 6 responsible commitments are as follows:
Pursue trusting relationships with our suppliers
Our clothes are designed to be wearable for as long as possible. Our Style Team work hard to create timeless designs that last throughout the seasons and for many years giving you value for money too!
We love to see our customers still wearing pieces from previous collections which will always blend into the new collections that we launch. Our aim is that you can build a capsule collection of clothing over time that is tailored to your own style and always up to date.
We carry out quality testing to ensure your garments will stand the test of time. These tests are carried out by our Head Office team as well as by independent Expert testing too!
Prioritise the use of eco-designed materials
Today, more than 1 in 3 items in our collections feature in our Planet Tortue range which is made from eco responsible materials. Where possible we use materials such as organic cotton, linen, lyocell, eco-responsible viscose and recycled polyester. Our manufacturing processes use materials which have the lowest impact on the environment. You will not find fur, angora or uncertified mohair in our collections and we guarantee that our products are free of controversial chemicals such as alkylphenols, phthalates and fluorocarbons (PFCs)
We have always fought against over production of stock and we never send any surplus materials or garments to Landfill.
We make our clothes in limited quantities, with some items being specially made to order as limited edition pieces in order to eliminate waste.
Use every piece of fabric
We are followers of circularity and anti waste. Rather than throwing away or destroying any surplus fabrics, we use them to create a capsule collection each season to give a second life to these so called “forgotten fabrics” which feature in our highly desired re-use collections loved by our customers.
Reduce our packaging
We aim to use as little packaging as possible in order to minimise wastage whilst ensuring your items arrive in tip top condition.
Our polybags are made of recycled and recyclable materials.
