OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY

I Dress Myself is a responsible business

We recognise that our actions have an impact on the environment and are committed to reducing this as much and as quickly as we can.  Every member of the team is tasked with looking for ways to help us to conserve the planet and this ethos informs every business decision that we make. 

We go the extra mile so that you can feel confident that your order is well placed.

ORGANIC COTTON GARMENTS

Pesticides on cotton crops are thought to cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people every year and many more die due to chronic toxicity.  We only offer organic cotton and recycled garments for decoration.
 
We custom print and embroider organic cotton and recycled garments from Stanley/Stella, Continental Clothing, Neutral and B&C amongst others.
 

ECO FRIENDLY WATER BASED INKS

We were the first screen printers in the UK to exclusively use 100% solvent-free water-based inks for our garment printing, back in 2006.  In 2019, we introduced a Direct-to-Garment printing service using eco-friendly GOTS organic inks. 
 
No plastisol inks, no discharge printing, no compromise.
 
PLASTIC FREE EMBROIDERY

PLASTIC FREE EMBROIDERY

We were the first embroidery company in the UK to develop a truly plastic-free embroidery service.  We use rayon top thread, wind our own rayon bobbin thread and use backing made from wood pulp for a fully biodegradable embroidery.
 
we are a vegan company

VEGAN BUSINESS

We are a vegan business.  Every product we create and everything we use in the business has been checked to ensure that no animal-based ingredients were used.  We only supply plant-based drinks and our monthly free staff lunches are vegan too.
 
Have confidence that your garments are cruelty free.
 
PLASTIC FREE EMBROIDERY

PLASTIC FREE Packaging

We re-use packaging whereever we can, using our recycled and recyclable custom brown paper tape to keep it sealead.  We never buy plastic packaging but do re-use that which we are given.  We source and custom print grass paper mailing bags so that our customers can go plastic-free too.

We partner with a local crafting group to ensure that any misprinted garments are put to good use.  All prints are covered and the garments are repurposed for refugees, homeless people and made into blankets for premature babies, rucksacks of goodies for children who have left home for welfare issues and sanitary ware for women in emerging countries.
 
B Corp application

TOWARDS B CORP VERIFICATION

We are excited to have put in our application to become a B Corp and are currently waiting for verification.  B Corps are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. The certification process is rigorous, and considers the impacts of a company’s decisions on society and the environment. 
 

cLIMATE POSITIVE workforce

We offset the personal carbon dioxide emissions of all of our staff through Ecologi by supporting verified carbon offset projects around the world.  76.85 tonnes of carbon have been offset in the last few months alone. 
 

OUR SUSTAINABILITY GOALS FOR 2022

1. To achieve carbon negativity.

2. To achieve GOTS certification.

3. To achieve B Corp status, proving the highest standards of social and environmental performance and that business can balance profit with people and planet.
