A more comfortable future

We don’t live in the past, so why would we sleep in it? Our CleanBamboo is as soft as silk, breathable as linen, sustainable as hemp and way kinder on the planet than cotton.

Our guiding direction

At the heart of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development lie 17 Sustainable Development Goals that provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. We use these to guide our decisions.

Comfort shouldn’t come at a cost to people or the planet. In 2021, we gained clarity on our environmental impact, took strides towards being plastic-free, and enforced high ethical and legal standards with our factories.

Transparency
               
is good

All our cut and sew factories are audited by SMETA and BSCI for ethical standards. We introduced a Code of Conduct agreement with all new factories and suppliers and can proudly say that 100% of them uphold our ethical and legal standards

Not all bamboo
                 
is equal

Bamboo is an incredible plant. However, transforming it into fabric is where things can become complicated. Bamboo viscose, rayon and modal go through a chemically intensive process that harms the environment, workers and local communities. Our CleanBamboo is the only bamboo fabric that uses a non-toxic solvent and recycles 98% of the solution up to 200 times to turn raw bamboo into the silky-soft sheets you know and love.

Striving to be
          
plastic-free

We want to make plastic a thing of the past. We have signed on to be part of the Responsible Packaging Movement and are working to introduce 100% plastic free packaging this year.

A world without waste

In the US, 21 billion pounds of textiles get thrown away annually. More than half a billion kilograms of unwanted textiles end up in Australian landfills every single year—95% of this could be recycled. We’re committed to sending zero waste to landfill through our take-back and recommerce programs
ettitude

Together, we’re closing the loop

Take back program

In August 2020, we launched Loop, our textile recycling program in Australia. Since then, you’ve helped us divert 1146kg textile waste from landfill and prevent 4011kg of greenhouse gases.

Donation partners

Our commitment to a circular economy means we give returned or faulty items a second chance. This year, we donated to local homeless and animal shelters.

Recommerce

In the next step of our zero-waste model, we'll be looking for ways to give products a second life by restoring and renewing returned or faulty items

A diverse world    is a better world

Our second annual voluntary demographic survey revealed that our team is from over 10 different backgrounds. We hired our first Head of People & Culture, and formed a new internal DEI committee with nine volunteer members from all departments and levels to steer DEI initiatives.

Hiring with purpose

In pursuit of our mission to create a more comfortable world for all, we’re taking action, not just talking about it. Our business directly reflects our values by putting diversity, equity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do.
