Here at Indyglo we care about the environment we send our products out into.
We undertake certain methods that reduce the amount of waste we create during production of both our world renowned fluffy legwarmer collection and our stunning outfits. We hate waste, that’s why we actively try to use as much as we can from our raw materials, which not only keeps the cost of the finished items down for the consumer, but also reduces our carbon footprint as well.
We work with local recycling contractors who actively sort waste as much as possible (approx 80%) to be reused and recycled. Their motto is ‘Think Global – Act Local’ and we fully support this way of thinking.
Low impact packaging is used for both finished items and for shipping out to the customer. Our packaging bags can be recycled, and our info-card inserts can either be passed to friends as a way of recommending us or recycled in customers normal household recycling bins.
Our wholesale boxes are lightweight and void of branding so that our retailers can reuse the boxes in their own business environment as they wish, or actively recycled as normal.
Our shipping couriers are embracing their environmental impact by offering 100% carbon neutral shipping envelopes, as standard, along with eco-drives which involves retraining of their drivers on getting the best MPG from delivery vehicles, and the testing/purchasing of new 100% electric Nissan e-NV200 delivery vans and the new Boeing 777 aircraft which is as much as 18% more fuel efficient than its predecessor.

What You Can Do To Recycle:
Whilst we price ourselves on producing items that a raver can wear for a long, long time, sadly they won’t always last forever.
Locally run clothes banks are a good way to recycle clothing that can not be passed to charity shops, or sold on auction site. Find out more about what can/can’t be recycled at Recycle Now.
