Ethics and Eco Credentials

WJ Clothing was founded by people with a passion for ethical and environmental responsibility - it's one of the reasons why we sought out amazing fibres like bamboo. 

The clothing industry worldwide is far from an ethical place.  It's a minefield of ecological, human and financial wrongdoing - but there are ways to battle that and make a difference.  For example, it's not possible to get organic certification for the way the source bamboo is grown in China - but we know it's the fastest-growing crop out there and needs no pesticides or fertilisers.  We also ensure that the process to produce the bamboo viscose used in our products is a closed system (so you can ignore the scare stories paid for by the cotton industry in the noughties!)

While it is not possible to get every accreditation against every element of every product, you can rest assured that we have made every effort to ensure that what you buy from us has as clean an ethical and ecological bill of health as you are going to find.  

Below are some of the accreditation schemes we use for our our products, production and logistics:
