Jack Wills & Ethical Trading Policy

I have recently been gifted an extremely lovely hoodie from Jack Wills.  Jack Wills boasts being an English company, founded in 1999, with their maiden shop opening in Salcombe, Devon.  Over the last 18 years, they’ve grown into a globally recognised name that ships to over 120 countries Worldwide.

MrLovely needs his clothes to be hard-wearing and well made.

Those Three Words

One of the first things I do with new clothing (not that I often get new clothing these days) is read the label.  The label in my hoodie read “Made In China”.  This caused a huge ethical and moral dilemma for me.  I’ve been learning a lot lately about clothing brands that outsource their manufacturing to developing countries.  This can so often mean dangerous working conditions, unfair wages and literally people dying for your clothes.

Jack Wills – Ethical Trading Policy

Jack Wills is a member of the ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) which are working to enforce corporations to implement the ETI base code in their supply chain.  This is the base code:

They also have a detailed animal welfare code in place.

Jack Will has a brilliant summer sale on right now, with up to 60% off.  Go and have a browse on their site.

I do think there’s a lot more to learn about the ETI, but that’s a post for another day.

Whilst you’re here, why not read about some more of my favourite things.

  • It’s exceptionally difficult this day & age when people feel clothing is so cheap that they can just buy it, dump it & not worry where it came from or where its going.

    I can honestly say I don’t check labels but I haven’t bought myself any new clothing in AGES.
    I haven’t checked B’s either & he’s always getting new clothing. I’ve never been overly aware of ethical trading, up until now its not something thats crossed my mind.
    I do however wear clothes & look after them until the time that they are then passed to the charity shop, I never throw away clothing.

    I have had a few pieces from Jack Wills & find them long lasting! x

  • I like companies that contribute to the community by being eco friendly and protect their employees. I like the ethical trading policy that they have adopted as well.
