Everything we do at Boy Wonder has ethics and sustainability at it’s core from the design stage through to the shipping agents we use. We take our impact on people and planet very seriously and so use our company policies to state what we do to be as ethical and sustainable as possible in all the different areas of our business. We hope that these and our actions as a business show you, the customer, how serious we are. Please let us know if you have any questions about these policies via email.
Materials & Processes
We use sustainable materials in all our products and packaging and also in our studio. Our garments are made from British-made certified organic cotton yarn. Our packaging, swing tags and all other paper-based products are plastic free and made with recycled and biodegradable stock. Read more about this in our Environmental Policy.
The impact of crop farming organic cotton is 31.4% of what it is for conventional cotton – Kering EP&L
The impact of organic cotton spun & dyed in Britain is 25% of what it is for conventional
cotton that is spun and dyed in India – Kering EP&L
Our garments are designed to circular design principles. This includes added growth room, contrast cuffs for reduced washing and the use of non-mixed fibres for ease of recycling. We also provide garment care guides with each order and sell repair kits alongside our products to encourage our customers to keep the garments in use for longer. We aim to add a take-back and resale section on the site in the near future. You can see the certifications for our materials and processes below.
We only use natural mono-fibres which break down at the end of their life cycle.
Small batch production means we don’t have to hold a lot of stock which reduces waste.
All our garments are printed and made ethically just over 20 miles from our studio by family run small businesses. We are fully transparent about our suppliers and you can find our factory list and trading policy below.
Using local production means our fashion miles are over 36% less than big brands.
We want to keep working on developing our sustainability and circularity through the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We are aiming at becoming a B Corp and carbon neutral certified business. You can read more about our plans below and find out more about our makers.
