Environment and Community
At Dirty Fingers we do our best to make sure we contribute to the ongoing welfare of both our environment and our local community.
All of our clothing is responsibly made, and our organic range is made in Tanzania using 100% rain-fed, chemical-free organic cotton. The farmers who grow it are a paid a premium price, and money is contributed towards projects such as building wells for clean drinking water.
In recent years we've worked hard to reduce the amount of plastic packaging that keeps your Dirty Fingers clothing safe and dry during posting. We hope to reduce our plastic packaging even further, and explore alternatives which are more easily recyclable.
Cardboard and Paper Recycling
We currently recycle our waste paper and cardboard, the latter of which is collected by a local Scout troop. Money from the recycling goes to benefit troop projects – just one of the ways we seek to work with our local community.
Supporting the Community
In 2011, we produced a 'Wills and Kate' Limited Edition range celebrating the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The £1,950 profit from the sale of these garments was donated to Demelza, a local children’s hospice. In 2012, we raised £3,660 with our range of Diamond Jubilee garments.
