Eco and Ethics

Eco and Ethics

 As advocates of all things ethical, we’re committed to supplying clothing that benefits the environment, as well as the people who live in it.

Whether it’s making sure our clothing is made by workers who are paid fair wages, or ensuring our bamboo is grown organically with no fertilizers or pesticides, we’re passionate about producing high-quality products that have a positive impact on the planet and its people.

And because our customers deserve nothing less than full transparency when it comes to our manufacturing process, we’ve provided a comprehensive list of our accredited certifications, as well as what they mean below.

ECOCERT

Established in 1991 by French agricultural engineers who sought to develop eco-friendly agricultural practices, Ecocert has become a global leader in organic certification. This inspection and certification body is accredited under the International Standard ISO Guide 65 (EN 45011) and is responsible for guaranteeing a level of traceability and transparency that matches consumer expectations and standards. Companies who are strictly supervised, visited onsite by Ecocert regularly, and who meet environmental standards, are awarded certification. And Boody are proud to have certification from Ecocert to confirm that the raw bamboo we use is grown organically.

ISO 14001 & ISO 9001 

 

ISO is an international non-governmental organisation that develops international standards relating to numerous certification processes. Through its membership of 163 national standards bodies, ISO establishes consensus-based, market relevant, international standards that encourage innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.

ISO 14001 provides organisations with directives for an environmental management system that promotes sustainability and decreases any practices which harm the environment.

ISO 14001 Aims To:

  • Enhance environmental performance
  • Fulfilment of compliance obligations
  • Achieve environmental objectives
