Sustainability is very important to Sassy World! I have broken down different areas below but if you have any further questions please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or drop us a DM on instagram @sassyworlduk!
Being a predominantly vintage brand, I believe that shopping second hand is one of the best ways to shop whilst trying to look after the planet. There are so many fabulous clothes already out there! And my absolute favourite part of my job is sourcing the sassiest 80s and 90s clothes. All vintage items are handpicked by either me, Helena, or my mum Anne. I ensure that all items are of high vintage quality and if there are any signs of preloved-ness, I mention it in the product description.
Independent designer collaborations
For the last few years I've teamed up with some incredible designers who happen to run some of my favourite independent brands. The most frequent collaboration being the Jade Clark x Sassy World swimwear. For this collaboration, the majority of the items are handmade to order and made by Jade in the UK. We drop one collection every summer!
With all of the independent designer collaborations, all of the items are made in the UK as well as made to order which avoids waste. This of course means you have to wait a couple of weeks for your item to arrive but slow fashion is the way to go if we wanna help the planet!
Sassy World uses recyclable cardboard boxes for our packaging yay! The tape that is used is also fully recyclable and I handwrite addresses straight onto the box to avoid any extra paper and printing.
