HOW TO SHOP ETHICAL AT YOGACLICKS
Yoga is not just about the physical practice. Respect for nature, animals and other people are all important to us as yogis (and frankly as human beings!). We’d find it hard to live with ourselves if we sold anything that harmed our environment, exploited other people or made animals suffer.
That's why we take great care over what we sell, only working with makers who put the wellbeing of people, animals and the planet first.
So, we’re very excited that YogaClicks is the first multi-brand yoga shop in Europe to pass the really tough ethical audit carried out by The Ethical Company Organisation, and to have successfully attained official Ethical Accreditation.
This success means that we’re listed in The Good Shopping Guide, the ethical shopping bible, along with great ethical brands like Lily’s Kitchen and Neal’s Yard. We’re very proud to be in the company of such iconic brands, which are setting the highest ethical and sustainable standards for the UK and beyond.
In a world of green washing we want to continue to hold ourselves accountable to the highest ethical standards. So, we’ve developed our own set of nine ethical guidelines to guide our decision-making on whether we work with a particular maker or sell a particular product.
Growing. Making. Packing. Transporting.
Dignified working conditions. Freedom of expression. No child labour.
Honouring the artisan. Handmade.
Inclusivity and equality for all.
REPAIRING AND RECYCLING
Creating for longevity, not landfill.
No animal suffering, ever.
Lifting people and communities out of poverty.
No hiding. Supply chain accountability.
Charitable donations. Working for a cause.
NINE PRINCIPLES: NINE ICONS
Look for the nine icons on each product page as an instant guide to each maker. It’s not a perfect world, and what we want to do is not always possible, but if you see the icon displayed, you’ll know that the maker is committed to a sustainable business according to this principle.
