Fairtrade Clothing Brand Wombat Combats Carbon Emissions





Released on: October 19, 2010, 6:56 am
Author: WOMbat Clothing
Industry: Apparel & Fashion

Fairtrade clothing brand WOMbat has signed up to IT hosting company Rackspace, who in turn have planted trees on their behalf in a bid to neutralise carbon emissions.

The move is in line with WOMbat’s Ethical Policy, which sets high ethical and environmental standards both for itself and for its partners and manufacturers. With the aim of cutting carbon emissions from IT and business servers, Rackspace works with the International Tree Foundation (ITF) to plant trees across the UK every time a new client signs up to its IT hosting services.

Victoria Tingey from WOMbat said: “We are really pleased to be able to bring our IT systems in-line with our Ethical Policy and the other areas of our business; Rackspace’s partnership with the ITF has allowed us to neutralise our carbon emissions as far as possible by planting trees in the UK”.

WOMbat’s latest range of fair trade clothing counts television presenter and all round funny-man Justin Lee Collins amongst its customers, with the popular celebrity spotted wearing one of their cool men’s hoodies on his recent channel Five documentary ‘A Song for Justin’.

WOMbat stocks a wide range of organic and ethical men’s clothing and women’s clothing online and in its four UK stores; Chester, Bristol, Cambridge and Abersoch.
