What is Gymshark's commitment to sustainability?Updated 3 months ago
SUSTAINABILITY IS NOT A CULTURAL TREND, A POLITICAL SENTIMENT OR ANOTHER BOX TO TICK. IT IS A DUTY.
We know we're not as good as we can or want to be. But we will be better. We will do better. Because our planet doesn't have time for empty words, and neither do we.
Sustainability can be complicated, and it can mean a lot of different things to different people. For Gymshark, it means 3 things;
OUR PLANET, OUR PEOPLE, WEAR MORE WASTE LESS.
So, what are we doing...
