Is Bam Ethical?

Yes. They achieved their 2020 goal of becoming a ‘climate positive’ business and they are committed to becoming Carbon Net Zero by 2030. They are aiming for zero waste to landfill; zero pollution; and zero wasted water, all by 2030. They ensure that every person in the supply chain (all the way back to the growers) is fairly paid and treated with dignity. Their packaging is 100% recyclable, compostable or reusable, and they continue to increase their recyclable clothing range.

Bam are transparent with their supply chain, even providing a link for anyone to view their Impact Positive: 2021 Annual Report. This also details their involvement with the Water Boreholes Kenya Project, where they offset their carbon footprint by repairing boreholes and providing clean water, thus reducing deforestation.

They also partner with Sharewear, a charity that distributes second hand clothes to those who need them, and are members of the Fair Wear Foundation.
