Ethics, Pricing and Charity Work?

Is Team Timbuktu Ethical?

Yes. This is a young company ensuring all aspects of their supply chain are adhering to fair practices. Team Timbuktu only employs makers who the team have personally met, and they visit them every year to ensure their workplace standards (BSCI/WRAP/SA8000) are consistently being met. They are very transparent about their supply chain, and state that because of the diversified product lines, they are not able to trace all of their raw material and trims suppliers.

Team Timbuktu have a ‘one tree planted for every order’ policy to help offset the impact, and advertise their sustainability report on their website.

They admit to using almost 100% plastic-free packaging, using compostable and recycled materials. They have also partnered with Upparel (Melbourne based company) to help with end-of-life garment recycling.

Is Team Timbuktu Expensive?

From 39 AUD for an organic cotton bucket hat, to 249 AUD for their recycled puffer jacket.

Is Team Timbuktu Involved with Charities?

Nothing is currently stated on their website, however when Team Timbuktu launched, they pledged to donate 20% their anticipated profits. Unfortunately though, this was not financially sustainable for them.
