Our Sustainability Practice

Goodies is a sustainable homeware and fashion brand based in Longford, Ireland. We believe having nice things should be guilt-free. Each product is made just for you when you order it. We want to make a positive impact on the earth, but we also want to look and feel cute doing it.

Everything you buy is created when you order it. Did you know 85% of all textiles produced in the fashion industry are sent to landfills? This makes it one of the worst contributors to our environmental crisis.

Here at Goodies, we take the environment very seriously. We work with on-demand suppliers, these guys help us to be consistent with our sustainability practice. They print, cut, sew, transfer and embroider every product only when an order is placed. No excess waste, no overproduction, just your item made just for you.  Did you know they have saved 70,760 kg from going to landfill, their inks are vegan approved and their water usage is almost zero. Yes, shipping can be slower but it’s worth it to be responsible for the environment.

Here at our office in Longford, we design everything on refurbished computers; in an office, my husband and I built ourselves using locally sourced materials. Our travel to work is a walk out the back garden – talk about low carbon footprint. We are in the process of install solar and a turbine that will reduce our footprint even more. As we work from home our business choices are our home choices. We try and make a conscious effort to be less wasteful. We definitely are not perfect, but every effort made is a gain to the environment.
