Roam & Ride Ethical Product Banner

 

We all love to explore the great outdoors. It could be shredding down your local trail centre bike route, taking on your peak challenge or tackling that black run. No matter what your adventure Roam & Ride clothing and apparel that looks as good on the track as it does in the Pub for a well earned drink.

We all have a responsibility as patrons of our local environment to ensure we do what we can to make decisions that will allow all us and further generations to continue to experience what we love. This is why here at Roam & Ride we have taken steps to make our products and packaging both sustainable and ethical as well as supporting eco initiatives to off set our carbon footprint.

Packaging:

  • Where possible we use 100% recycled paper/card packaging materials and post bags which themselves can easily be recycled.
  • The use of some plastic is inevitable to make sure more delicate or items are delivered in excellent condition but we are always reviewing improvements in this area.

 
Eco & Ethical initiatives:

  • .Charitable contribution opportunities possible with every order. Find out about our charity partners here.
  • Offset of carbon due to support of projects aimed at reducing atmospheric CO2 levels around the world.

 While every effort is made to incorporate the above into every product, and this remains our goal, there are inevitably certain products in our range that due to the nature of the fabrics or materials used alternative packaging material may be utilised. A small section of the range also use "standard" materials that may not carry the tags above.

We show all the ethical and sustainable credentials against the ranges so you can be sure that the t-shirt, hoodie, or sweatshirt you are shopping for meet your eco aspirations.
