Why Buy Garden?
Our slogan is Sprouting Change, and that is what we aim to do.
With a number of new activewear brands popping up over the past few years, we wanted to be different than the others and to pride ourselves on doing our bit to change things up.
First of all, our products are all made from recycled fabrics (70%+ recycled nylon or polyester). This means that instead of new plastics being manufactured to make Nylon or Polyester, which requires large amount of oil/petroleum & water, as well as excessive greenhouse gases, our range is made out of existing materials & plastics, like bottles, abandoned fishing nets & pre-consumer waste. So this means with every purchase you make from Garden, you're helping to make the world a cleaner place.
Secondly, our products are ethically manufactured through a specialist supplier in Bali, Indonesia. Their staff are paid well above minimum wage and receive 13 months salary per year (1 extra month pay). Staff are also given a free meal each day and receive free health insurance, which also covers their spouse & children. Furthermore, they donate a portion of each order to the Bali Mums charity in Indonesia, as well as donating supplies to local orphanages.
Finally, our pictures & photography on our website will look a bit different to other brands. We've decided to move away from the typical professional photoshoot and have instead put our brand images in the hands of our customers, to provide real shots and also encourage them to take photos that they think they look best in. We feel that this gives our brand & products are more authentic feel and we encourage them to have confidence in themselves when taking photos in our range. We are hoping to regularly update the pictures you see on our website with our customers photos in our range, so we encourage you to submit photos of yourself to us by tagging us in your IG posts or stories (@gardenactive) or DM our IG page as we would love to feature you on our website & IG, so we can keep this movement going of women showing their confidence off.
Love, the Garden Activewear team xoxo
