The Sockery is deeply concerned about the environment, our flora and our fauna in this beautiful, unique country we live in. We believe in minimising our impact wherever possible.
We do this by constantly improving the way we source our fantastic socks, keeping our footprint as small as possible, using sustainable packaging and continually trying to improve these practices to stay up to date with the ever-changing sustainable choices available.
We currently use compostable, fully biodegradable mailing satchels to ship your orders, partly made from plants, that break down in nature in 3 - 6 months. We reject single use plastics, where possible, and those that find their way to us through other parties we reuse or recycle (when possible). We encourage our suppliers to do the same.
One thing we really love at The Sockery is finding the next best sustainable sock to bring you too! We are passionate about recycled fibres and stock socks made from these fibres whenever we can get our hands on them. We also draw the line at stocking any sock, or use any product in the running of The Sockery, that promotes or condones inhumane or cruel practices.
And finally, we are strong believers of 'shop local'. We put an emphasis on supporting Australian Made socks, not only to support manufacturing and business in our great country, but also to keep the shipping footprint low.
