Our Ethical Approach

We are recognised as an ethical brand by Good On You.

Good On You is a leading source for ethical brand ratings, assessing brands for their impact on the environment, labour and animals.

At Offbeat Sweetie, we believe that we should all do what we can to leave the world better than how we found it, and these values guide the decisions we make and the way we run our business. As a small family business, our resources and choices might be limited compared to bigger businesses, but we believe that all businesses, big and small, have a responsibility to run their business in the most ethical manner possible. 

Here is our ethical approach:

🌈 As part of our commitment to sustainability, we minimise textile waste by making our products on demand instead of following the traditional retail model of mass-producing products that may never get sold and would ultimately just end up in landfill. Our preferred suppliers use ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX© certified ink and STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX© certified material, and use packaging made from 100% recycled materials wherever possible.
🌈 We are an LGBTIQ+ friendly business. We promote equality by not adhering to gender stereotypes with our colours and designs. Our products are intended to be worn by anybody who likes them!
🌈 While many of our products are made in China, we challenge the "Made In China" stigma by working with experts who produce beautifully crafted products using ethical practices. We will never work with anyone who is known to use child labour, sweatshops or other exploitative practices that are in breach of the Labour Law of the People's Republic of China. Wherever possible, we use manufacturers who are compliant with SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which is an international audit covering Sedex's four pillars of Labour, Health and Safety, Environment and Business Ethics.
