Do they produce any eco-friendly products or have a sustainability focus?
Season after season, range after range, the team at The Critical Slide Society have been conscious for years that each little change they dabble in does in fact, make a difference when it comes to the big picture of a brighter future.
From shifting their printed t-shirt range to be 100% made from recycled cotton (some even from the scraps on the factory floor to prevent waste), to customers receiving their goods in biodegradable cornstarch packaging, TCSS are focusing on both the now, and the near future of their brand.
