Responsible tree planting

We believe in a sustainable future, which is why we're committed to taking steps to reduce our environmental impact.

So for every order placed at, we plant a tree with Ecologi. You can check our growing forest here!

Ecologi is an environmental organisation that facilitates the funding of carbon offset projects and responsible tree planting around the world, helping individuals and businesses take personal responsibility and make a difference in the fight against climate change. Their mission is to reduce 50% of global CO2 emissions by 2040.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

When we created TORE we pledged to take a holistic approach in terms of sustainability.

Following the zero-waste hierarchy, we want to reduce the use of raw materials and continuously reuse and recycle items for the production of all different kinds of new products.

Once a sock reaches the end of its life, we ask you to take the sensible approach and first reuse it for a different purpose and then recycle it at your local recycling centre.

Your sock may end up as wall insulation or padding for car seats instead of going to a landfill.

Ideas to repurpose old socks

Reduce waste by giving a new purpose to an old sock. You could use it as:

- A sock puppet to keep the little ones entertained

- A dust cloth for a good spring clean

- Teddy bear stuffing for the arts and craft enthusiasts

- A dog toy for your furry best friend

How to recycle old socks

We recommend you carefully dispose of your socks:

- At your local recycling point or a clothing and textile bank. Find your nearest one here

- By donating them to a registered charity

- By conveniently donating them to a charity collection service that collects clothing direcly from your door, such as the British Heart Foundation or Clothes Aid
