Returns & sustainability

It probably won’t come as a surprise to you that ordering a lot of items and returning most of them is not very sustainable. Of course, we understand that sometimes a return is inevitable, but let’s work together to minimise the number of returns (and therefore CO2 emissions) as much as possible! 🙂

Not sure about the size or fit of an item you want to order? Please get in contact with our store instead of just ordering two sizes or a similar blue T-shirt from four different brands. Our store team is not like your average sales advisor and every single one of us is full of product knowledge to ensure you always find the perfect item! So just give us a call or send us an e-mail and we are happy to tell you everything you need to know about the size, style and fit of any product! This way you will end up with the perfect item for you and it prevents unnecessary CO2 emissions. A win-win situation, right?
