Who we are

A journey, not a destination

Sustainability is a journey, not a destination. We recognise the actions that must be made, and the perceptions that must be changed, for a better, healthier planet. Our platform provides a space where small and easy consumer changes can be made all in one place.
We hand-pick designers all around the world, pioneering the way in sustainable fabrics and processes, slowing down fast fashion, while staying stylish, affordable and long lasting.

Here at Chief and Turtle, we give you ability to shop by what values you believe in, by doing this, allowing you to make the small sustainable choices and checkout feeling confident you've made a planet-friendly purchase.


Asquith believe that at the heart of sustainability is getting the most wear from fewer, better quality pieces. They design their collections so they are functional, versatile and timeless. This is why it has always been important to Asquith that their clothes work effortlessly with the rest of your everyday wardrobe.


Tentree create aspirational outside products. For those who identify with the outdoors, but are not defined by them. Tentree is rooted in the belief that they have a responsibility to protect and preserve the world we live in. Buy one, and they'll plant ten. Let's branch out to nature, ten trees at a time.

Organic Basics

Organic Basics put sustainable thinking at the centre of everything they do. They only choose fabrics that care for our environment and only ever partner with factories that care about their impact, too. "When we say sustainability is our core mission we don’t mean that sustainability is nice to have - we mean that it’s the only way we act."

How to help

Get involved!

Sustainability is at the heart of Chief and Turtle. We want to make a change and here are a few reasons why:

- PWC estimates that 40% of online clothing purchases are returned and 10% of these end up in landfill. Every second the equivalent of a rubbish truck full of clothes ends up in landfill

- 60% of all clothing is made from virgin plastic

- One farmer commits suicide in India every 30 minutes. Around 25,000 have died in last 16 years due to cotton farming

- Greenpeace estimates there are 51 trillion pieces of tiny plastics in existence. That’s more than the total amount of stars in our galaxy.

We realise that asking people to stop purchasing altogether is unrealistic, but we hope that our brand will encourage you to make more thoughtful purchases, like the items hand selected by our team.

Our filters allow you to find the brands which align most closely with your core values, so you can look and feel great in complete confidence, knowing that you're actively supporting positive change in the world.

Some brands focus on reducing their chemical and carbon footprint by choosing sustainably-farmed organic cotton or other eco-friendly materials.

Some brands use natural cruelty-free vegan materials. Others prioritise full transparency around their production process and supply chain to ensure that all impacted communities enjoy safe working conditions and a fair living wage. Some plant trees while others fight forced labour. Some focus on natural materials while others reduce waste.

Simply filter by the values that matter to you the most. From vegan-friendly to UK-made, from recycled to fair trade, shop our extensive range to find ethical clothes that suit you inside and out.
