dk active has always been for the people and for the planet.

Our Commitment

Responsible Business Practices

We understand that everything we do has an impact on our environment, our planet, and our incredible team. That's why our commitment is to initiate responsible business practices in everything we do, ensuring we leave a lighter footprint on our planet. We take this commitment seriously, and it drives everything we do.

Efficiency, Sustainability, and Empowerment

At dk active, we acknowledge that manufacturing in Australia and competing with fast fashion brands is a challenge. However, it's a challenge that we have welcomed in the name of creating a better, more sustainable product. This has driven us to become as efficient as possible in everything we do. In turn, this not only helps us stay competitive but also reduces our impact on the environment, improves our products, and empowers our workforce.

Working with a cradle-to-grave philosophy guarantees our sustainable design right from the outset.

The Design Process

Sustainable Design Process

Our commitment to sustainability runs through the core of our design process, from fabric selection to the final product.

Quality Fabrics for Sustainable Style

We prioritise high-quality fabrics that are durable, versatile, and perform well for the purpose they were created for. By matching designs with sustainable fabrics, we create clothing that is both stylish and eco-friendly.

Ethical and Zero-Waste Production

Imagining a room full of discarded samples, fabric cut offs or ditched design? Not under this roof.

We aim to reduce waste at every stage of production, starting with our sample and cut-off fabrics. By repurposing these materials and giving them a new life, we are able to minimize our environmental impact. We also ensure that all of our products are made ethically and with care, from our Brisbane-based factory to your wardrobe.

Local and Sustainable Production

Ethical Manufacturing

We believe in ethical manufacturing practices, and are proud to produce our activewear locally in Brisbane, Australia. By manufacturing in-house, we are able to ensure fair wages, safe working conditions, and sustainable practices throughout our supply chain.

Low-Impact Operations

Our vertically integrated operations allow us to minimise our environmental impact. From digitisation and laser fabric cutting to solar-powered premises, we strive to keep our carbon emissions low and our waste to a minimum.

Transparency and Accountability

We are committed to transparency and accountability in everything we do. From our sourcing and manufacturing processes to our product design and packaging, we strive to be open and honest about our sustainability efforts and progress.

Change happens in the small details. Let's take a look at ours...

Plastic Free and Compostable packaging

At dk active, we take sustainability seriously at every stage of the supply chain, including our packaging. Our custom compostable mailers, compostable sticky tape, and shipping labels make home composting easy for our customers while minimizing landfill and post-consumer waste. Our garment swing tags are made from recycled paper and are fully recyclable, and we attach them using reusable safety pins. Plus, all our paper packaging is 100% FSC certified, so you can feel good about your purchase knowing it was packaged with sustainability in mind.

Recycling with Textile Recyclers Australia

Circular Manufacturing

At dk active, we believe in taking responsibility for our environmental impact and actively seeking out sustainable solutions. Textile waste is a major issue in the fashion industry, not just limited to discarded clothing, but also in the form of offcuts and fabric scraps during production.

We have partnered with Textile Recyclers Australia to send all our offcuts to their fabric recycling centre, where they are broken down and woven into new yarn to be repurposed into new fabrics and textiles. By doing so, we have achieved a completely circular manufacturing process. We are proud to take steps towards a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.
