Ethical winter goodies - Oxfam Ireland’s team up with Save The Duck

Oxfam Ireland are delighted to announce the launch of a collaboration with their 4 Good Sustainable Business initiative and Save The Duck - which will see a colourful range of high-quality 100% animal free outdoor wear available in select Oxfam shops from today, 8 October.

The Save The Duck jackets in Oxfam shops are unique to the Irish market and will be retailing at 60 percent off the recommended retail price. The new range will be of particular interest to shoppers concerned with environmental and sustainability issues, planet lovers, fashion lovers and outdoorsy adventurers alike. 

Elaine White, Stock Sustainability Manager with Oxfam Ireland said: “It is great to collaborate with a company like Save The Duck who pride themselves on luxury as ‘a matter of quality of life and connection to the beauty of nature’. The company set a world record by being the first entirely animal free clothing to ascend Everest in the history of mountaineering, and now Oxfam are delighted to bring them to our customers across Ireland at a fantastic price.”

In 2019 Save The Duck become the first fashion brand in Italy to obtain B Corp certification meaning they put social and environmental impact objectives on par with economic-financial ones.

White continued: “Under our 4 Good Sustainable Business model, the collaboration was a natural fit as we both aim to protect our planet and its people, and both believe in transparent business models and the responsible management of natural resources in production processes.

“Through our network of shops across the island of Ireland, our Trading team work with retail businesses to divert textiles and other goods from landfill or incineration, transforming would-be greenhouse gas emissions into vital funds that support communities affected by the climate crisis worldwide. 

“By donating end-of-line or excess stock to our retail network, companies cut down on their waste and therefore their carbon footprint by reducing pollutants that end up in our soil, water and air.”

The Save The Duck jackets will be available in select Oxfam shops this week. To avoid disappointment, Oxfam Shop managers advise customers to get down soon to secure a unique and ethical winter bargain - that’s ‘Good 4 You, Good 4 the Planet’.

The Save the Duck range will be available in the following Oxfam shops:  

Belfast, Northern Ireland: Botanic Avenue; Castle Court; Fountain Street.  

Republic of Ireland: Cooks Street, Cork; Dun Laoghaire, Dublin; Galway; Georges Street, Dublin; Malahide, Dublin; Limerick; Rathmines, Dublin; Kilkenny
