We are united and dedicated to creating a more environmentally friendly, sustainable and supportive fashion industry!

Here at Captain, we don’t like to beat around the bush... We like to get straight to the point!
 

Our dream? To help create a greener fashion industry and green fashion by relying on our three key values: our products, our planet and our people.

This societal and environmental approach has been used for many years by the female leadership team at the head of our company!

1# MATERIAL SOURCING THAT IS RESPONSIBLE & “ECO-DESIGNED”  

 

 

I

 

We try to use environmentally friendly viscose, recycled polyester and organic cotton as much as possible.

This season, 25% of our collection is made from eco-designed fabrics.
We hope to increase this to 50% by 2025.

And we haven’t stopped there! All our woven labels are made from recycled polyester, and we no longer use cardboard labels at all (this means 1.5 million less labels in the bin each season)

What about our packaging? We’ve said goodbye to plastic! We now only use polyester and recycled brown kraft paper (from eco-managed forests!)

1# (RE)USE (RE)CYCLE (RE)DUCE

Upcycling is calling: We can switch to recovery mode with our limited-edition collections that are made from leftover fabrics and give our products a new lease of life!

Fast fashion is out: we’re focusing on collections that combine high-quality pieces and timeless style. For us, the most important thing is guaranteeing quality over quantity. What about pre-orders? Our limited-edition pieces are all made to order... perfect for preventing overconsumption, that is what we call green fashion!

1# A « HAPPY FAMILY » 

 

“Our corporate values are strong and are based on people, sincerity and transparency. We are a family. We have shared all our happy moments and our challenging times; we have grown together for over 25 years. At Captain Tortue, new generations coexist with older ones – and that’s just the way we like it. ”


Business, loyalty and a human touch: our winning trio!

The proof is in the pudding: we have worked closely with our partners and suppliers for more than 25 years.

Transparency, expertise and the respect of all regulations concerning labour, the environment and animal welfare (we no longer use real fur) are our shared priorities.
All our factories are thoroughly audited to ensure that they respect their worker’s rights and use environmentally friendly practices.

 



2# WE SUPPORT CAUSES THAT ARE CLOSE TO OUR HEART  

 

A visionary and committed company would be nothing without a big heart! We have come up with a range of different initiatives to help both people and the planet, it’s part of our DNA.

Bee friend

Since 2018 we’ve sponsored several beehives in partnership with the French organisation “Le rucher des Julien ”. This network of around fifty beekeepers advocates for artisanal and local beekeeping that respects bees, and they produce French honey.
 

Before becoming home to the CAPTAIN TORTUE offices, our site was covered in flowers, much to the delight of our local bees. So it’s only natural that we now have lots of bees living in our garden and that we plant flowers for them.

 


 

3# ECO-FRIENDLY PRACTICES MADE BY CAPTAIN

 

 

 

 

We love our planet, and we work hard every day to make it even more beautiful!

 

 Sorting and recycling rubbish is our top priority! This year, we collected and sorted a total of 100 litres of rubbish on World Environment Day.

 We gave unused fabrics a second chance at life by using them to create a limited-edition collection of bags and notebooks. They were a massive hit!

We use the Captain Tortue app to digitise as much of our support material as possible.

 Thanks to our new TIER III+ data centre, we use 100% renewable energy.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

 

______________________________________

 

1# WHO RUN THE WORLD ? 

 

 

Here at Captain Tortue, female leadership is the rule and not the exception. Every woman gets to live their own success story.

We let women do business their way, we support them while giving them their freedom and we train them and share our expertise . We’ve even established a network that helps them to develop even further.

Today we have over 5500 style consultants in France and over 1000 in Europe. Freedom, independence and opportunities to evolve – that’s what motivates our fantastic team.



2# Respectful and rewarding fashion 

 

 

At Captain Tortue, we offer a community fashion experience that brings women together for an enjoyable shopping session. Our clothes are unique and ideal for women that want to stand out from the crowd! Our helpful community of style consultants and friends are always at hand to help them pick out the perfect pieces.

 

Body positivity is also a top priority for us. This is why some of our pieces are available from size 34 through to size 52... We have something for everyone, no matter your body shape or your age.
