Revive, reduce, renew

Anyone who rides a bike knows of the deep connection between riding and nature. After all what is a bike without natures challenge and its beautiful view?

Revive, reduce, renew

As riders it as our duty to do all we can to reduce the harm, protect the irreplaceable and show our affection for the world we love to ride.

In 2019 we undertook a period of ‘environmental reflection’. This year-long project led to the development of our: Revive, reduce, renew strategy.

We are committed to using, where possible, recycled fabrics and future-friendly technology to make our performance clothing.

We are committed to developing supply chain protocols that reduce our impact. 

We are committed to evaluating operational behaviour and renewing it with less impactful alternatives.


All of our SS23 collection is made from fabrics using recycled fibres. We are actively involved in the research, sourcing and testing of recycled performance materials.

Like many environmental issues, the subject of recycled materials is not a straightforward one. The approach must be holistic in order to develop truly sustainable and responsible products. The manufacturing process and distance travelled from the source must be considered when selecting fabrics and components. Currently, not all recycled fibre fabrics are as durable as existing ‘virgin fibre‘ fabrics. This is why, at present TICCC products may not use recycled fabrics throughout its collection. As technology develops and improves this will change.

One area we can make a significant difference is by continuing to develop high-quality, durable products. Our make less, make the best, make it versatile product philosophy delivers in line with our impact goals. We use only the highest quality fabrics and components available as they last longer. Extending the lifespan of existing ‘virgin fibre’ products is as important as making future products with recycled fibres, or using other ‘future friendly’ technology.

We make our products in the best European construction houses to ensure our products stand up to the needs of our demanding sport. All fabrics used in the production of our products have industry standard health, safety and environmental certifications, such as Bluesign®, OEKO-TEX® and GRS. 

A large aspect of a garment’s impact is generated through laundering. It was important for us to identify and offer a solution which will help counter the impact once the garment left us. We recommend Guppyfriend. Guppyfriend has developed a washing bag which will reduce synthetic microfibre pollution. Microfibre pollution is a major threat to our rivers and oceans. The bag also helps prolong the lifespan of your TICCC garments.

All TICCC products are made responsibly and ‘close to home’ in Europe and the UK.

One of the biggest threats to the environment comes from transportation. Reducing the distance travelled by goods and raw components helps us dramatically minimise our impact. All TICCC products are made ‘close to home’ in Europe and the UK. Our direct-to-consumer model also helps us eradicate additional layers of transportation. In the last two years, we have ‘reworked’ our supply chains so that 98% of fabrics and components used in our products come from Europe. 

We only work with people who share our commitment to making quality performance products responsibly. We work with our partners closely on all aspects of our manufacturing activity to make sure we are ‘environmentally efficient’. Our production quantities are carefully judged and managed to ensure we minimise any surplus and waste.  


We continue to work closely with all our key partners. Together we have replaced fossil fuel with renewable energy, and we have implemented a reuse over recycle policy.

Garment production requires significant energy. Reducing emissions by replacing fossil fuel with renewable energy is a key carbon footprint reduction factor for the textile industry. TICCC and all key manufacturing partners use 100% renewable energy. 

All TICCC product packaging is currently bio degradable. The topic of packaging is a complex issue which is constantly evolving. As like all environmental issues it is a ‘work in progress’ scenario. We continue to research and develop packaging solutions that further help us reduce our impact.

We have been working closely with our partners to reassess our collective operational activity. As a result we have been able to reduce the amount of plastic required to fulfil our internal shipping and transportation needs. Where plastic is still being used the operation has been reconfigured so that plastic is reused multiple times in preference to being recycled.
