We love working with this team; they are warm, welcoming, gorgeously authentic and lots of fun.  Initially, we were a little unaware of the fabric of the Primark organisation and pleasantly surprised to establish some key facts; Primark are in the top 5% of Ethical Trading Initiative Brands, founding members of the Act Initiative – improving wages for workers in key sourcing countries, recycling or reusing 96% of their store and warehouse waste, and 1 in 4 of their clothing items are made from recycled or mostly sustainably resourced materials.

They’ve come a long way since opening their first store in Dublin, now employing 70000 colleagues worldwide with stores in over 14 countries and 1000 factories in 28 countries.  They continue to grow and have 130 new international store openings planned in the next five years.  You may have also spotted their new website showcasing many more of their products.  Their mantra of offering amazing fashion, at amazing prices with something for everyone continues.
