Socko sells luxurious, unisex socks made from upcycled materials that go the distance. All of its socks are made using waste that may have otherwise gone to landfill or recycled yarn from materials such as polyester made from plastic bottles and nylon made from fishing nets.
Each pair of socks comes with a swatch of yarn and a darning needle, as well as a three-step darning guide, so customers can extend the life of their socks for as long as possible. UK-based Socko is a member of the First Mile initiative, so customers can return socks for recycling when they’re finally beyond repair. The female-led company also uses 100% plastic-free packaging, which can be recycled by kerbside collection. This approach means Socko has been recognised for its contribution to ethy’s Clean Planet standards.
Socko is a member of 1% For The Planet, a global network of businesses, individuals and non-profit organisations that commit at least 1% of their profits to support causes fighting for social and environmental justice. The company also volunteers at repair cafes to promote its repair and reuse mission among its local community.
