Bærekraft

At Øy we focus on achieving sustainability throughout all parts of the process from choosing garments to the package is at your front door. 

An island and a human being both have been formed by time.
Something that must be taken care of and respected.

We aim at contributing to several of the UN Sustainability Goals. As Øy is owned by the Blue Cross charity-organization in Kristiansand, Norway, you are with us to include everyone - no one should be left by themselves.

Sustainability 4 Education Education

In our Blue Cross-projects, we focus on education, life skills and participation in the local environment, and by encouraging life skills opportunities for all. We provide free schooling for vulnerable kids.

Sustainability goals 5 equality Equality

The world is in our view one big island that we need to care for and respect. Being an online store our biggest challenge is to reduce the environmental impact of transportation. Our shipping partners are committed to reduce their carbon footprint by using emission friendly choices in transportation.
