The Collective

The following companies are part of our collective. You can support us by using the businesses that are changing. It is difficult for big business to adapt but small businesses are nimble and can make transformations quickly. To find out what we’re up to click the links below.

At The Boot Lab we regularly question ourselves and whether we’re too small to really have an impact? Our business model works. Products arrive from the big suppliers and we sell them to the customer. Through training and a passion for skiing, we’re able to supply an excellent product. And we’ve got a stellar team of boot-fitters who get as much joy from making a boot fit well as they do from skiing itself. We could easily continue as we are and rest on our laurels. But as a small business we’re beginning to realise that we can actually make changes that will lead to big differences and to make this happen we need to take the lead. By making several adjustments to the way our business operates we’re able to make lots of small gains resulting in bigger transformations. This has really come to the forefront in our minds this winter and we’ve realised that we really can make a difference. We’ve got loads of little projects on the go. We’re working towards removing as much plastic as possible from our boot-fitting process. We’re recycling, repairing, re-using, promoting eco-friendly brands, putting pressure on the suppliers to become more eco friendly and planting trees.
