In August 2018 Ethical Consumer viewed Nkuku's website for the company's environmental policy. Under its values it stated "We work with natural and recycled materials through sustainable methods of production and this shapes our collections. We keep air freight to a minimum, and review our packaging regularly. We are constantly evaluating our processes and looking at ways we can improve. Many of our products are handmade from recycled materials. We gather the waste leftover from other industries including; cotton from discarded t-shirts, leather, metals and glass as well as recycled saris. Recycling allows us to create new and beautiful products with less impact on our environment. We try to recycle as much waste as possible at head office, and use recycled boxes for our trade deliveries where possible. We see the beauty in natural materials, from the grain and character of untreated wood through to the golden hues of eco friendly jute."
Ethical Consumer considered Nkuku's approach to sourcing products which used recycled materials a positive initiative.
Nkuku also listed materials it used on its website.
Due to the fact the company had a turnover of less than £10.2m and was considered to be providing an environmental alternative it received Ethical Consumer's best rating for environmental reporting.
