Our commitment to premium, high-quality sustainable aprons, chef and hospitality uniforms undoubtedly sets us apart from much of the competition. 


We ensure that value for money doesn’t equate to ecological damage through unsustainable and damaging farming practices or the support of sweatshops. and we'd like to share with you why you too will love wearing CREAM COLLECTION aprons and apparel.




We only work with Ethical Suppliers 

 At CREAM Collection, we like to ensure that the farmers growing our cotton and the manufacturers assisting in the production of our apparel employ fair trade practices. This means the people involved in the delivery of your apparel are correctly paid, work decent hours and their working environment is suitable and sustainable. Our international manufacturers are audited and accredited by the WRAP foundation who ensure that all social and fair work standards are met. You can read more about the WRAP Foundation here. http://www.wrapcompliance.org/We are proud to have visited all our suppliers who we are delighted to be working with. All Aprons, no matter the style or quantity are proudly and ethically made in Australia. 

We only use Organic Cotton

Modern kitchens are  constantly driven to cook healthier, sustainable, organic food that is better for the body and ‘good for the soul’. As we care about what we put into our bodies (and serve our guests), why don’t we care about what we wear against our skin, or the impact on the environment? 


Sadly 99% of the world's cotton clothing is made from toxic Conventional cotton. Conventional cotton is farmed using toxic pesticides . These toxic pesticides negatively impacts natural wildlife, such as bees, pollinators, birds, earthworms, fresh water & marine life. These toxic pesticides wash off into the soil, reducing the soil’s capacity to grow crops the next year. They also wash into waterways and eventually the ocean, damaging nature along the way. And, they also impact negatively on the communities living around those crops.Once conventional cotton has been grown and harvested, the crop may be treated with petroleum scouring agents, softeners, brighteners, flame retardants, soil retardants, ammonia and formaldehyde. There have even been suggestions that some of the chemical residues are still present in the final garment and can potentially rub off on the wearer.The concept of organic farming includes efficient use of locally available resources along with adapted farming practices such as using natural rain resources, soil fertility management and natural management of pests and diseases. 

Organic farming brings hope back to farmers and the communities they live in. 


Have you ever considered the carbon footprint of what you wear? The impact making that item has had or what it is made out of? Polyester clothing is inorganic, chemically made material (it’s basically plastic) and conventional cotton requires large amounts of water as well as 5.7% of the world’s pesticides to grow (1kg of cotton uses up to 20,000 litres of water to produce – 1kg of cotton will make only one t-shirt and a pair of jeans) -  That’s a massive impact on the environment. 

NO pesticides and very little water is used to grow Organic cotton.

All our cotton is certified by the Control Union and all our cotton passes the Organic 100 Content standard test.


We only offer Carbon Neutral Shipping

Did you know that one of the greatest contributors to global warming is travel -whether by plane, vehicle or vessel. To ensure we are not contributing to global warming, we choose Carbon Neutral delivery partners who deliver your parcels directly to your door, we pay extra to ship 'Carbon Neutral' but this is at no extra cost to you, it's just our way of contributing to a healthier environment. 

Deliveries within Australia are delivered by Sendle and international deliveries are delivered by  DHL with a Carbon Neutral offset. 

Thanks to Sendle, each year we get to vote on a cause closest to our hearts which we would like Sendle to fund, and we are delighted that this year the

carbon credits they purchase from their partner South Pole to offset the emissions they generate from delivering parcels all over Australia are helping fund to very special conservation project in the state of Victoria : The protection of the endangered Long Nose Potoroo


Plastic free packaging

Most garments received from suppliers are individually wrapped in a clear plastic bag. Think of every single garment manufactured globally, every single  garment will be wrapped in plastic at least once in their life. Not ours, we receive our garments "naked" without plastic wraps, which saves up to one tonne of plastic from the environment each year. We're proud to have educated our suppliers with this regard and we are proud that they in turn are educating their other customers about the misuse of plastic too and encouraging their other customers to say No to plastic. 


Plastic free mail bags

If you consider all the online shopping parcels being delivered every day, consider too that 90% of those packages are wrapped in plastic. Not ours, ours are delivered in a robust compostable bag. This is a sturdy mail bag will decompose when placed in a compost pile or in soil and will bio degrade within 3 months and return to being organic material. That sounds good doesn't it? 


And lastly there's something else that will also bio-degrade

When , after years of wearing your CREAM COLLECTION apparel it's time to shed a tear and say goodbye, please don't toss your garment in the garbage bin. Please place your used garment in your worm farm, bury it in the soil, or place it in your compost bin, as it too is good for the soil and will bio degrade and return to where it came from, the earth. That sounds good too doesn't it?
