• IrelandsEye Knitwear Sustainable Operations


    Our factory is a “passive room”, which means that we can keep the temperature at 22-23 degrees without using heat or air conditioning. We have achieved this by strategically placing the doors to open and close and work off the heat generated from the machines.

    All of our lighting is on sensors, to keep our energy waste to a minimum.

    We keep our water consumption as low as possible by recycling all the steam from our steaming machines. We also filter and purify the water we do use, which enables us to use less soap to wash the garments.

    "We try and recycle everything and minimise everything we can, from the lighting systems through to the way we produce steam".

    - Brendan O'Sullivan, Production Director at IrelandsEye Knitwear


    We're proud to have reached a point where we have zero production waste. Any waste yarn, offcuts or waste materials, such as yarn cones, are donated to social enterprises like ReCreate, where the materials are used for art classes in schools and special needs facilities.

    We also donate some of our yarn to local community knitting groups who knit blankets, scarfs and hats for charities and people in need.

    "At this stage we have zero production waste. We recently started working with a social enterprise called ReCreate. They sometimes leave here with boxes full of off-cuts, which they distribute to schools and special needs schools, so they take pretty much all of our production waste".

  • Plastic Free Packaging IrelandsEye Knitwear


    All of our packaging is fully recyclable and contains zero plastic, and we are really proud to have been able to keep that personal touch, from the tissue paper it’s wrapped in to the personally hand written notes that go out with every order. When you open your IrelandsEye purchase, we want you to feel all the love that went into it, from beginning to end.

    "When you're selling a natural product, the environment obviously has to come into it, so we're constantly striving to get everything as sustainable as possible".

    - Michelle Burke, General Manager at IrelandsEye Knitwear
