Why is Sustainable Fashion Important?

Yes, you can build your wardrobe and stay eco-friendly. 

Shopping sustainable fashion is a great way to support the environment as you build your wardrobe. 

Before your next online shopping haul, choose brands that are doing the work behind the scenes to reduce their carbon footprint. And how do you know which companies are committed to social responsibility? Typically you can find the information on their website, or by researching their company mission or values. You can learn more about our commitment to sustainability through our Toward Ever Better initiative on our site.

When you choose brands that produce sustainable clothing, this is what you’re saying “yes” to when you add to your cart:

  1. Cutting Down on Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Adding a new piece to your wardrobe comes at a price. The fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the global carbon dioxide output. We also eliminated 99% of all air-freight from supply chain as shipping sea freight reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

  1. Supporting Fair Labor Practices 

Every year, nearly 11 million tons of clothing ends up in landfills in the United States, which releases harmful toxins into the air. 

A leading culprit behind this is fast fashion, which involves major brands selling cheap clothing on rapid production schedules. This production process often puts garment workers at risk to toxic chemicals.

Clothing should never come at a cost to someone’s health. That’s why our team is a proud affiliate of the Fair Labor Association to ensure equitable treatment of all persons throughout the supply chain. 

  1. Using Resourceful Resources 

300 million tons of plastic are produced per year, and while you might not think that you’re wearing plastic, you are. 

The fashion industry accounts for a fifth of this production. And as we know, only a small percentage of plastic actually gets recycled properly. 

We want to be a solution, so we looked at our current operating materials and thought through ways we can do better for the planet. We’re committed to 90% sustainable clothing by 2025. This starts with our sustainable lines, built from smart, long-lasting recycled materials, backed by the Global Recycled Standard.
