NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
No matter how much we try to drive positive environmental impacts by sourcing only regenerative fabrics, it is really important to acknowledge that any clothing item, due to a long and complex supply chain, has negative externalities. That’s why we really encourage you to buy only what you need, and why we invest a lot of time and resources in our circularity strategy.
But a core part of our sustainability is to measure these negative externalities, so we can be aware of them and continue working to reduce them, and so you can also understand what’s behind the pieces that you buy. We work with an external partner who audits our supply chain and measures, for each of our garments, our water usage, our CO2 emissions and our energy consumption.
This is where we are strongest. On average our pieces use 94% less water than a conventional garment. That means that we save 2,922 litres of water per piece sold.
While all our dyes are GOTS or OEKO-TEX certified, we are running tests to work with fully natural, vegetable dies in our next collections.
Most of our fabrics come from mills and factories powered only by renewable energies. Additionally, on average our pieces use 12% less energy than a conventional garment.
We are planning to work only with mills and factories fully powered by green energy by 2022.
All our supply chain is located in Europe, from the farms where our fabrics come from to the workshops were the clothes are sewn. As a result, our garments save on average 34% of emissions.
Final delivery to customers is still inefficient and we are looking for greener companies for these deliveries, particularly in city areas.
