“It’s not that we CAN make a difference. It’s that we DO make a difference. Everything we do has an impact on something or someone else. We don’t get to decide whether we CAN make a difference. We get to decide only if the difference we make is negative or positive. There are no neutral actions.” – Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
Our Choices Matter
We like to work with socially conscious brands who provide transparency into their supply and manufacturing chain and take responsibility for fair wages and safe working conditions at every step in the plant to garment process. We’re on board with empowering small-scale producers and artisans in the developing world when local sourcing is not possible. We particularity like to see the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization) certification.
HEALTHY FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET
It’s no secret that modern fashion industry is the 2nd largest polluter in the world. The good news is that it is possible to create garments using sustainable textiles, non-toxic dyes and recycled materials. We also like to work with companies which further use their resources to help protect the environment with initiatives such as recycling, a minimal-waste approach and other creative solutions. Extra brownie points for compliance with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which defines high-level environmental and social criteria.
The average fashion store currently pumps out large volumes of low-quality clothing for 52 micro-seasons per year. We partner with brands which are committed to slow fashion and take the time to create high quality garments with enduring, classic style that are build to last.
We are not a niche, we are a revolution. Join us!
