Our Stance on Sustainability
Our products & packing- Securing a sustainable supply of materials is fundamental to the future growth of our business and achieving our ambition to deliver positive impact. Our approach is to sustainably source to the highest standards from our network of suppliers.
Our programs- We focus on upcycling and mending as a cornerstone for our programs. We teach children the lifecycle of clothing and how to extend items with simple upcyling design projects. Through our sewing classes we teach the basics of mending to also expand the life of garments. According to the World Wildlife Fund, it can take up to 2,700 liters of water to make one single T-shirt, and that is the equivalent of three years worth of drinking water. Beyond the impact on water conservation, clothes require energy to create and transport, and they produce waste. And then there’s the sordid history associated with the fashion industry’s labor practices. If we can teach our future fashion designers to mend and upcycle we've already raised a generation of responsible designers that are conscience about the world we live in.
Our pricing and the art of shopping- When you buy high-quality clothing you invest in pieces that are made to last. This way, you are maximizing the usage of the clothing that you already own. This is also apart of our programming and teaching methodologies. We believe in FUN FASHION that focuses on responsible, quality fashion, design focused items with the "fast fashion" price. The way we do that is by offering smaller quantities and utilizing our network of fashion ambassadors to sell quality products at smaller quantities.
