Plastic Free July is here, and we couldn't be more behind it.
We try to avoid and reduce our plastic usage as much as possible. In our studio, we drink out of reusable cups, ditch the plastic straws, pack our lunches, bring our own bags... and the list just keeps on going (we'll keep sharing tips!). Our team is highly supportive of an environmentally conscious lifestyle, and we wanted to share some of our favorite tips with you!
As a company, we are constantly striving to be more plastic free. Through deliberate work with our factories, we have greatly reduced our plastic output by leaving out nearly all plastic packaging from our process. Typically, clothing companies receive all of their garments from the factory in individually packaged plastic bags... that adds up quickly! We've asked our factories to leave out the plastic completely, and pack everything together in larger boxes. These boxes are then used to ship out our wholesale orders. Our factory in India makes cloth bags to protect the clothes during shipping, again avoiding unnecessary plastic. In our fashion, we use these bags for organization in our studio. As much as possible, we try to reduce, reuse and recycle.
When it comes to shipping the clothing to you, we send everything out in recycled cardboard or completely compostable bags. Every effort counts, and we wouldn't be who we are if we didn't pay attention to the waste created during EVERY part of our process.
Start little, start big... just get started!
