Objectives for 2025

Here are 15 objectives for our sustainability and transparency efforts that should be achieved by end of year 2025. We use these objectives to help determine our overall long-term performance on ecological and social sustainability. From 2025 onward new objectives will be set in 5-year cycles.

To be transparent on our progress, will will mark all achieved objective on this list with ✓ and track the overall progress on our annual Sustainability Report. See our 2022 Sustainability report here.

Engagement with Our Community

1. We will add the following garment care sections on our website:
    • Detailed care instructions for each type of material available in our collections
    • Instructions for repairing most common issues on garments such as holes and tears

2. To help educate our community on better choices and practices, we will:

    Material & Production

    5. We will pilot and successfully implement natural dyeing processes in at least one bulk produced product line

      Work Practices

      13. Minimum 50% of our job and internship opportunities us go to marginalized people or otherwise underrepresented people in fashion. With this said, we only work with people based on their talent, not solely because of their identity, and we don't see the two as mutually exclusive ✓

      14. We will hire a person (part-time or freelance) to focus on our company's sustainability efforts in order to make sure we are actively receiving the latest information and setting ambitious objectives and standards.
