What do we look for in the brands and products we carry?

This means that products, materials, and resources are maintained
in the economy for as long as possible and minimizing waste. Garments
that are recycled, reused, repaired, and continuously work toward zero
waste throughout their entire supply chain.

This includes:
- Garments made-to-order or made in very small quantities
- Garments that are zero waste or reuse scrap fabrics/materials
- Use of recycled or up cycled fabrics
- Ensured to be fabrics that are recyclable
- Garments that can be worn in many different ways 

This means that water is sustainably managed in all stages of the
supply chain. Products that have been closely monitored throughout their
production to make sure that fresh water sources are not compromised

This includes:
- Fabrics that are less fresh water intensive, such as linen or hemp
- Garments that have had water intensive stages cut out of the supply chain by using recycled or up-cycled fabrics
- Garments that employ less water intensive dyeing and treatment methods or minimize this as much as possible

This means that the amount of pollution created and released into
the environment is significantly lower than the industry average. Brands
that do this well show awareness of pollution related issues in their
supply chains and make a clear effort to minimize the use of chemicals
that can cause water, air, and soil pollution.This includes:- Opting for certified organic fabrics- Using natural materials that do not require fertilizers or pesticides to grow- Avoidance of dyeing/treatment of fabrics using toxic methods- Avoiding fabrics that release micro plastic when washed- Ensuring suppliers have proper waste water treatment systems- Cutting out polluting stages of the supply chain by using deadstock or up cycled fabrics

This means that information is disclosed about all stages of
production that a garment goes through. Brands which do this well
provide detailed information about all stages of their supply chain and
evidence of any certifications that they may hold.This includes:- Third-party certifications that provide insight into the supply chain- Provide informative behind the scenes content-
Providing specific production information for each product, such as a
breakdown of the production of the product, stages of production, how
the product is sustainable at each stage

This means that welfare for animals is a priority and not harmed
during the production process. Brands which consider this are clear and
transparent about their use of of animal-derived materials in their
production. They avoid using any materials that require the
harming/killing of animals. If they are to use animal-derived materials
they make sure that their suppliers comply with strict animal welfare
regulationsThis includes:- Completely avoiding the use of animal-derived materials- Pledge to only sell vegan products (avoid leather, fur, etc.)- Hold animal welfare certifications- Use only recycled or up cycled animal-derived materials
