Monday, 07 December 2020

Environmental‌ ‌impact‌ ‌is‌ ‌been‌ ‌monitored‌‌

Our‌ ‌partners‌ ‌collect‌ ‌data‌ ‌across‌ ‌their‌ ‌supply‌ ‌chains‌, ‌which‌ ‌means‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌well‌ ‌aware‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ environmental‌ ‌impact‌ ‌of‌ ‌our ‌business.‌ ‌Our selected‌ ‌manufacturing‌ ‌partners‌ ‌invest‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ sustainable‌ ‌future.‌ ‌All‌ ‌our‌ ‌partner‌ ‌factories‌ ‌are‌ ‌equipped‌ ‌with‌ ‌state-of-the‌ ‌art‌ ‌Effluent‌ Treatment‌ ‌Plants‌, ‌which‌ ‌remove‌ ‌toxic‌ ‌elements‌ ‌from‌ ‌the‌ ‌water‌ ‌and‌ ‌ensure‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌safe‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ reused.‌ ‌All‌ ‌our‌ ‌clothing‌ ‌manufacturing‌ ‌partners‌ ‌use‌ ‌natural‌ly occurring ‌waters‌ ‌and‌ ‌renewable‌ energy‌ ‌in‌ ‌their‌ ‌manufacturing‌ ‌process.‌ ‌They‌ ‌are‌ ‌recycling‌ ‌their‌ ‌waste‌ ‌waters‌ ‌and‌ ‌are‌ ‌using‌ more‌ ‌and‌ ‌more‌ ‌recycled‌ ‌materials‌ ‌from‌ ‌fabrics‌ ‌and‌ ‌plastics.‌ ‌All‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌fabric‌ ‌waste‌ is collected‌ ‌and‌ ‌recycled.‌ ‌We‌ ‌use‌ ‌recycled‌ ‌packaging‌ ‌materials.‌ ‌

Our‌ ‌average‌ ‌manufacturing‌ ‌footprint‌ ‌per‌ ‌garment‌ ‌piece:‌ ‌

0,32‌ ‌Energy‌ ‌consumption.‌ ‌(kWh/‌ ‌garment‌ ‌piece)‌ ‌
24,5‌ ‌Water‌ ‌consumption.‌ ‌(litres‌ ‌/‌ ‌garment‌ ‌piece)‌ ‌
0,27‌ ‌CO2‌ ‌emissions.‌ ‌(kg‌ ‌/‌ ‌garment‌ ‌piece)‌

We‌ ‌are‌ ‌trying‌ ‌to‌ ‌lead‌ ‌the‌ ‌way‌ ‌in‌ ‌sustainable‌ ‌fashion‌‌

We‌ ‌are‌ ‌never‌ ‌satisfied‌ ‌with‌ ‌our‌ ‌environmental‌ ‌impact.‌ ‌We‌ ‌know‌ ‌there‌ ‌are‌ ‌always‌ ‌better‌ ‌and‌ more‌ ‌sustainable‌ ‌ways‌ ‌to‌ ‌produce‌ ‌clothing‌ ‌and‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌more‌ ‌effective‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌process.‌ ‌As a company‌, ‌we‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌inspire‌ ‌change‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌whole‌ ‌company‌ ‌culture.‌ ‌This‌ ‌is‌ ‌why‌ ‌we‌ ‌are constantly‌ ‌seeking‌ ‌new‌ ‌and‌ ‌better‌ ‌ways‌ ‌to‌ ‌lower‌ ‌our environmental‌ ‌impact.‌ A ‌sustainable future‌ ‌is‌ ‌only‌ ‌achievable ‌if‌ ‌we ‌work‌ ‌hard‌ ‌towards‌ ‌it.‌ ‌We‌ ‌do‌ ‌this‌ ‌because‌ ‌we‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌the best‌ ‌in‌ ‌what‌ ‌we‌ ‌do‌ ‌and‌ ‌out of love‌ ‌of‌ ‌people‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌planet.‌

Our‌ ‌future‌‌

Our‌ ‌dream‌ ‌and‌ ‌our‌ ‌goal‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌produce‌ ‌our‌ ‌products‌ ‌entirely‌ ‌by‌ ‌ourselves‌, ‌in ‌any‌ our own factories, without any ‌subcontractors ‌here‌ ‌in‌ ‌Finland.‌ ‌The‌ ‌materials‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌going‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌are‌ ‌only‌ ‌recycled ‌and‌ ‌sustainable‌.‌ ‌The‌ ‌plan‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌have‌ ‌our‌ ‌own‌ ‌factory‌ ‌in‌ ‌Finland,‌ ‌where‌ ‌we‌ ‌produce‌ ‌our‌ ‌products‌ ‌by‌ ‌ourselves.‌ ‌ ‌

We‌ ‌continue‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌constant‌ ‌progress‌ ‌in‌ ‌preserving‌ ‌the‌ ‌environment‌ ‌as‌ ‌best‌ ‌as‌ ‌we‌ ‌can‌ ‌in‌ all‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌processes. The condition‌s to nature ‌depends‌ ‌on‌ ‌our‌ ‌actions‌ ‌and‌ ‌this‌ ‌is‌ ‌why‌ ‌we‌ ‌try‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌as‌ ‌sustainable‌ ‌as‌ ‌possible.‌ ‌We‌ ‌are‌ ‌only‌ ‌going‌ ‌to‌ ‌choose‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌sustainable‌ ‌materials‌ ‌and‌ ‌produce‌ ‌our‌ ‌products‌ ‌with‌ ‌renewable‌ ‌energy‌ ‌without‌ ‌any‌ ‌harmful‌ ‌chemicals.‌ ‌We‌ ‌want‌ ‌our‌ ‌whole‌ ‌supply‌ ‌chain‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌sustainable‌ ‌and‌ ‌controlled‌ ‌fully‌ ‌by‌ ‌us.‌ ‌This‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌only‌ ‌way‌ ‌to‌ ensure ‌our‌ ‌business‌ ‌is done in a ‌sustainable‌ ‌way‌ ‌as‌ ‌we‌ ‌see‌ ‌best.‌ ‌ ‌
