It’s really that simple!
In the future, we aim to only design products and packaging with sustainable materials.
This includes redesigning our current products as well.
We are currently testing to use only recycled polyester rmanufactured from used PET bottles.
Using only environmentally-friendly recycling process
Nothing goes to waist
Each year, we have an outlet sale where we sell returned items, samples, prototypes, and some products that have minor damage. We do this because we believe in reducing waste, unlike many larger fashion brands. By offering these items at a discounted price, we can give them a second chance instead of throwing them away. Our outlet sale is very popular and typically draws hundreds of people waiting in line on the opening day.
European distribution & Norwegian shipping center is open.
We aim to make shipping to you faster and as local as possible. Thats why we are opening more local distrubtion centers. This will allow us to avoid using carbon-intensive shipping methods when possible and to open distribution centers around the world to reduce the impact of final mile shipping."
We’re doing everything we can,
But we can’t do it alone...
