For Love And Lemons
SUSTAINABILTY REPORT Happening Now: Spring 2022
We’re moving away from traditional polyester and transitioning to recycled polyester to avoid creating new waste. We’re giving already existing material new life which lessens greenhouse gas emissions and ensures a more circular lifespan for a garment. However, since recycled polyester still sheds some microfibers, we are now carrying Guppyfriend Washing Bags. These bags reduce the fibers they shed, and trap those that do.
MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
We’re opting to use viscose and rayon where we can since they are made from cellulose fibers - wood pulp to be exact. We realize this isn’t the most ideal option, but as we evolve our sustainability efforts, a step away from traditional polyester is a step in the right direction.
LEANING INTO LINEN
Linen is made from flax plants and uses less water than traditional cotton to create fiber. We want to transition to using organic linen wherever possible.
We’ve partnered with GRS-certified sustainable trim vendors to source better options for garment lining, buttons, zippers, drawcords and all other garments detailing.
OUR GREEN INITIATIVE
We have officially partnered with Cloverly which creates a simple way to offset the carbon emissions of your online order. With Cloverly we are able to purchase renewable energy offsets to make your shipment “green” based on your package’s weight and destination.
