Sustainability

#REDUCING #REUSING #RECYCLING

We create value through products that use raw materials and processes which help us reduce our environmental impact.

Working towards sustainability

Our goal is to lead the change towards a more sustainable fashion industry. We make an enormous effort to find materials and develop production processes that are more environmentally friendly.

Join life

Our commitment to sustainability is a goal we work towards every single day so we can offer more ethical and responsible products.

Products

We put our Join Life labels on those garments produced using raw materials and technology that help us reduce the environmental impact of our products.

Suppliers

We’ve developed a traceability scheme that lets us know exactly where and how our garments have been manufactured.
