03 Reduce

Forsake is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • Purchase 100% of all leather from Leather Working Group Gold-Rated suppliers, which use up to 48% less energy during sourcing.

  • Distribute DTC shipments from locations closer to end customers, reducing our reliance on expedited air shipping methods and length of last mile delivery.
