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.

Other Sustainability Notes

Responsible companies need to be thoughtful, aware, and willing to take action. At Forsake, that means taking time to understand the impact our operations have on local communities and the global environment, and committing to positive changes that are both meaningful and measurable.
