03 Reduce

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

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce the physical waste at our factory

How We'll Reduce It

We will use fabric more efficiently. Currently, only ~70% of a roll of fabric is used (which is about industry standard). We want to be better than that, either by using scrap pieces for other products or by creating products more efficiently (eg 3D knit)

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from virgin materials by making our products more circular.

How We'll Reduce It

We will launch end of life programs for our customers

95%

What We’re Reducing

Non-biodegradable, non-recyclable materials used in packaging

How We'll Reduce It

Transition all packaging materials to biodegradable AND recyclable materials (package, garment bag, inserts, label)

02

78%

What We’re Reducing

Air freight in upstream transportation

How We'll Reduce It

Reduce transport emissions by limiting air freight in supply chain (samples, prototypes, production runs)

Other Sustainability Notes

MANTRA launched to take a Stand for the Planet. We make low impact performance apparel as a part of our broader mission to connect people to nature so that they are inspired to protect it. Every product is inspired by nature and supports conservations efforts through our 1% for the Planet commitment. And all of our apparel is designed to achieve the lowest carbon footprint possible - recycled materials, low-impact colorization, ethical local production in Los Angeles, and biodegradable packaging are a few of our commitments. But every product has a footprint - no matter how it's made or what it's made from - so we're thrilled to be able to measure, offset and reduce our carbon footprint with this tribe of like-minded brands!
