Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from purchased electricity at our factory/office headquarters.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to reduce our company's carbon footprint by purchasing 20,000 kWhs per month of Renewable Energy.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to guide our clients towards more sustainable material options. Before ordering new materials we will first offer stock we have on hand and/or suggest ordering dead stock. This will reduce the carbon footprint of materials being freighted.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to include sustainable material options in all of our new client proposals as well as in our marketing efforts.

Other Sustainability Notes

As a B Corp Certified, zero waste creative factory, Portland Garment Factory (PGF) has implemented sustainable practices across all departments. From the development of products, material sourcing, and production, to general operations, we are committed to being as sustainable as possible every day. Our zero waste program means that we never throw any material waste in the trash. All materials take on new life either as new products or are donated to the community. We pulverize all material scraps that are at the end of their life cycle into PGF Puff, which we use for filling in our Gift Shop products. PGF is also known for our creative ingenuity in taking existing products and making them into reworked goods that have the power to spread a message of sustainability on a global scale. We believe that these sustainability initiatives are ongoing and ever-evolving. We are committed to learning, listening, and implementing increased measures as we continue on this important journey!
