Other Sustainability Notes

Producing new garments isn't sustainable and we don't pretend that it is. Since we are in the business of making goods, we have a responsibility to offset and understand the scope of our environmental impact. First and foremost, we only produce goods based on demand. In a system where brands destroy billions of dollars of merchandise annually without batting an eye, we hope to disrupt this system permanently.
