03 Reduce

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

  • We are improving our production timing in order to transport an additional 20% of our shipments from air shipping to sea shipping in order to reduce our shipping impact.

  • We are working with our suppliers to assess their impact and to make improvements where possible, including by implementing environmentally-friendly power sources and implementing more recycled and biodegradable natural fibers.

Sustainability Story

As active people, we believe we are a product of our environment. We believe it is not just our responsibility but our obligation to protect the world we are a part of and enjoy. This belief impacts everything, from the fabrics we choose to the organizations we support. We speak up and put our money where our mouth is. We have been working with Climate Neutral to measure, reduce, and offset our carbon emissions. This three-step process gives us net-zero carbon emissions.
