Sustainability

Sustainability is an uncompromisable pillar at the heart of Awear’s decision making process. We’ve selected outstanding partners that believe in our mission and share our sustainability vision. We know the work isn’t done. We’re committed to a system of continuous improvement and evaluation that keeps sustainability front of mind.
Goals

Awear is making public commitments to the environment and community. We've committed to completely reducing virgin forest fiber packaging by 2021 and offering eco-friendly packaging alternatives for all products by end of 2020. With the support of Prana we'll be setting goals for future operations.

Packaging

3 billion trees are logged every year for packaging - many from endangered forests. That’s why we’ve partnered with Prana’s Responsible Packaging Movement to support next generation solutions without single-use plastic or virgin forest fiber.

Production

From dying to cut-and-sew, all elements of garment production occur here in California. We know our vendors by name. By prioritizing local production, Awear’s reduced our total carbon footprint and reinvested in local businesses.

Fabric

With minimal growing requirements, bamboo has a lower environmental impact than traditional clothing crops—making it an obvious selection for Awear. Farmed from low-impact, pesticide-free bamboo, our certified-organic fabric meets OEKO, OCS and GOTS standards. Our Partners have cut out the unneeded chemicals and focused on environmentally safe, low-reactive components.
