Wear AM is committed to taking aggressive climate action now, not later. In fact, we believe that any brand that doesn't have a climate action plan is operating in an irresponsible way. Here are some of the things we are doing already.
1). We produce our garments on demand in close geographical proximity to the end user. For products sold in Europe, we produce in Europe. For products sold in North America, we produce in North America. This limits the transportation miles and therefore CO2 emissions it takes for our products to reach you.
2). We now offer the ability to purchase an equivalent carbon offset for your order. Today, those contributions goes towards a reforestation project in South Carolina that aims to capture and reuse CO2 from the atmosphere. Please read more about the Bluesource Pungo River project your offset purchase supports.
3). Our printed products use only one piece of paper as a waste product. The paper used is post-consumer recycled already. It is furthermore recycled after the dye transfer sublimation process (which uses heat and pressure). Our dyes are human and earth friendly and are CSIPA compliant.
4). On certain items, we now use 100% compostable packaging.
5). On the human side of things, the workers who produce these goods are paid above average wages and work in safe, state-of-the-art facilities in North America and Europe.
6). By early 2021 we will be rolling out some products made with recycled fabric.
