A note on our environmental responsibility
How to deal with the challenge of being a fashion distributor in 2023? We are sharing our initiatives and thoughts below.
The challenge of being a fashion platform in 2023
It is no surprise that building a universe of fashion is not something that our world demands the most currently. Therefore, it is necessary (and important) for us to put into words what we do to integrate green thinking and initiatives in our daily work when it comes to business partners, materials, packaging, production, and goals for the future.
Choosing the right business partners
When we meet up with potential business partners, we are always interested in hearing about their sustainable choices regarding their collections. Luckily, we often get surprised at how sustainable thinking is already a big part of what our brands do. We are experiencing inspiring creativity and willingness to fight for a greener industry – and that makes our job a lot easier because we can trust the brands that we choose to work with when it comes to building a more green and more accepted fashion industry. Most of our brands are producing their collections in Europe, which we see as an important factor according to the imprint that we are making.

Together with our warehouse, we have decided to only use boxes made from recycled cardboard. Moreover, the boxes have integrated closing functions, making them easy to close without using any tape and to reuse for other purposes instead of throwing them out. We have also replaced the plastic filling with reused cartons, resulting in the very same level of protection. In addition, our data server runs entirely on hydropower, which is 100% free from carbon dioxide (CO2).
“We know that our brands have set up admirable goals for the many next years to come, and we can’t wait to follow their journey towards a more sustainable fashion industry.
We are not perfect – but we are trying to improve
In a time where green initiatives are necessary for our kind of business to exist, we are aware that there is always room for improvement. We know that we are not perfect, but at least that is a start. From here, we can make sure to learn new things and to be curious about the possibilities for making a change.
Goals for the future
We know that our brands have set up admirable goals for the many years to come, and we cannot wait to follow their journey toward a more sustainable fashion industry. According to ourselves, we will continuously make sure to optimize our shipping and packaging methods to minimize our environmental impact. We are always looking for business partners that lead the way when it comes to fighting CO2 emissions and the short life of clothing. We have much to learn, but from the very beginning we have believed in good quality and the device “buy less, buy better” – and this is still close to our hearts. Now, and in the future.
