ORGANICO SUSTAINABILITY STANDARDS
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. At Organico, we are driven by the purpose and the transparency of the labels we work with, in order to bring you products of great workmanship, made with love and created with an intent to reinvent the fashion industry's growing footprint.
In order to be part of the Organico family, labels must show a commitment to our core values, which are important to us and to you. Read more about our core values.
We all need to consider our footprint and ability to reduce the waste and its effects on the environment.
This can only be done by making a conscious decision of using eco friendly products. Eco-friendly products are products that are not harmful to the environment. These are products made from organic and/or all-natural ingredients. They also come in recyclable compostable, or biodegradable packaging.
By our definition: The word "handmade" indicates that the garment was made by hand, or perhaps a hand stitched collar or embroidered sleeve. It may also mean that a single person constructed the garment, rather than multiple workers.
At Organico, we focus on the natural side of things, and just like you wouldn’t want to eat products full of chemicals, we don’t think you should have to wear them either! Our sustainable/organic products have been created without the use of harmful chemicals throughout their value chain. From native rain fed cotton to natural dyes; there’s many ways that clothing can be both of a noticeable high quality and sustainable, making it better for both you and our environment.
Our positive influence not only impacts the environment, but also the people that create it. Our products are those that have been created by individuals who have received living wages, safe working conditions and other basic necessities that make their lives a little easier.
80% of the clothing we throw out still has a 70% lifespan and even just the process of manufacturing clothing is equally as wasteful. Our minimal waste products have been created through new upcycling and recycling strategies, and we aim to maximise the use of our textiles to prevent off-cut waste. Reduce your waste footprint, it’s not hard to do; you can help reduce pollution and environement too.
LOCAL OR TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUE
Many of our labels collaborate with local communities to create products that reflects their heritage, practices, and way of life. Contemporary design makes use of traditional techniques that span global cultures and include experimenting with materials.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, we must preserve the planet's wildlife. Labels that adhere to this value use vegan alternatives, meaning no animals or animal by-products are used in making these products.
