CSR & sustainability

What is CSR?

 

CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility is a self-acting business model that encloses all practice by companies to uphold intensions of a sustainable development with the aim of being socially responsible.
By practicing Corporate Social Responsibility, companies need to be economically viable, positively impact society, and respect and preserve the environment.
There is no such thing as “the only way” to practice CSR. Today, it is more about embedding CSR practices in your company in a way that is consistent with your brand DNA, embracing what you do and who you are.
In many factories in the fashion industry, people still work long hours, often underpaid under unworthy conditions, and the workers are often poor, young and uneducated.

CSR and BY GARMENT MAKERS

 

To BY GARMENT MAKERS, the working conditions for the garment workers are of great importance. Fortunately, using European suppliers helps us a lot on our journey to design and produce a responsible production of sustainable fashion. At BY GARMENT MAKERS, we have a corporate sustainability commitment to our garment workers, and we visit our production facilities on a regular basis to make sure the workers are taken good care of, concerning their working conditions and welfare in general. The carefully chosen factories produce ethical, sustainable clothing under safe and healthy working conditions and pay the garment workers legal wages. Being true to the basic principles of BY GARMENT MAKERS and to assure that all our suppliers are socially responsible, we invested in achieving the highest standard of certification within sustainable fashion, GOTS.

CSR vs. sustainability

 

CSR is definitely based on a sustainable mindset. It is especially based on actions we can take towards sustainable development.
Our focus on high quality and long-lasting products is another approach to sustainability – creating slow fashion clothes that last and can be used multiple times. Why focus on sustainable fashion? In recent years, sustainability has become a buzzword and turned a few heads. However, it has been in the DNA of BY GARMENT MAKERS from the very beginning to produce sustainable slow fashion clothes.
Slow fashion is the movement of designing, creating and buying garments for quality and longevity. It encourages slower production schedules, fair wages, lower carbon footprints and close to zero waste.

GOTS certification

 

The GOTS certification holds factories and brands to the strictest environmental and social criteria for organic fibers, certifying every production step of the garment, from growing and harvesting ecological cotton until the clothes reach the customers.

Sustainable clothing

 

At BY GARMENT MAKERS, we believe the future demands a different and more sustainable mind-set of us all. Consumers must recognize fashion decisions not as an insignificant part of a modern lifestyle that changes with every season, but as an environmental and social responsibility that could create a cleaner environment.

Sustainable trends

 

BY GARMENT MAKERS highly recommend that you sell your used BY GARMENT MAKERS clothes to second-hand stores or give them away for free to people that need them more. Creating and buying ethical clothes is a common responsibility.
Making the conscious decision to buy sustainable menswear will have a significant impact to the planet and the people on it.

Stay sustainable!
