Eileen Fisher's Recycling Program
Where others see waste, Eileen Fisher sees possibility. They have taken back over 1 million Eileen Fisher pieces since 2009. It’s just one of the ways they are building a better industry, one that takes responsibility for what it makes and where it ends up. With your help, Eileen Fisher can upend the conventional cycle of consumerism and design a future without waste.
The clothes Eileen Fisher makes are made to last. They design simple, timeless clothes in the most sustainable fabrics.
When you no longer wear your clothes, Eileen Fisher will take them back. Pieces in perfect condition are given a good-as-new cleaning and resold through the Renew program.
Many pieces they take back are damaged beyond repair. The team transforms them into one-of-a-kind artworks, pillows and wall hangings using a custom felting method. Since 2018, Eileen Fisher has showcased these distinctive pieces annually at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Vossen's Vegan Fabrics
The Vegan Life Collection is Vossen's first towel collection to be manufactured entirely without animal products. In traditional textile manufacturing, and during the production of convention towels, the use of animal products is standard. Vossen developed a towel that is 100% plant-based, in order to make a contribution to a better world. The collection is 100% vegan and has been certified by the European Vegetarian Union.
Best Years' Fair Trade Initiative
Best Years is an ethical company and ethical sourcing is at the core of all their products. This interest in ethical sourcing led to their 2009 partnership with the Pebble fair trade cooperatives who hand make knitted and crochet toys in rural Bangladesh, creating thousands of fairly paid and flexible jobs in the process. Their ethics extend from the people who make the toys through to the people who play with them, never taking shortcuts with safety.
And since knitting goes hand in hand with cotton, it was a natural process for Best Years to use organic cotton from the Under the Nile ranges.
