TREEKID is always looking for implementing new solutions by choosing better and sustainable choices in the selection of its fabrics, manufacturing processes and distribution.
The design of our garments are based in three important statements:
NO NASTY CHEMICALS.
We use recycled denim in most of our products, only GOTS-Certified Organic Cotton in our tees and threads, and waxed cotton prints directly imported from local markets in West Africa to add fun and bright colours to our collection. Also, we only use natural dyes and water based organic certified inks.
We aim to avoid the use of plastic in the garments by only utilising eco friendly fashion hardware like hemp braid cords and wooden buttons.
In the future, we are looking to set a printing studio where we totally create every fabric use in our garments.
ZERO WASTE PHILOSOPHY
It is a visionary goal that we try to achieve in each step we make, even though requires extra time which it could be reflected in our costs but absolutely worthy when we figure out how much fabric was recycled.
After being searching how to give solution to this great issue, we decided to find a way to RE-USE and RE-PURPOSE preloved jeans because it's hard wearing feature, maximising as much as possible the amount obtained, giving an authenticity to each garment.
We also like to encourage customers to reduce the environment impact by home composting packaging, this is a great initiative from heropackaging.com.au
Each garment is designed by Carla and manufactured by The Social Studio, accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia, providing social support and formal training in clothing production, retail and fashion to asylum seekers and immigrants. They champion diversity, community, education, sustainability, design and ethical business practices.
Also, we would like to give back all the love and support received from our customers donating 2% of the annual proceeds to two extraordinary non profit organisations which care about people and their environment,
CHARITY: WATER, that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
1% FOR THE PLANET, it is a like-minded network that works together toward a common goal: protecting the future of our planet
