10 Carbon Neutral Brands to Love

10 Carbon Neutral Brands to Love

The U.N. came out with a report in October that recommended a carbon tax as the best way to basically save the planet.  I already knew a little about carbon offsets from my research into zero-waste brands. More and more sustainably focused retailers like Reformation are keeping their carbon footprint down with carbon offsets I started looking further into carbon offset programs. This started with research on brands that have either carbon neutral production (meaning the manufacturing doesn’t produce carbon emissions) and/or are purchasing carbon offsets to make sure what they do produce isn’t hurting the planet. Here are my favorites and ones I was surprised by-

Chinti and Parker

Some of the comfiest knitwear around, Chinti and Parker use natural fabrics like organic cotton, and they’ve even incorporated seaweed fibers! They carefully select ethical factories in the E.U. to partner with. Ever conscious of the environmental footprint of their clothing line, they offset their carbon emissions through the Carbon Neutral Company.

Wildlife Works

The Wildlife Works project is a really neat combo of carbon-neutral factory and brand. The brand itself is fair trade, uses natural certified materials and uses it’s carbon neutral factory for production. If that didn’t make you smile, I bet this will. The factory is located in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary that protects over 500,000 acres of dryland forest. In addition to skilled workers, they also employ (with a living wage) rangers, greenhouse farmers, and officers. When they work with brands they help them purchase carbon offsets to get the brand to carbon neutral as well. Some brands that have produced with them include Raven + Lily, and Soko.

ASOS

I was really surprised to learn ASOS is also carbon neutral. They are the first retail company to achieve this and worked with CarbonNeutral Protocol to help reduce their carbon footprint. They made changes like using recycled materials and reducing the size and airtime of their products. However, it should be noted that it’s easier for them to do this as they are all online and they still offer lots of unethical selections, so stick to their green room.

SDress

SDress is the perfect brand for seasonless, elevated styles. It’s an Italian brand through and through. They use eco-certified Italian fabrics and are able to manufacture with minimal water. The process is carbon-neutral and has even been certified by the World Wildlife Fund.

Level 99

Denim done right. This California brand is supremely conscious of their impact and of the California water crisis. They use sustainable materials like organic cotton, tencel, and modal, and combine them with natural dyes and the manufacturing facility has a state-of-the-art laundry system that reduces and recycles water and they work with TerraPass for their off-setting program and help fund carbon neutralizing projects around the world.

Will’s Vegan Shoes

These shoes are practical, timeless, and definitely classy. They are ethically produced in Portugal with vegan leather that has been produced with bio-oil derived from cereal that was grown in a carbon-neutral process instead of something typical like petrol. Will’s commitment to carbon-neutrality is felt throughout the brand, packaging non-treated and has a carbon neutral supply chain.

Alima Pure

In 2018, Alima Pure celebrated their 10th year being carbon-neutral. They work with CarbonFund to offset their corporate carbon emissions.  That’s not all the good stuff they have in the background. They are a member of 1% for the Planet and are also a Certified B Corporation. So the next time you apply their shimmery mineral foundation, know it’s not just good for your skin, it’s good for the earth too!

Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher has always proved brands can dream and achieve big things in the realm of sustainability. big (but achievable) sustainability goals. They’ve committed to doing way less, with less water in their dyehouses, and less waste on their floors. It’s also pretty amazing the brand is currently carbon-neutral, but by 2020 they’ll be carbon positive. They purchase renewable energy credits for their electricity consumption and offsetting their shipping by building wind turbines with Native Energy.

Nae Shoes

Nae features some of my favorite innovative, sustainable materials in their vegan shoes. Pineapple leather, recycled PET, and sturdy cork are just some of them. They use certified ethical factories in Portugal to tap into the amazing heritage of shoe-making in the region. The factory that crafts the vegan sneakers uses a carbon-neutral manufacturing system.
