Sustainable Men's Underwear & Why It Matters
Sustainability means different things to different people.
For some, it means living in harmony with nature; for others, it means being environmentally conscious & for still others, it means making sure that future generations will have a better life than we do.
For Reer Endz Men's underwear, it means making the least negative impact on the planet as possible, learning more every day & making as many positive changes as we can along the journey.
Sustainable fashion is a term used to describe clothes made using materials that are environmentally friendly and do not harm the environment. The most common types of sustainable fabrics include organic cotton, recycled polyester, hemp & linen.
Our goals at Reer Endz organic cotton underwear are simple.
We want to eliminate waste, conserve energy & water, avoid chemicals, & wear organic cotton as much as we possibly can.
That's why we choose GOTS certified organic cotton because it's natural, healthier for you & better for the environment.
Organic cotton breaks down better & is less of a pollutant than the synthetic fibers that are being found in our oceans and water supplies.
Sustainability is an important concept in business that has become increasingly relevant over the past few years. It refers to the ability of a company to continue operating while maintaining its current level of performance and quality without compromising the future well-being of society.
Why Sustainability Matters Today
As the global population continues to rise, so too does our demand for natural resources. This puts pressure on the environment, as well as on businesses that rely on these resources.
To ensure that business practices continue to meet the needs of society while protecting the environment, companies must adopt sustainable business practices. At Reer Endz we started this journey a few years back when we switched from conventional cotton to organic cotton, you can read about those benefits and positive impacts on our environment HERE.
We have all heard about the environmental impact of business practices like plastic straws and single-use coffee cups. Now, we must also consider the impact of our own businesses on the environment.
Our dedication to sustainability goes beyond how products are created. We also consider how they get to your doorstep.
At Reer Endz all of our online men's underwear orders are sent in compostable packaging made by the Better Packaging Co. Their comPOST range is made from bio-plastics, they're partly made from plants and they're designed to break down i.e. not last FOREVER.
Our mailers are
✓ Made from corn starch, PLA & PBAT
✓ Certified home compostable AS-5810
Our wholesale orders are sent out using upcycled cardboard boxes that we have received our stock in from our supplier.
There are many ways to start your sustainable journey. One of the easiest ways to begin is by making small changes to your existing buying habits.
When you go to your local coffee shop, take your keepcup that can be used over and over again. When you go to your local store, take your own reusable bags.
