This is why we are carefully examining each element – from the raw cotton in our fabric to the metal that makes up our hardware – and making sustainable and eco-friendly choices whenever we can while ensuring the quality, style, comfort, and fit you expect from a pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans.
Our ultimate goal is to ensure that over 80% of our products will have sustainable properties – certified by measurable, third-party indexes – by 2023.
Our Sustainable For All Mankind label is a badge of honor. Each style that bears this tag is comprised of one or more of the following:
+ Organic or recycled cotton
+ Cotton sourced through the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) or Cotton LEADS program
+ Oeko-Tex Leather Standard, Recycled, or Sustainably Tanned Leather
+ Other sustainable textiles from the Higg Material Sustainability Index (MSI)
+ Recycled metal and low-impact processing for hardware
We are also committed to exploring and integrating additional criteria, such as Oeko-Tek Standard 100 and Bluesign certifications for sustainability in textile manufacturing.
Because cotton is so key to our denim-centric collections, championing the use of sustainable cotton is critical to our success in this journey. We are committed to sourcing 100% more sustainable cotton by 2025, and are proud to be partnering with the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) in an effort to get us closer to that goal.**
Additionally, we are partnering with our current suppliers, encouraging their use of certified sustainable materials while we experiment with new fabrics and applications to determine if they can play a part in our creation of more sustainable, beautiful collections. Each of our suppliers now has a list of criteria to ensure we are being as sustainable as possible with our projects together, and we are working with them to collect and track sustainability data so we can measure our collective progress over time.
