SILLS + CO SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES
Delivering enduring, considered luxury products to our customers, is at the heart of what Sills + Co do. Making quality garments to be enjoyed well beyond a season is core to our business and the right choice for our planet. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure alignment with our values.
Environmental issues in the fashion industry are complicated and far reaching. At Sills + Co, we know we cannot change everything overnight, but our commitment is to Evolve Responsibly towards becoming a fair, regenerative and sustainable business.
Evolving Responsibility Cornerstones are our company values, and outline our goals and achievements for a sustainable business. These are at the heart of every decision we make, and are under constant review, ensuring we are satisfying best practice.
We are dedicated to constantly evolve as a business, ensuring we are looking at every part of our processes to help reduce waste and emissions through our entire supply chain. Considered materials, minimal waste, and reducing energy usage are our key considerations. Click for more info
