Welcome to our sustainability mission page. As we navigate the intricacies of becoming an eco-friendly company, we want to include you on our mission to improve and do right by our customers and Mother Earth. We aim to be transparent in our efforts to show you progress, not perfection. Please check back on this page throughout the year for updates and next steps. To share constructive ideas on how we can improve our sustainability, please email hello@malorepublic.com . 

In 2020, we joined 1% for the planet. 1% for the Planet is an international organization whose members contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes. Their mission is to "build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet."

We will update you on our giving and the non-profits we donate to via 1% for the planet. Our focus will be on water, climate, and land.

packaging

MALO republic had a big packaging goal for 2020 and we have achieved it!

We just made the investment and the switch to certified biodegradable + compostable mailer bags for all orders that don't require a cardboard box. In addition, all of our new products will now come in certified biodegradable + compostable garment bags. 

 

fabrics

In 2020, we introduced our first EcoActive line made from sustainable, certified, ECONYL® regenerated nylon. By 2023, we aim to use renewable, recycled sources for 85% of our textiles. Our Italian ECONYL® fabric is made from recycled plastic and nylon waste including fishing nets, plastic bottles, and other waste.
