Wearwell’s 2022 Impact Report

What you buy matters. We believe that wearwell's role in changing the fashion industry is directly tied to making it easier for people to support the causes they care about through their purchases.

From day one, every brand partner that we source from has been vetted for specific workers' rights and environmental impact criteria. Today, we’re partnered with nearly 50 brands that meet the very highest standards. 

We’re serious about those standards

When it comes to workers’ rights, this can mean fair and/or living wages, access to a safe and secure work environment, the right to unionize, access to healthcare, and additional support such as education, microloans, or health services for employees and/or their children. 

And when we’re talking about the environment, we mean minimizing impact across the supply chain through things like use of: organic materials, deadstock fabrics, zero waste processes, carbon-neutral factories, nontoxic and low impact dyes, circular processes, low or no water, and salvaged or upcycled materials.

What this means for you

As sustainability becomes even buzzier, it’s hard to know which brands you can trust and which are greenwashing. But with wearwell, you know that:  

100% of our brand partners produce ethically. 
100% of our brand partners use environmentally responsible materials and processes. 
46% of our brand partners even give back to their communities in additional ways beyond their ethical and sustainable production. 

Positive impact in the making of every piece we sell is a must, and so is ensuring that wearwell contributes to a more equitable society. Today, our brand partners are: 

90% women-owned
15% Black-owned 
15% owned by a non-Black person of color

Looking ahead 

Our work here is never done. As wearwell grows, we’ll continue to evaluate the brands that we work with, shift and improve where needed, and identify what we can do to ensure that our community’s purchases make the greatest positive impact possible. Because of this, we publish this information and update you on our impact at least once a year.
