We recently announced that wearwell joined 1% for the Planet. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this global movement that is tackling the most pressing environmental issues.
What this means for you
Every time you shop with wearwell, you're already choosing clothing, accessories, secondhand, and home goods that meet the very highest sustainability standards, and now that we’ve joined 1% for the Planet, we'll also donate 1% of every sale to environmental causes that make the world a more sustainable place.
Why it’s important
We’ve always believed that your purchasing power matters most when there’s a positive impact in the making of what you buy. Since day one, we’ve built wearwell to partner with and promote brands that go above and beyond when it comes to ethics and sustainability.
This is why 100% of our brand partners pay their garment workers or artisans fairly and 100% of our brand partners mitigate their environmental impact through materials and manufacturing choices. (And ICYMI, 93% of our brands are women-owned, 16% are Black-owned, and another 16% are owned by an indigenous person or person of color.)
But the fashion industry has big problems and it’s going to take many solutions to clean it up. Because the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries, we decided that it was time for wearwell to take another step forward - beyond our ethical sourcing as we’ve always done - and begin ongoing donations to nonprofits working on the environmental problems that go beyond the fashion industry. We’re thrilled that our 1% commitment will contribute to the 1% for the Planet global movement’s impact.
