Have confidence that your clothing is making a difference.
As sustainability becomes buzzier, it’s hard to know which brands you can trust and which are greenwashing. We dig into the details of every brand we work with to understand the impact they are delivering on.
What you buy matters.
Nearly 80 million garment workers around the world make the clothing we wear. The majority of those garment workers are unfairly paid and work in unsafe conditions. Hot take: this is not okay.
On top of that, the fashion industry’s unsustainable environmental practices pollute waterways with toxic dyes, use materials that devastate our oceans, and create waste that can take anywhere from 20-200 years to decompose in a landfill.
We believe there's a better way
Wearwell is part of a movement that's building a more sustainable fashion industry, prioritizing workers' rights and minimizing environmental impact. We're committed to making it easier for more people to live sustainably and support brands that meet the highest standards.
Better standards for a better industry.
We choose to partner with brands making a positive impact in two distinct areas: workers’ rights and the environment.
Workers' Rights can include
fair and/or living wage,
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.
Environmental Impact Can Include
the use of organic materials,
zero waste processes,
carbon neutral factories, non-toxic and natural dyes,
circular or low water use, and
salvaged or upcycled materials.
When deciding which brands to partner with, we look at the brand’s self-reported information on workers’ rights and environmental sustainability as well as impact criteria from leading certifications such as: Fair Trade, GOTS Certified, BlueSign, OEKO-TEX Standard 100, and B Corp.

Our company values and where we're headed.
In addition to seeking impact in the making of every product we carry, we are committed to inclusivity in race, gender, sexual orientation, and bodies. Our values inform our decisions in hiring, sourcing, communication, and partnerships.
Racial and social justice
We are committed to building a business that is anti-racist and advocates for intersectional social justice. One of the most important ways we do this is by partnering with and supporting BIPOC-owned and women-owned brands that meet our sourcing criteria.
We believe that sustainable fashion should be inclusive of and available to all bodies. Today, we offer a range of sizes from XS-3X, and we are committed to continuing to add more sizes and fit options.
Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing
Our work here is never done. As wearwell grows, we’ll continue to evaluate the brands that we work with and identify what we can do to make sure that our members’ purchases make the greatest positive impact possible.
Our Commitment to 1% For the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global movement tackling our planet's most pressing environmental issues, certifying that at least 1% of sales from member companies, like wearwell, is donated annually to non-profits making the greatest impact for sustainability.
Every time you shop with wearwell, you're choosing products that meet the highest sustainability standards, and through our 1% for the Planet membership, we donate 1% of every sale to environmental organizations working hard to advance sustainability and conservation worldwide.
