CREATING AN IMPACT THAT MATTERS

The garment industry is a major contributor to global pollution, generating 10% of all human carbon emissions and consuming a substantial portion of the world’s water resources. However, at Un-Available, we are committed to transforming this narrative by fostering a planet-forward mindset through innovative initiatives.

Our Sustainability Report offers an insightful retrospective of our accomplishments from 2020 to May 2023. By showcasing our progress and ongoing initiatives, we provide an honest view of our journey towards sustainability goals.

We developed our own scoring system to identify the environmental impact of each process required to produce a garment

We sourced GOTS-certified fabrics and recycled fabrics to use for our clients' production

Our recycled is inspected and assessed by Global Recycled Standard and Recycled Claim Standard. 

We worked with our suppliers to source eco-friendly fabrics made from linen, hemp, bamboo, and coffee grounds.

WHAT WE ARE [PUSHING] FOR IN THE FUTURE

At Un-Available, our goal is to create a business model based on a circular economy, which aims to create value at every step of the production process. 

 

To achieve this, we will work with our suppliers to focus on the reusability of raw materials andproducts.

At UA, most of plastic waste results from supplier’s deliveries. While working with them to develop more eco-friendly solutions, we reuse the plastics bags for internal storage, from fabric, panels, to garments. After internal use, the plastic waste that is not broken and deteriorated is transported to a recycling facility.
