Sustainability

 
Since high quality garments and a positive impact on the environment are our main focus, we decided to choose Stanley/Stella as our supplier for all our products.

 

Stanley/Stella

The goal founder Jean Chabert is aiming for with Stanley/Stella, is to change the perception of the textile industry. To offer products that respect people, the environment and customers. To produce more authentic and more responsible clothes that you are proud to wear and sell. Pieces that initiate change in the textile industry, made in a more humane, ethical and ecological way.

Manufacturers

The Stanley/Stella manufacturers are carefully selected based on the quality of their know-how, their production, their great respect for the working conditions of the employees and their total commitment to the values of Stanley/Stella. They work with only 7 factories, in order to maintain a privileged relationship. Their 19 local employees based in Dhaka work together with them every day to source only the best raw materials, grown or produced in ways that do not harm people, animals or the environment.

Packaging

Our packaging is 100% sustainable. We don't use any plastic inside our shipping boxes and even our package tape is 100% made of recycled materials.

 

  Shipping

For sure, also the shipping is 100% sustainable at Treesteem. We ship all our product with DHL "GoGreen". As part of the "GoGreen" environmental protection program, the greenhouse gases produced during transport are offset by climate protection projects. The greenhouse gases generated during transport are determined using a method based on the principles of the "GHG Protocol for Products". 

 

12 trees per product sold

For every product sold in our store, we initiate the planting of 12 mangrove trees by donating to Eden Reforestation Projects.
This is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration.

So far they have already planted over 360 million trees in 8 different countries with the goal to plant over 500 million trees each year by the year 2025.

We will do everything in our hands to give them as much support as possible by making the Treesteem community become big and spreading our message all around the world.

 

Together we make a difference!
