- step by step to climate-neutrality -
The commercialisation of the (fast) fashion industry is definitely not positive for everyone – especially not for nature. Many people are already aware of this problem and are acting according to the principle of less being more. However, those who do not want to fully renounce consumption can turn their purchasing power into a positive…
We think that mindful shopping should be the basic principle behind buying (and selling) throughout the whole year. At SANVT, we’re still not perfect, but we try to be as sustainable as possible in every step of our production (and selling) process.
That’s why we plant one tree for every essential we sell. And we do even more…
At SANVT, we plant trees together with Eden Projects.
Eden Projects, in collaboration with local villagers in Nepal, Indonesia, Madagascar, Haiti, Mozambique and Kenya, has already planted millions of trees in recent years.
Eden Projects’ reforestation initiatives have two overarching goals: Restore healthy forests and reduce extreme poverty at the same time.
Together with Eden Projects, we want to have a positive impact on the environment while supporting some of the poorest regions in the world. In collaboration with Eden Projects, we plant one tree for every SANVT Essential produced and sold. Because trees are the most effective CO2 absorbers.
By the way: here you can see how many trees we have already planted (and that’s a lot).
From time to time we do even more than planting one tree per garment. For example – instead of Black Friday 2021 – we celebrated Green Weeks, planting additional 10 trees per order. This resulted in more than 10,000 extra trees.
Besides our tree-planting promise with Eden Projects we collaborate with ClimatePartner to ensure carbon neutral production processes.
Carbon neutrality (also known as Climate neutrality) means that unavoidable CO2 emissions are offset or compensated by supporting certified climate protection projects.
Carbon neutral products therefore offer you the opportunity to make an active contribution to climate protection. By buying or using CO2-neutral products, you directly support a corresponding climate protection project.
Climate change and global warming are the most important issues of our time. That in mind, we believe that a ‘perfect’ essential should be as environmentally friendly as possible. Our 3-step-approach to a 100% carbon neutral and (more) environmentally friendly garment:
1. Calculate the CO2 footprint
2. Reduce the CO2 emissions
3. Offset to reach carbon neutrality
We give an overview of the carbon footprint of each of our products. These inisghts can help to make (more) sustainable purchase decisions.
- (GERMAN FOR SOFT) -
Our name is not only a reference to high-quality and soft materials, but also stands for our guiding principle of everything we do: sustainability. As a growing company, a soft and gentle approach to people and nature is in the center of everything we do.
Since SANVT was founded, we have produced our collection in a carbon-neutral way. Every single essential is therefore climate neutral.
We develop extra durable materials made exclusively from biodegradable fibres (e.g. 100 percent cotton). The dyeing of the products is done without harmful additives and the waste water is recycled.
We work exclusively with certified production partners who minimise negative impacts on nature and the environment. We minimise our transport routes, because all our suppliers are located in close proximity to each other. Only A or B energy efficient machines are used in our factories.
Our packaging is 100% plastic-free. At SANVT we offer you durable essentials with prices that reflect a fair and ethical production. Our range of sizes is also designed to enable you to consume fashion in a sustainable way.
