TEN TREES ARE BETTER THAN ONE
– GREEN WEEKS, NOT BLACK FRIDAY –
Hyper-consumption day is just around the corner: Black Friday. But commercialisation is definitely not positive for everyone – especially not for nature. Many people are already aware of this 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 not only be tied to a specific day. Instead, it should be the basic principe 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 celebrate our Green Weeks. Instead of discounts, we will plant additional 10 trees per order throughout the entire month of November. Not only that, we will continue to plant one tree per Essential we sell.
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.
SANVT X EDEN
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).Learn more
GREEN INSTEAD OF BLACK (FRIDAY)?
Yes, but not as a fad or a marketing tool. Many brands announce discounts weeks before Black Friday, only to position themselves as sustainable and environmentally friendly during the actual Black Friday day.
SANVT is different! We think, it is important to establish and maintain an eco-friendly lifestyle not only on one day, but the whole year.
CLIMATE CHANGE AFFECTS ALL OF US
Climate change and global warming is probably one of the most important issue of our time. That in mind, we believe that a ‘perfect’ essential should also be environmentally friendly. Our 3-step-approach to a 100% climate neutral and (more) environmentally friendly garment:
1. Calculate the CO2 footprint
2. Reduce the CO2 emissions
3. Offset to reach climate neutrality
Climate neutrality means that unavoidable CO2 emissions are offset or compensated by supporting certified climate protection projects.
Climate 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.Learn more
CLIMATE-FRIENDLY, ALL YEAR ROUND
Since SANVT was founded, we have produced our entire collection in a climate-neutral way. In order to achieve CO2 neutrality, we have analysed, minimised and offset the carbon footprint and production-related CO2 emissions of all our products.
Since February 2020, we have also been collaborating with Eden Projects.
SANVT COMES FROM ‘sanft’
(GERMAN FOR SOFT)
This is not only a reference to our high-quality, soft materials and perfect fit, but also stands for our guiding principle of everything we do: sustainability. As a growing company, our guiding principle is a soft and gentle approach to people and nature – in every single decision.
WE DO MORE
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.
