One way that Cord + Cobalt plans to help you shop with ease is providing a Sustainability Guide to all of our garments. We'll breakdown each item by tiers, one being the lowest level and three being the highest level in terms of sustainability. You'll find the sustainability marker and a link to our guide along with every product description, so you'll never have to wonder. We believe you should always be informed to make the best decision for you! We'll hustle and do the research, you have fun and shop! Whether you're looking for a step in the right direction or a leap into full-on sustainable, we've got your back!
+ Level One, ++ Level Two, +++ Level Three
+ Level One:
Deadstock fabrics and materials have already been produced and used by another designer, but now they are sitting around in a warehouse. These are the left-overs from their original manufacturing purpose, but instead of wasting these fabrics by throwing them in a landfill or through incineration, they are made available for purchase. Products made of these fabrics are limited-edition based on the fact that the material sourced will not be reproduced.
Recycled fabrics are innovative alternatives for materials that would otherwise be immediate waste. By giving these materials another "life" through another means, we are helping to delay or remove the step to the landfill.
++ Level Two:
Natural base items are ones made of natural fibers, but we cannot confirm that they are organic. They are at their core of-the-earth and biodegradable, making them renewable resources. This can include items that have any kind of treatment to them whether that be a finish, color, or blend.
+++ Level Three:
The creme-de-la-creme, it doesn't get more sustainable than this. For these products, to the best of our ability, we can confirm that the materials were grown organically, without pesticides, or have been treated in any way. All dyes are plant-based using flowers and herbs. All natural, all the time.
We'll be sure to let you Lovelies know if we ever make updates or changes to the Sustainability Guide! And as always, if you have any questions be sure to reach out to us! We are here for you!
