We all know that the fashion industry has a long way to go when it comes to sustainability and doing our part to clean up our world. We are very mindful of this, and from our offices to our packaging, we're taking steps to do our part.
Internally, we’ve formed a Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, which meets monthly to discuss how we can help the company and fellow employees cut down on waste in our offices and donate our time to charitable causes.The committee is comprised of employees who are passionate about corporate sustainability and giving back to the community.
To become more environmentally friendly, we’ve reduced our use of single use plastics in our corporate office. Each of our employees received a #showup mug, reusable water bottle, tote bag and silverware.
The Corporate Social Responsibility Committee also organizes and participates in charitable activities. The team came together to donate their time with our local Dress for Success chapter. We donated over 200 pairs of shoes, and spent the day organizing donations. We’ve also made our Fit Shop in Grand Central Terminal a drop-off site for Dress for Success donations.
For the 2019 holiday season, the CSR committee organized a coat donation in the office for the Jersey Cares organization. The coat drive ran through November and December, and the coats were donated to men, women, and children in New Jersey who were in need of a little extra warmth this season.
Stay tuned for the other initiatives we have in the works!
