"More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year. Plastic takes a minimum of 400 years to degrade in the water." - Plastic Oceans
337 BRAND is excited to shift towards sustainability in the collections ahead. We are striving to go green and do our part to protect the planet we live in. By sourcing sustainable fabric which includes natural and recycled fibers, there is a lower environmental impact in the manufacturing process. Recycled Polyester is made up of existing plastic bottles that are discarded every day. Rather than ending up in landfills or the ocean, the plastic bottles are recycled and transformed into Recycled Polyester fiber. Not to mention, our sustainable fabrics are sourced from mills and distributors in USA and Canada. Our products are produced with domestic factories supporting American businesses. We are proud to say, 337 BRAND is made in the USA.
As a brand, we aim to only use sustainable packaging. This includes recycled paper or recycled plastic and less unnecessary add-ons. Our mission is to eventually eliminate all plastic used in the packaging.
We are happy to announce the launch of One Tree Planted x 337 BRAND. One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Vermont that focuses on global reforestation. We are providing customers the option to plant one tree for one dollar at checkout. Currently, any donations will be used for tree planting efforts in North America. One Tree Planted will keep contributors in the loop as their donations are in progress. Each individual will receive photos, project reports and a tax receipt over a period of time.
Trees help reduce the effect of climate change (which we believe in). It is unfortunate we lose about 46-58 thousand square miles of forest every year. Together we can make a positive impact on the world we live in but first, be the change. To learn more about One Tree Planted, visit their website at www.onetreeplanted.org.
In addition, we have joined the Shop Small community founded by American Express in supporting Small Business Saturday®. This nationwide movement is dedicated to celebrating all kinds of small businesses every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It has become a holiday tradition where shoppers, business owners and organizations come together to Shop Small during the festive season.
337 BRAND is aiming to reduce our carbon footprint in the fashion industry. Join us in this green movement in keeping the earth clean and we will promise to always design timeless pieces you will live in all year round.
