Environmental + Social Initiatives

We’re pleased to partner with fabric mills and workshops that share our reverence for environmental and social sustainability, and we appreciate the effort and ingenuity they put into minimizing the impact that textile production has on the planet and their own workers. We team up with companies that meet our high standards and work with them to continually improve our practices and their practices. From an environmental standpoint, Coyuchi looks at the full life of a product—from the farm where the fiber is produced to what happens to the product when it reaches the end of its life. The two areas where we can have the biggest impact are on the farm or ranch where the fiber is produced, and how the end product is produced. To address these, we use only organic cotton and other natural fibers, and we actively work with industry partners to ensure environmental performance at our production facilities.
