Ethical & Sustainability

Catori Clothing is committed to ethically printing all our items in the USA and ensuring compliance throughout the entire supply chain. We use a range of materials sourced from locations such as the Dominican Republic and Pakistan which is then shipped to LA for completion. 

We require -
✔ High sustainability requirements from all our suppliers.
✔ International certifications to ensure items are ethically produced.
✔ On-location inspections for all our suppliers.

MAKE AN ORDER = PLANT A TREE

 

As of October 2021 when you make an order with Catori we plant a tree with Ecologi who partners with The Eden Reforestation Projects to plant millions of trees around the world each month. You can follow our forest and see your very own tree get planted in real time here - https://ecologi.com/catori

 

SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING

We're transitioning to 100% home and commercial compostable mailers made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable and PLA which is made up from items such as corn and straw.
Best of all they're non-toxic!
Our mailer bags are certified by leading authorities worldwide and include meeting the European standard EN13432, Australian AS-5810 as well as the United States standard ASTM D 6400.

Our mailer bags are certified to break down within 90 days in a commercial compost and 180 days in domestic compost conditions including farm/worm compost. After they've been broken down they leave no toxic or harmful residues. This will be a staged rollout so keep a lookout for our new look packaging from March 2021!

DEMAND-DRIVEN PRODUCTION

The fashion industry has an extremely large environmental impact and is one of the largest polluting industries in the world. We want to do our part by making our environmental impact as low as possible and have chosen for demand-driven production to pave the way for this change. Most of our products are produced on-demand once an order is placed to avoid excess production ending up in landfill and reducing our carbon footprint. We hope to be able to achieve a zero waste future. 

SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSPARENCY

We work with a range of talented individuals who are part of the process in getting your items to your door. We're currently working on tracing all of our tier 1 suppliers including greater visibility into certifications and approvals.
