Sustainability isn’t just about recycling your water bottles, bringing your own cloth bag to the grocery store, and trying to cycle instead of taking the car. These are all good things, of course — every little bit counts, and it’s important for everyone to do what they can to help improve our environment and the health of our planet.

Working toward sustainability is a process. It’s not something that happens overnight, and it’s not magic! The process involves a series of steps; a set of guidelines that individuals and businesses can take toward developing and improving our actions. 


A Commitment to Continual Improvement


At Wearable Stories, we value sustainability as part of our culture. It is a cornerstone of what we believe and how we run our business. Our core values are:

  • Be Transparent
  • Be Ethical
  • Be Compassionate
  • Be Conscious
  • Be Sustainable



So how do we define sustainability? For us, it’s simple — sustainability is a natural part of doing business. We base our company and build our brand upon a solid foundation. This includes:


  • We create garments that you will want to wear for years to come. Quality materials and time-tested designs contribute to the lifespan of any particular piece. If it looks good and feels good, year after year, you don’t need to purchase replacements as often. This means less waste for the planet — and more savings in your pocketbook.


  • We source materials from sustainable origins. This means utilizing natural fabrics like cotton, wool, linen, and EcoVero that aren’t derived from oil or other synthetic sources. These types of textiles are more likely to last longer and stay in style. Additionally, they feel amazing on your skin! Natural fabrics let skin breathe and help you avoid many common issues with substances like polyester or rayon, which may cause itching or other irritation. Human-made textiles are also more likely to exacerbate sweating and don’t allow skin to stay cool. 



We have a friendly relationship with the talented producers who make our designs into reality, and we help oversee production to ensure that all workers spend their days in safe, fair facilities. These small-scale garment workshops are part of our commitment to fair labor practices as well as reducing our carbon footprint. 

With items like our REPURPOSED garments, we give old fabrics a new life. REPURPOSED takes discarded material and gives it a second chance as beautiful denim dresses and tops. This is just one way to help stop old fabric from going into a landfill and REPURPOSiNG it for something new.



We are always working on improving our processes, sourcing, and production — because after all, sustainability is an ongoing process! We hope you’ll join us in our mission to not only reduce negative impacts on our planet, but improve life in our communities by providing ethical workplaces, low-impact textiles, and longer-lasting garments you’ll love year after year ❤️
