A perfect fit
for the planet

Did you know that in America, the volume of clothing being sent to landfills has doubled in the last 20 years, from 7 million to 14 million tons? What about the fact that nearly 20% of global wastewater is produced by the fashion industry?  Yeah, these stats make us sad and angry too.

At Hemster we’re developing processes and initiatives to help facilitate environmental changes. Sometimes it’s through a large brand initiative, other times it’s as easy as donating to FabScraps or utilizing recycled and renewable materials for shipping.

We’re always looking for new ways to lower our carbon footprint, or “fitprint” as we like to call it!

Keeping garments
out of landfills

Many returned garments have damages that prevent them from being restocked. Where most brands would send these garments to landfills, our partners have the option of using our bulk repair portal to bring their garments back up to quality standards.

Extending your garment’s lifecycle with virtual repairs

Textiles can take up to 200+ years to decompose in landfills. Before tossing a garment in need of repair, try sending it to us! We’ll give it a new life and the planet will thank you.
