As climate leaders and organizers wrap up the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, we are left with the hope that the fashion industry can help contribute in reducing the industry's immense environmental impact to global CO2 emissions and environmental strain.
1. The COP shared a new draft of the Paris Agreement (here).
2. There is now an agreement to review emissions every five years.
3. Gabriela Hearst and Stella McCartney attended the summit on behalf of the global fashion community.
4. They also agreed to extend the goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
5. It was announced that there will be a "zero-emission" future without fossil fuels by 2100.

1. Quality, we build clothes that are meant to last season after season, not discarded.
2. Use what we have, we source materials and fabrics from the earth in addition to fabrics that have already been produced, limiting the strain and carbon footprint of manufacturing.
3. Look to nature, we firmly believe in the power of nature and source responsible natural fibers such as Merino wool, linen, cashmere from high-quality sources such as mill partner, Holland & Sherry.
(Some of our seasonal deadstock favorites).
4. Never discard, we find innovative ways to upcycle and use whatever waste we create. Did you see our bi-color patchwork shorts?
(Our Bi-Color GEORGIE shorts made from excess blue and black Merino wool fabric).
