Audio Architect Apparel Environmental Policy

Environmental Policy

Audio Architect Apparel is fashion brand with sustainability as a core value. We recognise our responsibilities as a brand towards the environment, ecosystems and local communities.

We are fully aware of the devastating effects that the fashion industry can have on the environment. It's one of the worlds big polluters. Audio Architect Apparel is fully aware of this and we hate it! Like properly hate it! We are striving to change the impact we have on the environment. Here are the minimum standards that we expect anyone in our supply chain to adhere to:

  • All materials are sourced from natural, organic, renewable and recycled sources wherever possible.

  • Any animal derived materials used in our products (i.e. wool) are only sourced from purpose-bred animals.
  • Any animal that could or would be used in the production of any of our products is never from wild or endangered (CITES) species.
  • The farming and harvesting of natural fibre crops do not contribute to habitat loss or destruction.

  • Suppliers are asked to produce certification such as Oeko-tex and the Confidence in Textiles label to ensure the best possible practise is sought in any chemical and manufacturing process.

  • As a minimum, all factory discharges to the atmosphere, water and land are well within legal limits and have as minimal an impact on the local environment, people and ecosystems as possible.

  • A concerted effort is made to ensure water and energy is conserved wherever possible across our entire supply chain.

  • Every effort is made to reduce, reuse and recycle all waste wherever possible. Any hazardous wastes are appropriately segregated, stored and disposed of responsibly.

  • Sustainability and environmental performance are reviewed at least annually, to address any changes or additions to business activities and to promote continual improvement.
