Sizing

True to size

Everyone has their goals in life, but what if the planet came together to work towards the same ones? This is the thinking behind the 17 Global Goals created by the United Nations to achieve a more sustainable world by 2030. With the power to end poverty, battle inequality and paralyse global warming, the goals will build a more responsible, just and peaceful future for everyone. Whether you pick the issue that is closest to your heart or get involved in all 17, join them in spreading the word.

When we think about mindful consumption, cost per use is a way of evaluating whether or not your purchase is sustainable or not. Asking questions like “will I use/wear this piece more than 30 times?” “Will I fix it when it breaks?” “When I’ve finished using it, will I extent the lifespan of the item by giving it to someone I know/charity?” All of these actions will decrease the overall carbon footprint of your purchase.

How do you work out the cost per use? Divide the price of the product by 30! We use 30 as this is the average amount of uses items are thought to have.

#TOGETHERBAND work with grassroots organisations such as ROKPA who manufacture #TOGETHERBANDs for the brand. ROKPA rescue women who were previously identified as being trafficked. Every artisan they employ through ROKPA are paid 45% higher than the national industry average.
