As an apparel company, we recognize that the fashion industry and the need for better sustainability don’t always align. While the fashion industry has a long way to go, we have made it our main priority to promote less waste and more intentional design. Through the incremental changes we’ve made in our small company, we hope to make a collective impact.
We are committed to producing as consciously as possible. Designing with intent allows us to prioritize quality and sustainability to our customers. So as to not contribute to overproduction, Sage the Label’s product remains 90% sold at the beginning of the production cycle, leaving little waste for Mother Earth and leaving each garment guaranteed to a loving home.
As a strong advocate for supporting our community, Sage the Label donates any unforeseen overstock product to Keeps Boutique, a non-profit shopping experience for teen foster girls. By partnering with the Keeps Boutique program, we are able to help affirm the value and beauty of teenage girls in foster care through personalized shopping experiences.
At Sage the Label, a core principle of our mission statement is to do all things intentionally. As we are constantly learning and evolving, we must continue to act and react purposefully.
We strongly feel that every voice deserves to be heard, and we have implemented the below in order to create the change we wish to see in our community and thus, the world:
vendor partnerships, & freelancers.
We prioritize hiring those of whom are underrepresented and People of Color.
We routinely investigate our digital media and content to ensure that our language is inclusive, sensitive, and respectful to all.
We strongly support a hospitable and all inclusive workplace by breaking down racial and cultural barriers. We support and celebrate all voices on our team.
While there is so much more we can do collectively, we actively promote anti-racism. Today and everyday following is the time to put in the work together to eradicate institutionalized racism.
