We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it. We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Kari Traa Women's Agnes Knit - Sage has the following sustainability attributes...
The way that we look after our clothes once we take them home can make a big impact, and this includes how often we wash them. Skipping just one out of ten washes leads to a reduction in total toxicity, lower CO2 emissions, and the release of fewer microplastics. Odour control technologies like POLYGIENE and naturally odour resistant fabrics like merino wool can help to reduce the number of times that we wash a garment by keeping it fresher for longer, in turn making it last longer.
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
Merino wool is a high-performing natural fibre that will biodegrade at the end of its lifecycle, however, sheep can often be subjected to inhumane practices like mulesing if unmonitored. ZQ is the most widely established merino wool certification standard, and follows five principles: the best animal welfare, environmental integrity, social responsibility, fibre quality and traceability standards. Sheep must graze free range, be given their Five Freedoms (freedom from hunger and thirst; from discomfort; from pain, injury or disease; to express normal behaviour; and from fear and distress) and are not subject to mulesing. Note that not all responsibly sourced merino will be ZQ certified.

This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
