How Sustainable Is Etica?

Ética is an American sustainable womenswear brand that has been certified to be environmentally friendly by various accredited organizations. Among these reputable agencies are: OEKO-TEX Standard 100, WRAP, Bluesign, Cradle to Cradle™,  and GOTS.

Ética is also especially known for their eco-friendly denim products and is at the forefront of sustainable denim design.  Ética fully embraces sustainable production and sourcing methods while also offering stylish and modern designs. Ética uses innovative technologies to diminish waste, water and energy consumption. Comparatively to industry standards, Ética uses 90% less water, 63% less energy, and 70% less chemicals than traditional apparel brands. Ética achieves these results by using market-leading equipment, advanced wash and dyeing techniques, and sustainable sourcing practices. This brand utilizes minimal impact textiles such as: refibra tencel, organic cotton, upcycled faux furs and recycled cotton; in addition to using only liquid indigo (rather than powder) for their denim fabrics, which largely lessen both water and chemical usage, as well as not creating any waste water or water pollution at all.  

Ética utilizes circular sourcing as often as possible in order to prevent landfill waste and to pursue their drive to continually become more sustainable. This brand implements solely biodegradable tags, labels, and packaging that are also composed entirely from recycled materials. Ética’s products also all became 100% free of Micro-Plastics in 2021, thus protecting soil health, water ways, and the communities of both manufacturing workers and customers.

Ética is also a member of The Better Cotton Initiative™ as well as a supporter of One Tree Planted, a nonprofit organization that centers around global reforestation. Ética plants one tree with every purchase made on their online store.
