This brand creates 50% of their products in-house and close to their offices in Vernon, California. The remaining fashion pieces are made by environmentally responsible manufacturing partners in other parts of the United States, India, Mexico, Turkey, Pakistan, and Vietnam. This brand has been creating clothes that have been carbon-neutral since 2015; and currently they collaborate with the non-profit organization Climate Neutral, to authenticate and endorse their 100% carbon-neutral status. Reformation uses electricity offsets from 100% wind power suppliers and utilizes only Energy Star-Rated appliances in their offices. This brand also works together with Native Energy and Bonneville Environmental Foundation to replace and restore water resources around their factories and factory partners.
Furthermore, Reformation is currently also making great strides in progressively becoming a truly zero waste brand. Presently Reformation recycles or donates 75% of their textile scraps, and is hoping to push that specified percentage up to 85% in the near future. Their ultimate goal is to be 100% zero waste. This brand uses recycled paper hangers and reusable textile tote bags in their stores. And their exclusive use of either 100% compostable or 100% recycled LDPE garment bags/packaging,(that both use bio-based materials and break down completely after intended use) is clear evidence of their zero waste commitment.
