Sustainability at Rotholz: A Good Start for a Better Future
At Rotholz, sustainability is at the core of our brand values. We believe that taking care of the environment, ensuring fair labor practices, and promoting animal welfare are essential in creating a better future for all. With our commitment to these principles, Rotholz has been rated as ‘Good’ overall in terms of sustainability.
Environment Rating: It’s a Start
Rotholz is dedicated to using eco-friendly materials in our production processes. We have incorporated a medium proportion of organic cotton, reducing the use of harmful chemicals, water, and wastewater in the production of our garments. While we are proud of our efforts in using sustainable materials, there is room for improvement in minimizing textile waste and packaging. We are constantly exploring innovative solutions to reduce our environmental footprint and embrace a circular economy.
Labour Rating: It’s a Start
At Rotholz, we believe in fair and ethical labor practices. Our garments’ final stage of production takes place in the European Union, a region known for its stringent labor laws. This ensures that our manufacturing processes align with international labor standards. While we trace most of our supply chain and conduct audits, we acknowledge the need for further improvement. We are committed to ensuring the payment of a living wage in our supply chain and will continue to work towards promoting transparent and responsible practices.
Animal Rating: Good
Animal welfare is a top priority for us at Rotholz. We do not use fur, leather, down, exotic animal skin, exotic animal hair, or angora in any of our products. We are proud to state that we source our wool from non-mulesed sheep, emphasizing our commitment to cruelty-free practices. Our animal rating of ‘Good’ reflects our dedication to ensuring that no harm is caused to animals through our operations.
A Holistic Approach
While we acknowledge that there is still work to be done, we are committed to improving our sustainability practices across all aspects of our business. We understand that sustainability is a journey, and we are determined to make consistent progress in every area.
The environmental, labor, and animal ratings provide us with valuable insights into our current performance, as well as areas where we can make a positive impact. We actively seek feedback from our customers, partners, and industry experts to drive continuous improvement and innovation.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond mere compliance. We see it as an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the world. By creating beautiful and sustainable fashion, we aim to inspire others to embrace a more conscious lifestyle.
The Road Ahead
