SUSTAINABILITY


Our goal is to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

SUSTINABILITY POINTS:

1) Pearce does not mass produce. The micro collections are designed and released throughout the seasons and not only twice a year, bringing new, special pieces into your life more often and eliminating potential surplus. Small production allows quality control be performed multiple times, eliminating bad batches and pieces that can't go to market. We stay focused on a made to order model for our customer.

2) Pearce uses only natural fabrics. Currently, 84% of unwanted clothing ends up in landfills (Newsweek). It only takes natural fabrics 1-5 months to decompose (W24). Polyester may take anywhere from 20 to 200 years to decompose (goodonyou.eco).  We only source the finest silk chiffon, silk georgette, and organic cotton for our pieces. Our garment tags are printed on 100% recycled organic cotton. Our hangtags are paper, not plastic. Our shipping materials are 100% recycled cardboard, hand stamped. Pearce tote bags are made from scrap fabric from organic cotton twill, screenprinted with twill handles.

3) Pearce is zero waste. Clothing production can be wasteful. We donate 100% of our scrap fabrics to local Philadelphia charter school classrooms. The school we've worked with for past 2 years is Independence Charter School West.

4) Gender Equality: Pearce is made for humans. Pearce is all-inclusive design and does not discriminate based on any gender, race, body type, etc. Through our visual messaging via our online presence, we aim to foster a community acceptance and equality for all. Increased scope of sizing is something we are always working towards.
