As stated by Patagonia, they are in the business of preserving our planet. Patagonia has promised to donate 1% of their total sales to the preservation of the environment. The creator of Patagonia was able to co-found the 1% for the Planet alliance because to this pledge.

Allbirds is a shoe and apparel company, that are completely carbon neutral. The aim, according to them, is to have a carbon footprint that is zero. With their supply chain, Allbirds wants to commit to emitting absolutely no carbon. When it comes to their own carbon emissions, they have promised to be completely transparent. In order for you, the customer, to fully understand the environmental impact of the product you purchased, Allbirds has started labelling its items with the amount of carbon that was first released in the production of that product. The business recently made an investment in a manufacturer of plant leather who can create a vegan alternative to leather made traditionally and leather made synthetically while also having a 40 times less carbon footprint.

A Good Business was established in 2019 with the goal of turning mindless consumption into deliberate choices. Since their inception, they have increased the range of daily climate-friendly products in their product line. Because they try to use carbon capture programmes like tree planting to offset all the carbon that was released during the product's creation, A Good Company refers to their products as climate positive. They desire carbon-neutral manufacturing for every single product. The world's first climate-positive notebook, for instance, is their waterproof stone notepad. They don't waste water, trees, or toxic chemicals while making their paper because it is made of stone rather than other materials. These phone cases are manufactured in Sweden from leftover organic linseed. Once you're done using it, you may send the phone cover back to A Good Company so they can disassemble it and utilise the components to make a new phone case for someone else. Since their items are completely biodegradable, you may also just throw them in your garden.

This isn’t all. There are hundreds of brands that are such more sustainable to use than your usual suppliers of clothes, shoes, or any item. Find out how you can do your bit.
