Circularity

Circularity is a journey and we’re just at the beginning of ours.

With each PANGAIA piece, we consider the environmental and social impacts across the entire life cycle.

By employing circular models, we want to minimise resource consumption, eliminate waste and extend the life of our products.

Here's how we hope to achieve this:

Re:think

We’re rethinking our product design, operational processes, industry standards and our partnerships to ensure we are working in the most circular way possible.

Re:duce

We’re improving our resource effectiveness, reducing our need for non-renewable energy and keeping our use of primary resources to a minimum.

Re:use

We want our products to find life after their first use and we're looking into how we can make that possible for you.

Re:vive

Borrowing from the Japanese Kintsugi concept of repairing broken pottery pieces, we value the art of upcycling.

Re:purpose

We’re studying how our products and materials can be used multiple times beyond their first design.

Re:cycle

We’re increasing our use of recycled raw materials to close the loop on our own product streams. Through this we turn our waste into feedstock for new products.

We’re collaborating with Bristol-based collective WEAREHAIRYPEOPLE on our first ever upcycling project, launching Boxing Day 2020.

We have also worked with the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) in refining our roadmap to circularity.

We have exciting projects in the works for next year. We are working with our manufacturers on a recycling project to repurpose waste materials and are partnering with Circular ID (EON) to facilitate the traceability of our garments. We can’t wait to tell you more about these!

Watch this space

This is just the start. We’re working on refining our roadmap to circularity, incorporating increased use of closed loop systems with our manufacturers and expanding into new circular business models to extend the life of our garments. Check back for our latest updates.
