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’ve added scannable QR codes onto our PANGAIA care labels that unlock a bespoke digital platform that shows you the journey of your product. Think of it like a digital passport that unlocks everything you’d need to know about your product lifecycle—from how it’s made, to its journey from us to you, aftercare tips, your direct environmental impact savings and more. The digital passports will bring together all product-specific data into one place available any time at the click of a button.

Here’s how to do it:

1

Scan the QR code inside the care label

2

Unlock your product’s unique PANGAIA Digital Passport

3

Learn about the product lifestyle, how it’s made, environmental impact, care tips and more

4

Check back whenever you need

We’ve partnered with EON to create our QR digital passports to help accelerate a move towards greater transparency, traceability and circularity in the industry. Powered by EON, the digital passports bring to life each garment’s unique journey from its origin to purchase, offering a personalised experience in data around traceability and sustainability right at your fingertips in a fun and interactive way.

As PANGAIA is still at the start of its own circularity journey, our digital passports will bridge the gap as we continue to explore circular solutions. Product digitization is fundamental to driving industry change and accelerating an Earth Positive future—one which gives back more than it takes. Throughout 2021,we’ll be adding digital passports across new and existing product categories, with new lines being added on a bi-monthly basis.

Our current Upcycling Projects

We collaborated with Bristol-based collective WEAREHAIRYPEOPLE on our first ever upcycling project, which launched Boxing Day 2020. We re-collaborated in April 2021, on a Kids collection.

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. We are working with our manufacturers on a recycling project. We can’t wait to tell you more about these!

We partnered with artist Amber Vittoria on an upcycled capsule collection. The capsule features three bespoke artworks (Not Only March, The Pattern Of Growth and The Journey Forwards) created in honor of International Women's Day and printed on t-shirts from previous collections. These designs were created to celebrate women far beyond Women’s History Month, while 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Choose Love, an organization supporting refugees and displaced people.
