Positive Impact

March 06, 2020

Prana has been committed to crafting sustainable apparel for over 20 years - it’s part of their DNA. Since the beginning, they have been dedicated to making a fundamental change in the way clothing is made. By forging partnerships with organizations like Fair Trade, bluesign®, Textile Exchange, Responsible Down Standard, and The Renewal Workshop, they help to further this mission. 

While fundamental shifts in apparel manufacturing are vital, it may feel difficult to know how you can help make a positive impact. What’s the impact of changing one shirt from conventional cotton to organic? Or purchasing a single Fair Trade Certified™ piece? Let’s compare it to switching your light bulbs from standard to energy-efficient, or to turning off the faucet while you brush your teeth. As we’ve learned over time, even these small changes add up.

Prana encourages you to think about small changes you can make when you shop for clothing, like:

Consider buying rayon alternatives
Switch to organic cotton
Look for jackets treated with PFC free DWR

With every thoughtful purchasing decision we make, we lessen our impact on the environment. Our partnership with Prana allows all of us to make a positive impact and to continue our journey towards a circular economy.
