Sustainability

Our goal with Wild Apparel is to help make the world a better place, whilst leaving behind the smallest footprint!

Here is what we are doing to stay true to our eco goals! 

  • Almost ALL of our products are made with 100% Organic cotton! Organic is super soft, doesn't use any harmful chemicals or pesticides (because save the bees!) & uses far less water than its non- organic partner. 

  • We plant a tree with every product sold with our partners at One Tree Planted & The Last Of The Wild Places. This helps us off set our carbon footprint & help revive and restore ecosystems.

  • Our products are made in a facility that runs off 100% renewable energy and is carbon neutral. 

  • Wild Apparel Australia has our staff and production carbon offset through 'Our Trace'
  • The dye processing takes placed in a closed loop, water purification system which uses treatment ponds, sand filtration and reverse osmosis to convert the water waste into clean water.

  • Our products are made to order in small batches that are purposefully meant to sell out in order to reduce our waste!

  • Our style is simplistic and timeless.

  • Our garments are high-quality and durable, we encouraging only buying what you need. Our products are designed to be staples in your wardrobes! So you can get a million wears out of them :) 

  • Our shipping packaging is compostable & recyclable!

  • We ship using our partners at Sendle who are 100% Carbon Neutral delivery service.
