We deeply care about sustainability and work actively on becoming as sustainable as possible internally but more importantly partner with great organizations that are doing the difference. For our Alba collection we made an active decision to not work with denim. The reason for that is its negative impact on our world due to its creation process with high amount of chemicals, thousands of liters of waters and energy consumption.
At MENNITI, we do not like words. We like actions. Therefore, we have partnered with One Tree Planted. For each product we sell, we plant a tree in Colombia.
Sustinere and its partners' reforestation project is in the Choco, Colombia, one of the world's most biodiverse areas, with more than 8,000 species of plants and 600 species of birds. In the 2000s, the Choco suffered 60% of the deforestation in Colombia, due to mining and logging.The location of the reforestation project is in the municipality of Tadó, in the department of the Chocó, which is the pacific region of Colombia. More specifically, the 5 village-areas in the municipality of Tadó where the project will take place are: Tapon, Corcobado, Angostura, Playa de Oro and Tabor
We recognize reforestation through analog forestry as a cross-sectoral solution to restore degraded areas, reverse biodiversity loss, sequestrate carbon and slow down global warming, decontaminate the soil and water, while also addressing conditions of poverty by including trees and plants that yield fruits and vegetables which will be sold to local markets. Groups of women entrepreneurs will be created, while benefits from the project will prioritize on vulnerable households. Specifically, the project will restore 100 hectares of forest that will benefit 100 families with fruit trees and medicine plants. The forest will absorb 15,000 tons of carbon, and we will create a group of 50 women entrepreneurs.
