Sustainability at Dress Cozy

At Dress Cozy, sustainability is a commitment
to a better future. Our holistic approach encompasses environmental, economic,
and social aspects, ensuring that every step we take in our operations benefits
both people and the planet. We understand the importance of preserving the
natural beauty around us, and we're dedicated to minimizing our environmental
footprint while supporting female artisans.


We’re constantly improving our sustainable practices
that are present in each step of our production process.

Sourcing of Materials

Our journey towards sustainability begins with the careful selection of materials. We partner with suppliers who share our values, sourcing materials such as organic cotton and viscose that are free from harmful pesticides and naturally colored cotton that requires fewer chemicals for dyeing. These eco-friendly practices not only reduce
environmental impact but also ensure that our fabrics are safe and comfortable
for you to wear. Our partners uphold strong ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) practices, continually seeking more sustainable options to support our mission.

Handmade Production

Production at Dress Cozy is a testament to our commitment to ethical manufacturing. Our garments are 100% handcrafted by skilled female artisans in Brazil, many of whom are mothers and primary providers for their families. We ensure these women are compensated fairly, recognizing their invaluable contribution to our brand's success. By producing in small batches and reusing fabric scraps to create blankets for those in need, we minimize waste and support underprivileged communities, turning potential waste into warmth and comfort.

Net-Zero Freight

Sustainable shipping is a crucial component of our operations. We collaborate with freight forwarding companies dedicated to achieving a Net Zero economy, minimizing the environmental impact of their logistics. By producing and shipping in small batches, we reduce our carbon footprint, ensuring that our beautiful designs reach you in the most
eco-friendly way possible. This commitment extends our sustainability efforts beyond production, reflecting our holistic approach.

Commercialization & Delivery

Our focus on digital sales not only allows us to reach a wider audience but also reduces the need for physical store footprints, aligning with our sustainability goals. When it comes to packaging, we prioritize eco-friendly solutions. We use recyclable boxes, water tapes, and bags to ensure that your Dress Cozy purchase arrives safely and sustainably. This approach underscores our commitment to reducing waste at every step of the customer journey.

Recycling and Upcycling

We believe in giving our products a second life. Our recycling program encourages customers to return their well-loved Dress Cozy outfits, offering a $15 discount on their next purchase as a thank you. Items in good condition are donated, while others are upcycled into new products like blankets. This initiative not only reduces waste but also supports those in need, making it a win-win for the environment and our community.

Social and Economic Impact

Our dedication to fair wages and worker support is at the heart of Dress Cozy. We ensure that our artisans are compensated fairly and provide additional support when needed, particularly in times of crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic. Our production helps keep ateliers open year-round, supporting local economies and providing stability to families.

Reforestation Efforts

For every garment we produce, we plant a tree in the Amazon Rainforest through our partnership with One Tree Planted. This initiative is our way of giving back to the planet and combating deforestation.
By supporting reforestation efforts, we contribute to the health of our planet and help ensure a greener future for generations to come. It's a small step with a big impact, reflecting our commitment to sustainability.

We regularly evaluate our processes, explore alternative materials, and seek innovative solutions to reduce our environmental impact. This dedication to continuous improvement ensures that we not only maintain our current standards but also push the boundaries of what's possible in sustainable fashion. We are proud of what we've achieved so far, but we know there is always more we can do.
