Reducing Waste Streams

EMREN scrutinises our waste streams during design, production and shipping.

We believe business can and should be done with low waste in mind by supporting recycled, plastic free and local suppliers and waste mindful services. 

How EMREN Addresses Waste Streams

Sourcing Material

Requesting no plastic packaging from suppliers

Reusing or recycling all soft plastics received

Reusing or recycling all paper and cardboard

Sourcing, milling and dying fabric locally to reduce carbon emissions


Small batch production reduces chance of leftover stock when design updates are made

Collecting all unused fabric and trim scraps to be sent for fabric recycling through Upparel, Australia or Upcycle 4 Better

Employing highly skilled production team to minimise errors and maximise lifespan of our period pants


Using recycled card boxes, paper based tape and compostable mailing labels

We do not use compostable mailers as they are virgin materials, need composting facilities, have a short shelf life and often are incorrectly disposed of


Plain colour print created by fibre reactive dyes

Using majority natural fibres, which will breakdown faster at end of life

Using recycled materials for required synthetic waterproofing

Quality that lasts. See our cotton supplier - Australian Super Cotton

Did you know?

Many big businesses who manufacture offshore receive every garment in a seperate plastic bag? So it arrived to you in a compostable or recycled box - but how did it arrive to them? Go on and ask!

The colouring process for fibers usually involves two or three steps- bleaching, dying and printing. These are energy, water and chemical intensive. Sustainable options around the colour of your garments are low-impact, natural/eco dyes or naturally pigmented fibers. How are your clothes dyed? Is the cute print worth it? Let's investigate the human and environmental impact of our choices.
