HIGHLIGHTS 2021

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

Every season we set ourself goals to make Can Pep Rey a more ethical, responsible and transparent company. We are aware of the fashion industries impact on our planet and work hard from day-to- day to reduce our footprint and to create a brand of the future.

Responsibility for a change

We are proud of what we have managed to achieve over the past year, making Can Pep Rey a more transparent brand. Each year we find aspects within our company, and in our own lives where we see room for improvement. Reducing our carbon footprint and looking at options to improve the fashion industry as a whole. 

We hope that the clothes and products that we offer at Can Pep Rey inspire our community to be more responsible and conscious in their approach to consumption. We design with the longevity, quality and timelessness of each garment in mind. It is our responsibility to produce high quality garments with a transparent supply chain. We value our community, suppliers and customers who all contribute to making Can Pep Rey a forward thinking brand. It is our joy to create clothing that has little impact on the environment and a lifetime of wears. 

We are proud of all that we achieved in 2021 and are ready to work on many exciting projects for 2022.

PHILOSOPHY

Responsible sales

Consumerism is definitely a huge problem in our society. We want to promote conscious purchasing by not making massive discounts. For example, we participate in "Green Friday" and avoiding any association with Black Friday and the overconsumption it represents.

Focus on sustainable dyeing practices. Use the best technology (BAT) dyeing processes; saving chemicals, water and energy. 

Offer options for shipping. Giving the customer the option to receive orders in a reused box, to promote recycling. 

Helping customers understand the environmental impact and responsibility with climate change. 

Improve our in-house environmental impact.
