LOW IMPACT PROJECT
Longevity has always been at the core of our brand identity. In 2019 we decided to go all in to reduce our footprint on the planet. Going low impact is challenging and there are no clear answers. Progress is our priority. We want to be part of a movement for change and share our journey as we continue to make smarter choices every day.
DID YOU KNOW?
The textile industry employs more than 3 billion people worldwide. But for all the growth it generates, the industry also generates considerable waste. For every 5 garments produced, the equivalent of 3 end up in a landfill or is incinerated each year. Globally we produce 13 million tons(*) of textile waste each year, 95% of which could be reused or recycled. Reports show we are headed in the wrong direction with these numbers expected to double in the next decade. This is unless we start doing things differently, and start viewing problems as opportunities for change(*).
WHY LOW IMPACT?
Since the beginning of our company’s history, the focus has been to create high quality products made to last through seasons and trends. At the core of all Tom Wood collections is a commitment to minimise the environmental impact. From the first signet ring in 2013 to our seasonal ready-to-wear collections, every product is made with functionality and longevity in mind. We wish for our products to be cherished and have a long lifespan.
