we care. nous nous soucions.
Sustainability is a central part of sororité; in fact, we first started to curate sustainable vintage in 2010 and were the first vintage shop on Instagram to offer 100% biodegradable and recyclable packaging. By combining our investment in eco-friendly product packaging with vintage and reworked clothing, we are minimizing energy, waste, and water footprints.
All of our packaging is carefully selected and made from recyclable or biodegradable materials:
Bubble mailers made from 100% recycled content
Cardstock made from 100% recycled content
Natural jute twine that is 100% biodegradable
Shopping bags that are 100% biodegradable
Recyclable tissue paper made from both post-industrial and post-consumer recycled content
PRE-LOVED AND VINTAGE CLOTHING
By wearing pre-loved and vintage clothing, you are reducing your personal carbon footprint. This occurs in two ways:
You are reducing the amount of emissions and resources put into your wardrobe that impacts the environment
You are providing used garments with a home, rather than contributing to the 10.5 million (and growing) tons of textiles discarded to landfills each year 
THE REDEUX COLLECTION
All pieces in our Redeux Collection are given a new life — we take vintage pieces dating back to the 1940’s and rework them into one-of-a-kind garments. We use organic dye to create unique and wearable pieces, extending our sustainability promise to the environment.
All jewelry in our Atelier Sororité collection consists of 100% authentic vintage designer buttons, charms, and other pieces from authentic vintage designer garments that are often discarded or forgotten about. We personally rework and repurpose these pieces into jewelry in our studio, giving them new life and creating high quality, one-of-a-kind jewelry.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
The packaging and fast fashion industries are some of the most polluting industries in the world. Knowledge is power, so here are a few statistics on the global impacts of fast fashion and product packaging:
Garment manufacturing causes about 20% of industrial water pollution 
It takes 2,700 liters of water to produce a single cotton shirt, which is enough water for one person to drink for 2.5 years 
32% of the 78 million tons of plastic packaging produced annually is left to flow into our oceans 
Of the 14.68 million tons of plastic packaging generated in the United States in 2015, 68.6% of it was landfilled
