Sustainability is our mission, our vision, and the foundation of our core values.

It’s the purpose of the MenoMieux community and the reason for everything we do. We believe in a sustainable future of fashion. If you’re not already searching for sustainable alternatives to today’s top clothing brands, here are some statistics that might get you on board.

The average consumer creates 70 pounds or 31.75 kilograms of clothing waste every year.

On a global scale, we create 13 million tons of textile waste every year.

Out of that 13 million tons, 95% could be reused or recycled.


At MenoMieux, our selected brands partner with artisans, craftsmen, and farmers to source sustainable materials with the lowest possible impact on the environment.


Each brand featured by MenoMieux must have transparent and traceable supply chain practices to allow us to trace and verify a company's environmental and labor standards.  We select brands that reduce resource usage through sustainable manufacturing processing.  Factors considered include resource use and waste management, energy use and carbon emissons, water usage & waste treatment, and other environmentally positive practices.

Fair Labor

We select brands that work with suppliers and factories that ensure workers are paid a living wage and provide fair, safe and healthy working conditions.


We encourage our brand partners to create end-of-use strategies and support recycling and resale programs to extend the product lifecycle.
