Their partnership with EcologiĀ® and Eden Forest Project is helping to restore healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year

Cloth & Co. garments are made with 100% recyclable and biodegradable natural fibers. They have no hardware, buttons, or zips and the upcoming collection will use Roica V550 in the rib or stretch component which is a significant development, having achieved a Gold Material Health Certificate from Cradle-to-Cradle Product Innovation Institute, as well as Hohenstein Environment Compatibility Certification, proving it is able to break down without releasing harmful substances into the environment at end of life. Cloth & Co. has partnered with UpparelĀ® where customers can send all unwanted textile products to be donated to charity, upcycled, or recycled and the brand will spot the fee with the equivalent value of a Cloth & Co gift voucher

Cloth & Co. has partnered with EcologiĀ® to reduce its environmental impact. For every purchase you make on their site, 1 tree gets planted! Planting trees is broadly known for reducing environmental impact, but it also has a significant impact on communities that are directly affected by deforestation. Due to the unsustainable relationship between the land and people, communities suffering from deforestation are often the same as those living in extreme poverty

Cloth & Co. in association with a social enterprise partner named Artisans of Fashion produces limited capsule collections of hand-crafted and finished products working with small artisan groups and communities. Their signature linen scarves are produced on traditional handlooms by weavers in Nepal, their handmade knits are produced with handspun, rain-fed Kala cotton by women knitters in the Himalayas. Their capsule collections of hand-loomed linen are produced in a small, family run stitching unit in Delhi

Cloth & Co. has built a community with a specific focus on women at the heart center of their business. Cloth & Co. has had a long-standing partnership with SEWA Shram Shakti Foundation in Delhi which was founded to support victims of human trafficking & domestic violence, mainly women and children. They provide a safe environment for these victims to live, training to learn new skills and work in ongoing and dignified employment. Another important partner is Peoli in the Himalayas through which they provide ongoing work for their hand-knit collection as well as an annual donation of 10% of all sales of the knits which are sent towards emergency and crisis relief funds

Women's empowerment is one of Cloth & Co. founding values and as an all-women business, this remains at the heart of their brand. With over 90% of the working people being women, their partner organizations (Peoli, SEWA Shram Shakti Foundation & Women Fiber to Fashion) provide employment, training, welfare, and women's health services for those who are underprivileged or at-risk. Cloth&Co is also founded and owned by women
