UNDERPASS comes to life in the most challenging time for our planet. Therefore, being aware of the risk we’re facing, our streetwear vision embraces the idea of sustainability, and our goal is preserving and protecting the environment as much as possible. That’s why we decided to work in the most sustainable way, from the design to the packaging of our products.
We make sure our manufacturer is working ethically, thus free of child or forced labor, offering excellent working conditions. Moreover, our manufacturer rigorously follows international standard certificates for management such as ISO 9001,14001 and 45001.
Our manufacturer filters wastewater to standard level in order not to contaminate groundwater. Also where possible, solar power is harnessed using solar panels to provide green energy for various machinery.
Here at UNDERPASS we use only sustainably sourced or organic materials for our clothes, therefore having minimal impact on the environment. Our manufacturer’s materials are GOTS and/or GRS certified yarns, assuring the quality and provenience of the materials.
In order to reduce the amount of chemicals, the materials used throughout the entire production line, from production to packaging and shipping, are made from 100% recycled plastic or paper.
All these steps help in reducing and minimizing the unnecessary waste and further help achieve a greener planet whilst preventing a heavy carbon footprint. That’s why UNDERPASS donates a percentage of each collection’s profit to a sustainable non-profit association, firmly believing in the power of physical action to pursue our core goal of being a truly sustainable brand.
Our careful and ethical approach to streetwear clothing creates unique, stylish, and comfortable clothing without putting further stress on the environment.
