The Zero Waste Initiative supports Circular Fashion by reducing textile waste and maximizing the lifespan of clothing and textiles.

One Warm Coat offers an environmentally conscious solution to retailers and manufacturers with overstock, irregular, and sample outerwear that cannot be sold. The Zero Waste Initiative provides an eco-friendly alternative to keep textiles out of landfills while providing warmth for children and adults in need.

What Brands Are Saying About the Zero Waste Initiative

At Joules, we respect the environment and see it as our responsibility to look after the world around us. We build-to-last and all our garments provide many years of use and can often be passed-on or handed-down. This is particularly relevant when some reports suggest that nearly two-thirds of clothing created by the retail industry overall end up in incinerators or landfill within a year of being produced. One Warm Coat’s Zero Waste Initiative is one of the ways Joules is working to reduce our impact and contribute to positive change. We’re proud to work with One Warm Coat to share warmth across the U.S.

The Lands’ End mission is to create a more comfortable world through programs that support sustainability, philanthropy and diversity and inclusion,” said Matt Trainor, senior vice president of brand marketing and creative. “Our philanthropic arm, the Lands’ End Comfort Fund, supports organizations that provide at least one of the 3 basic needs for human comfort – food, shelter, and safety. This ongoing partnership with One Warm Coat is not only an ideal match for our mission, but also our unparalleled outerwear product assortment. We are thrilled to continue to grow this relationship and serve our community.
