Discover the 4 pillars of our
eco-conscious initiative below:
ORGANIC OR RECYCLED FIBERS
SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT
Collections made of organic
or recycled fibers
ORGANIC COTTON: SOFT FOR YOU, SOFT FOR THE PLANET
Organic cotton is grown to have a lower impact on the environment and on workers’ health.
RECYCLED FIBERS: GIVE POLYESTER A NEW LIFE
Post-consumer pieces are melted and spun again into fibres, avoiding ending up in oceans or landfills.
On average, we recycle 36 tons of cardboard every year. We reuse all the cardboard boxes we receive to ship orders to the stores. Non-reusable boxes are compressed into bundles: each bundle weighs around 250 kg.
PLASTIC AND LARGE RECYCLABLE SHOPPING BAGS
Also made in Canada, our larger sized recycled plastic shopping bags are reusable and recyclable. The rest of clear plastic (including polybags, stretch film, etc.) is compressed too so we can recycle around 6 more tons annually.
FIND THESE SYMBOLS ON OUR PACKAGING
We sensitize our staff and business partners to make small ecological actions everyday.
MINIMIZING PAPER PRINTS
Our employees take online training modules to avoid printed manuals. We also reduce the production of posters in stores by using digital screens whenever possible.
REDUCE USAGE OF SINGLE USE ITEMS
At our head office, we distribute cardboard cups and plastic stir sticks for coffee or any other beverage. We encourage our staff to use the reusable mug we give them as a welcome gift.
Our current recycling policy incite the staff to follow the proper recycling rules.
TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT
We encourage our head office and distribution center employees to use public transport and carpooling.
INVOLVE OUR SUPPLY CHAIN
We work hand-in-hand with our suppliers to significantly reduce the use of plastic bags to package the goods delivered to our distribution center. We also make sure to return the lingerie hangers that are in good condition to them, which they reuse to send lingerie or swimsuits back. Since 2014, more than 7,800,000 hangers have been going back and forth!
Social and environmental commitment
We are committed and involved! Our contributions help many causes and also protect the environment.
Damaged or defective clothing is rarely destroyed or thrown away. la Vie en Rose always proceeds with generous donations.
Our annual bra collection raises funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation. The collected bras are given to a charity organization that protects the environment by helping to minimize the burial of clothing thanks to its sorting centers, but also by giving a second life to these pieces.
