OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
As a vintage clothing brand, sustainability is always at the core of what we do. We stand against fast fashion. We stand against millions of tons clothing going to garbage each year. For a greener and more livable world, we want to stop throwing clothes after one or two uses. At Pepper Tree London we are dedicated sustainable living and becoming a better brand, which is why we work hard to fulfill this mission.

REUSE – REDUCE – RECYCLE
These 3 words are our ultimate goal. In a world where fast fashion industry polluting the world most, we try to reduce our carbon footprint. The impact we are trying to create may seem small, but consider what we can achieve if we act together. If we all waste less and recycle more, the world becomes a greener place.
YOUR CLOTHING FOOTPRINT
People don’t understand the impact their clothing has on the environment and want to learn more to make more informed shopping and disposal decisions. Every year at least 26 billion pounds of clothing and textiles go into landfills, yet 95% could be reused or recycled. It’s time to act!
THE FUTURE OF FASHION IS SUSTAINABLE
The world is changing; so our habits. We do not know what the future will bring, but we know that the world will not be a habitable place if we continue to unconsciously waste the world’s resources. We must change our habits and gain a sustainable perspective. That’s why we really care about this.
BE KIND TO THE EARTH BUY MORE VINTAGE
Why should I buy vintage clothes when I can buy a new one? The answer is simple! You can reduce your damage to the world. Apart from that, vintage clothes are much better quality than today’s clothes. Because vintage clothes were produced more carefully than fast fashion. For the next 40-50 years, they can largely retain their original form. Can you say this for fast fashion clothes? We already know the answer.
SUSTAINABLE IN EVERY WAY
We try to reduce our carbon footprint in every way we can. From our shopping bags to store design elements, everything is recyclable. We try to keep our business as green as possible. This is our commitment to the nature. We’re proud to say that we minimize our negative impact on the earth.
