Let’s give it up for World Environment Day

June 5, 2023
5 June 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of World Environment Day. Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and held annually since 1973, World Environment Day is the largest global platform for environmental public outreach.
Well, what exactly are we celebrating? Our climate is crying, screaming actually – and we’re constantly seeing worrying reports and numbers. Change needs to happen NOW – and that is exactly what World Environment Day is all about. Through various speeches, activities, stories etc., it is emphasizing the urgency and calling for cation. 


The 2023 World Environment Day Campaign #BeatPlasticPollution calls for global solutions to combat plastic pollution.
At COZE AARHUS we’re well aware, that our actions towards a brighter and less plastic poisoned future is just a drop in the ocean. Nevertheless, every drop counts!


So, what do we do at COZE AARHUS in order to reduce, reuse and recycle when it comes to plastic?


First of all, our wide range of products only contain an absolute minimum of polyester (which is a kind of plastic). We prefer working with organic cotton, ECOVERO™ viscose, TENCEL™ and Modal® as they are four of the most sustainable materials of our time (and all have a luxurious feel to them).


However, that stretchy feeling so characteristic for lots of our LAURIE jeans is impossible to achieve (for now, at least) without using a bit of polyester. Needless to say, we only use recycled polyester which is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fibres.  


When shipping LAURIE orders to our retailers and B2C customers, we also use polybags made from recycled plastic.


In addition to this, we embrace the concept of no minimum orders, enabling our retailers to make purchases based on their actual needs – instead of being constrained by a minimum quantity requirement. We consider it a way to help reduce overproduction, (plastic related) waste and the transportation-related emissions following this path. Last but not least, we believe that the concept of no minimum orders encourages more conscious and sustainable consumption patterns.


Together, let’s do better in this battle. Together, let’s #BeatPlasticPollution.
