We are committed to using clean resources and materials, and equitable policies and partners in all areas of our operations. In every aspect of our business, we strive to make decisions based on whether it nurtures the well-being of people and our planet. Corporate social responsibility, in addition to environmental responsibility, is of fundamental importance at wear on kids clothing. 

Focus on Materials


We believe that less is more when it comes to packaging at wear on kids clothing. Our objective is to limit the amount of materials required to package and deliver clothing to our customers, without sacrificing quality or service. For packaging materials that are needed, our selection criteria includes whether the materials are biodegradable and/or recyclable.


With the knowledge that clothing made from synthetic and plastic-based materials like polyester, nylon, spandex, and lycra biodegrades neither easily or quickly, it is important for us to use fabrics created from natural fibres only, and not blended with synthetic or plastic fibres. This is so the clothing items we produce with these fabrics can more quickly and easily biodegrade when they reach the end of their useful life.

The first line of wear on kids clothing launched in spring 2024 is made primarily from organic cotton, as well as hemp and linen, sourced from four Canadian fabric wholesalers and distributors. The fabric is milled in Japan and China, and the fibres are grown and sourced from Japan, China and India, and Europe. 

Extending the useful life of each piece we produce is key to reducing our collective and our businesses' environmental impact. To this end, we offer a guaranteed buy back and repair program for all the pieces we produce and sell so that they can live on and on and on. The fabric scraps created when manufacturing our products are kept in the "loop" and used in our repair program. 

Support for Well-Being

Supply Chain

While we don't yet have first-hand insight into the companies and working conditions of the people providing the raw materials and milling them into the fabrics we use, we have taken initial steps to confirm with our Canadian-based fabric wholesalers and distributors that the overseas mills they engage with:

  • comply with the environmental and waste management practices as required by their governments and regulations, and
  • apply ethical practices and adhere to their country’s laws regarding labor, living wages, working conditions, etc.

We have the pleasure of visiting our manufacturer's factory regularly as it is located just 25km from our business location. This not only allows us to see the people making our clothes but it also minimizes the environmental impact of transporting our products. 

Our Contractors

We have mindfully selected our small team of contractors including our pattern maker and grader, branding designer and accountant with locality and integrity in mind. The majority of these contractors are women-owned and operated businesses that we are thrilled to support.
