Another brand taking sustainability in fashion seriously is Tommy Hilfiger and their sub-label Tommy Jeans. With the industry average of recycled fabrics in jeans at only 30%, Tommy Jeans has created a 100% recycled denim line. Made from recycled cotton and recycled thread and even recycled fabrics in their trims. In the production process, Tommy uses less water in the dying and treatment stages which, in turn, uses less energy. The recycled cotton is sourced from scrap material in their factories as well as hotel bed linen, with the recycled thread originating from recycled PET plastic bottles.

Giving back to disadvantaged communities is not only embedded within TOMS daily operations but is the core reason for the set-up of the brand. Founder Blake Mycoskie witnessed first-hand the terrible hardship experienced by many children when travelling in Argentina. Wanting to help, he set up TOMS, a shoe company that gave back one pair of shoes, to a disadvantaged child, with every purchase made; they called it ‘One for One’. This initiative has spread throughout the growing brand, including eyewear. With every pair of eyewear purchased, TOMS will fund and aid the sight of a child in need of glasses, medical treatment and even surgery.
Now, for every £3 TOMS make, they give £1 away. TOMS is committed to giving at least 1⁄3 or more of its annual net profits to organisations focused on physical safety, mental health, and equal access to opportunity. Since the birth of the brand, they have given 90+ million pairs of shoes to those in need, conducted 780,000 sight restorations and provided 722,000 weeks worth of safe drinking water.
