The trendy clothing brand R4 Clothing is inspired by the 3R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and they have added 'Repeat' to it. The label thus reflects the principles of the circular economy.
Ethically produced: the hoodies are made in Portugal, the t-shirts in Turkey, the bucket hats in Italy and the tote bags in the United Kingdom. R4 only works with factories with the appropriate certifications to prove ethical business practices. For example, they work with factories with a GOTS certificate, SEDEX or FairTrade. R4 ensures that every factory they work with has at least 1 certificate in the field of social and ethical production; each manufacturer has a GOTS certificate.
