At Project Cece you can choose from 5 sustainability filters: environmentally friendly, fair trade, vegan, locally produced, and good cause. By filtering on sustainability labels, you only shop the products that fit your values. It is also possible to filter on certificates and materials.
The environmentally friendly label is awarded by Project Cece when sustainable materials are used for the clothing and accessories. We also look at environmentally friendly production, such as water management and the use of hazardous chemicals.
The fair trade label is awarded at Project Cece if the production process of the garment or accessory is done fairly. This means a good salary, safe and hygienic working conditions, normal working hours.
Some sustainable brands also want to give something extra back to the world. They plant trees, they support charities, they provide free training and health care to the communities where their products are produced, and sometimes they give away free products. These brands also receive the Good cause label.
At Project Cece we define local production as all production carried out within Europe. This means that your product does not have to travel as far before it hangs in your wardrobe, and that there is often (but certainly not always) better control of the working conditions.
