WE CARE

Growing up is a journey full of learning and milestones, all while having fun. As is our journey towards sustainability and social responsibility. It is a complex and never-ending journey, but we are determined and excited to do our part in building a better world for future generations.

We want to find better ways of offering children amazing clothes by minimising our impact on the environment and improving the conditions for the people involved in bringing our design ideas into children’s lives.

We have powered up with external experts who guide and inspire us. And just like children on the playground, we also learn a lot from our industry peers, as we find our right path on this important journey.

We are only in the beginning of this journey, but we know each step is important in its own impact. We hope that you will support us on this journey. Continue reading to learn more about how far we have come.

RESPONSIBLE MATERIALS

  • We want our garments to be long-lasting and made in a responsible way, considering both the environment and the welfare of humans and animals. Therefore, we focus on selecting better and more responsible materials when developing our products.

  • Look for the green label to find our styles made with one of the materials we want to use more and more in the future. The label will tell you which of the following materials it is: 

  • Organic cotton is grown and cultivated without the use of genetically modified organisms (GMO) and dangerous chemicals. That makes it better for the water, soil and biodiversity in the areas where the cotton is grown, while also protecting the health of the people involved in farming the cotton. 

  • Livaeco viscose from Birla is an alternative to conventional viscose. Here the wood used as raw material is derived from FSC® certified forests dedicated to more responsible forest production. This soft and breathable fabric is produced in a system that reuses the water and solvents leading to a lower resource use. 

  • Recycled plastics, such as polyester (PE), polyurethane (PU) and polyamide (nylon). These fibers are synthetic and non-biodegradable, however, most of them are recyclable. By recycling these materials, we help to lower the world’s massive plastic waste and the need for fossil fuels.

CERTIFICATIONS

  • Obtaining third-party international certifications is a priority to us, because they guuarantee that we, our products, and the respective supply chain, live up to recognised standards and their requirements. The certification process is both long and complicated, but we are determined to increasingly expand our range of certified products.

  • In 2023, THE NEW and THE NEW siblings will launch their first GOTS® certified styles. GOTS® is an international standard for organic textiles, recognized for its strict requirements that safeguards both humans and the environment

  • 60% of the styles in THE NEW siblings collections have Standard 100 OEKO-TEX® certification, is a guarantee that all components of the product have been tested for dangerous or potentially harmful substances.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • It is important to us that the people bringing our designs to life at the sewing machines and warehouses work under fair and decent labour standards and are treated with respect for human rights. Based on our Code of Conduct, we have built close relationships with our suppliers to continuously safeguard and improve the welfare of everyone within our supply chain.

  • We are proud members of amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). Through amfori, independent experts help us examine the working conditions at our suppliers and improve the social performance in our supply chain. They do so by auditing factories against the BSCI Code of Conduct is based on 11 principles, including no discrimination, fair remuneration, decent working hours, occupational health and safety, no child labour, and no corruption.

GOOD VIBES

  • We believe in children’s power to make the world a better place, and to do so they must be treated with respect. All kids are cool, and we want to encourage them to love themselves and the world around them.

  • We want to give children the freedom to choose clothes that match their personality and mood, and to inspire them to be strong and confident. It is important to us that all our materials and fittings make the children feel comfortable and give them freedom to play and grow.

Handle your clothes with care to prolong its lifespan

USE WITH CARE

  • All children are different, and the same goes for clothes. Please read the care label on your new garment carefully to give it the best possible care.

  • Only wash it when it is absolutely necessary, such as if it has become stained or gets a bad smell. Before washing it, try spot cleaning and air drying to protect your garment and use less energy and water.

  • When washing your clothes, make sure you lower the temperature on your washing machine, ideally to 30°C.

  • Wash items inside-out to minimise the risk of fading colours and prints.

  • Use the correct laundry detergents, preferably without perfume and other harsh chemicals.

  • Do not tumble dry, instead hang to dry outside in the shade if possible.

  • Accidents happen, and it might happen to a beloved sweatshirt or dress. Instead of discarding it, consider how you can repair it, cover the patch or hole with a cool logo patch, or transform it into something else.

  • When your child has outgrown a piece of clothing, remember that it can still hold great value and be loved again by someone else. So pass it on via a second-hand sale, donate it or make sure it is recycled.
