18 Aug TechStyle Fashion Group Announces Partnership with Good360 for Recurring Apparel Donations
New initiative extends TechStyle’s commitment to reducing its environmental footprint and giving back to communities in need
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.– TechStyle Fashion Group, the global fashion retailer known for its membership-based digital brands Fabletics, Savage X Fenty, JustFab, ShoeDazzle and FabKids, announced today an ongoing partnership with Good360, the global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving. Extending TechStyle’s growing commitment to philanthropy and sustainability, the new partnership kicked off with a donation of approximately $1.5M worth of JustFab and ShoeDazzle apparel to nonprofit organizations serving families in need.
“Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s become clearer than ever that as industry leaders, we have an important responsibility to protect our environment and communities,” said Meera Bhatia, President of Expert Services, TechStyle Fashion Group. “At TechStyle Fashion Group, we are always looking for new and impactful ways to lessen our environmental burden, while being mindful of our commitment to philanthropy. We look forward to working with Good360 to donate clothing on an ongoing basis to those who need it the most.”
“We welcome TechStyle as one of Good360’s new corporate partners and we look forward to working together to help those in need,” said Matt Connelly, CEO of Good360.
TechStyle’s commitment to donating good condition returns in partnership with Good360 is part of a series of recent initiatives dedicated to addressing waste in fashion while reducing TechStyle’s impact on the environment. TechStyle has also partnered with Soles4Souls in the past, donating footwear to provide relief to families in need, as well as donated unused fabric scraps to Marimole, a textile waste recycling company.
TechStyle brands have also increased their efforts to address the fashion industry’s challenges to environmental sustainability. This year, Fabletics, TechStyle’s popular activewear brand, has been a leader in sustainable brick-and-mortar retail by maintaining carbon neutrality at all of its growing fleet of stores. This year Fabletics also transitioned from plastic shipment bags to recycled, biodegradable and reusable polybags. And in celebration of Earth Day, the brand debuted an eco-conscious capsule collection made entirely from recycled and upcycled materials. The successful collection marked the first major step towards sustainable styles for TechStyle, with plans to offer more eco-conscious choices to customers across brands in the future.
In another sign of its ongoing commitment, TechStyle most recently completed a long-term project to eliminate all paper packaging slips from shipments globally. The shift is just one example of how TechStyle plans to prioritize initiatives and partnerships that can help reduce TechStyle’s environmental footprint.
