As a manufacturer of apparel, we acknowledge the responsibility that comes with creating a product with a life cycle. As citizens of this planet, we recognize our unique and beautiful position as stewards of our environment.
In addition to the measures we already take to help mitigate our environmental impact, from plant dyeing our apparel, reusing the water in our vats, designing with an eye towards minimal textile waste, creating new projects incorporating the waste we do create, composting our dyestuff, shipping our goods in recycled and recyclable packaging, and more all the time, we have also begun several programs that center around the theme of circularity. What is circularity? For us it means seeking out and creating new ways to repurpose and reuse our fabric remnants and taking ownership of the post-consumer life of our apparel.
We invite you to join us in this project by sending back your well-worn MBS apparel (whether stained, damaged, or simply ready for a new home). When you do, you will receive a 10% discount off of your next purchase, applicable to any item in-stock, Miranda Bennett Studio items.
The items you send back to us will be integrated into our Zero Waste Program. Once received, wearable clothing will be donated, unwearable items will be up-cycled into new products in our Zero Waste product line, sent to our Austin based textile recycling partner, Josco, who will convert them into industrial rags for tradespeople, or donated to the Austin Area Quilt Guild. The AAQG donates quilts to Safe Place, an Austin Shelter for battered women and children, as well as other charitable causes. To participate in the program please:
In recycled packaging, ship your item(s) to:
