Steps Toward Sustainability
We’ve always got the environment in mind here at Skies Are Blue. Like you, we’re constantly inspired by the beauty of the world and know that action is vital in order to preserve it. We’re continually making strides when it comes to our sustainability practices, and we’re proud to share our green initiatives with you.
We make clothing that you can feel great about wearing. Our designers are dedicated to researching the finest recycled fabrics to create covetable styles that are gentle on Mother Earth. Starting in June 2022, we've released eco-friendly garments made with Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified Recycled Polyester which is made from PET bottles spun into recycled polyester fiber. The yarn is strong and long-lasting, yet slinky and soft to touch. Through this program, we are able to give new life to plastic waste and and consume less energy and less water.
As of October 5, 2020, we are happy to announce all of our shipping materials is 100% recycled and biodegradable.
It’s our belief that we have a responsibility to create a positive impact on a global level. We’re committed to partnering with ethical overseas factories that comply with fair labor and wages to assure a safe and respectful workplace that puts a priority on employees’ well-being.
Local Outreach Programs
Change happens when we all get involved. Each and every one of us has a unique role to play in shaping a better world. For us, that means sharing our resources. Skies Are Blue is proud to partner and provide essential clothing donations to The Sheepfold, a Southern California charity that offers refuge and rehabilitation for women and children experiencing homelessness and domestic violence.
We love our hometown of Los Angeles, and taking care of our neighbors is important to us. We’re getting out there and trying to make a difference whenever we can. In recent years, we’ve purchased and distributed more than 500 sleeping bags to those in need, and we’re just getting started—it’s our mission to continue and expand this effort.
We also donate a portion of sales proceeds from our annual sample sales to local and global nonprofit organizations, including those dedicated to providing relief to the people affected by natural disasters such as the 2017 Mexico earthquake and the 2021 California wildfires.
