In order to solve one of the biggest sources of plastic polluting the environment, a shared effort from industry, NGOs, governments and consumers is needed. That’s why we are in collaboration with multiple partners in the fashion & textile industry as well as scientists and research centres.
Amberoot isn’t just the only plastic-free multibrand shop worldwide, it has also developed the best ‘Material environmental sustainability ranking’ tool to date.
