BOOMSKIZ® - Sustainability and Responsibility
Here at BOOMSKIZ® Apparel we choose to make high-quality products “made to order” and to work with fulfillment suppliers that align with the same sustainability and responsibility values as ours.
One of our main goals in 2021 is to be kinder to the planet we all share. We know that sustainability is important: for our customers, our team, and of course, the planet. We also know that all the sustainability challenges in the fashion industry don't have a quick fix, but we are willing to do our part.
A little over 80% of the customers we surveyed stated that sustainability is important to them, so we're continuously putting our efforts into becoming a better sustainable company. We value your trust and avoid promises we can’t keep, so we’re starting small and making decisions that make a lasting difference moving forward. We’re keeping an open mind and a realistic approach, looking at things we can change now, and figuring out what could be improved in the future.
We look forward to doing the right thing, for the planet and people as we grow the BOOMSKIZ®, BMSKZ™, and boomski™ brands.
Some of the benefits when you purchase a product from us:
Made to order
Every purchase, big or small, creates a footprint. With each purchase, you've got a choice. You have a choice on the size of footprint you choose to leave on this planet, and we want to help aid you with your choice.
Around 85% of all textiles produced by apparel/ fashion industry ends up in landfills, making it a serious contributor to environmental damage. One in every five garments reaches a landfill without being worn even once. By choosing “made to order products”, you choose apparel that's created only when the order is placed, creating less fabric waste than conventional manufacturing.
BOOMSKIZ® Apparel products are made using the made-to-order approach in an effort to fulfill only the items you want. We have more learning to do, to make our production process more sustainable. We will continually strive to be better.
Around 78% of our orders are ordered in the same region we fulfill them. Working with our fulfillment partners close to where our customers are is good for our business and the planet. Our fulfillment partners are strategically placed to allow for faster shipping times and lower shipping costs, as well as reduces the CO2 emissions produced when transporting your order.
Our fulfillment partners make BOOMSKIZ® Apparel products in the following countries & locations:
North America - USA - Charlotte, North Carolina & Los Angeles, California & Canada – Toronto, Ontario.
Other locations: Mexico, Latvia, Spain, and fulfillment partners in Australia and Japan.
The better the quality, the longer the product lasts. We work with suppliers that produce high-quality products that last many washes, keeping our print colors vibrant and the fabric soft.
BOOMSKIZ® eco-friendly collection consists of items that feature sustainable, recycled, or biodegradable materials.
To keep up with the demand and requests for eco-friendly options, we will be providing even more conscious fashion choices in 2021.
The majority of BOOMSKIZ® Apparel products are printed with the DTG technique (direct-to-garment). The process of DTG, ink is sprayed onto the garment, which helps soak better into the fabric and makes the print less prone to fading.
Our fulfillment partners use printers whose printers produce almost zero wastewater and uses less energy, lowering the carbon footprint. What’s more, these printers use water-based vegan inks, these inks are non-hazardous, toxin-free, biodegradable, contain zero animal by-products, and certified with an OEKO-TEX® Eco Passport. – now that’s a real BOOMSKIZ!
