We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
At RSLVE, we view sustainability as the most aspirational way to run a business; placing equal emphasis on the communities we touch and the planet we share. As a for-profit business, we bring our personal values to work with a clear focus on doing “good” while doing “well.” Along the way, we seek to learn, educate, and build a community of like-minded collaborators.
The branded apparel and products industry churns cheap and disposable products that devour natural resources: products with fleeting life cycles that move quickly (and permanently) to landfills and our oceans.
Of course, we recognize that people can’t scrap their careers to focus solely on altruistic outcomes. There are companies to run, bills to pay, and mouths to feed. Fortunately, consumer awareness is growing, leaders are emerging, and the wheel of change is gaining momentum.
We are committed to being an active participant in this change for good. We’ve embarked on a journey with one goal in mind; to run a company that is true to our identity. Along the way we’ve encountered exciting ideas and sobering realities. The truth is that there are no perfect solutions or completely circular processes (yet). Our journey is far from over and includes continuous problem solving. Here’s what we’re doing now…
The journey continues and we will continue to evolve as our business grows and new technologies emerge. In the meantime, we invite you to join our community, to share your ideas, and to be a part of the solution. Learn more about our policies here.
