Sustainable Corporate Clothing Options
Sustainable Corporate Clothing Brands
Chances are, your company cares about the environment and wants to invest in as many eco-friendly products and services as possible. When it comes to logo-branded company clothing, such as shirts and jackets, did you know that it’s possible to select sustainable corporate clothing brands? At Merchology, we’ve partnered with a range of brands that have sustainable practices.
Corporate responsibility and sustainability aren’t just buzzwords; they’re important issues that have risen to the forefront for many brands. To prevent climate change, it’s essential for all of us to work together. That means, in addition to doing their part to shrink their carbon footprints, companies should be taking pains to find more sustainable practices in every facet of their operations.
From office supplies and equipment to energy-saving appliances and practices, brands have a responsibility to set an example for their employees, partners, and customers by behaving more sustainably. Read on to learn more about our sustainable partner brands.

MiiR has committed to both measuring its emissions and reducing them to net zero by the year 2030. For each product MiiR makes, they aim to maximize their product lifespans, particularly when it comes to circularity and reusability. All MiiR products are fully recyclable, meaning that they can either be recycled commercially or put into blue bins. The company has also cut down on packaging waste in its supply chain, ensuring that packages are sustainably sourced and recyclable.
Here at Merchology, we have a selection of sustainable bags by MiiR like the branded MiiR Black Olympus 15L Computer Backpack. This backpack has a compartment for a laptop up to 15” and plenty of space to display your corporate logo. While it’s not clothing, this wearable and eco-friendly bag is a great way to reward your employees while also caring for the environment.
How Do I Know Whether a Corporate Clothing Brand is Sustainable?
Wondering how to tell whether sustainable corporate clothing brands are what they claim to be? Here are some important observations you can make:
- Find out what fabrics they’re using and whether they are sustainable. Hemp, recycled or organic cotton, and linen are all strong options.
- Take a look at their packaging materials to check for recyclable and biodegradable packaging--or packaging that’s made from recycled materials.
- Are they transparent regarding their sustainability and labor practices?
- Are they certified sustainable by a third party? For example, Tentree and Bellroy are Certified B Corps.
- Learn about the company’s short- and long-term sustainability goals. They should be tangible, with a timeline (such as MiiR’s goal to have net zero emissions by 2030).
- Find out where they’re located and how far they have to ship their products.
- Look for companies that create and sell products that meet your personal values around sustainability (i.e., fair trade, vegan, eco-friendly, etc.).
