We all leave an impact on the planet, so we should all play a part in cleaning up our footprint.
Businesses especially must help lead the way. At No/One Paris, we are working to do our part by building an ethical supply chain that creates high-quality, low-impact, long-lasting products. We carefully consider our materials and work with our production partners to reduce waste, chemicals, and plastics that endanger our planet’s people and ecosystems. Our timeless basics are designed to last—so making the right choice by the planet can be as simple as putting on a T-shirt.
Keeping Earth Cool
Humans are emitting far too much carbon into the atmosphere, and it’s destabilizing Earth’s climate. The science is clear: We can still save the planet, but we have to work fast—and work together. We need to reduce carbon emissions to limit warming to 1.5°C, as called for in the Paris Agreement. To achieve this goal, we must cut global carbon emissions in half by 2030 and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
They say to measure twice and cut once, but managing carbon emissions is going to take a lot more work than that. We started by measuring our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions to understand our impact and develop a plan for reduction that’s aligned with what the current science tells us.
Keeping Earth Clean
We carefully consider our materials and work with our production partners to reduce waste, chemicals, and plastics that endanger our planet’s ecosystems and negatively impact local communities.
Certified Organic Cotton
Worldwide, cotton farming uses more toxic pesticides per acre than any other crop. These chemicals are harming our planet—stripping the land of nutrients, contaminating our water, and endangering the people who grow it. That’s why we’re moving all our cotton to certified organic by 2023.
Our Approach—Certified organic is better for farmers, local communities and for the planet. Instead of toxic pesticides, organic farming uses crop rotation, cover crops and organic fertilizers to create rich life-supporting soil. Pesticides have a bad habit of poisoning groundwater, streams, and rivers, which endangers the people and wildlife that rely on those sources. By replacing dangerous chemicals with natural alternatives and old-school agriculture techniques, farmers are spared dangerous levels of exposure.
Our Progress—Cotton makes up roughly 70% of our fiber use. As of April 2021, we have transitioned 54% of our conventional cotton to certified organic qualities in our apparel and footwear textiles.
