Wear Equal has been socially and environmentally conscious from the start. Right from the fabric we chose to make our products, all the way to the fair practices of manufacturing. As a brand, we have endeavored to constantly assess the progress of our mission, measure our achievements and work on solutions to improve our impact!
In this exercise, Livabl looked across the entire supply chain, from the raw material sourcing to manufacturing, through to the product delivery and consumer phase.
So, we partnered with Livabl, an external audit organization based out of Chennai, to calculate our social and environmental footprint and comparing that against traditional industry practices.
Basis the data calculated by them in adherence to GHG protocols,
the following metrics were analyzed:
FOR EVERY PRODUCT YOU PURCHASE,
YOU CREATE THIS IMPACT
We were thrilled to know about the benefits and environmental savings when better practices were used by us.
And in doing so, we also found ourselves aligned with the following Sustainable Development Goals.
Livabl also carried out a life-cycle analysis of our products and here is how we differ from conventional briefs available in the market.

We also found that delivery is the biggest factor in increasing our Carbon Footprint and therefore, we initiated the Shipping Offset program. Under this program, we aim to plant 100 trees every year to offset the emissions produced by our operations.
