Impact Score

We track clearly defined, measurable progress towards our sustainability goals on a 1-5 scale.

Transparency
4.5

Material supply chain has partial traceability back to the fiber level. Hass holds a B Corp certification that addresses transparency and has met publicly disclosed impact goals. We have formal donation commitments that account for more than 2% of revenue. Some fiber sources (Lenzing - tier 3) have ambitious transparency goals.

Emissions
4.7

Hass has completed audited calculations of scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and purchased accredited offsets. The blend of materials produces fewer emissions than other commonly chosen textiles within the industry. Hass actively participates in high-engagement advocacy campaigns for clean air, such as lobbying legislators directly.

Water & chemicals
3.3

Our modal is derived from wood pulp. It is primarily a natural fiber that does not release microfibers into waterways. Hass actively advocates for clean water through high-engagement lobbying activities. Modal from Lenzing is endorsed by Canopy Planet to be sustainably sourced. Hass has performed an LCA on this material to compare it to industry alternatives.

Materials
4.9

Hass modal is comprised of natural and organic fibers. It's biodegradable. Lenzing is a more responsible material compared to traditional, cheaper options. The material is endorsed by Canopy Planet and Hass actively advocates through high-engagement activities for safe material legislation.

Workers' rights
4.7

Hass has diverse leadership representation (36% female, 60% ethnic variance). Material production (tier 1 and tier 2) and Supima Cotton sourcing is local to the company headquarters. Our B Corp score in the supply chain management area is high (6.4 out of 8.83 points).

Waste

Hass is pursuing its Zero Waste certification. We have invested in paper roll pack machines to reduce single-use plastic consumption. Our donation programs result in 90%+ donation rates of returned products. Hass uses select materials that are certified according to specific recycled standards (GRS, RCS).

Luxurious and Durable

Made from beech tree pulp, modal is a soft material originally developed in Japan. The cellulose-based textile is more durable than rayon and has a silkier quality than cotton. It’s also a more environmentally-friendly alternative — beech trees require little water to thrive and the production process consumes 10 to 20 percent less water than cotton.

Sewn In LA

More than 95 percent of clothing is imported from overseas. Often, the clothes are made in factories with devastating environmental impacts and terrible human rights violations, including forced child labor. Intensive carbon emissions from transporting garments overseas increase the greenhouse gasses that lead to the climate crisis. That’s why we cut, dye, and sew this leisurewear collection in Los Angeles with Lenzing certified modal from Austria. The Global Organic Textile Standard has thoroughly vetted our factory partners to ensure we’re meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.

Natural and Sustainable

Why Natural Is Better For You

Because of their relatively low cost and ability to produce vibrant colors, 60 to 70 percent of all dyes in the textile industry are AZO dyes. The problem is — they’re highly toxic. AZO dyes release aromatic amines, a known carcinogen that can be harmful to human health. Other dyes commonly used in the fashion industry have also been found to contain heavy metals, which have been linked to cancer. At Hass, we only use natural, non-toxic dyes. This protects you, our workers, and the environment.

Feeding Those In Need

Nearly one in four people in the U.S. experience food insecurity. Hunger has devastating consequences for individual and community health. At Hass, we want to support our neighbors. With our partners, City Harvest in New York, and Food Forward in Southern California, we’ll donate a meal to someone in need with every purchase. Together we can be part of the solution to this crisis.

Certifications

1% For The Planet

Created by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, 1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects sustainably-minded businesses like Hass to environmental nonprofits. As members, we donate 1 percent of our annual revenues to verified organizations that address the interrelated issues of climate change, healthy food systems, land management, water resources, pollution, and wildlife diversity.

Certified B Corporation

Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balance purpose and profit — they legally commit to consider the impacts of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. It’s a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Reed + Gwen, as a subsidiary of Avocado Green Brands, has a B Score of 126.2 points — well beyond the 80-point minimum threshold.

Climate Neutral Certified

The emissions from burning fossil fuels are the leading cause of our unprecedented climate crisis. Hass is proud to be Climate Neutral Certified for net zero emissions. We work with the nonprofit to voluntarily measure, reduce, and offset more than 100% of our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions by supporting carbon offset initiatives through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
