MOEVA supports a future with equality where all women are empowered with the same opportunities and rights, feeling beautiful in all shapes and sizes.
Working towards this goal, MOEVA collaborated with charities; Breast Cancer Care, Equality Now, and the industry leader Amoena® for implementing breast forms into some of their classic designs.
In 2016, Creative Director Burcu Tanman created their first mastectomy swimsuit, both designer-made and functional for women who have undergone a mastectomy. Committed to the pursuit of a sustainable future, MOEVA is dedicated to be a more responsible and environmentally conscious company.
MOEVA collaborates with companies that prioritize recycle materials, renewable energy, water-saving, and eco-friendly development.
As a brand we try to take steps toward sustainability and use eco-friendly and recycled options. We use FSC certified viscose, lyocell and recycled polyester to minimize our environmental impact. We prioritise our suppliers to follow every stage of the production cycle in order to reduce waste and water, energy, and chemical usage.
We are against animal testing. We don’t use fur, skin or leather.
We aim MOEVA's impact to be minimal as possible with its packaging. We redesigned our packaging to reflect our sustainability goals. We use FSC certified products that come from FSC certified sustainably managed forests. MOEVA EVA bag packaging is considered to be more eco-friendly, as chlorine is not used in its production, which means there is less toxicity released during degradation.
OUR RESPONSIBLE SUPPLY CHAIN
We commit to our duty to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and continuously try to minimize our carbon footprint. MOEVA garments are locally made, we try to use transportation methods that will generate less emissions. We also collaborate with suppliers that share our values and goals. We use Shopify Planet to offset the carbon footprint of each order.
We regularly calculate, track and monitor our water footprint and try to minimize our water usage. As the textile industry is one of the industries that use water the most, we collaborate with suppliers and manufacturers that have policies in place to control and reduce their water consumption. We took little steps in reducing our energy consumption and have plans to use renewable energy sources in the close future.
REDUCING OUR IMPACT
Waste is a problem, and it has been for a long time, ending up in landfills. We continuously try to reduce and eliminate our waste responsibly. All kinds of waste are separated and sent to certified third-party companies for recycling and decomposition.
We try to raise awareness about about a garment’s end life and to educate our customers on how to recycle their products properly. We started a Take-Back program for our customers which enable them to send their MOEVA pieces they don’t use anymore and we recycle it for them.
We take responsibility and consider ethical and environmental impacts of our transportation operations. We use Shopify Planet to offset the carbon footprint of each order.
