Xandres is investing in a better future, where quality and sustainability go hand in hand. We are developing a six-pillar plan to make our entire production process as sustainable as possible, from yarn and fabrics to the garment in your wardrobe, and long after.

What we do now

We limit the use of packaging where possible

We have eliminated plastic and packaging as much as possible in our online process. This means that all orders from the online store are sent without plastic packaging, except for white items that need the protective layer. Our shops use 80% post-consumer recycled plastic bags labelled as most environmentally friendly packaging by ‘Test Aankoop’ in 2021.

Transportation and packaging is also part of our production process (to get our clothing from the production facilities to the warehouses and stores). The hangers used in this process are collected and reused. Plastic is still used in this logistical step, but it is collected separately for recycling, following waste legislation.

What we'll do in the future

Together with our logistics partner, we will investigate how we can further reduce our impact by:

Eliminating unnecessary packaging.

Replacing necessary packaging with low-impact alternatives.

Improving our logistical process and transportation.

Together with our shops, online store & wholesale partners, we will further research the reduction of our impact and carbon footprint at sales points

As from 2022 we will participate in Flanders’ ‘Green Deal Anders Verpakt

Together with OVAM and the partners in this Green Deal, we will work on projects to achieve the targets we set. By 2023 we want to have an action plan in place to:

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle our packaging where possible, with measurable targets and deadlines.
Reduce our carbon footprint in transportation, with measurable targets and deadlines.
Reduce our environmental impact at our sales points: online, retail, wholesale.
