We think that “Sustainability” could be more than a meaningless buzzword. Today the word has morphed into a blurry term that fits into whatever box you want it to — a catchall for everything "conscious". For us, it’s a way to describe our commitment to environmental rights and a corporate focus that expands beyond profits.
We work with principled people who help themselves by helping others. We believe in good profit, meaning no excessive margins. Operating The Proper Way ™ is creating superior value for our customers, company, partners and every employee who contributes while using fewer resources, being conscious about the next use not the end of life, always acting responsibly and with integrity.
sold with integrity
The saying goes, “It takes a lifetime to build a reputation and seconds to destroy it". The foundation of reputation is integrity. For us, prioritizing integrity means managing the label and its community fully aligned with our morals and ethical principles. It’s about maintaining consistency between what we say and what we do, the decisions we make and how we treat people. It’s about “Intent” and how we implement our code of conduct with all the contributors of the supply chain. Selling with integrity means that our price composition has to be fair towards our community, partners, manufacturers and their employees, and our business.
Recycled by the PROPER community
TPL ™ encourages everyone to recycle. Our goal is to contribute to the reduction of clothing waste by extending the use cycle of clothing and footwear in general. With the help of Wearable Collections and the consumer’s willingness, our recycling program will start in January 2020. This way, we can take back your pre-loved clothes and sneakers, which will be picked up by our partner Wearable Collections to their sorting facility for reuse or to be recycled.
PS : If you live in the New York area, please find Wearable Collections drop-off locations on their website.
