Cozmo Care - For Kids, People & Planet
Cozmo Care - For Kids, People & Planet
At My Little Cozmo, we care about kids, people and the planet. Our aim is for everything we do, to be done ethically and responsibly while reducing our ecological footprint.
We call it Cozmo Care, and it applies to all our organization and activities.
We have an ethical promise: to offer responsible kids’ fashion that feels right for our little ones and for the cozmo around us. We want to make clothes that care for both people and planet through the whole process, from design and manufacturing to wear and afterwards to recycling.
We love to work with organic fibers and our share of sustainability-labelled clothes is increasing constantly.
However, we, together with the whole textile industry, have big challenges in front of us: consumption of electricity and water, the use of pesticides and other chemicals, the current fast fashion consumption (clothing underutilization and the poor awareness of recycling) and the lack of diversity among others.
We know there is a long way to go before the kid’s fashion industry is ethical and sustainable, and at My Little Cozmo, we yet have to achieve our objectives too. But we are determined to take on the challenges and are convinced that things can change. We believe that the kid’s fashion future is brighter and more responsible.
We need you
To go all the way in our global journey towards ethical kid’s fashion, we need your help and that you come along on this journey! For us your help is crucial in making the industry change in becoming more ethical and eco-friendlier.
So, what can you do? Buy clothes for your kid’s wisely, have in mind the 'made in tag label' of the clothing, take good care of them, use them often and for the longest time possible and when the moment comes, pass them on to another child. You can donate them to friends or family or give them recycling, for example. By doing that we can close the loop and create the circularity required for responsible fashion. Care for our kids and our cozmo. We are in this together!
How we are dealing with the challenges
We strive to reduce our energy waste. That is why we have implemented energy-efficiency measures in our workshop. Our ambition is to create a healthy and safe workplace, limit environmental damage and reduce the emissions of green-house gases.
We believe in the future of alternative energy sources. As an example, our workshop uses a biomass heating system. Biomass is organic material that is burned to generate energy, this makes it a sustainable, renewable and low-carbon option.
All our collections include eco-friendly and organic fabrics. We always try to select materials that have a lower impact on both nature and human health. That is why we do not use leather, mulesed wool, fur, skins, feathers, conventional silk or indigo dye. We want to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible and therefore we also reuse leftover fabrics from earlier collections. We also work with certified OEKOTEX suppliers in dye and print process to prevent harmful substances in our garments.
Green eco mindset
Most of our labels, packages and marketing materials are recycled or biodegradable and we avoid bleached cardboard boxes. Additionally, we optimize our packaging and shipping boxes and use the minimal packing filler. One of our goal is to digitalize all our processes to become a paperless business. Additionally, we reuse cartons and other packages from our suppliers.
Designed & crafted in Barcelona
We are proud to say that My Little Cozmo is exclusively made in Barcelona. All our garments are designed and crafted locally. This allow us to create jobs for local workers, keep manufacturing plants, control labor standards and have a better level of quality control. Local production further helps us to reduce our footprint, minimize the waste disposal and achieve our sustainability goals.
We care about garment workers. That is why we source suppliers with sustainability and fair labor as key criteria and priority. Producing in Barcelona also guarantees that employee rights are protected by EU employment laws. Furthermore, we are aware of the importance of maintaining and improving the well-being of employees and their workplace conditions.
