We strive to create a product that is both ethical & sustainable. 
________
Giving back 
Each month we choose a charity to donate 5% of the total sales made online by customers. In March, in celebration of 'International Women's Day,' we are donating to the Charity Women for Women International. A global charity that helps female war victims in developing countries.  
________
Online Orders
In order to reduce the impact our business has on our planet and continue to help save our environment, for every online order we plant 1 tree with our partners reforestation projects, around the world. Each month we choose a different planting region relative to our business. In February we are continuing to plant trees in the Australian wildfire reforestation project. 
________
The unsustainable cost of free returns
Returns in the US alone create 5 billion pounds of landfill waste and 15 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually, equivalent to the amount of trash produced by 5 million people in a year. In the EU, total packaging waste in 2016 amounted to nearly 87 million tonnes or about 170 kg per person. We encourage you to shop consciously, 'buy less, choose well, made to last.' If you would like any order expertise on the fit and style of our pieces, please email us at hello@evarae.com 
________

________
Swim Repair 
Where possible we offer a repair service for our swimwear. As a business we want to help prevent climate change and reduce our carbon footprint.

Factory
We have a small atelier in Rimini, Italy, who have over 20 years experience producing swimwear, they are a family run business. Functionally as well as design is a strong belief within the brand and design team, we make swimwear that fits women of different ages, shapes and sizes. A lot of work goes into this by working closely with our Italian factory on how each piece is cut and fits the body. 
We can guarantee the safety & job security of those involved creating our garments and are proud of the relationship we have with the team.
________
Swimwear Fabrics
All swimwear fabric is produced in Europe by two suppliers, both are sustainable in their processes. A large portion of our swimwear is made from 100% regenerated nylon, this special material (Econyl) can infinitely recycled. Econyl is the first circular 100% recyclable material. 
To find out more please look at the material compositions on each individual product page. Recycled yarns can be made up of waste such as discarded fishing nets and other plastics that enter our oceans. 
________
Hardware
Made in Italy, our hardware is heat sensitive to the skin and will not tarnish when exposed to water. 
_______
Ready to Wear Fabrics
Our clothing is made from 100% natural fibres, it is produced in small production runs, therefore cutting down on waste and minimising environmental impact. 

Prints are designed in house and each piece is created with love by artisans in India, using traditional techniques. Women from local villages are trained in local crafts and given the incentives to improve their lives by working.

We have no minimum order quantities for our silk or cotton clothing, meaning we are doing our part to reduce unused clothing and wasted fabrics. Digital printing technologies are by nature more sustainable than traditional methods, and they offer a way towards clean and efficient manufacturing.

Digital Textile Printing saved over 40 billion litres of water worldwide in 2018, offering an efficient solution when compared to traditional water usage of rotary screen printing, which uses 50-60 litres of water per meter. Digital Textile Printing also uses smaller quantities of color, typically 10% of the volume used when compared to screen printing. 


Today the Digital Printing Industry offers a clean future for the environment and as the consumer and buyer becomes more conscious of their environmental choices and the true impact that those choices make, digital technologies and their application will continue to move forward to replace unsustainable and inefficient manufacturing.
