How we work to reduce our impact on nature
RIDE FOR NATURE
The hashtag #Ridefornature symbolizes one of our missions and is based on the notion that horses and nature go hand in hand. Our collections and our values are based on our passion for horses and the beautiful colors, shapes and phenomena found in nature. Therefore, environmental thinking and sustainability are natural parts of our strategy. We are constantly trying to find new ways to improve and minimize our impact on the environment both locally and globally.
Maintaining the highest quality
It is important for us to make our products last as long as possible and maintain a high quality. Therefore, the most essential thing we do is to try to work with durable and recycled materials as much as possible. We are constantly on the lookout for new materials, techniques and ways of producing our products that have the least possible impact on our environment.
For instance, we have chosen to use recycled polyester in many of our products. Polyester is one of the most widely used fibers in clothing because it is durable and long-lasting. Our goal is that in the future, all of the polyester and cotton used in our products will be produced from recycled sources.
We additionally use recycled coffee grounds in our clothing, which comes from the food industry. Coffee beans have an effective moisture dispersal and transport function that keeps the garment fresh and reduces unwanted odors. This results in that the garment doesn’t need to be washed as often – what’s better for the clothes, is better for the planet. We aim to produce comfortable products with high quality, for you to love and use for a long time.
HOW DO WE TEST OUR PRODUCTS?
We have a carefully chosen group of riders who are involved in the process of developing new products. The products are tested for approx. 6-12 months depending on the product and the area of use. The products must be approved in the following areas:
Transport is an integral part of our sustainability work. Today, we transport the majority of our products by sea, which is the most environmentally friendly way to transport large quantities of goods. We are continuously looking for new innovations to make our transport more environmentally friendly.
RIDE FOR WOMEN
Our mission is to empower women’s self-confidence and strengthen their opportunities to succeed, making every woman feel that nothing is impossible through the initiative #RideForWomen.
RIDE AGAINST CANCER
Each year, a staggering number of nearly 20 million people worldwide are affected by cancer, with breast cancer being the most prevalent form. Equestrian Stockholm has had a collaboration with Ride Against Cancer since the start, and for us it’s a given to support their incredible efforts.
RIDE FOR NATURE
The hashtag #Ridefornature symbolises one of our missions and is based on the notion that horses and nature go hand in hand. Our collections and our values are based on our passion for horses and the beautiful colours, shapes and phenomena found in nature.
Our collections are consciously crafted, with innovative and high-quality materials, a modern and fashionable design. We create our products with passion and attention to detail, that are meant to last more than one season. All of our collections are created in our different designs – classic-, sportive-, glimmer-, crystal- or maze quilting. Every collection comes with matching products such as clothing, fleece rugs, halters and more.
