Why is climate awareness important for Equestrian Stockholm?
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. 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.
What do we do in terms of sustainability?
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 fibres 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.
Transport by sea
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.
