Be Gentle

At Gentle Fawn we believe our purpose extends beyond fashion.
We have made the commitment to be gentle to our planet and everyone in it.
This commitment is at the center of everything we do.

See how we are striving to be a little kinder to the world around us.

Planet

Gentle Fawn is creating a path toward a more sustainable future. Our aim is to implement change to be gentle and reduce the negative impacts on our environment. We are currently identifying areas with the highest potential for change, both in our office operations and our product design, by exploring lower impact materials, processes and packaging. We will be sharing our journey with you along the way. 

  • As of August 2020 we will be introducing compostable ecommerce mailing bags, made from plant based materials and disposable in home composts.
  • By January 2021 we will be introducing sustainable fabrics such as Modal, Tencel, recycled materials and organic fibers, with the goal to continue increasing their usage within our collections.
  • By January 2021 our garments will be packaged in biodegradable poly bags, reducing the time these plastics spend in the landfill,
  • By January 2021, 100% of our hang tags will be made from recycled fibres.
