Fashion that doesn't cost the Earth
The fashion industry isn’t known for its sustainability practices – in fact, it often falls short in all three pillars: economic, environmental, and social. It has a history of pollution of rivers and oceans with chemicals and microplastics, of excessive water use and carbon emissions. In some regions, there are reports of ongoing breaches of human rights and poor working conditions. The modern phenomenon of fast fashion is economically wasteful, environmentally destructive, and socially irresponsible. It is estimated that, every second of every day, around one full garbage truck of clothing ends up in landfill – that’s 31.5 million truckloads a year – because 85% of modern clothing is dumped each year.
Legenda aims to be the change we want to see in the world. Our kits are as environmentally friendly as possible, made from recycled polyester (from PET plastic bottles), and our packaging and mailing satchels are biodegradable and compostable. We minimise the usage of extra packing materials, tags, labels, etc. that add no value to you as a cyclist. On top of that, we make high quality products that are designed to last, instead of being thrown away after a short lifespan.
We want to be transparent with our customers, so we don’t claim to be perfect. It is currently very difficult to be 100% green and carbon neutral. As a new company, we have gone to great lengths to minimise our impact by using recycled fabrics, eco-friendly chamois materials, and even eco mailing labels! And we are constantly working towards improving and making our business as sustainable as possible.
Our products are certified by Global Recycled Standard, Greenlon, Bluesign and Oeko Tex, and our manufacturers are Smeta/Sedex approved.
