At Meg, style is synonymous with sustainability. At our core, sustainability is not a buzzword - it’s a part of our brand in every aspect of our designs, marketing, and in-store services.
When our clothing has reached the end of its lifecycle within our client’s wardrobes, we invite them to bring their Meg pieces back to us with the Archive program. This program creates a closed-loop cycle for our clothing, keeping pieces out of the landfill and in the closets of people who cherish them.
When pieces are brought back to the Archive, they are resold online. 20% of sales from the Archive program are donated to Planned Parenthood. Learn more about the Archive program here.
Sustainability is at the forefront of our business, and we are always looking for new ways to improve. We hope that more businesses will follow our lead in making sustainability a core pillar of our company.
Our commitment to sustainability doesn't stop at design. For the past six years and ongoing, Meg has been hosting pre-order events, which are held at her storefronts as well as online during February for Spring/Summer collections, and in August for Fall/Winter collections. These events offer our most loyal clients a sneak peek of what is planned for the upcoming season and allow them to give us their feedback on styles from the collection. Clients can then pre-order the pieces they want during this two-week period, and receive 15% off as a thank you.
These pre-orders are a form of crowdfunding that help us determine what quantities to make, which helps support our mission of being more sustainable, and prevents clothing from being made if it will not be purchased. Our clients are also able to plan their upcoming season’s wardrobe and purchase Meg exclusives when pieces have limited fabric availability. View the current information on pre-orders here.
We produce our clothing ethically at factories in New York and Toronto. We nurture personal relationships with our manufacturing partners and visit our factories multiple times per season to ensure pieces have been made at the highest quality standards. Learn more about our factories here.
Within each collection, we give new life to forgotten materials by utilizing deadstock fabrics that would otherwise go to landfill. These fabrics create pieces that are limited in inventory and one-of-a-kind.
