Meet the family: Aventura Clothing
Are you a fan of fashions in stores like Urban Outfitters? If so, you’ve love Aventura (who makes styles for UO.) We like them because they pay attention to the big picture, most specifically with their commitment to sustainability and giving back.
They say “We’re passionate about creating fashionable and comfortable clothing with low environmental impact. Look for the leaf icon to easily find styles made with sustainable or lower impact materials” and “We’re committed to giving back to our communities and making them a better place to live for all. We’ve partnered with food banks across the country and a unique non-profit for women to offer a hand up to those who need it most.”
Sustainable style begins with the right fabrics. With the use of organically farmed cotton, Aventura Clothing supports avoiding the use of chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and genetic engineering. They track organic cotton from the farm to their factories to ensure they are always working to reduce their footprint. Today, over 75% of their styles use lower impact or sustainable materials.
You’ll feel good about Aventura’s fashions and fits, especially their Organic Cotton styles, which are our favorites. Shep’s is Aventura’s only home in Wausau.
Meet the Family: Prana
No one does athleisure like @Prana, and we’re proud to be their home in Wausau. Visit their site to learn more about their commitment to Sustainability, Responsibility, Traceability, Fairness and Giving Back. We like the way they operate and you will to. Here’s what Prana says, it’s why we partner with them to support your active lifestyle:
“We go out of our way to ensure the impact we make on the world is mostly confined to our aesthetic. By using materials and partnering with companies and factories that adhere to strict guidelines for safety and efficacy, we’re able to make the beautiful and functional products we love, in a way that we can all feel good about.”
Visit Shep’s for Prana’s beloved sportswear, dresses, yoga fashions and accessories. You’ll be back for more.
We are so grateful to partner with the most inspiring people and companies. We’re going to highlight them each Wednesday this season so you can see why we chose them to compliment our mission to support you in your outdoor adventures while paying attention to the greater good. We think you’ll be inspired too, by their commitment to social and corporate responsibility, sustainability and so much more. We’re all in this together. Meet the Family:
