What We Wear All our viscose is organic and FSC certified, produced from sustainably managed plantations. 80% of our cotton is organic and certified. This eliminates the use of pesticides and fertilisers. Organic cotton prevents contamination of groundwater, thus making drinking water clean and safe. We are producing jeans in a sustainable manner, that requires less water, fewer chemicals, and less energy. All our products are tested for harmful dyes and chemicals. We use plant-based dyes and artisanal processes like block printing and hand painting to reduce our carbon footprint.

What's in the Box Our packaging boxes are all recycled, and we use 0% virgin or single-use plastic.

ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABILITY

The ecological impact of our consumption habits has become one of the most significant concerns of contemporary times.

At Moon Ray, we are determined that the idea that someone or something could be rendered useless is fundamentally violent and a lost occasion to discover limitless opportunities. Inspired by handcraft's zero-carbon footprint nature, we are strong advocators of sustainable innovations, development, and responsible materials to reduce global toxic waste.
