Sustainability info

Coster Copenhagen stands out as a family-owned Danish womenswear brand, known for its high-quality fabrics, vivid colours, great fit and comfort, as well as use of unique in-house designed prints.

The brand values CSR and sustainability, and always aims to increase its use of nature-friendly fabrics and processes. 

Moreover, it has recently launched its second-hand universe, where the brand offers to buy online customers' used clothes back to re-sell second hand.


Value Chain

The brand uses fabrics such as seawool, recycled polyester, Eco Vero Viscose Lenzing, and Reforest Viscose.

Coster Copenhagen uses the dead stock to make new products - for instance small scarves with the text "I should've been waste".

About the packaging, 50% of it is recycled. Indeed, Coster Copenhagen takes the packaging with samples and production from its suppliers, and re-use it when sending out orders to its customers. Its recycled polyester comes from re-used plastic from fishing nets picked up from the ocean.

Moreover, it uses biodegradable poly-bags. Approximately 70% of the total packaging consumption is biodegradable/compostable. 


Company Sustainability

Coster Copenhagen invested in a CSR course to educate its employees, in order to make sure they are up to date on sustainability.

Moreover, the brand invested in a solar farm and provides  free water in dispensers and makes sure that all employees sort their trash for recycling.

Moreover the company allows smart working. There is no fixed time allowed, it is decided individually depending on the task and role.


Community

The brand has been making donations to the Danish national cancer charity for many years.


Customer Care

The brand owns a second hand shop on its website, from which all clothes bought above 45€ can be sent back to the brand team and the customers receive a voucher with 25% of the value they spent.

Moreover, Coster Copenhagen provides a free cashmere brush to consumers, which they can use to make sure their cashmere lasts for as long as possible.
