Sustainability Practices

Killstar doesn't use any sustainable materials, organic or recycled. It makes its products with either natural fabrics without relevant certifications, such as conventional cotton, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.

Killstar also uses a small amount of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as viscose. But only no material used by Killstar is environmentally friendly or sustainable.

Killstar doesn't publish a list of its manufacturers or processing facilities on its corporate website. It provides no information regarding how it chooses its network of suppliers.

Killstar manufactures its clothes in China, where human rights and labor law violations still happen every day. It doesn't mention if it organizes any informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice.

It doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other human rights for workers in its supply chain.

Killstar doesn't have a code of conduct that applies to its suppliers and subcontractors to ensure social and labor standards, ethical and sustainable production.

Killstar doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, or fur. But it uses angora, leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.

These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.

Sustainability Goals

Killstar doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, chemical release, pollution, or waste across its supply chain.

It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timeline to improve in the future either.
