Fashion relies on the natural environment for much of its materials and processes. The environment is not only crucial to our business, but to our customers and employees that value a healthy world now and for generations to come. With environmentally minded programs at our corporate headquarters, distribution centers and retail stores, we are working to build a company culture that considers the environment throughout its business.
By the end of the year, we retrofitted a total of 210 retail stores in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Though the exact savings may vary, we estimate that these upgrades will save 48% of electricity use. We plan on retrofitting an additional 106 stores in 2015.
At our Los Angeles headquarters, which also has a small shipping warehouse on site, we are progressively upgrading to LED lighting and reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill.

In 2014, we reused 23% of our waste and recycled a further 19%, in total diverting more than 17.5 tons of waste from landfill. We reused 90% of our cardboard boxes and recycled a range of materials including cardboard boxes (that could not be reused), metal from retired rolling racks, store fixtures, furniture, paper and batteries from electronic devices.
