Climate action

We believe all businesses have a responsibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve climate change literacy - including us.

Climate Change

The warming of our climate is the most pressing environmental issue we face, and the biggest risk to our business. Taking action to limit climate warming to 1.5C is crucial to prevent more frequent and severe weather events, such as storms, floods, fires and the resulting poverty and displacement of millions of people.

Carbon Audit

Each year we complete a carbon audit to calculate the emissions created to make our products. Most emissions are created from the energy required for freight, marketing and professional service organisations (electricity). As a textile brand who does not own the manufacturing process our highest emissions are our supply chain.

Our emissions reduction plan provides year on year improvements to reduce our actual emissions.

Our achievements include:

  • Modibodi HQ powered by 100% carbon neutral energy.
  • 95% freight shipped, which is approx. 30% lower carbon emissions than air freight.
  • Warehouses operate on renewable energy.
  • Education of suppliers on emission reduction opportunities.

A Life Cycle Analysis

We wanted to understand how our core products compare to single use disposable alternatives so we undertook a Life Cycle Assessment . We tested four different gusset absorbencies and compared them to single use equivalent disposables.

Two years of use:

  • A Modibodi gusset has 33% to 59% lower GHG emissions as compared to equivalent tampons and pads. *

Four years of use:

  • A Modibodi gusset has 63% to 77% lower GHG emissions as compared to equivalent tampons and pads. *

*This Peer Reviewed LCA data is based on four gussets (stitched within MB pants - being washed and reused) in comparison to equivalent pads or tampons.

Interesting Fact: Customers can reduce their emissions and water usage by following our care instructions - washing in cold water with full load and line drying which is also great for the longevity of the pants.

What is your carbon footprint?

Did you know we all have a carbon footprint! Everyday our choices impact the amount of carbon we create. Choices in how we TRAVEL our HOMES (electricity and heating) and what we CONSUME (food, shopping, hobbies).
