CADRE STYLE is a curated e-tailer with the aim of making it easy to shop sustainable eco-friendly fashion. Founded in Spring of 2022, Our mission is to reduce fashion waste while providing luxe wardrobe essentials that never compromise on ethics, aesthetics or quality. While sustainable fashion is not perfect, Cadre supports brands making change in the fashion space. Using the CADRE CODE we vet all brands for Transparency, Fair Labor and Waste Reduction. We offer insights at the point of sale to tell you how the item is made, by whom, and of what. Working exclusively with brands that remove or reduce fashion waste through the use of recycled or biodegradable materials. All of which is third party vetted by partnership with Hey Social Good.

The CADRE CODE

TRANSPARENCY
We only work with companies who pull back the curtain on their production to ensure that they are produced in line with our values. We aim to educate and illuminate on what ethical fashion is.

FAIR LABOR
All workers are paid living wages and work under safe working conditions. We care about the people who make clothes as much as we care about the people who wear clothes. 

WASTE REDUCTION
Wardrobe staples designed to be lived in, a wardrobe to be cherished rather than disposed of. Made from biodegradable materials or recycled/upcycle materials to help reduce or remove fashion waste.

We partnered with Hey Social Good  to vet and certify our brands ethical production practices and low-impact materials. Hey Social Good created a framework in support of the United Nations’ SDGs, that examines 500 data points across our brands’ operations and gives them a comprehensive impact rating. All of our items pass The CODE. We do the lift so you don’t have to.
