Sustainability

"We just can't consume our way to a more sustainable world."

 

At Omash we pride ourselves on being sustainably minded. We are aware of the ever increasing waste and emissions that are generated every minute by the fast fashion industry. We believe that transparency is key when communicating our sustainable efforts, and we try to implement as much as we can. 

In what ways is Omash sustainable? 

We try our best to be cognizant of our practices and to reduce our waste. Our world is ever changing, and as always we are adapting to incorporate new ways of being sustainable.

Carbon Footprint

We aim to reduce our carbon footprint by sourcing all materials locally, preferably within Ontario. 

Small Batched & Slow Made

Seeing the effects of fast fashion and the constantly changing trends, we make every effort to curate products that are timeless and elegant. Our collections are dropped quarterly and highlight the season's colours. 

All of our products are handmade in Ottawa, Ontario. 

Packaging

Our product packaging is recyclable and we use compostable mailers. 

Waste & Emissions

In an effort to reduce waste, some of the materials used to create our products have been inherited from friends and family who no longer need them, while others are gifted or purchased from suppliers that are closing down. Some of our collections also include products made from upcycled materials. 

All material scraps are recycled with a local recycler.
