What does "People Matter" mean?
This is the part of fashion that is focused on the people who make shopping possible – the garment worker. We support brands that execute fair employment practices throughout their entire business model. “Fair trade” and fair wage practices are a huge part of sustainable shopping, which is why we included a pillar for this in ourConscious Scale.
What does "What Sh*ts Made Of" mean?
One of the pinnacle elements of sustainabilityare the fabrics that go into making the garment. While all garment making has an impact on the environment, there are fabrications that are less taxing. Recycled materials, dead stock fabrications, long-wearing natural fibers are all ways clothing manufacturers can make better decisions when it comes to fabrications.
What does "Conscious Impact" mean?
Just like the type of fabrication can impact the level of sustainability in a garment, the manufacturing processes by which garments are made, shipped and consumed also have an extraordinary effect on the environment. We support brands that are committed to reducing their carbon footprint through conscious decisions like waste management, upcycling initiatives, quality and quantity control and more.
What does "Inclusivity" mean?
The fashion industry has a terrible reputation for not showcasing the diversity of humankind to reflect those that are wearing their garments. We want to support businesses that are committed to changing that image through gender and size inclusion. EMLE believes in celebrating our differences, rather than disparaging, we want anyone and everyone to see themselves in EMLE looks.
What is your Conscious Scale?
Our Conscious Scale is the model with which we allow brands to be a part of EMLE. Our goal with EMLE is to create a marketplace that supports many facets of sustainability. We believe that “shopping smart” isn’t just looking at clothing from a “green” perspective, but a more well-rounded view that includes many ways we can be shopping “better”. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about making better decisions with how we shop.

Which sustainable denim will fit best?
Shopping online for sustainable denim can be tough. The best rule of thumb we have here is that the higher the cotton fabric content is, the more rigid the jeans. Check out your favorite pair of current jeans to identify the fabric content and then look to find pairs that have a similar fabric content. Use size guides and your own measurements to be even more precise!
