#maketimeforgood

When we combine our time and passion,
we don't have to wait for change —
we are the change.

How We’re Driving Change

We unleash the power of
underserved youth around the world.

We do this by supporting partners that put young people in
charge of their own future so that they can create change for
themselves, their families and their communities.

So far, we’ve positively affected 1.5 million of these young
changemakers. And we’re on a mission to reach 5 million by 2025.

What actions are we taking?
Leather Working Group Logo

Certifications

We currently source more than 90% of our leather for our bags and small leather goods from Leather Working Group certified tanneries. Meaning the tanning process this leather went through met with strict requirements on responsible water use, wastewater discharge, energy use, chemical management and air emissions.

Take back programmes

We’re developing take back programmes in our stores across the globe in order to recycle and reuse products and packaging.
