we don't have to wait for 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 impacted 1.5 million of these young
changemakers. And we’re on a mission to reach 5 million by 2025.

at least 50% pro-planet materials
All polybags for leather goods are now

—to help revitalize our natural world.
We currently source more than 90% of our leather for our bags and small leather goods from Leather Working Group certified tanneries. That means this leather went through a tanning process that met strict requirements on responsible water use, wastewater discharge, energy use, chemical management and air emissions.
Take back programs
We’re developing take back programs in our stores across the globe in order to recycle and reuse products and packaging.
