We believe that change must happen with each and every one of us. This is why Mona is committed to social and environmental sustainability. Staying true to our values, we respect all of the people involved in each step of our supply chain.
From ethical raw materials sourcing, to choosing socially responsible manufacturing facilities, we produce beautiful and durable products and envision a future where we give back to the environment and prioritize community.
circular design is the future
When we learned that nearly 70% of an average company’s environmental impact happens at the raw material level, we knew we could do better. Since then, every single step of our process, from design to delivery, is done with you and the planet in mind.
Out of the 18 billion pounds of plastic that enter our waterways every year, discarded fishing nets make up roughly 10% of plastic in the ocean and have been found to be four times more harmful than all other forms of plastic pollution. The total amount of discarded fishing nets in the ocean is equivalent to the weight of 3,200 blue whales
BEING SUSTAINABLE IS BADASS..
“I created MONA as a reflection of my story, the strong women I’m surrounded by and my dream of creating a better world for generations to come.”
- Mona Picasso.
THE MONA PROCESS
Fishing nets and other post consumer plastics are collected from oceans and landfills all over the world.
The waste is cleaned, sorted, and recycled into fresh polymer chips that can be used to make Nylon.
Pure Nylon fibers are made and woven into high-performance fabrics for use in Mona apparel.
Using our custom recycled fabrics, we create high-quality products that can be recycled over and over again.
Mona's partners are committed to innovation and the development of sustainable materials.
OUR SUSTAINABLE PRINTING PROCESS
To insure the sustainability of our vibrant custom prints, we use the most environmentally friendly printing process in industry. Our printing process uses 90% less water and does not produce polluted water waste. All of our inks are water–based, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
