Our Commitment to Sustainability

We pride ourselves on designing thoughtful, timeless pieces that are built to last. Here’s what we’ve done so far—and what we’re still working on—to become a more sustainable company.

Produced with care.
Built to last.

Our clothes are stylish but not trendy, and we pride ourselves on creating designs you’ll want to wear for years to come.

Textile Production


We dot our i’s and cross our t’s. By which we mean, we not only know where our fabrics come from, but we also know the families who run and operate the mills that create them.

Textile Design


We spend years developing fabrics that combine a luxurious look and feel with practical features—like machine-washability and odor-resistance—that reduce the garments’ impact once they reach your closet. Plus, we just introduced a new fabric, Recycled Wondertex, that's made from recycled bottles.

Textile Recycling


Since 2018, we’ve partnered with FABSCRAP to recycle the bits of material that get left behind throughout the production process. Together, we’ve saved 6,478 lbs of fabric scraps from landfills.

Shop smarter.

Since our founding, we’ve offered complimentary styling services to ensure that you find the right styles and sizes and only invest in the pieces that will be useful in your wardrobe. That means fewer shipments back and forth and fewer unwanted pieces sitting in your closet.

Virtual Appointments


Shop with a stylist anytime to make sure you find the right fit and minimize shipments back and forth.

Easy-Care, Always


As of now, 46% of our garments are machine-washable. And for those that aren’t, we’ve partnered with The Laundress, whose products can be used to hand wash items that are typically dry-clean-only.

Fit and Care Tips


Have a mysterious stain? Got a snag in your sweater? Your garment’s life does not end here. Just email bonjour@mmlafleur.com, and we’ll help you revive your item.

Complimentary Hemming & Lengthening


We’ve partnered with Hemster to help you find your perfect fit. Learn More.

Get down with upcycling.

Our clothes are built to last, but we know your wardrobe will evolve over time. We make it easy to upcycle pieces you no longer need, which reduces a garment’s carbon footprint by 82% on average.

Second Act


Our customer-to-customer resale site, Second Act, where you can buy and sell pre-loved M.M. items.

thredUP


We include thredUP bags with every order. Use them to upcycle the clothes you no longer wear (including non-M.M. items!).

Bottomless Closet


Since 2017, we’ve donated thousands of pieces of clothing to this incredible organization, which helps disadvantaged NYC women enter the workforce.

Care(ful) packages.

Over the past few years, we’ve made major strides toward more sustainable packaging.

Good Things in Small Packages
In 2020, we transitioned to flat-pack shipping from our factories to our warehouse, which takes up less transit space and requires fewer cartons. Additionally, we take care to use recycled materials in our packaging when possible: our hangtags are made from 100% recycled paper; the polybags used to ship from our factories are biodegradable; and our bubble mailers are made with 50% recycled materials and take up less transit space than cardboard boxes.

Logical Logistics
We’ve partnered with a zero-landfill logistics center, which stores and ships all our inventory and orders.

Shaping Up Our Shipping
95% of our inventory is shipped from our factories to our warehouse by boat, rather than by plane. This option is significantly more fuel-efficient, reducing the carbon footprint of each garment.

It’s the climb.

We know we have more work to do, and we’re so excited to continue along this journey. Here is our pledge for the future:

 

  • We will create the option to offset carbon shipping for customer orders by the end of 2021.
  • We will use 100% sustainable materials by 2030.
  • We will be fully climate-positive by 2040.
