Our commitments

We are fully transparent about how we do things. Our prices are what they are for a reason, and we always strive for the highest level of transparency when it comes to our production methods and communication.

Our commitment deepens as our company expands. 95% of what we make is produced in the European Union. Each year, we increase how much environmentally responsible GOTS material we use in our collections while continuing to minimise our CO2 emissions, by matching volumes supplied with market demand using ever-more responsible production and distribution methods. We have also made ecological and social commitments, such as using compostable packaging (we were the first French company to do this) and recycled cardboard, by upcycling our material waste and offering our unsold products to associations and charities such as Cravate Solidaire. At Hast, we are passionate about clothing, but we also aspire to make our production as fair as possible.

Compostable packaging: TIPA, recycled and recyclable cardboard…

For a number of years, we have worked hard to limit how much single-use plastic we use. We have teamed up with TIPA, a start-up that makes fully compostable packaging. In addition, our logistics provider uses boxes made of 70% recycled cardboard that is also fully recyclable.


Working with textile products often involves lost or wasted material. At Hast, we quickly saw the value in reusing the discarded fabric used to produce our shirts to make upcycled boxer shorts. By doing this, we avoid wasted material while also making a high-quality product.

In-store recycling

A few months ago, we began placing recycle points in stores. Our aim is to let customers leave items of clothing by Hast or other brands (e.g. shirts, trousers, T-shirts, etc.) that they no longer need, which we can then convert into recycled fabric. This makes a valuable contribution to the circular economy.

Social engagement

However much we or any company tries to match the volumes we supply with market demand, there will always be some stock left over. We hold unsold stock over for associations and charities like La Cravate Solidaire, which provides formal wear for those attending job interviews, and AIDES for its annual collection.

Calculation and reduction of our Co2 emissions

In 2020, we began to calculate our carbon footprint, in order to analyse and reduce the level of CO2 emissions associated with our business. Producing clothes imposes a high cost on the environment, in the form of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Emissions are caused by the cumulation of physical processes needed for human activity and production. We have estimated the carbon footprint for each area of our business operation, in order to significantly reduce our emissions by 2030.
