Nowadays, sustainability is a much more talked-about topic than it ever was before. Big and small companies alike are trying to reduce their environmental impact due to climate change. We all often wonder which kind of actions make brands sustainable.

 As a sustainable brand, Clutch Bags NY takes several measures to ensure that our products are as environmentally friendly as possible. For example, we use only high-quality materials that are ethically sourced and produced, and we work with suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability.

Additionally, we strive to minimize waste in our manufacturing processes and packaging materials, and we offer a repair service for our products to extend their lifespan. We believe that by taking these steps, we can help to reduce our impact on the environment while still creating beautiful and functional products.

What is Sustainability?

The United Nations defines sustainability as the act of meeting the current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This encompasses a broad range of actions that can be considered sustainable.

At Clutch Bags NY, we take our commitment to the environment seriously. We strive to be sustainable by adhering to three key principles: Locally Made, Quality Materials, and Style Versatility.

MANUFACTURING LOCALLY: Firstly, we manufacture where we have our headquarters and office, in the heart of NYC. This cuts down on waste, carbon emissions, the list goes on!

HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS: Secondly, we reduce waste by making accessories with high-quality materials so that the products hold up for years and are not thrown into a landfill because of broken zippers or tearing. Second, we reuse materials whenever possible, including repurposing old fabrics and accessories.

STYLE VERSATILITY: Lastly, we design bags that are versatile and classic, so they can be used for many different purposes, worn to many different events, and provide enduring style that you can wear for years to come, and never look out of date.

It's always great to see companies like ours taking steps towards sustainability and preserving our planet for future generations!

The importance of Manufacturing locally 


Local manufacturing can have a positive impact on the environment by shortening the supply chain. When clothing brands manufacture their products overseas, the process of packing and shipping consumes a lot of energy, which contributes to CO² emissions. Transportation by flight, ship, train, and car all generate emissions that harm the environment.

Additionally, since we manufacture our accessories in NYC, we can oversee the entire production process to ensure quality and fair wages for employees. 

When we manufacture products locally, we create jobs and stimulate the local economy. It also reduces transportation costs, carbon emissions, and dependency on foreign countries for goods. Additionally, local manufacturing allows for increased quality control and faster turnaround times for product development. Overall, it's a win-win situation for the community and the economy.

Working with high-quality materials

Making high-quality products is the key to ensuring that your customers do not have to buy a replacement because their previous purchase was damaged. At CBNY, we manufacture high-end bags using Italian leather that can last for years, offering a lifetime guarantee.

Working with high-quality materials is crucial for achieving the best results. Whether it's in construction, manufacturing, or any other industry, using top-notch materials ensures that the end product meets the highest standards of durability and functionality. Investing in high-quality materials may require a higher upfront cost, but it ultimately pays off in the long run through better performance and longevity."
