The lack of transparency is still one of the major flaws in global fashion industry. We as a sustainable startup for making bio-based materials tried to start collecting the data about our impacts measurements and being more transparent. We started to collect our data since the production processes for our Kickstarter project this year Q2 - Q3 2019.
We want to initiate and improve the environmental and social sustainability of our business. One of the measurements that we have done during the Q2 and Q3 2019 are the Scope 1, 2 and 3 (in progress) of our CO2 emission measurements.
We started to collect our electricity data to measuring our energy consumption and analyzing scope 2 carbon emission and also to create the baseline for our company. Thus we can progress toward better and efficient resource usage for our next future years.
Our products are using biodegradable agricultural waste as our raw ingredients, thus why we could say that we are actually trying to reuse and recovered the surrounding resources, even from waste, as efficiently as we can.
The by-product from our Mycelium Leather (Mylea) production processes is actually up-cycled into a bio-based particle board (Biobo). Our products using mycelium as the binding agents, it could be said that our products are much safer than conventional particle board since it used formaldehyde as their binding ingredient.
We still aim to integrated our impact report and the financial report to increase transparency towards our customers. We hope that in the near future, the facts on price transparency could be stated on each packaging of our products that we sell and also an integrated annual report.

Chromium is a common toxic chemical found in leather tanning. Mylea tanning process is 1000x lesser than leather that usually produces 30 mg/l chromium in wastewater.

The GreenHouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard classifies a company’s GHG emissions into three ‘scopes’.
emissions are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources.
emissions are indirect emissions
from the generation of purchased energy.
emissions are all indirect emissions (not included in
scope 2) that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions.
Total Carbon Emission
