Our sustainable vision

A solid
foundation

In order to build the path to a better future you need to reconsider and start with the basics. These include some of our more important decisions, that define both the brand and ourselves.

Materials

Materials
From the Fall of 2019 we started as a company to incorporate eco-friendly and sustainable materials, made from recycled bottles and fishnets from the sea. For years we have been trying to find alternative solutions to make our company environmentally responsible and our fabrics sustainable, and we are proud to finally announce it.

After a lot of research we discovered new sustainable materials that are made of ECONYL® regenerated Nylon that turns waste problems into fashion and interior solutions.

Excessive waste including Carpet fluff, fishing nets, and other discared nylons, after reaching the end of their useful life, are not disposed of into a landfill, but are recovered, regenerated and transformed by Aquafil into ECONYL® yarn, which is then used to produce our eco friendly fabrics, that guarantee the same performance as standard fabrics.

Makers

Makers
Rad wouldn’t exist without our passionate and dedicated partners.

At this moment we collaborate with three different manufactures, and all of them are Greek. Two of them are family owned small-sized businesses located in Greece, while the other one is a medium-sized manufacturing facility which is located in Bulgaria.

Packaging

Packaging
Taking this into account we have decided to abandon our current packaging method of plastic zip lock pouches and instead our new Collections will be packaged in recycled cotton drawstring bags.

Furthermore, in order to avoid the usage of plastic-stickers, we will provide recycled paper Card-Postals. The idea behind this, is to maximize the utility of each component of our offerings, even of the smallest one. To us, promoting environmental responsibility means investing in our present to live a better future. This is only the beginning!

Working Conditions

Working Conditions
As a company we sheerly prohibit and frown upon child-labor and any form of sweatshops in all parts of our production. As an integrate part of our company mentality, we promote human rights, fair wages and working hours.

In the extent that our employees work overtime, it is guaranteed that they will receive their over-hour payments, and our employees are guaranteed a healthy and safe work-environment.

Women Empowerment

Women Empowerment
It is important to us that, all three businesses/manufacturing facilities are women owned and operated, that continue to grow and pass on from generation to generation.

It’s all about
what you can do

At RAD we believe that change starts from within, therefore each and every one of us share this mentality and try on a daily basis to contribute positively in reducing our waste and above all, respect all earthlings.

RAD Office

RAD Office
Our headquarter is located in Marousi, Greece which is one of the biggest suburbs of northern Attica.

For many years now and in collaboration with the municipality (of Marousi), we have adopted recycling procedures in order to minimize our ecological footprint. The big-blue bins allow us to reduce our waste and improve our waste-management.

Our brand is also woman-owned by Amalia Roussou and Evridiki Valavani and operated by a team of two including Alex & Nadia.

Pet Friendly Policy

Pet Friendly Policy
As proud animal-lovers, in RAD we have the ability to bring our pets with us at the office. According to several researches bringing your pet with you at work, reduces anxiety and improves performance by 60%. We can all confirm that our mood elevates every time there’s a pup with us!
