Zero Waste Exchange Policy

One of the major issues facing the fashion industry right now is the waste that comes out of the never ending cycle of disposable fashion that moves through the fast fashion industry with shocking speed. each season tons and tons of plastic garments are thrown away left to live forever in evermore full landfills.

we are creating a new path, a better way, and we want you to be part of it. 

As such, we offer a zero-waste policy for owners of our leather garments. If you no longer want the garment, and it is in relatively decent condition, we will buy it back from you for store credit towards future purchases. Our buy-back percentage ranges from 25-70% of retail value depending on the condition of the garment. 

Then we refurbish the garment and resell it to customers at a reduced rate and make sure the design can live on with someone who wants it. 

To use this policy, just save your receipt of purchase (should have been emailed at the time of purchase) and include a PRINTED version in the package you send us. just write zero waste policy on the included invoice and we will take care of the rest.

First we assess the value, sort of like a thrift store might when buying your used garments, and then we send you an email with the approved value and a link to access your store credit. 

 We honor the resources used to make our garments and are committed to making the garment last as long as possible. we are aware that animals died to make these garments, and people worked very long hours to sew these garments and it is very important to us that those impacts are honored for the life of the garment.

Leather and silk are natural and resilient and can last for a very long time if properly cared for and we want our garments to last as long as possible and also provide a more affordable option for our fans and customers to purchase our garments. This solves both of these problems. 

Please spread the word and thank you for supporting RITUAL in our mission to transform the fashion industry.
