We believe that fashion can do more than just look good. For example, it can help others too. That’s why we value sustainable and socially responsible actions. Since 1928. We want to celebrate with a campaign that shines the spotlight on our employees and production, and that investigates how much consumers are really prepared to pay for a white T-shirt.
Sustainability at mey.
In 2019, mey published a CSR report for the first time. Sustainability and responsible consumption are the issue of our time and much more than just a fleeting trend. They are increasingly valued by consumers. We produce a large share of our products in our own factories in Germany, Portugal and Hungary.
