It’s finally here, our 2022 Sustainability Report. We’re super excited to share our 2022 impact!
O My Bag operates in the fashion industry, where many of today’s environmental and social challenges take place. It is our mission to make a positive difference and to show that an ethical and sustainable fashion industry is within reach. As part of our commitment to transparency we publish our Sustainability Report every year. The report is meant to hold ourselves accountable and to track our progress on our mission. By discussing our failures as well as our achievements we hope to inspire you to join us in changing the fashion industry for the better.

Some highlights of 2022
2022 was a very successful year for O My Bag. We were able to visit our producers again after 2 years, we grew our team to 26 full time employees, and we achieved 55% revenue growth. We’re an impact driven company, meaning that growth allows us to maximize our positive impact.
- The number of people receiving our living wage premium tripled
- We have introduced woven leather to our collection, helping 40 women in a rural area outside Kolkata to acquire additional income
- We are continuously growing the number of lives positively impacted
- We have increased the share of sea shipments which helped to lower our shipping footprint

However, our growth comes with challenges too, such as a larger negative impact on the environment. By being transparent about our challenges as well as about our achievements, we hope to be an inspiration for others in the industry. We’re trying our best to reduce our negative impact as much as we can, but it’s not always easy.
For 2022’s report we focused more on results, and less on explaining our way of working. Throughout the report you’ll find hyperlinks to our website with all information you need. And of course, if you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out to our Sustainability Manager Femke on email@example.com.
