Employee Environmental Education

Handsome holds regular environment education for all executives and employees.
Our employees have easy access to various environmental issues and activities through a
professional education with environmental experts as guest speakers, and internal newsroom.

UN Eco-Friendly Certification

Handsome was certified ‘AAA’ Grade by the UN Asian Pacific Economic Social Commission
for GRP (Guideline for Reducing Plastic Waste & Sustainable Ocean and Climate Action Acceleration).
We put our best efforts towards protecting the environment by changing all materials of
shopping bags to eco-friendly materials and expanding usage of natural and eco-friendly
materials for our products

Eco-friendly Inventory Disposal

To minimize carbon emission caused by disposal of excess stock,
we have introduced an eco-friendly stock upcycling system.
With an outside partner, we have sorted and shredded
recyclable stock, which then are compressed to make construction panels.
We have used these panels as our fitting room walls in our new store locations.
Handsome will continue to develop and introduce new methods of upcycling excess
inventory to reduce carbon footprint.

Support Nurturing of
Young Green Leaders

Handsome has been a regular donor of Children's Environment Center
to support the nurturing of Young Green Leaders since 2020.
With this program, children are able to learn about environmental
impact and have a closer experience on eco-friendly efforts.
The Environment Foundation offers education and support programs
regarding caring for bio-diversity and reducing plastic waste for children.

Eco-friendly Packaging

Handsome uses recyclable foldable box and paper tape in stores.
We consider every step of the product lifecycle until reaching our customers in
eco-friendly ways to preserve the environment.
