We work together with our partners in order to make an impact. Reima is also a proud member of various sustainability networks and organizations.
Give used clothing a second life with Reima and Emmy
At Reima, we believe in creating long-lasting, durable clothes that can be passed down and reused, diminishing the clothing industry’s overall impact on the environment. Reima has partnered with Emmy, Finland’s largest online second-hand store, to promote the reuse and resale of Reima clothing.
In 2021, we expanded our collaboration with Emmy through the Reima Rescue service. On Reima App customers can buy and sell Reima and other kids clothing using Reima Rescue. In Finland, the service includes a free pick up service for the clothing the family wants to sell second-hand, to make it as easy as possible. Reima also sells Reima collection samples through Emmy, so they won’t go to waste
Lasten Liike: Keeping Kids Active
Lasten Liike is a joint effort of the Finnish Olympic Committee and the entire sports community, to support exercise and hobby possibilities for all children in Finland. The activities are arranged by local clubs and organizations, and entire movement is supported by like-minded companies.
Sports hobbies are proven to improve mental and physical health as well as social relations, but they can be pricey. We believe that all kids should have access to the hobbies they love without needing to worry about the cost. That’s why we support Lasten Liike.
Reima is one of the founding partners of Lasten Liike and has been a regular sponsor ever since. In August of 2021, Reima donated 4 Euros for every pair of shoes bought in Finland to Lasten Liike.

Accord: Improving health and safety in the garment industry
Reima is a signatory of International Accord, a legally binding agreement that helps to ensure no worker in the garment factories needs to fear fire, building collapses or other accidents that can be prevented with reasonable health and safety measures. Accord was originally founded in the aftermath of the Rana Plaza building collapse in 2013, to improve fire and building safety in Bangladesh garment factories. The new International Accord came into effect in autumn 2021, with the intention to expand health and safety programs to new countries.
