Sustainability - CSR Intern


Do you love sustainability, circularity and fashion put together? Then you might just love HNST. 

The fashion industry has lost itself in an ever-rising pace of production and consumption, disrespecting people, and planet along the way.  We believe that feeling good is as important as doing good. Therefore, we make apparel like all apparel should be made, without compromising on style, quality, or sustainability. The product with the lowest impact is the one that already exists, that’s why the raw materials of our products are worn out clothing.

To support our organization, we’re looking for a Sustainability Intern to join our team.
