The best sustainable products. All in one place.

Dayrize Savings

Savings that matter.

Every single product on the planet leaves a footprint on the environment through its manufacturing process. At Dayrize we find the most sustainable products out there and then assess and score them. How? By collecting and crunching lots of data.

Cradle-to-Gate
We do it in a way that allows you to compare the impact of the product you’re looking at on our site to a similar standard product. We look at four key ‘Cradle-to-Gate’ product stages: raw material sourcing and extraction, manufacturing, distribution, and packaging – assessing water usage and CO2 emissions at every stage for both products. The difference between the two represent environmental savings, and when you buy from us, they add up, and you can keep track.

Savings add up
So, say you want to buy a t-shirt. If we know, based on our evaluation, that an average, conventionally manufactured t-shirt is responsible for 10 kg CO2-emissions; and the t-shirt you buy from Dayrize is responsible for 8 - then that’s an environmental savings of 2 kg CO2. Chalk that up. Next week you buy a dress and save 4kg CO2 – now your total environmental savings are 6kg. And so on. That’s what it means to buy good.

NB: Although we do a lot of number crunching to assess product savings, it is important to note that these savings are estimates - and some are much more accurate than others. Our categorization of “standard products” is based primarily on a 2019 study from the EU’s Joint Research Centre, which examined the typical environmental footprint of household goods in Europe. For some products – like t-shirts or jeans – we have very specific numbers against which we can compare a similar product sold on Dayrize. For others, like accessories or toys, we have to compare against the average product family or even category. Products can be good for people and the planet in all kinds of ways – and carbon and water savings don’t capture the full picture. A product that has organically-grown cotton contributes to caring for soils and reduces the amount of toxic pesticides put into our environment – but it might still have a higher carbon footprint. That’s why the Dayrize Score captures the many different ways that a product is sustainable.
