SUSTAINABILITY

We are proud to have one the strongest environmental sustainability profiles among apparel manufacturers in the world.
 
We are driven to produce high quality products that are better for our health and the environment. While every manufacturing process impacts the environment, our goal is to reduce our overall impact by means of education, collaboration, and implementation of new and innovative materials and processes.
 
Our Fibers
Organic cotton, grown with no synthetic pesticides or insecticides, no GMO, non-toxic
Recycled cotton, made from “table waste” clippings during the cutting process. Sorted by color, no dyeing needed. Helps divert millions of tons of textile waste entering our landfills each year.
Recycled Polyester, made from post-consumer products such as water bottles, uses less energy, less virgin raw material. Diverts bottles and similar materials from landfills.
Tencel & Modal, man-made celluloses fibers with closed loop circuit recycling the solvent, less chemicals
 
Dyeing & Finishing:
We use low impact dyes and finishes. Our local dye house is Bluesign compliant and one of the most environmentally friendly dye houses in the world. On average, we use 40% less chemicals, 50% less electricity, 65% less water, 30% less natural gas, and  50% lower emissions compared to a typical dye house in United States. These saving are even greater when compared to dye houses operating in China, India, etc.
 
Non-Toxic Printing
Water-based inks, PVC and Phthalate free
 
Local manufacturing
Our entire manufacturing operation takes place within a 8-mile radius
 
Less Production Waste:
100% of the fabric scraps generated during the cutting process is recycled. This adds up to about 200,000 lbs. of material per year that doesn’t end up in the landfill. Additionally, we recycle all production byproducts such as boxes, yarn cones, poly bags, packaging material, pallets, paper, bottles, and cans.
