Recycled, renewable and non-toxic materials do not mean substandard durability or performance.
We are proud to incorporate recycled and bluesign®-approved materials into our products — it helps keep harmful chemicals out of our environment while maintaining the high quality and performance we're known for.
EVERY TIME WE CHOOSE RECYCLED MATERIALS OVER VIRGIN MATERIALS,
WE REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT BY 45-50 PERCENT.
Used worldwide, bluesign® is a system that manages the impact textile production has on chemicals, people, factories and our environment. Materials carrying the bluesign®-approved label meet strict ecological and toxicological requirements. We are incorporating as many bluesign®-approved fabrics as possible and submitting materials to third-party labs for analysis and spot checking.
Every time we choose recycled over virgin materials, we reduce our carbon footprint by 45-50 percent.
Recycling diverts material away from the waste stream by keeping it out of landfills and oceans, and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators. It lowers dependence on petroleum as a source for raw materials, promotes recycling streams and uses less energy than virgin counterparts, resulting in lower emissions. Products produced from recycled polyester have the potential to be continuously recycled, promoting a closed-loop system.
We use the Global Recycled Standard [GRS], an international voluntary product standard, for third-party verification of our high-quality, durable recycled content.
PACKAGING & DISPLAYS
When we consider our environmental impact, it's necessary to include packaging. We've shifted to using 100% recycled and recyclable polybags [LDPE 4]. We are also using either recycled or Forest Stewardship Council [FSC]-certified cartons and hangtags.
