Sustainability is at the core of our business model, integrated into every aspect of our operations, and we firmly believe that even the smallest actions can precipitate significant change. We carefully select vendors and manufacturers that align with our sustainability ethos, prioritizing green materials and manufacturing practices. Our production process is tailored to avoid overproduction and waste by producing in small quantities. Our fleece fabrics (OekoTex Standard 100), comprised of 80% Cotton and 20% GRS-certified rPET fabric, extracted from recycled plastic bottles, drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional polyester production.
In our bid to protect marine ecosystems, we created our athletics fabric from GRS-certified recycled Nylon derived from abandoned fishing nets. This initiative helps to prevent further pollution of the oceans by discarded fishing gear. Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging and delivery operations. We opt for minimal packaging, utilizing recycled or compostable materials wherever feasible.
We take pride in the ethical standards maintained in our factories, which consistently rank in the top percentile for workers' rights, occupational health and safety, environmental protection, fair wages, and ethical business behavior. We diligently vet our factories to ensure no child labor, bonded labor, or precarious employment is involved. We primarily manufacture our products in the USA, Honduras, and China, and despite common misconceptions about China's labor practices, we take pride in partnering with factories that provide safe working conditions and take care of their employees while utilizing their latest technological advancements, allowing us to produce our clothing more efficiently and sustainably. The Foreign Trade Association (AMFORI) performs annual factory audits at our partner factories in China to ensure our ethical standards are met.
We believe sustainability is a continuous journey and there is always room for improvement and will continue to make advancements in our sustainability efforts. By working together, we can bring about positive change and build a more sustainable future.
