Sourcing sustainably from transparent supply chains
Consumers deserve to feel confident about the quality and safety of the products they buy. We are committed to transparency, responsible chemical use, and the sourcing of sustainably produced key raw materials that will reduce our environmental footprint.
More than two-thirds of today’s consumers view purchasing sustainable products as one of the key ways they can lead a purposeful life while reducing their impact on the world (Barkley Purpose Research, 2019). Our consumers have told us they are looking for more information on the sustainability of a garment at product level to help them make more informed choices.
