MADE FROM CERTIFIED GLOBAL RECYCLE STANDARD (GRS) FABRIC

We've chosen to disrupt this cycle of creation and destruction by re-purposing materials before they have an impact on our planet. 

Our activewear apparel lines are made from certified Global Recycle Standard (GRS) fabric - recycled nylon or recycled polyester, depending on the Collection. 

According to the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), more than 50% of the fabric content has to contain recycled material, in order for it to qualify as "recycled". We're currently at 77%!

Being GRS-certified also means that the production of the fabric has adhered to strict social, environmental and chemical standards.

 

Social Requirements

  • Production of the fabric has adhered to the social requirements stated in the GRS guidelines.

  • This includes the establishment of proper health and safety measures to protect its workers; the fair treatment, payment of wages and benefits to the workers; and more. 

Environmental Requirements

  • Production of the fabric has adhered to the environmental requirements stated in the GRS guidelines.

  • This includes efforts by the factory to continually reduce its energy and water usage; proper waste management techniques; and more.  

Chemical Requirements

  • Production of the fabric has adhered to the chemical requirements stated in the GRS guidelines, ensuring that only non-hazardous chemicals are used in the production process and that chemicals are disposed of properly too.
