Sustainable sportswear… it fits perfectly for whole the world

In an age where fast fashion retailers and even luxury labels are being accused of burning heaps of perfectly wearable clothing, the term ‘recycled fashion’ is becoming even more important than ever before.

Re-using clothing items or fabric to make new products is far preferable than continuing to fuel a wasting based fashion system.

But, what are important brandings doing in this matter?

Vans sets new sustainability targets to reduce environmental impact

To achieve its sustainability vision by 2030, Vans is committing to ensure that 100 percent of its top materials, including rubber, cotton, leather, and polyester are responsibly sourced, renewable, or recycled.

On the brand’s website, Vans added: “Reimagining the materials we use in our products is essential for our sustainability. This means using responsibly sourced natural materials as well as finding creative ways to recycle and reuse back synthetic materials in our products.”

Vans will also look to reduce its carbon emissions by 30 percent, which will be done by piloting and scaling regenerative, recycled and responsibly sourced materials covering 85 percent of the brand’s materials.

In addition, Vans also aims to eliminate all single-use plastic packaging and reduce waste at “every point of its business model” by 2025. This will be achieved by removing all plastic shopping bags from its retail spaces by the end of 2021 and by minimizing all remaining packaging.

The North Face will make more recycled, renewable gear to help save the planet

The North Face announced new commitments meant to give used gear a second life, create sustainable products, and hold the brand accountable for lessening its impact on the planet.

While TNF is the world’s largest outdoor apparel company, it is not the only major label to debut new sustainability initiatives, as previously seen with Vans.

The brand has pledged to create the best performing products for exploration, all while using “recycled, renewable, and regenerative materials that leave an ever-smaller footprint on the planet.”

Dubbed “Exploration without Compromise,” the brand’s latest sustainability initiative aims to make 100 percent of its materials recycled, regenerative, or renewable by 2025.

To carry out its recycled material goal, The North Face is actively transitioning all its top synthetic apparel fabrics, like polyester and nylon, to recycled content. The brand also plans to offer products made of recycled cotton, including scraps that might have gone to waste previously, while all single-use plastic packaging will be eliminated by 2025.

All these goals lead to one bigger achievement for the brand: circularity.

With its lifetime warranty and Renewed program, TNF already repairs and refurbishes used or damaged garments so they can be used again.

Both companies, TNF and VANS will be assisted through partnerships with Terra Genesis International, who create regenerative rubber and through Indigo Ag who supplies cotton.

That is one of the reasons why in Bora Services we are proud to be the biggest sub-distributor of both brands in the Caribbean. Earth’s natural resources protection and recovery are essential matters that companies should address with high responsibility, and in Bora Services this responsibility is also part of our mission.

Join us, to save our world! Sustainable sales are now much easier!
