The fashion industry produces over 90 million tons of textile waste per year. Our development team has made it their number-one goal to source premium, high-performance recycled fabrics to ultimately reduce our carbon footprint. We recognize that the idea of sustainability goes beyond our products and dives deeper into the ethics and processes in which these products are produced.
Our goal is to be 100% sustainable. From recycled fabrics to earth-friendly packaging, here are a few ways we've improved our approach:
We’re working deliberately to source and re-source fabrics for your favorite garments in recycled Polyester and Nylon.
Today, over 60% of our product line uses recycled components.
Our Divide Wind Jacket (pictured above) was designed with 100% post-consumer recycled MicroTek Supreme™ fabric across the front and shoulder panels and recycled Zero-Weight Mesh in the side panels and back for stretch and breathability.
Sustainable does not have to compromise great design or product. We currently utilize suppliers that are Bluesign and/or Oeko-Tex certified to guarantee that products like our Summit Raptor Bib and Alpine Jacket/Vest are safe, durable and environmentally responsible.
Our goal is to utilize certified fabrics for 100% of our products.
Some companies try to 'wow' their customers with an elaborate unboxing experience. Sadly, that experience produces a ton of waste and puts a serious strain on our fragile environment.
At Indy freelance, we have transitioned to recyclable packaging and smaller hang tags made from recycled paper as part of our ongoing commitment to reduce our carbon footprint.
