Waste Saved

Organic

We have chosen to work with 100% GOTS (https://www.global-standard.org) certified cotton and dyes as they are better for the planet and better for your skin. Traditional cotton uses 25% of the world's pesticides and that is polluting water sources globally. Organic practices reduce water usage and employ better land management practices. Organic practices can save up to 60% of water over traditional cotton.

Manufacturing

In addition to the significant benefits of eliminating landfill waste, we are investing heavily in new manufacturing strategies. By building our own production facilities we minimize material wastage and avoid overproducing. We are also utilizing renewable energy and are designing innovative water reclamation programs which significantly reduce our footprint. Our long term goal is to create a world-class zero waste facility that sets a new standard for manufacturing globally. We look forward to having you visit.

Packaging

We are focused on minimizing packaging and packaging waste. We do not use any hang tags on our products and all packaging is recycled and recyclable. We do not use polybags in our manufacturing or warehouse and have created a special process for storing product to keep it clean, dry and poly-free. Specifically, our mailers are 100% recycled and recyclable PET bags from Eco Enclose (https://www.ecoenclose.com). These are reusable so you can put your returns in the bag you receive with your fresh tees. When they come back to us, we will recycle. Our goal is to move toward a more durable recycled and recyclable packaging, so stay tuned for updates.

Carbon Offset

Shipping is a concern and we are partnering with BP and their Target Neutral program to reach carbon neutral status (https://www.bptargetneutral.com/uk/). We are currently performing a carbon assessment and will take appropriate steps to meet the PAS 2060 standard for carbon neutrality. We initially thought it a little strange to work with an oil company, but this program has excellent standards and offset contribution programs. We are in the initial carbon study.

Community

Community is core to our ethos and this applies to our membership community and our employee community. We have strict wage minimums, generous benefits and personal leave policies, and aim to provide safe, rewarding and empowering work environments for all who interact with For Days.
