FLŌA WORKS WITH LEADING MANUFACTURING AND FABRIC SUPPLIERS
WHO HOLD THE FOLLOWING CERTIFICATES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS
At FLŌA we take the quality and sustainability of our manufacturing supply chain very seriously.
Running an active wear business comes with its own responsibilities. The fashion and textile industry is one of the largest polluters worldwide and though FLŌA is small it is important that the contribution we make is a positive one.
The factory we partnered with to make the Backcountry base layer is in the process of applying for en EU labelled certificate to demonstrate that they are powered by 100% renewable energy (80% of which is solar).
Meanwhile the manufacturer of the All Action collection was given the responsibility by Puma to make Usain Bolt's running shirt and shorts for the Rio Olympic Games and implements environmental management procedures to ensure compliance across energy management, waste recycling, among others.
FLŌA sources its yarns from leading German supplier Suedwolle who recently achieved Level 3 (full compliance) in the European Outdoor Group’s (EOG) recently published Sustainability Charter.
Whilst the Dri Release fabric we use for the All Action is chemical free, the Merino wool make the Backcountry base layer from is sourced from their Mount Hesse merino sheep station located in the state of Victoria, southeastern Australia, and in 2011 joined bluesign® as a System Partner.
The bluesign® standard is a comprehensive Input-Stream-Management-System covering all environment, health & safety aspects within the textile manufacturing chain. Essentially the whole farm is fully sustainable, not just the wool.
Whilst we do what we can at FLŌA we appreciate we can always do more and we periodically review and asses our policies towards Sustainability. If you have any questions or require further information please feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
