Recently the non-profit Textile Exchange (textileexchange.org) conducted a global voluntary benchmarking program called Corporate Fibre Materials Benchmark, which assembled information submitted by over 190 companies in fashion, footwear and home textile. Textile Exchange establishes “preferred” textiles standards in terms of sustainability across supply networks, offers best practices, and certified companies that align with global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), minimize climate impact and contribute to an equitable and circular economy.
Five Canadian companies have benchmarked and are leading our charge toward “nature positive, no regrets” textile sourcing.
Sanctuary Innerwear is one of them.
Because of my exclusive use of Lenzing TENCEL fabric and plants as dyes, as well as a firm commitment to local production, Sanctuary Innerwear has been awarded a Level 3 “Maturing” on the Material Change Index. This designation acknowledges "emerging leadership" in sustainability. I’m proud of my commitments and efforts toward doing things right.
