What does each of these areas of tracking entail or mean?
Materials – This includes fabrics, trims and packing materials such as hangtags, polybags and boxes.
Manufacturing – This is based off of the cutting and sewing length of fabric used to produce the product, including any excess fabric.
Transportation – Takes into consideration all Inbound (factory to our warehouse) and Outbound (our warehouse to buyer) shipping methods and distance.
Product use – Should be thought of as Product Care for our products. Our standard care is Machine Wash Cool, Machine Dry, No Ironing.
End of life – This is measured containing three categories. Repair, Recycling, and Re-wear. Our products were not designed for repair even though we provide repair patches, buttons, and zippers for customers to repair, so it is still in an exceedingly small scale. We do not currently have a recycling or re-wear program, but are planning to work towards building a re-wear program soon.
