As a commitment towards our goal of producing the most sustainable and responsible range of products we can, we have signed up with the Green Business Bureau. The GBB allows us to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability by providing us with the tools we need to self-assess our credentials and continuously and honestly review the impact our product manufacturing choices have on the environment and the employees that make them. We believe this honest approach will lead us towards becoming one of the most responsible independent sportswear brands.
Our fabrics and yarns are already sourced from some of the most prestigious and responsible producers in the world, such as MITI in Italy, Payen in France, and Eschler in Switzerland. Wherever possible the textiles we source will already meet the criteria set by independent authorities such as Bluesign® and OEKO-TEX®. We must also ensure that the practices of our factories meet the strictest guidelines. Further, as an American brand, designing products in a country where Triathlon began, we cannot begin to sell our products in the state of California without meeting the strict criteria of its own authority. California Proposition 65 Compliance is a California law created to protect its residents and their drinking water sources from toxic chemicals and to inform its citizens about exposure to them. This means our products must not contain chemicals of a level that exceed those set out by the Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.
Responsible packaging is also an area of focus and we ensure that our products are packaged with materials that have either had a previous life, can be re-used, or be easily recycled through curb-side services.
Features of our packaging include:
