STANDARD SUSTAINABILITY

WE'RE COMMITTED TO LOWERING OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT, AND EMPOWERING THE COMMUNITIES WHERE WE LIVE AND WORK.

THE ENVIRONMENT

The Fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry on the planet, being beaten only the the Oil Industry.  It generates $620 Billion USD a year, It takes 2,700 litres of water to produce one cotton t-shirt.  Australians dispose of 6000 kgs of textile waste every 10 minutes.

PEOPLE

There are two halves to true sustainability: the environment and people. We’re dedicated to ensuring safe working environments and fair compensation for the people in our global manufacturing community.

THE FUTURE

From 2018 Standard Socks will be made using Recover Uno,  Recover Blue, Tencel and Merino.  Recover are recycled cotton and polyester yarns made in Spain in sustainable supply chains.  Tencel is a lycocell yarn, softer than silk, made from wood pulp.  

Our promise is to use ECONYL, nylon made from recycled fishing nets and Amni Soul Eco an elastic corn based product, as soon as we are able.
