Using the most advanced technology, we’ve taken transparency to a next level. With blockchain technology and the highest industry standards certificates, we can prove your sustainability performance. Together we make your sustainability impact traceable, measurable and credible.
The Waste2Wear® blockchain system provides indisputable evidence that Waste2Wear® Fabrics are really made of plastic waste. The blockchain records the journey of the plastic waste bottles, step-by-step, to become a finished textile product and allows our customers to track each step in the value chain of the fabrics that they ordered.
At Waste2Wear we’re trained to translate this factual information in the blockchain into storytelling. Upon request, we provide QR-codes with each production order that shows to end-consumers the incredible journey their product has made.
Over the years we have supported customers in developing their impact story. It is a tangible added value that we inform and educate stakeholders about their sustainability efforts, accomplishments and objectives. We’re happy to help you, just get in touch: marketing@Waste2Wear.com
Our network of production partners share our values and objectives. This allows us to offer you the highest sustainability and recycling certifications upon request. For each production order, we can support your communication with an environmental impact report. This includes the Waste2Wear RA-3 Standard recycling assurance test.
The Waste2Wear® Recycling Assurance 3-Step Standard assures customers that our fabrics and textile products contain actual recycled plastic content. It also guarantees the number of plastic bottles used in a fabric. The test consists of three steps, 1) chemical analysis, 2) microscopic assessment and 3) document validation. When passed, a certificate is issued and together with the testing reports added to our database. All the documents can be accessed online by our customers.
Every company receives a Waste2Wear® RA-3 Standard certificate per production order, which includes a report on the environmental impact savings. We specify the number of plastic bottles recycled, water and energy savings.
We’ve worked with customers truly committed to sustainability to certify their complete value chain. With our know-how we unburden them throughout the process of getting these certifications realised, such as OEKO-TEX, BSCI and GRS (Global Recycling Standard).
GRS is the industry standard certification to verify recycled content in a product. It also verifies responsible social, environmental and chemical practices throughout its production. Waste2Wear has taken the GRS certification process to the next level by adding our network of partners, such as dyeing mills, garment factories, etc. This way, our complete value chain can be certified and the GRS certification logo on the final packaging is possible. This makes Waste2Wear unique in the textile and fashion industry. Check our FAQ to see the full list of certifications that we offer.
Producing at carefully selected suppliers in China and India, we have optimized transportation distances via boat and train between them and final destinations. Yet, we cannot avoid CO2 emissions here. Through our social partnerships, we offer our customers the possibility to join our carbon footprint offsetting program handled by Roots & Shoots Shanghai, an initiative by the Jane Goodall Institute.
When our customers join the program, their Environmental Impact Report will include the CO2 footprint of the transportation of the products and the number of trees that will be planted to offset these emissions.
