PIÑATEX®

The raw material for Piñatex® is sustainably sourced in the Philippines by pineapple farmers, creating an additional income stream for their communities. The team from the Labo Multi Purpose Farming Cooperative are proud to supply the fibre that becomes the Piñatex® used in our cardholders.

PIÑATEX®

  • No additional environmental resources required for raw material.
  • No toxic chemicals used in production.
  • Closed loop production – residual leaf biomass is used as natural fertilizer/biofuel.
  • Non-woven mesh is biodegradable.

LEATHER & SYNTHETIC ALTERNATIVES

  • Heavy use of resources including land, water, food and fuel.
  • Toxic chemicals used in tanning and production have a detrimental impact on health and environment.
  • High waste mass from tanning process.
  • Synthetic materials take many years to degrade, releasing toxins.

Fair Wear Foundation

From our T-Shirt Manufacturer:

"We all have a right to a safe and healthy work environment, a living wage, a legally binding contract. We all have a right to be free from discrimination and harassment, to join - or not to join - a labour union, to choose our work freely. We all have a right to fair and reasonable working hours. And our children have a right to go to school."

Here are the Fair Wear Foundation Standards:

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)

"Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The key criteria of GOTS, its quality assurance system and the principles of the review and revision procedure are summarised in this section." Global Organic Textile Standard.

Why we only use GOTS Certified Organic Cotton:

Carbon Trust

From our T-Shirt Manufacturer:

"We have reduced the carbon footprint of our EarthPositive® products by around 90% through a combination of innovative product design, low impact organic agriculture, efficiency in manufacturing, and by replacing standard grid electricity with renewable wind power. We do not use carbon offsets and our footprint calculations are certified by the Carbon Trust Certifications in the U.K.

It has been calculated that a single EarthPositive® T-shirt saves around 7 kilograms of CO2e!

Having taken the greenhouse gas emissions to pre-industrial levels, all the EarthPositive® products carry the registered mark “Climate Neutral."
