Threads 4 Thought identifies itself as Sustainable, Ethical, and Impactful.
What T4T means by Sustainable:
- 100% of its products use the most eco-friendly raw materials & fabrics available. The company's recycled polyester is made from fibers spun from plastic bottles; its certified organic cotton is made sustainably and responsibly without the use of harsh chemicals and pesticides, making it better for the soil, water, farmers, and wildlife; and its ENCEL Modal fibers are extracted from naturally grown beech wood by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fiber process, which is self-sufficient in energy and recovers co-products from component parts of the wood.
- T4T's main factory recycles 80% of its industrial water, one of the
highest reuse rates in the world. (This results in a savings of 500 million gallons of water per year!)
- T4T forges lasting relationships and partners with some of the best
certified factories all across the globe.
- Through its partnership with Green Story, all T4T products produced are carbon neutral.
- Approximately 70% of production is packaged using WAVE Bags and
they are on the way to eliminating single use poly-bags. WAVE bags are made out of a bio-based polymer compound that comes from the raw material cassava. They dissolve and compost naturally in landfills and can be consumed safely by animals.
- T4T uses FSC certified paper for all of its branding materials, boxes that are made from recycled content and eco-enclose branded packaging for all of e-commerce shipping. At Threads 4 Thought, all of our packing materials are FSC Certified. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization that promotes responsible management of the worlds forests and ensures the highest social and environmental standards.
