Sustana Meets Needs of Supply Chain Partners with New Sustainability Strategy | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

Sustana Group, a recycled fibers and paper products provider, is a supply chain partner for many companies that are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious, says chairman and CEO Fabian de Armas. With that in mind, the company has built a new sustainability strategy that will guide the company in its future business operations. The strategy focuses on environmental stewardship, workplace and communities, and a circular value chain. Sustana says it hopes to create a “sustainable, closed-loop fiber future,” and believes it can achieve this future through collaboration, transparency, and strategic decision-making and measurement.

It's hard to believe these stylish jackets were once plastic bottles

It's hard to believe these stylish jackets were once plastic bottles | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

One brand that is innovating through recycling is San Francisco-based Everlane. Over the past few years, it has become known for offering quality basics at reasonable prices, while operating with transparency on their ethical supply chain. Recently they announced a line called ReNew - outerwear, such as puffer jackets, parkas and fleeces - made entirely of recycled plastic bottles. The range of classic garments comes in a selection of neutral tones, with offerings for men and women.

EcoVadis's insight:

Clothing production consumes resources and contributes to climate change. Therefore making stylish jackets out of plastic bottles will reduce both the level of plastics and the negative impact  on climate. Today’s consumers are more environmentally conscious than previous generations and they’re increasingly calling for companies to make sustainability and corporate social responsibility a major part of their business practice.
