Sustainable manufacturing is the creation of manufactured products through economically-sound processes that minimize negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Sustainable manufacturing also enhances employee, community, and product safety.
Continental Clothing Co. recognises that garment manufacturing is one of the most environmentally damaging and harmful industrial sectors on the planet, and takes decisive and often pioneering steps towards addressing the many negative impacts. Starting with the sourcing of raw materials, the Company ensures full traceability of all fibres, choosing low impact cotton, Tencel® Lyocel, bamboo viscose and recycled polyester in the Continental® range, 100% certified organic cotton in the EarthPositive® range, and recycled organic cotton blended with recycled polyester in the Salvage® range.
Continental Clothing Co. has been a vivid supporter of many high profile campaigns, including the Clean Cotton Campaign, Pick Your Cotton Carefully, and has been working with the Environmental Justice Foundation and the Pesticide Action Network for many years. Continental Clothing Co. is an active contributor to the International Working Group on the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The Company is certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard and the Global Recycle Standard.
Yarns and fabrics
Continental Clothing Co. controls the spinning process of almost seventy percent of all the yarns used in production as part of its vertically-integrated manufacturing structure, with the remainder being carefully sourced externally. All the yarns used by the Company are fully combed and ring spun.
THE QUALITY OF OUR YARNS AND FABRICS IS THE FOUNDATION TO DELIVERING THE HIGHEST QUALITY GARMENTS.All the fabrics are knitted at our in-house facilities, and dyed with GOTS approved chemicals, using low-water and controlled waste discharge processes, certified to OekoTex 100 Class I standard and conforming to REACH. Organic certified fabrics are dyed in our zero-discharge dyehouse, where all the water is recycled in a closed-loop system.
Carbon footprint reduction
The carbon footprint (CO2e) is the total carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and other greenhouse gases emitted during the cultivation and harvesting of cotton, fibre processing, textile production, packaging, transportation and warehousing. In January 2008, Continental Clothing Co. became the first company in the world to calculate the carbon footprint and place the Carbon Reduction Label on textile products. We have reduced the carbon footprint of 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, whereas a hooded sweatshirt saves up to 28 kgs. Having taken the greenhouse gas emissions to pre-industrial levels, all the EarthPositive® products carry the registered mark “Climate Neutral”.
Reso perchè troppo grande come taglia, ho cercato l'acquisto di un prodotto 100 cotone e l'ho preferito molto a questo, si vede la presenza del poliestere, putroppo.
Io ho preso il colore viola melange e la trovo molto vivace. La felpa è morbida e caldissima, quello che serve nelle giornate fredde. Veste grande, porto una 42 e la xs mi sta un pochino abbondante ma mi piace anche così. Un buon capo!!!
Questa felpa è talmente morbida, calda e comoda che ogni volta che la si indossa, sembra di venire abbracciati! Ho scelto il colore blu che è di una bellissima tonalità: mi fa sentire elegante e sportiva allo stesso tempo.
Felpa incredibile, ottimo tessuto: morbido e caldo.
Sapere che proviene da materiale riciclato rende il capo ancora più unico
Non conoscevo la composizione della felpa e sapere che è materiale riciclato è incredibile. Tessuto morbido e caldo. Una delle migliori felpe che abbia mai preso.
