The new report released in July shows the steps that Stanley/ Stella is taking to improve its supply chain and global footprint.
Jean Chabert, founder and CEO, said: “We have some ambitious plans for the future, which we are excited to reveal: we are committing to pay the workers in our CMT factories a living wage by 2025, and to be Climate Positive by 2030… or even earlier.”
One such step highlighted in the report is the use of recycled cotton. As a champion of organic cotton and the use of recycled polyester, Stanley/ Stella is now also embarking on a circular economic model by transforming its own organic cotton fabric cutting waste into new T shirts and sweatshirts.
The RE-creator and RE-blaster are made using 50% recycled organic cotton taken from cutting waste and 50% virgin organic cotton.
The sustainability mindset applies not only to the factories where the garments are produced, but to the HQ in Belgium. Electric bikes are provided to staff to reduce the reliance on cars and public transport, office snacks are sourced from local suppliers and reusable water bottles are used to avoid plastic waste.
