With all the care we put into sourcing fabric, designing clothing with a low ecological footprint and reducing our carbon footprint by producing in Canada, we wanted to up our game with packaging that also reflects our values. We’re excited to announce that as of September 2018, all Jennifer Glasgow orders are being shipped in FSC certified, acid free tissue paper, 100% compostable mailers and recycled paper thank you cards.
In the future, we strive to establish new relationships with North American textile suppliers as well as continue to source the best sustainable textiles from all over the globe keeping in mind the transportation, agricultural impact and health and welfare of the people involved. We recognize there are few Canadian suppliers available to us who are making products that meet the requirements of recognized ecological textile standardization bodies. However, the Canadian sourcing companies we work with have our mandate in mind every time they present us with organic, natural and sustainable textiles. Thank goodness for these drivers of sustainable fashion!
As more research is done on textile production and its environmental impact, new information is raised on the sustainability of existing fabrics. With this comes new challenges that we are excited to tackle and keep you updated on.
