WE DON’T WASTE THE WASTE

We consider waste as a valuable resource that reduces the amount of rubbish going into landfills or even worse, ending up in our rivers and oceans.

We have all seen how much plastic debris there is already floating around, seriously damaging marine wildlife. Soon there could be more plastic than fish.

Our SALVAGE brand is made entirely from raw materials derived from waste: recycled organic cotton blended with recycled polyester that comes from used plastic PET bottles. PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate – the most common thermoplastic polymer.

How many plastic bottles go into each Salvage product?

The numbers below represent an average of standard 1.5-litre water bottles.

EarthPositive achieves Detox To Zero

We are one of the first brands in the world to meet the strictest environmental criteria of the Greenpeace DETOX Campaign.

The EarthPositive supply chain has passed the Detox To Zero audit, and the products have become compliant with the Greenpeace Textile Procurement Standard. We are the second in the world, and the first outside Europe supplier to be approved under the strict standard.

The standard focuses on the chemical inputs and outputs throughout the supply chain, requiring the completion of extensive laboratory testing of the wastewater and sludge in our zero-discharge wet processing plant in India, ensuring conformity in accordance with the DETOX TO ZERO Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL).

The textile industry is the second largest polluter of freshwater worldwide.

Up to 3500 chemical substances are used to turn raw materials into textiles. Approximately 10 % of these are hazardous to human health or the environment.
