With a wind-powered office, recycled fabric, and minimal packaging, Wolven is a pioneer in the future of sustainability. For each sale, Wolven removes one pound of waste from the ocean. Wolven is carbon-neutral certified and a proud member of 1% for the Planet, which means that our carbon-footprint is offset by investments in projects like reforestation and we contribute at least 1% of our annual sales to organizations that are fighting to save the planet.
Carbon Emissions: Wolven invests in programs that offset the emissions we’ve created. To address our carbon footprint we’ve partnered with Climate Neutral.
Wolven utilizes two fabrics:
OEKO-Tex Certified Recycled P.E.T: An innovative, versatile fabric created by breaking down discarded plastics and recycling them into textiles and apparel. Breathable, incredibly soft, and durable.
Carbon Neutral Modal Fabric: A cellulose fiber derived from beechwood pulp- Beech trees propagate and regenerate naturally, so no artificial irrigation or planting is required—making beechwood forests a completely natural and more sustainable source of raw material. These carbon-neutral fibers require no toxic pesticides, no clear-cut farm land to grow, and substantially less water than cotton.
Packaging/Shipping: While there is no perfect solution to eco-friendly packaging, we keep our packaging as minimal and low-impact as we can. Wolvens are wrapped with a minimal piece of hemp twine and arrive to you in a reusable, 100% recycled poly mailer or bio-degradable paper box. We have considered choosing biodegradable poly mailers, but have made the choice to stick with recycled-poly, because the reality is that most biodegradable mailers made from bioplastic end up in the garbage and then a landfill, and may never have the opportunity to properly biodegrade
Production: Our activewear and swimwear is ethically made in China. Our Chinese manufacturing partner is certified by WCA for labor, wages, work hours, health, safety, and environmental practices. We have an 87% facility score. Why China? The current reality is that China is far ahead of the US in environmental sustainability initiatives such as clean energy production and recycled fabric manufacturing.
