How your water bottles become our fabric
The process of converting PET into rPET requires much less energy than in the case of normal poly, in fact, it takes 33-53% less energy! That’s a huge difference! By using more recycled polyester, we can reduce our dependence on petroleum as the raw material for fabrics. Also, by diverting PET bottles for this process, we reduce landfills which creates less soil contamination, air and water pollution. Thank you for taking a small step to help the earth!
Fashion is not just about the latest trend, but holds tremendous capacity to spark change that can influence the lives of millions and have a monumental effect on our planet. That's why Transcendent Active believes in limiting as much waste as possible. It's really quite simple. When a garment is cut, there is a large amount of fabric that goes unused. Normally, these scraps would wind up in the landfill, but we are getting creative on how we can give our fabrics a second life! Our zero waste initiative is built on looking good, feeling good, and doing good! Stay tuned for more Zero Waste product!
We all know that overseas garment production has changed the landscape of American history. What once was a career to many Americans has now been outsourced offshore. That is why we ONLY manufacture in America! We working closely with Downtown Los Angeles factory, LA Sewing Solutions. This father and son family owned business has been in operation since 2008. The factory is a clean, safe, and respectful work environment. Nolberto and Nolberto, Jr. are amazing to work with and their team is incredibly talented, paid well, and treated with the utmost respect.
Our commitment to sustainability goes all the way to the small details in our packaging. Transcendent Active is thrilled to partner with Colorado based eco-friendly shipping supplier, EcoEnclose. Our poly mailer bags are made with 100% recycled content, 50% post-consumer waste, and feature a dual adhesive strip for reuse. In the event you need to make a return, the second adhesive strip makes the process effortless.
The notecards sent along with purchases are constructed entirely from recovered trash, printed with eco-friendly inks, and then fully recyclable (with inks that are friendly to the recycling process). Everything is naturally biodegradable and compostable.
All of our garments are wrapped in white tissue paper made entirely from post-consumer and post-industrial content and sealed with the world's most sustainable sticker option made exclusively from 100% post consumer paper. The best part about our sustainable packaging is that everything is manufactured and printed right here in America!
