sustainability

since launching recycled yarns with repreve in 2020, we’ve continued to imbed that thinking in all of the sourcing we do. recycled yarns are now found in nearly 100% of the line up from our caps to buckets to beanies to our NSBCollection. we know we have a long way to go but we continue to work hard to deliver better in every aspect of what we’re offering.

 

Repreve –

for 2022, we’ve increased our use of high quality repreve fibres throughout the lineup with over 85% of the collection being certified repreve. in addition, 60% of our certified caps are made with only repreve recycled polyester.

   Fair Trade Certified™ –

one of the biggest steps forward for us goes beyond the fibres and the fabric. as of our first delivery in 2022, the majority of our headwear line up is now Fair Trade Certified™. by working with Fair Trade Certified™ factories, we support better working conditions for the people who craft our products. those factories must adhere to rigorous social, environmental and economic standards to protect the health and safety of the workforce. our community is not just those who purchase our products but also those building them.

our NSB t-shirts and tank tops are made of 40% certified recycled polyester / 60% certified organic cotton.
