Boardroom/Ecoapparel Join Bluesign Standard
Bluesign Technologies, based in St. Gallen, Switzerland, announced Boardroom Custom Clothing and Ecoapparel.ca of Vancouver, British Columbia are new brand members of the bluesign standard. The bluesign standard is an independent, international-quality standard aimed to serve people and the environment. It identifies responsibly acting textile industry suppliers. Bluesign technologies was founded in 2000. Since then, the bluesign standard has been adopted by different leading textile manufacturers, and it meets the general need to do something about sustainability, so that next generations can benefit from an intact environment, without compromising functionality, quality or design.
“We are proud to announce that we have gained a new brand member Boardroom/Ecoapparel.ca, which is convinced about our system. They want to reduce the environmental footprint of their products by implementing the bluesign standard in their supply chain,” said Detlef Fischer, vice president of bluesign technologies.
“From the natural and recycled fabrics we select for our apparel to assembly line operations, we are committed to the health, safety and preservation of the environment for our staff, our customers and the planet,” said Mark Trotzuk, president, CEO and lead fashion designer of Boardroom Custom Clothing and ecoapparel.ca. “We are very excited to partner with bluesign technologies, furthering our investment and education in improved sustainable business practices.”
The declared objective of the independent bluesign standard is to put a reliable and proactive tool at the disposal of the entire textile production chain–from raw material and component suppliers who manufacture yarns, dyes and additives, to textile manufacturers, retailers, brand companies and finally to consumers.
“We have always provided a safe and fair place to work and now that we have joined bluesign technologies, we are proud to offer an even higher standard of EHS (environment, health and safety) and socially responsible manufacturing to our clients,” said Trotzuk.
