Superstainable® is a Danish label with essential outdoor items, made with respect for people and the environment. Supersustainable makes well-considered choices in the context of sustainability. For example, they consciously choose not to produce the end product in Europe, because all materials come locally from Turkey and China. Emissions would increase by 70% if they opted for production in Europe.
Fair trade: The items are made fair trade in Turkey and China in factories with a GOTS, Oeko-Tex and SA8000 certificate, a leading certificate when it comes to social production. The factories are also affiliated with the Fair Wear Foundation, which monitors fair working conditions.
Environmentally friendly: The clothing is made from GOTS certified organic cotton or recycled materials and Supersustainable also uses small amounts of non-mulesing, organic wool.
Good cause: Supersustainable supports the charities Plastic Change, EcoTree International and WILD Nature Foundation.
