ARVIN: FRIEND OF THE PLANET

Sustainability isn’t a fad or gimmick for Arvin. It’s the only way we work. We’ve started small: socks and underwear. But we’ve got big plans to develop the most sustainable and complete line of apparel and accessories ever made. Here’s how we’ll make it happen.

Recover

We start by recovering recycled used clothing, fabrics, and textile scraps. That means we don’t rely on water and energy dependent cotton farms or production facilities. This is where every Arvin product begins, and where every Arvin product returns to.

What this does:

  • Saves fresh water
  • Lowers C02 emissions
  • Reduces landfill waste
  • Eliminates the use of energy-dependent farms and facilities

Return

We gently return all recycled clothing and fabrics to their most basic, original form - fiber. We combine these recovered materials with other recycled or responsibly sourced yarns to create a versatile and expressive range of products. From super soft socks to the most comfortable underwear you can buy, the possibilities are endless.

What this does:

  • Eliminates the use of toxic dyes
  • Creates expressive textile colors
  • Generates a wide range of fabric types

Repeat

Wear out your Arvin Goods, drop them off at a material recycling center, and the loop continues. By building every Arvin Goods product from recycled inputs, we’re able to create an ongoing, closed loop of apparel sustainability. No farms, no processing, and repurposed waste allow us to make fresh new Arvin Goods. 

As we scale Arvin to be bigger and bigger we will build direct take-back programs with our partners to even further streamline our closed loop ambitions.
