ARVIN: FRIEND OF THE PLANET

Sustainability isn’t a fad or gimmick for Arvin. It’s the only way we work. For 2017, we’re starting small: socks and underwear. But we’ve got big plans to develop the most sustainable and complete collection of goods ever made. Here’s how we’ll make it happen. 
  • Sustainability
    The materials used in Arvin Goods Basics requires zero new dyes or chemicals.
  • Sustainability
    For every 1kg of recycled cotton that we use, we are preventing 20kg of CO2 emissions.
  • Sustainability
    1 Kg of virgin cotton requires over 15,000 liters of water.
    Arvin basics upcycled materials used requires virtually ZERO water.
  • Sustainability
    Our unique source of materials runs on 50% solar energy Arvin is contributing to an annual savings of 145million kWh of energy per year.
  • Sustainability
    The process to make one pair of Arvin socks saves 150 liters of water. That is 40 gallons. Think about it.

RECOVER

We start by recovering and recycling 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 could return to.

WHAT THIS DOES:

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

Sustainability

RETURN

We gently return all of the recycled source material 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 fabrics. From super soft socks to burly packs, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

WHAT THIS DOES:

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

Sustainability

REPEAT

We can do it again and again. Wear out your Arvin socks, donate them back to us, and the Arvin loop continues. By building every Arvin product solely out of recycled products, we’re able to create an ongoing, closed loop of apparel sustainability. No farms, no processing, repurposed stuff, fresh new Arvin goods.

WHAT THIS DOES:

Creates a closed and sustainable apparel loop
Keeps Arvin outta landfills
