Yoga wear brands like PrAna, Adidas, and BaliniSports have now committed their entire supply chain to meet bluesign® standard, while already one third of Lululemon Athletica fabric mills are bluesign® system partners. Bluesign ® certification means that every part of the textile supply chain uses chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, production workers, and end-customers.
What sets bluesign® standard as the most respected in the industry is that the independent organization works closely with textile manufacturing facilities to analyzes their unique resource saving potential, optimizes the facilities processes and continuously reduces their overall ecological footprint. This in turn brings together the entire textile manufacturing chain to jointly reduce the ecological footprint of a responsibly acting textile industry.
PrAna’s partnership with bluesign® began in March 2012 with inclusion of a single certified facility and they have since required their entire supply chain to follow the bluesign® system substance list. Luluemon became a bluesign® system partner soon after in November 2012 and now ensures that the fabrics used in their products meet the system’s standards. BaliniSports follows and only work with bluesign® certified facilities since inception of the brand in 2013. All of BaliniSports products are manufactured, from start to finish, in bluesign® certified manufacturing facilities.
The bluesign® system is based on five principles: resource productivity, consumer safety, water emission, air emission and occupational health & safety. This basically means that every aspect of the manufacturing process -- what comes into the plants, leaves the plants, happens in the plant and what stays with the fabric -- is taken into account and held to rigorous standard.
Bluesign yoga apparel also brought attention to Hollywood celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner. As a consumer, you can feel good purchasing Bluesign certified products knowing that you’re giving yourself and the world the best opportunity to thrive. Everything is about living our dream while loving the Earth
