When it comes to our clothes, our mission is to create apparel that has the smallest environmental impact possible, is designed and produced to live in our customers’ wardrobes for years, and is priced to be accessible to everyone.
We achieve these aims by relying on sustainable fabrics like recycled yarns and cellulose fibres and consciously absorbing the cost of these materials rather than passing on those costs to you, our consumer, through higher prices.
83.5% of the total units produced in 2024 used sustainably preferred materials, out of which 55.8% of the units used certified recycled materials.
Transaction Certificate (TC) Process:
How It Works:
The seven step process is as follows:
- Cotton Ginner
- Yarn Spinning
- Fabric Production
- Garment Manufacturing
Why We Do It:
By tracking the chain of custody of the cotton in its various forms throughout the sourcing to manufacturing process, MPG is able to confidently state our cotton is sustainable.
How We’re Improving:
Mondetta/MPG will conduct in-depth DNA testing to identify the origin of the cotton it uses in its apparel. This will allow the company to determine whether the raw material has been sourced from a restricted zone, as per the US Forced Labor Prevention Act.
Our individual plastic bags are made from 100% recycled post-consumer materials to reduce our environmental impact wherever possible.
Opening ourselves up to OEKO-TEX® assessments allows us to ensure that our products are safe for our customers to use. OEKO-TEX® tests for harmful substances, such as heavy metals, pesticides, and carcinogenic dyes, that can be present in textile products. By certifying our products through OEKO-TEX®, we can assure our customers that our products are safe and free from harmful substances.
In addition to product safety, we also work with OEKO-TEX® to improve the sustainability performance of our supply chain. The certification process evaluates the sustainability performance of textile production processes, including energy use, water consumption, and chemical management. By working with OEKO-TEX®, we can identify areas for improvement in our supply chain and work towards more sustainable practices.
Ultimately, we work with OEKO-TEX® because it aligns with our company values and mission to create high-quality activewear that is made in a responsible and sustainable way. By being certified by OEKO-TEX®, we can demonstrate our commitment to product safety and sustainability to our customers and our workers.
Sustainable packaging remains one of the biggest challenges for all manufacturers. Any bag or box (no matter how recycled or biodegradable they are) is always worse than no package at all. That’s why we’re working with factories to reduce unnecessary individual garment bags, recycling unnecessary packaging at our facilities, and always looking for more sustainable alternatives.
