JAX Conservation

Initiatives, Services, and Commitments

Companywide, JAX seeks ways to make positive contributions toward resource conservation and environmental protection. JAX prioritizes brands which value conservation and minimize their negative ecological impacts. JAX has reduced its fossil-fuel energy use, the CO2 footprint of employee commutes, and recycled millions of pounds of material.

 

Many brands we carry share our commitment to conservation.

They are chosen because they support environmental efforts that we believe in, which help leave this planet a little better off.

Uses Organic Materials

Uses organic cotton, hemp, tencel, recycled and sustainable stretch polyester, recycled cotton, recycled wool, and lenzing modal (cellulosic fiber from renewable beech trees)

 

Bluesign® Certified Fabrics

The bluesign® system takes into account the use of energy, water, chemistry, emissions and worker safety during fabric production. Specifically, the bluesign® system monitors efficient use of resources during the “Dyeing and Finishing Process” of fabric production. The dyeing and finishing stage alone uses many resources: 85% of water, 80% of energy, and 65% of chemicals that are used to produce a single garment are used during this process. The bluesign® system audits this process to ensure that these resource are being used in the most efficient way. They rely on a 5 principle system to determine whether a fabric is up to sustainability standards. As of Spring 2019, we have 49 styles made from blueisgn®-approved fabrics – 1/3 of the spring line!
