WE OPT FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIALS AND CERTIFICATION!


On our journey towards more sustainability, we replace conventional raw materials with more sustainable, ecological ones. 


Part of our collection is already developed with sustainability in mind. It is now under consistent expansion with the aim of being 100% sustainable by 2030.


In order to meet our own and our customers' requirements in terms of sustainability and traceability, we have been certified for the "GOTS" (Global Organic Textile Standard) seal as well as for the "RWS" (Responsible Wool Standard) and the "Global Recyled Standard" seal in 2020. More information about this you can find below!

Cotton

BETTER COTTON

Since April 2020, JOOP! has also been a proud member of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI). Better Cotton is sourced through a mass balance system and is not physically traceable to the final products. BCI farmers benefit from the demand for Better Cotton in the same quantities as we procure.


We have set ourselves the goal of using predominantly sustainable raw materials in our collections, which we identify by self-created brand icons on the product. By 2030 we aim to source 100% more sustainable cotton, and at least 50% based on Better Cotton (BCI), organic cotton and GOTS-certified cotton by 2025.

RESPONSIBLE WOOL

JOOP! is using an increasing quantity of mulesing-free merino wool in its knitwear and ready-to-wear collections, such as the knitwear basics – a decision that upholds animal welfare and meets our desire for more sustainable, animal-friendly product quality.


Mulesing is a technique used on young merino sheep in order to prevent infestation of the animal’s wool with fly maggots. A section of skin is removed around the animal’s tail, which is often the site where the flies lay their eggs. Because the skin is often removed without anaesthetic or follow-up care and the scar often becomes inflamed, this process is painful and distressing for the animals. This type of fly is found throughout Australia but not in countries such as Uruguay, Patagonia, South America , South Africa, Spain and Portugal, which means they are able to guarantee mulesing-free merino wool. That is why we source our merino wool exclusively from countries that can guarantee mulesing-free wool.


There is as yet no internationally recognised mulesing-free certificate. Certificates such as GOTS, RWS and ZQ Merino, however, guarantee animal welfare and prohibit mulesing in their standards.

LEATHER

Since 2015, we have consistently refrained from using fur from fur farming in our jackets, hoods and caps, for example. Our exclusive leather jackets are made using strictly selected leather and fur from livestock.

JOOP! also renounces the use of real down. Instead, we use highly functional and partially recycled filling materials that are even superior to conventional down in terms of moisture management, washability and comfort.

PACKAGING

Our commitment to using more sustainable resources not only applies to our collections, but also to our packaging material.

Since 2022, our JOOP! bags have been made exclusively using recycled material and natural, biodegradable dyes. For the delivery of our online orders to wholesale customers, we use FSC-certified boxes by GREENCO and mailing bags with PVC-free, recyclable adhesive tapes.

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS), founded by the charity Textile Exchange, is a voluntary, globally recognised standard. The GRS pursues the aim of increasing the proportion of recycled materials used in products and also includes requirements regarding the additives used in GRS products and regarding guidelines on environmental management and social responsibility within the company. Products certified to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) contain (independently) verified recycled materials. Furthermore, companies must have fulfilled social, environmental and chemical requirements in the production chain (at every stage of the supply chain), from the recycler to the finished product. https://textileexchange.org/standards/recycled-claim-standard-global-recycled-standard/
The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), founded by the charity Textile Exchange, is a voluntary, globally recognised standard for wool products that aims to protect the sheep and the land on which they graze. It applies to animal welfare in terms of sheep farming and applies to all sheep breeds around the world. Mulesing is strictly prohibited and great importance is attached to sustainable farming and soil preservation in conjunction with sheep breeding, as well as to the transparency of the supply chain, including traceability from the source to the finished product. RWS audits the requirements in terms of animal welfare and sustainable farming practices in the wool industry, from the source to the finished product. https://textileexchange.org/standards/responsible-wool/

The internationally renowned textile certification Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) indicates that a piece of clothing has been manufactured in an environmentally friendly and socially sustainable way throughout the entire production chain – from cultivation to retail. The textile standard covers the cultivation, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, retail and sale of all textiles that contain at least 70% certified organic natural fibres and differentiates between “organic” products (95% to 100% organic natural fibres) and “made with x% organic materials” (70% to 94% organic natural fibres). In GOTS products, both fibres from controlled organic cultivation (kbA) (e.g. cotton) and from controlled organic farming (kbT) (e.g. Wool) may be used.   www.global-standard.org
The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global non-profit organisation and the biggest sustainable cotton initiative in the world. BCI unites people and organisations from the cotton industry – from the cotton fields to the shop – with the aim of promoting measurable and constant improvements for the environment, for farmers and for the economies of cotton-producing regions. The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) educates farmers in the efficient use of water, in soil health and how to respect natural habitats, reduce the use of harmful chemicals and ensure humane working conditions. www.bettercotton.org
