Vantage Apparel Partners With Sustainability Nonprofit 1% For The Planet
Supplier Vantage Apparel (PPAI 113235) has partnered with 1% For The Planet, a global organization that connects businesses to support environmental organizations, and has pledged to donate one percent of decoration sales from Patagonia items, and one percent of sales from its future Recycled and Climate Collections to support nonprofits focused on environmental and sustainability causes.
“In an effort to increase ethical sustainable practices, we are thrilled to be partnered alongside an alliance that will essentially promote valuable environmental practices in the workplace and increase preservation of our environment,” says Ira Neaman, CAS, the company’s president. “By 2020, we plan to manufacture several styles with recycled fabric, including men’s and women’s polos, shirts and hoodies.”
Participating in 1% For the Planet is an extension of the Avenel, New Jersey-based supplier’s mission for operating in a responsible and sustainable manner with respect for the environment. According to the company’s news release, recognizing that businesses, consumers and citizens throughout the globe all have a responsibility to the planet, Vantage now has a partner and alliance that shares a mutual commitment to the protection and restoration of the planet. The new eco-friendly Vantage styles are scheduled to hit the market this November.
