At Softline Brand Partners, sustainability is at the heart of our manufacturing process. We take pride in our responsible approach to sourcing and manufacturing, ensuring every step aligns with our commitment to the environment and social responsibility. Here’s how we prioritize sustainability:
Sourcing and Manufacturing
- Ethical Leather: We source our leather from tanneries certified by the Leather Working Group, using leather made from American cattle.
- Eco-Friendly Canvas: Our canvas is 100% cotton, dyed, and treated with a non-hazardous water-resistant finish from the United States.
- Upcycled Leather Goods: We transform leather remnants that are typically discarded into beautiful, durable products like our keychains, minimizing waste and maximizing resourcefulness.
- Local Supply Chain: Our local supply chain ensures that much of our leather comes from midwestern cows, tanned at a local tannery, and our products are made and shipped from our factory in Minneapolis.
- Energy Efficiency: Our factory is equipped with energy-efficient LED lighting, and we maintain vintage machinery to reduce our environmental footprint.
- Safe and Inclusive Workplace: We provide a safe, clean, and inclusive workplace for our team members, ensuring fair wages and offering 401K savings options.
- Donating Leather Remnants: We donate leather remnants to local schools and arts organizations, promoting creativity and reducing landfill waste.
- Environmental Impact: In 2022 alone, we donated 966.8 pounds of materials that would have otherwise become landfill waste, contributing to a greener future.
- Supply Chain Transparency: We are committed to increasing traceability and transparency, ensuring responsible sourcing and manufacturing practices.
- Culture of Learning: We value education and continuously challenge ourselves to learn and grow, staying at the forefront of sustainable manufacturing practices.
- Product Longevity: By caring for your leather goods, we ensure their life extends beyond traditional promotional gifts, reducing unnecessary waste.
