We care about the impact our products make on this Earth. Not only do we consider our environmental impact when creating and selling our products, we also take the fair treatment of all the people involved along the way very seriously. Below are the significant areas which we have taken strong steps towards offering products that perform in harmony with your mind and body as well as the planet.
HIGH PERFORMANCE RECYCLED FABRICS
We have worked closely with our US-based textile manufacturing partner to offer all Vision Lab Apparel products utilizing custom Repreve fabric blends which are created from recycled plastic waste consisting in large parts of plastic bottles from the ocean. Repreve is an amazing company that we are proud to align with. Learn more about their mission and the impact they are creating here: www.repreve.com. In 2015, our plastic bottle efforts lead to the recycling and repurposing of over 12,500 plastic bottles.
For each garment purchased, Vision Lab makes a donation to our tree planting partner to support 10 trees being grown in a developing country. This is truly a beautiful relationship that we are thrilled to be a part of and encourage others to support outside of these efforts. Trees for the Future is a US-based 501(c)(3) public charity that has planted millions of trees in thousands of communities across 19 countries since 1989. They strive to accomplish a remarkable mission: Trees for the Future is dedicated to planting trees with rural communities in the developing world, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future. We have contributed to over 10,000 trees being planted with this organization.
