Everlane, a self-proclaimed arbiter of “radical transparency” in the apparel industry, is taking steps toward more sustainable textile manufacturing practices. The brand, which launched in 2011 with a revolutionary message about material and supply chain trace-ability, is now partnering with Bluesign, a textile production-focused auditing body. The organization works with brands and manufacturers to improve operations throughout their supply chains. Bluesign’s standards were developed in the interest of providing safe consumer products, reducing the impact of manufacturing on people and the environment, and promoting the responsible use of resources, according to the organization’s website. As a subscriber to the Bluesign System, Everlane’s textile production partners are subject to the group’s independent verification program.
