bluesign® approved aftercare from Granger’s
Granger’s welcome the Greenpeace report and support this, and any work to improve environmental standards in the outdoor industry. Granger’s has always been at the forefront of developing the most environmentally responsible products. We were the first company to develop water based products over 50 years ago and was the first aftercare company to be a bluesign® system partner, back in 2007. Currently over 90% of Granger’s products are bluesign® approved and we would strongly encourage all companies to work towards independent environmental standards such as the bluesign® stystem and ISO 14001.
All Granger’s products are free from PFOS and PFOA - Granger’s was one of the first companies to recognise the issues with PFOS and PFOA and stopped all production using C8 chemistry back in 2007. In common with most outdoor brands we believe that C6 chemistry currently provides the best, most environmentally friendly DWR available. Granger’s products allow the consumer to maintain the great performance they expect from their gear, year after year, and the longer the garment stays in use, the longer it stays out of landfill.
At Granger’s we always strive to use the ‘best available technology’. We are continually looking to develop new and innovative, environmentally responsible products that help consumers keep their products working like new.
About the bluesign® standard
The bluesign® standard is a widely accepted, reliable and proactive tool certifying the eco-friendliness of the entire textile production chain. Instead of focusing on finished product testing, the bluesign® standard analyses all input streams – from raw materials to chemical component, to resources. Prior to production, components are assessed based on their ecotoxicological impact. Potentially harmful substances can hence be eliminated before production even begins.
