POINT3 is committed to sustainability throughout our entire supply chain. We evaluate our company’s environmental impact based on 3 critical factors:
DESIGNED TO BE WORN, AND WORN AGAIN
Sustainability starts with design and fabrication, making garments intended to last season after season. Using only best-in-class performance fabrics and rigorous QA testing standards, POINT3 products are designed to be worn, played in, sweat in, (washed please) and worn again.
Waste is the #1 impact the apparel industry has on our environment. Better Products = Less Waste.
A COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
2. SOURCING PARTNERS
POINT3 products are made only in factories that our employees have personally visited, inspected and met the team making our goods. This means that our sourcing partners follow all local laws regarding fair labor practices such as minimum legal working age, maximum working hours per week and minimum wage standards.
POINT3 sourcing partners share our commitment to sustainability using renewable resources like solar energy and recycled fabrics.
SINGLE ORIGIN SOURCING
After waste, emissions are the next largest impact the apparel industry has on our environment. POINT3 has a simple solution to reduce emissions – make goods as close as possible to where they are being sold. Over 80% of all POINT3 products are made by sourcing partners in the United States, Canada and Colombia.
Whenever possible, we practice single origin sourcing – that means all materials used to make a product (e.g. fabric, trims, etc.) come from the same region where that product is being assembled. Those products then travel directly to our warehouse in Atlanta, GA before they are sent to you.
