Ramblers Way gets C2C certification for clothing

In its commitment to creating a sustainable future, Ramblers Way has received Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certification for organic wool clothing. Ramblers Way offers 16 unique styles that are certified at the silver level – 10 for women and 6 for men – using the company's ultra-lightweight organic wool jersey in six low impact colours and silk thread.

"At the same time, this certification offers ongoing opportunity for Ramblers Way to continue improving and innovating, so we can create clothing that meets the lifestyle needs of conscious consumers," said Tom Chappell, founder and CEO of Ramblers Way.

Ramblers Way collaborated with MBDC, the world's foremost advisors in material health, product design and the Cradle to Cradle Design Framework founded by William McDonough and Dr Michael Braungart, to assess the clothing line against the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard. The independent certification guides designers and manufacturers through a highly in-depth evaluation of each product component and each stage of the supply chain in five environmental and social areas: material health, material reutilisation, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship and social fairness.

"Ramblers Way has set a new benchmark for clothing companies around the world," said William McDonough, co-founder of MBDC, the originators of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Program. "As the first company to launch a full line of Cradle to Cradle Certified organic wool garments, Tom Chappell and his team have once again demonstrated that size has little to do with might. I think Ramblers Way is an exciting company that surprises and delights by turning its values into value for their customers and all future generations."

"Ramblers Way wool is treated with natural enzymes to make it machine washable, and has never been subjected to the harsh chlorinated, industry standard process known as 'Superwash'. As a result, Ramblers Way's 4 oz. (less than 140g/sq. meter) fabric boasts superior softness and is the most lightweight jersey knit wool on the market. Ramblers Way 100% organic wool clothing certified to the GOTS and C2C standards is also made without harsh chemicals using some of the cleanest, low impact commercial dyes available. Therefore, while a typical synthetic t-shirt may take up to 60 years to decompose in nature, a wool t-shirt can decompose in less than six months," Ramblers Way said in a press release.

"Our goal has always been to produce high-quality clothing that stays in your wardrobe for years to come. We are also constantly rethinking how to embrace designs that aren't simply 'less bad' but also 'more good,''' said Nick Armentrout, supply chain director at Ramblers Way. "C2C and GOTS reinforce our commitments to sustainable agricultural, fair social practices, clean water standards, and end of life product requirements – a true circular path from the earth to the earth."
