Becoming a circular knit supplier | C2C

One of our suppliers in India produces Cradle to Cradle Certified (C2C) products
– a global measure of sustainable goods made for the circular economy.

The materials used in these garments are fully recyclable and made using renewable energy, resulting in no waste or shortages. C2C production has a positive impact on society, the economy and our planet, and we’re proud to offer it to our customers.

An update on sustainable packaging

We use three different types of FSC-certified paper (recycled, 100% FSC and mixed). We aim to take this broader and we’re well on track to achieving our goal of making all packaging FSC-certified by the end of 2020.

90% of Erve Group's packaging is FSC certified
