the wayre way
Let's face it, the textile industry is polluting the planet and we're all part of the problem. Good news is, we can all be a part of positive change by opting for sustainable innovations. At wayre, we look at the full life cycle of our product and make every decision based on what is best for the planet and for you. From raw fiber to when wayre lands on your doorstep - we're laser focused on a minimal footprint. We are thorough about sustainable practices in our manufacturing, material choices, to water usage for every item we sell and improving our practices along the way.
From raw fiber Made from our Bluesign certified (aka no toxic stuff), eco-friendly woven blend of reclaimed post-consumer plastic bottles collected from landfills in Taiwan and recycled spandex. Our Like-silk & Aire-flex fabrics give a second life to waste otherwise polluting our planet. That’s a full circle moment. Bluesign® is the highest and most rigorous sustainability certification in the textile market that approaches sustainable efforts holistically from factory floor to finished goods. They mean business & so do we.
Our eco-efficient water recycling process while creating our fabrics use less water than traditional production, like waaay less. We only use 20 liters to the yard. That’s 2,680 liters of water saved compared to the average cotton t-shirt. Told you it's way less.
We are constantly making improvements to our fabric, raising the bar for sustainable textile standards and discovering cutting edge sustainable technologies.
less water waste
Our apparel mailers are 100% curbside recyclable and are made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials. We’ve evaluated hundreds of solutions to determine which packaging options are the most eco-friendly considering carbon usage in transit to end of life cycle, and paper it is. Paper is naturally biodegradable and curbside recyclable. It’s a win win for us and the planet. Plus, we fulfill all wayre orders in our own wayrehouse, which allows us to have a hands-on approach to energy efficiency and keep a keen eye on waste management.

how we're growing
As a small, family-owned business we must be resourceful in how we do our work. We partner with like-minded climate change activists who teach us about sustainable innovations and push us to do better, because we must.
We’re working on becoming climate neutral and B Corp certified as soon as possible, taking a hard look at all of our processes and supply chain to become certified lean and green. Authentic transparency is important to us because green washing has become all too common. Until then, you can guarantee we're doing all we can to practice sustainable sustainability.
