Every company has a responsibility to protect the environment by combatting the effects of climate change and reducing pollution. At Phoenox Textiles, we’ve been dedicated to producing sustainable products using ethical manufacturing processes for more than 15 years. We’re proud that many of the processes we pioneered have now become industry standards. Learn what we’re doing to look after the natural world.
We are fortunate to based in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. The surrounding countryside inspires many of the designs that feature in our product range. We also realise it needs our protection. That’s why we developed sustainability strategy, designed to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing reliance on natural resources and eliminating waste. We now operate as a zero-to-landfill factory and are constantly looking for new ways to improve our processes to further our green ambitions.
A commitment to using recycled materials
Nearly all the yarns we use comply with the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) – an international voluntary body that defines standards for the use of recycled materials. The cotton we use is 100% recycled. It’s just one of the steps we take to ensure that we place as little strain on scarce natural resources as possible.
Leaving a positive legacy
We want to preserve the planet, so we can keep manufacturing fine textiles in Yorkshire for the next 700 years. From sourcing ethical materials and utilising cleaner sources of energy, to constantly looking for new ways to recycle and reuse our products, our sustainability journey is at the forefront of every plan we make for the future.
