SUSTAINABILITY

The Sustainability Journey So Far....

ACAI is committed to providing high quality outdoor trousers and accessories for women, offering incredible style, fit and performance. Part of our commitment to our customers is ensuring our products are made with as little environmental impact as possible.

Integrating sustainability into a business takes time (particularly when you want to achieve it with integrity rather than a PR or Marketing Campaign) but like every adventure we must begin by taking our first steps, and we are proud of the steps we have taken so far.

ACAI Fabrics.....

At the heart of every ACAI product sits the interplay of performance, style, fit and environmental impact. Every time we design and create something new, these dynamics are at the forefront of our decision making process.

POLYLANA

Our ACAI Beanie hats are made with Polylana, an innovative yarn that is made with a blend of 30% virgin and 70% recycled materials, combined with Merino Wool. Each Beanie made with Polylana uses 5 fewer litres of water than a beanie made with 100% acrylic yarn, yielding water savings of 85%. Polylana is high performing, durable and warm, the perfect choice for our outdoor accessories.  

MERINO WOOL

Merino wool is a favourite material of the outdoor industry because of its naturally high performance, without the need for enhancing chemicals. Merino wool is soft against your skin, warm, breathable and moisture wicking. It’s also naturally antibacterial, and doesn’t absorb body odours, meaning your garments require far fewer washes. This material was the natural choice for our Merino Wool Hiking Socks.

NILIT HEAT

Our ACAI base layers are made using NILIT Heat, which is a unique yarn created with recycled coffee charcoal. This exceptional fibre offers superior thermo insulation, bacteriostatic properties, a powerful deodorising effect, and a sweat-free sensation for maximum comfort and all day performance.
An environmentally friendly yarn, NILIT Heat makes smart use of a natural surplus by integrating coffee charcoal (from coffee bean shells) into the nylon fibre.

ACAI Packaging & Branding....

PACKAGING

We are in the process of transitioning our packaging for your Skinny Outdoor Trousers.

All new stock arriving on our warehouse from November 2019 will be packaged in a mesh laundry bag. Not only does this reduce our use of plastic packaging, it also gives you something to help care for your garment.

As we continue to work on sourcing alternative plastic-free packaging, the current packaging we use to deliver your trousers is biodegradable and fully compostable.

The packaging that we use to protect our Beanie Hats, Socks and Base Layers is also fully recyclable.

BRANDING

ACAI Vegan Friendly PU Patch

All branded patches on the back of your Skinny Outdoor Trousers are made from a harmless leather alternative.

ACAI Production Standards

Our garments are produced in two locations – China and Portugal. Both factories have the following certifications:

 

In addition to selecting factories with the above certifications, our Creative Director has visited our factories on four separate occasions to work alongside factory staff and witness their working conditions and safety.

We are always striving for transparency within our production chain and we know there is much more we can and will do, so please stay tuned for further developments as our sustainability adventure unfolds.....
