Earth Day 2020 Follow-up: WAYB Attains RWS Certification
This Earth Day, WAYB made a commitment to ensure our supply chain will become Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certified by the end of 2020. Well, the results are in and we’re proud to share that our entire supply chain has officially attained RWS certification!
We’ve worked with all of our suppliers -- from farms and processors, to our manufacturers and distribution center -- to commit to the rigorous system of documentation to trace our wool throughout the entire process. This requires coordination on all levels and we’re fortunate to have committed, transparent partners that share in our vision of building a more responsible supply chain. Most importantly, this will have a sustained impact on the welfare of the sheep we source from and the land they graze on.
With RWS certification, WAYB fans can feel extra good about the Pico’s wonder material - AstroKnit mesh. Made of a wool-polyester blend, AstroKnit is inherently flame resistant with no added chemicals thanks to the flame resistant qualities of wool. And now that wool has got some extra credentials!
We are proud we attained RWS certification, and will continue to build on this to further our mission to “raise the bar on innovative products that are better for people and the planet.”
