The why?

  • Fashion is the second largest polluting industry in the world, the first being oil

  • Billions of pounds of textiles and clothes end up in landfills, which emit the potent greenhouse gas, methane

  • The textile segment uses some of the most hazardous materials known to mankind and adds to major water pollution

  • Our planet is affected by these problems along with the inevitable changing of climates and weather patterns

Jonathan Kringle Facts

What we look for from our suppliers and our manufacturers………..

The following organizations, companies and certification's are looking to improve international standards for either sustainability and/or socially responsibility and sometimes both. We at Jonathan Kringle believe that the more a consumer is aware of the damage caused by the fashion industry and our economic structures, together we can take the right steps, one sweater at a time.
