You are limitless, but the environment is not.
We are continuously working to become a business and a community that is more and more sustainable. This means that our product design, materials selection, production processes, and logistics are constantly shifting to have less of an environmental impact and more of a positive impact.
At Zensah, we're striving for sustainability. We're striving for a better future. Fight for change with us and feel good every time you push further and achieve more with Zensah.
Sustainability means thinking about the future and meeting our needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Part of our motivations for sustainability are thinking critically about how we produce each and every item, and how we can produce better products for a better world - balancing both our business goals and our goals for the planet.
At Zensah, we looking to find a balance to operate in harmony with natural resources. Because balance is good in all things, right?
We care because creating a better world matters to us. We care because our goal is to help keep you moving, performing, living, & thriving. We care because being limitless means we must be accountable, fight, & push harder for change. We care because our world matters & we are a part of ensuring its survival. We care also, because we care about you. Will you fight with us for greater change for the good of our planet?
Good. Let's get started.
Our goal is to reduce our impact on the planet and increase our positive impact by helping & supporting environments, conscious production methods, and our community.
We're not perfect, but we're getting there.
We're trying, growing, learning, and doing everything we can to have the positive impact we want to have. Thanks for coming on the journey with us.
Did you know that as of this year, 2022, our entire catalog of Limited Edition socks (that's right: no show, mini crew, & knee high) are now made with over 50% recycled materials. And this is just the beginning. We're transitioning more and more of the best-sellers you know and love to recycled materials and fibers that use less water, energy, and waste. So now you can shop for your performance favorites and feel like you're doing your part, because we're doing our part.
We choose our fibers not only for their performance features and durability, but also for their sustainability as well. Many of the fibers we use have important elements that make them inherently sustainable. Read about a few of our main materials below.
Merino Wool - Merino wool is a natural, renewable, biodegradable fiber that has special properties for breathability and temperature regulation.
Tencel - Tencel is a fiber that is comprised from wood fibers or pulp, making it natural and biodegradable.
Our Packaging- At present, the majority of our packaging is made from recycled cardboard. We aim to continue adopting recycled materials for the remainder of our packaging, as well as to continue to develop sustainable packaging and shipping components for our products. Not only do we put care and attention into our products, but also how they're packaged.
Most people don't know that seamless manufacturing is a near-zero waste process. Compared to cut-and-sew techniques, seamless produces little to no excess fabric waste.
Producing an item with the seamless method is an “additive” rather than “subtractive” process. This means we make products by adding material on knitting machines until the garment is completed.
All of Zensah's socks, sleeves, and apparel are made with seamless knitting techniques and, therefore, these items are part of a conscious and waste-saving process.
