We strive to innovate every day, constantly looking for better ways to manufacture our products and ensure we take every possible action towards having a lesser impact on the environment through our use of materials and methods.
Our promise to you is to keep innovating every way we can. We love this planet for its beautiful landscapes that allows us to ride, slide, jump, run and hang in – let’s do our part to make sure we leave this place better than we found it.
Every Tencel™ Modal product purchased on BN3TH.com is now carbon neutral buy supporting key renewable projects, not buying carbon credits.
We already use eco-friendly fabrics and employ sustainable manufacturing practices to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions. But it’ll take some time to reduce our emissions all the way to net zero, there are still emissions which are unavoidable. This is where carbon offsets come in.
We’re tackling these unavoidable emissions by investing in offset projects such as renewable energy, forest conservation and energy efficiency. These projects prevent future carbon emissions and remove existing CO2 from the atmosphere.
We buy carbon offset credits from these projects that are equal to our unavoidable emissions. This provides crucial funding for these projects to continue to thrive while making all our products carbon neutral from ‘seed to shelf’.
We worked closely with Green Story to calculate the CO2 emissions from each stage of our supply chain. This enabled us to measure our carbon footprint for each product and find the best suited carbon offset projects.
TENCEL™ Modal fibers, used in over 90% of our products, are manufactured by environmentally responsible production processes. The fibers originate from sustainable wood and pulp sources and are certified as compostable and biodegradable. We add a small amount of spandex to these products that doesn't completely biodegrade. Along with its botanic origin, the key TENCEL™ Modal benefits include extreme softness, enhanced breathability, moisture management and color retention. Experience TENCEL™ Modal fibers for yourself with our Classic Boxer Briefs and Trunks, Tees and Sleepwear.
About TENCEL™ Modal
Noble Fabrics XT2® NO STINK fibers are found in our Infinite product series, preventing bacteria from forming at its source and last for the life of the product (this won't wash out, unlike other anti-odor silver washes some companies use). With every product we make using XT2® fibers, you can rest easy knowing harmful residue isn't washing into the ground and oceans.
Made with 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Material ♻️
Made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials, these active Boxer Briefs are designed by our Entourage—our talented group of skaters, snowboarders, artists, surfers, bikers and all-around rad dudes. Our new EcoDry fabric is softer, more durable and breathable than ever – not to mention is way better on the planet we love to play in. Wick sweat and look bad ass doing it.
In 2019, we introduced new recyclable packaging.
Boxer Briefs and Trunks come in sleek new product bags, which are resealable if you’d like to repurpose them, or 100% recyclable if they’ve served their purpose. By switching from a box to these softpack bags, we were able to reduce our outbound shipping material usage by 30%.
No more single-use plastic: Shop with (Re)purpose
We’ve eliminated the use of single use plastic bags for our Sleepwear, Tees, 2 IN 1’s, Merino Wool and Joggers. Those products now come in our new repurposable mesh laundry bags, which can be used for just about anything! Perfect for laundry, packing, toiletries, sweaty gym gear, electronics and more.
Have a brilliant use for yours? We want to hear about it!
From Us to You
We also eliminated non-recyclable poly bags from our outbound shipping materials in favor of eco-friendly, sustainable poly mailers. Larger orders (more than 6 items) are shipped in a cardboard box that's easily recyclable.
Throughout the year, we choose to partner with best in class organizations who are leaders in their fields, constantly innovating and inspiring others to do better when it comes to protecting our home: Mother Earth. Details on these key initiatives can be found in our FAQ when partnerships are running.
