THE LIBRARY — SUSTAINABLE STANDARD™
The Library Sustainable Standard™ is a consumer facing sustainability & ethics certification for consumer products.
We are on a mission to establish trust among consumers, increase sustainability literacy by clearly identifying products that are safe for both the environment and the people who make them.
The Sustainable Standard™ promotes a circular economy (the waste to garment loop) ensuring that the life-cycle of products from creation to deconstruction -- return to the Earth as food instead of poison™. Our expertise may be applied onto products, used for communication purposes, and supplement marketing efforts. Outcomes consist of (but are not limited to) products and collections that subscribe to circular economy, human-rights, waste reduction, closing the loop, recycling initiatives, low impact production, sustainably sourced fabrics, fair wages and ethical manufacturing processes.
