Other Sustainability Notes

Core to Mana Threads is our mission to be a sustainable business that makes decisions that are not solely to benefit the bottom line but that are responsible to our planet, providing our customers with a fun and sustainable option supporting their personal goals. When we started Mana Threads it was all about the product and connecting with a community that inspired us, women who love to be active, loved the outdoors, and who wanted to Stand Out in outfits that were fun and performed in any activity. However, the more we understood about the impact of the textile industry on the environment the more we wanted to be a part driving change. This realization drove big changes at Mana Threads, from our fabrics to the production processes and auxiliary products we use in support of the business. We switched all of our lines to biodegradable nylon, a fabric that extends the clothing life and reduces the end of life impact through energy recapture. We also partnered with Climate Neutral to offset our carbon footprint. Those who follow Mana Threads know that the brand is all about supporting causes we believe in and they are all focused on the environment and our community! Climate Neutral is a great partner because they hold you accountable to have a sustainability roadmap and to have a plan for continuous improvement. Climate Neutral also provides a vehicle for offsetting carbon footprint in a process that is achievable for small and large businesses alike. We believe in the need to drive improvements while not waiting for perfection so as to make a real difference and sooner! Mana Threads wants to share our sustainability journey with you, an informative and fun journey of inclusion. We are committed as a business to do better and to bring together communities of anyone who wants to make a difference and is ready to do more, even if that more is simply supporting sustainable brands!
