Continental Clothing Company - certified organic under GOTS since 2007 - certifié biologique par GOTS depuis 2007 - certificato biologico dal GOTS dal 2007

Le Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) est le leader mondial dans l’industrie textile de la certification des fibres biologiques, incluant des critères ecologiques et sociaux, soutenu par une certification indépendante de l’intégralité de la chaîne de fabrication textile. Ce référentiel a pour but de définir les critères permettant de confirmer la qualification « biologique » des textiles, de la récolte des matières premières en passant par une fabrication écologiquement et socialement responsable, jusqu’à l’étiquetage, afin d’offrir au consommateur final une garantie crédible.

Le coton biologique offre des avantages prouvés pour les personnes et pour l’environnement - En matière de développement durable, rien ne le bat. 1. donner le contrôle aux producteurs, et non aux compagnies OGM

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world’s leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. The aim of the standard is to define globally recognised requirements that ensure the organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labelling in order to provide credible assurance to the end consumer.

Organic cotton delivers proven benefits for people and the environment – when it comes to making sustainability claims you can trust, nothing beats it.

Les choix des producteurs de coton biologique ne sont pas contrôlés par les companies OGM.

2. eliminer les pesticides synthétiques dangereux Le coton biologique est cultivé sans pesticides dangereux, ce qui protège l’environement et la santé des producteurs.

3. aider les producteurs à nourrir leurs familles Le coton biologique permet aux producteurs de cultiver d’autres plants pour se nourrir et être également source d’autres revenus.

4. sauvegarder notre précieuse eau

1. give control to farmers, not GM companies

La production du coton biologique nécessite moins d’eau, préservant ainsi une ressource rare et précieuse pour le futur.

Organic farmers don’t have their choices controlled by GM companies.

5. combattre le changement climatique

2. eliminate hazardous synthetic pesticides

La culture du coton biologique utilise moins d’énergie et des sols biologiques sains stockent plus de CO2.

Organic cotton agriculture doesn’t use dangerous pesticides, protecting farmers’ lives and the environment.

3. help farmers feed their families Organic cotton enables farmers to grow other crops for food and income.

4. save precious water Organic cotton uses less water, preserving a scares and precious resource for the future.

5. combat climate change Organic cotton farming uses less energy, and healthy organic soils store more CO2.

Il Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) è il leader mondiale nello standard di lavorazione delle fibre tessili biologiche, inclusi i criteri ecologici e sociali, garantiti da certificazioni indipendenti su tutta la catena di fornitura tessile. Lo scopo del protocollo è quello di definire i requisiti riconosciuti a livello mondiale che garantiscono lo status biologico dei prodotti tessili, dalla produzione alla raccolta delle materie prime fino alla produzione ecologicamente e socialmente responsabile del capo finito ed etichettato. Tutto cio’ al fine di fornire una garanzia credibile al consumatore finale.

Il cotone biologico offre benefici dimostrati per le persone e l’ambiente - quando si tratta di fare affermazioni attendibili sulla sostenibilità, niente batte. 1. dare il controllo ai produttori e alle società non OGM

Continental Clothing Company participates in the organic cotton initiative “HAVE YOU COTTONED ON YET?” – a joint campaign by the Soil Association and the Global Organic Textile Standard

I produttori di cotone biologico non sono controllati dalle società che impongono OGM.

2. rimuovere nocivi pesticidi sintetici Il cotone biologico non usa pesticidi, questo tutela la salute degli agricoltori e dell’ambiente.

L’entreprise Continental Clothing participe à l’innitiative promouvant le coton biologique “HAVE YOU COTTONED ON YET?” – une campagne organisée en commun avec la Soil Association et le Global Organic Textile Standard Continental Clothing partecipa all’iniziativa cotone biologico “HAVE YOU COTTONED ON YET ?” Una campagna congiunta della Soil Association e il Global Organic Textile Standard

3. assistere i produttori a sfamare le loro famiglie Il cotone biologico consente agli agricoltori di coltivare altri alimenti e di avere un’altra fonte di reddito.

4. salvare la nostra preziosa acqua Il cotone biologico richiede meno acqua, preservando in tal modo una risorsa preziosa per il futuro di tutti.

5. lotta al cambiamento climatico 54

Il cotone biologico utilizza terreni organici, meno energia e produce meno CO2.

A travers le monde, des millions d’ouvriers de l’industrie textile font face à des conditions de travail précaires ainsi qu’à de grandes limites dans leurs droits et libertés. Les salaires sont bien trop bas pour survivre avec, les journées de travail sont extrêmement longues et les conditions de travail sont dangereuses. Les travailleurs sont rarement libres d’adhérer à des syndicats et d’améliorer leur situation.

Continental Clothing Company - a member of Fair Wear Foundation since 2006

Les membres de la Fair Wear Foundation, travaillent à améliorer ces conditions de travail en appliquant les huits normes qui sont au coeur du Code de Conduite du Travail.

- un membre de la Fair Wear Foundation depuis 2006 - un membro della Fair Wear Foundation dal 2006 Millions of garment workers around the world face poor working conditions and limits to their rigths and freedoms. Wages are too low to survive on, work days are extremely long and conditions are unsafe. Workers are rarely free to join unions and improve their own situation.

In tutto il mondo, milioni di lavoratori nell’industria tessile affrontano cattive condizioni di lavoro nonché gravi limitazioni dei loro diritti e delle libertà. I salari sono troppo bassi per una vita dignitosa, i giorni di lavoro sono estremamente lunghi e pericolosi. Raramente i lavoratori sono liberi di aderire a sindacati per cercare di migliorare la loro situazione.

Fair Wear Foundation member brands work towards improving conditions by implementing the eight standards at the heart of the Code of Labour Practices.

I membri della Fair Wear Foundation lavorano per migliorare le condizioni di lavoro applicando le otto norme che sono il cuore del Codice di Condotta del Lavoro.

1. employment is freely chosen

1. un emploi librement choisi

1. un lavoro scelto liberamente

Workers cannot be forced to work, for example by withholding their salaries or by locking them up.

Les ouvriers ne peuvent pas être forcés au travail, en suspendant leurs salaires ou en les enfermant par exemple.

I lavoratori non possono essere costretti a lavorare, per esempio, con la minaccia del blocco dello stipendio oppure forzandoli sul posto di lavoro.

2. no descrimination in employment

2. aucune discrimination dans l’emploi

2. nessuna discriminazione in materia di occupazione

Most workers are women. They often face descrimination and harassment. We work towards better conditions for women and other vulnerable groups like migrant workers.

56

La plupart des ouvriers textiles sont des femmes. Elles sont souvent confrontées à la discrimination et au harcèlement. Nous travaillons à l’amélioration de la condition des femmes ainsi qu’aux autres groupes plus vulnérables comme les travailleurs migrants.

La maggior parte dei lavoratori tessili sono donne. Spesso vittime di discriminazioni e molestie. Stiamo lavorando per migliorare le condizioni di lavoro delle donne e di altri gruppi vulnerabili come i lavoratori migranti.

3. no exploitation of child labour

3. pas d’exploitation du travail d’enfants

3. no allo sfruttamento del lavoro minorile

Children should be able to go to school. Once they’re old enough to work, they should be protected from hazardous work or long hours.

Les enfants doivent avoir la possibilité d’aller à l’école. Une fois qu’ils sont suffisamment âgés pour travailler, ils doivent être protégés contre le travail dangereux et les heures excessives.

4. freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining

4. liberté d’association et droit à la négociation collective

4. libertà di associazione e diritto alla contrattazione collettiva

For sustainable change, it’s crucial that workers have a voice in the improvement of their working conditions. The right to form unions and bargain with factories is the first step.

Pour un changement durable, il est crucial que les travailleurs aient une voix dans l’amélioration de leurs conditions de travail. Le droit de former un syndicat et de négocier avec les usines est le premier pas.

Per un cambiamento duraturo, è di vitale importanza che i lavoratori abbiano una voce in capitolo per migliorare le loro condizioni di lavoro. Il diritto di riunirsi e di negoziare con l’azienda è il primo passo.

I bambini devono avere la possibilità di andare a scuola. Una volta raggiunta l’eta’ idonea per iniziare a lavorare devono, in ogni caso, essere protetti contro i lavori pericolosi e orari di lavoro eccessivi.

5. payment of a living wage

5. un salaire couvrant le minimum vital

5. pagamento di un salario di sussistenza

Working for a living - the’s the idea. Wages for a normal working week should be enough to meet basic needs of workers and their families and to provide some discretionary income.

Travailler pour vivre – voilà l’idée. Le salaire pour une semaine de travail normale devrait être suffisant pour couvrir les besoins essentiels des travailleurs et de leurs familles, ainsi qu’apporter un revenu supplémentaire.

Lavorare per vivere - questa è l’idea. Lo stipendio per una normale settimana di lavoro, dovrebbe essere sufficiente a coprire i bisogni fondamentali dei lavoratori e delle loro famiglie e di trarne un guadagno.

6. reasonable working hours

6. heures de travail raisonnables

6. orario di lavoro ragionevole

Working six days a week, eight hours a day. That’s what the UN says is the maximum. Any more than that should be voluntary, paid and not more than twelve hours a week.

Selon l’ONU, travailler six jours par semaines, huit heures par jour, doit être le maximum. Au-delà, tout travail devrait être volontaire, payé et non supérieur à douze heures par semaine.

Lavorare sei giorni a settimana otto ore al giorno, queste sono le direttive ONU. Tutto il lavoro straordinario deve essere volontario, regolarmente pagato e con un massimo di dodici ore settimanali.

7. safe and healthy working conditions

7. des conditions de travail sûres et saines

Workers have a rigth to safe and healthy working conditions. That means accessible fire exits and proper safety gear. And if they need to work with hazardous materials or equipment, they need to know how.

Les travailleurs ont le droit à des conditions de travail sûres et saines. Cela signifie des sorties de secours accessibles et un équipement de sécurité approprié. Dans le cas où ils auraient à travailler avec des matières ou machines dangereuses, ils doivent savoir comment les manipuler.

7. condizioni di lavoro in ambiente sicuro e sano

8. a legally binding employment relationship

8. une relation de travail juridiquement contraignante

8. un rapporto di lavoro giuridicamente vincolante

Workers have legal rights to a contract and certain benefits, like pension payments, social security, insurances and severence pay. Employers need to respect those rights.

Les travailleurs ont des droits légaux à un contrat et à certains bénéfices, comme le paiement d’une pension, une sécurité sociale, des assurances et des indemnités de licenciement. Les employeurs doivent respecter ces droits.

I lavoratori devono avere diritti legali e benefici certi regolati da contratto, come il pagamento di contributi per poter avere una pensione, sicurezza sociale, assicurazione infortuni e malattia ed in fine un trattamento adeguato di fine rapporto.

L’empreinte carbone des produits EarthPositive® a été réduite de 90% Nous avons réduit l’empreinte carbone des produits EarthPositive® de près de 90% grâce à la conception d’un produit innovant qui est la combinaison d’une agriculture biologique à faible impact, de l’efficience dans la fabrication et de l’utilisation d’énergie éolienne renouvelable qui remplace le réseau d’électricité conventionnel. Nous n’utilisons aucune compensation carbone. L’empreinte carbone (CO2e) correspond au total de dioxyde de carbone, méthane, protoxyde d’azote et autres gaz à effet de serre émis au moment de culture et de la récolte du coton, du traitement des fibres, de la fabrication du textile, de l’emballage, du transport et de la mise en entrepôt.

The Carbon Footprint of EarthPositive® products has been reduced by 90% We have reduced the carbon footprint of EarthPositive® products by around 90% through a combination of innovative product design, low impact organic agriculture, efficiency in manufacturing, and by substituting standard grid electricity with renewable wind power. We do not use carbon offsets. The carbon footprint (CO2e) is the total carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and other greenhouse gases emmitted during the cultivation and harvesting of cotton, fibre processing, textile production, packaging, transportation and warehousing.

Verification and Labelling Carbon Trust Certification Limited provides independent verification of the carbon footprint of products and services. The independent verification by Carbon Trust Certification ensures the carbon footprint measurement is robust and credible, and enables Continental Clothing to communicate the Company’s credentials with integrity.

Carbon Trust Certification Limited fournit une vérification indépendante de l’empreinte carbone des produits et des services. La vérification indépendante assure que la mesure de l’empreinte carbone soit solide et crédible, permettant ainsi à Continental Clothing de communiquer ces accréditations avec intégrité. L’étiquette Carbon Reduction Label est un moyen pour communiquer sur l’impact que chaque vêtement a sur le climat et d’afficher un engagement très clair sur la réduction du carbone.

Réduire ensemble Depuis, d’autres marques de vêtements publient la valeur exacte des émissions des gaz à effet de serre de leurs produits - en utilisant la même méthodologie BSI (British Standard Institute) – nous pouvons raisonnablement supposer que l’empreinte carbone d’un t-shirt classique homme est comprise entre 7-15kg de CO2, et qu’un sweat à capuche se situe entre 40-90kg de CO2. Il y a de nombreuses variables qui vont influer sur la valeur finale - de la graine de coton jusqu’au produit fini. L’entreprise Continental Clothing a accompli un programme ambitieux qui a amené une réduction de l’empreinte carbone d’EarthPositive® Apparel d’environ 90%.

Exemple:

Tee-shirt homme classique EarthPositive® en blanc taille M Empreinte du produit: 800g

The Carbon Reduction Label is a way of communicating the impact of each garment on the climate, and displaying a very clear commitment to carbon reduction.

1000 pcs 7.2 tonnes

5000 pcs 36 tonnes

Saving Together Until other apparel brands publish the exact GHG emission values of their products - using the same BSI standard methodology we can reasonably assume that the carbon footprint of a typical Men’s T-shirt is somewhere in the range of 7-15kg of CO2e, and a typical hooded sweatshirt is in the range of 40-90kg of CO2e or even more. There are many variables that affect the final value - from the cotton seed through to the finished garment. Continental Clothing Company has completed an ambitious programme that has delivered a reduction in the carbon footprint of EarthPositive® by around 90%.

CO2 Reduction achieved: 7.2kg 200 pcs 1.4 tonnes

1000 pcs 7.2 tonnes

Impronta Carbone dei capi Earth Positive ridotta del 90% Abbiamo ridotta l’impronta carbonio di tutti i capi EarthPositive all’incirca del 90% attraverso l’adozione di punti innovativi nella catena di produzione, agricoltura biologica a basso impatto, efficenza nella produzione e utilizzo di energia rinnovabile proveniente da torri eoliche. Non utilizziamo crediti di carbonio. L’impronta di carbonio (CO2e) è l’insieme composto da anidride carbonica totale, metano, protossido di azoto e altri gas serra emessi durante la coltivazione e la raccolta del cotone, lavorazione delle fibre, la produzione tessile, imballaggio, trasporto e stoccaggio.

Certificazione ed etichettatura Il Carbon Trust Certification Limited fornisce una verifica indipendente delle emissioni di carbonio di prodotti e servizi. La certificazione indipendente del Carbon Trust assicura che la misurazione dell’impronta di carbonio sia scrupolosa e credibile. Questo permette a Continental Clothing di comunicare le credenziali della Società con integrità. L’etichetta di riduzione dell’impronta carbonio, è un modo per comunicare l’impatto di ogni capo sul clima e rappresenta la visualizzazione di un impegno molto chiaro di riduzione del carbonio.

Salvando Insieme Fino a quando altri marchi di abbigliamento non publicheranno i valori esatti di emissione di gas serra dei loro prodotti – utilizzando la metodologia standard BSI – si puo’ ragionevolmente supporre che l’impronta carbonio di una tipica T-Shirt rientri in un range di 7-15kg di CO2e mentre una felpa con cappuccio rientri in un range di 40-90kg di CO2e o anche di più. Ci sono molte variabili che influenzano il valore finale - dal seme di cotone fino al capo finito. Continental Clothing Company ha portato a termine un programma ambizioso che ha consegnato una riduzione delle emissioni di carbonio dell’abbigliamento EarthPositive® di circa il 90%.

What is EarthPositive® ?

Low Water Impact

EarthPositive® Apparel is made to demonstrate the highest possible environmental, social and ethical standards in one of the world’s most environmentally damaging industries, and to provide the promotional wear industry with a familiar product with which to promote awareness and take action on climate change. Now, the humble T-shirt, the most basic canvas for communicating a brand name, identity, or political slogan, has become the environmental product.

According to PAN UK, it can take more than 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton, equivalent to a single T-shirt and a pair of jeans. That’s why we chose to work in a region that receives up to 95% of its water from the monsoon rainfall. This was an important consideration for us, as the monsoon rain reduces the need for large-scale irrigation normally associated with conventional cotton farming, which often deprives local villages of scarce water resources by draining lakes and rivers, and adds significantly to the product’s footprint.

EarthPositive® Apparel is made in manufacturing facilities in India powered by wind turbines, from low-impact organic cotton. EarthPositive® Apparel is a 100% organic product, produced under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and certified by Control Union and the Soil Association. EarthPositive® is GMO-free.

Environmentally Friendly

Organic Standard The Global Organic Textile Standard for organic textiles covers the production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, export, import and distribution, to ensure the organic status of textiles from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labeling and supply, in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer. We offer both natural and colour reactive-dyed organic cotton garments, and to achieve organic certification only azo-free dyes that are permitted under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) are used. Fair Trade Practices Under the organic standard, farmers and agricultural workers are protected by stringent social criteria, total traceability across the entire supply chain, and also by the ban on the use of poisonous chemicals that can severely damage the health of farmers and their families. These standards also free poor farmers from third world debt to chemical companies on the “pesticide treadmill”.

EarthPositive® is certified by the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, Class I. The OekoTex Standard is a guarantee of the safety of textiles and dyestuffs to human health and to the environment. It also means we take more care in adopting environmentally friendly production methods throughout the manufacturing process. Wind Powered Thirty dedicated wind turbines provide the primary energy source for EarthPositive® Apparel’s manufacturing processes from spinning the yarn through to finishing the garments. The wind turbines turn wind power into clean renewable electricity. Transportation EarthPositive® has No Airfreight policy. We use containerised ocean shipping, thus the carbon footprint generated by transporting our apparel to Europe, Japan and the USA is negligible, more like a fingerprint [less than 1% of the product’s total footprint]. We cannot solve the world’s transportation and energy security issues, but we can ensure that our own methods do nothing to contribute to environmental damage, social injustice or climate change. Biodegradable Packaging EarthPositive® Apparel is packaged in biodegradable PVC-free packaging, and in 100% recycled cardboard boxes.

Justice for Workers

What is “Climate Neutral”?

To help tackle the social injustice often seen in manufacturing, commonly known as sweatshop labour, EarthPositive® goes further, making transparent the manufacturing supply chain through an independent audit by the Fair Wear Foundation, which promotes fair labour conditions in the clothing industry.

Climate Neutral means our industrial greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced to pre-industrial levels through low-impact (low-emission) organic agriculture and carbon neutral industrial manufacturing achieved by substituting electricity from fossil fuel power stations with clean renewable energy generated by wind turbines.

Pick Your Cotton Carefully We guarantee that we do not use cotton from Uzbekistan while the use of forced child labour is endemic. This follows the recommendations of the Environmental Justice Foundation’s Clean Cotton Campaign. The complete traceability of certified organic cotton allows us to make this guarantee.

Choosing EarthPositive® Apparel is a practical and immediate solution for businesses to take direct action to combat climate change and address environmental, social and ethical issues in a comprehensive and meaningful way.
