Let's talk about the green in galvin green
We believe in a holistic approach to sustainability and our work on these issues is an ongoing process here at Galvin Green. It’s in our DNA to introduce new, cutting-edge technologies to maximize the golfer’s performance while, at the same time, seeking to minimize social and environmental impact. Whenever possible we choose sustainable textile methods, fabrics and labels
Already in 2013 we started working with Bluesign® approved fabrics. This means that the garments are made using eco-friendly textile production methods, fabrics and labels. Today, more than 60% of our garments are made from eco-friendly fabrics licensed by the reputable bluesign® scheme.
Sustainability to us is defined by long-lasting comfort. We make durable, well-designed quality garments that create a relationship with the player - that will stand the test of time.
Our first bluesign collaboration was with W.L Gore & Associates, with whom we have a long standing relationship incorporating the unrivalled GORE-TEX® laminate across our line of waterproof jackets and trousers. The difficulty is to find fabric suppliers who can apply the demanding principles of the system that is obviously good for the environment, while providing us with materials of the necessary quality to make our premium garments. The criteria is very stringent in terms of the amount of water and electricity used in the process of manufacturing fabrics, plus the addition of chemicals approved in the European Union and even worldwide. Authorised inspectors carry out audits at every factory to verify compliance and award sought-after certificates.
We are gradually expanding our range made from Bluesign® approved materials to improve environmental footprint throughout the supply chain. Happily we find more and more materials that stand the test.
