We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it. We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Falke Men's SK4 Ski Sock - Black-Mix has the following sustainability attributes...
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
The OEKO-TEX label covers several standards though the relevant ones to Tiso ranged products are: Standard 100, Leather Standard and Made in Green. The aim of OEKO-TEX standards is to guide consumers towards making sustainable purchasing decisions by considering every element of the product, not just the main fabric. So, this includes buttons, zips and threads etc. Standard 100 and Leather Standard certifies that textiles and leather products have been tested for harmful substances. Made in Green uses the same standards as Standard 100 or Leather Standard, but also ensures the produce has been manufactured in sustainable working conditions.

This brand manufactures over 80% of its products in the country of its headquarters, which has many benefits both for the environment and for workers. Local production means less CO2 emissions, more control over working conditions, and helps to boost the local economy.
This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
