GRANGERS IS A SYSTEM PARTNER WITH BLUESIGN AS WE KEEP YOU AND THE ENIVRONMENT PROTECTED WITH OUR PRODUCTS
BLUESIGN AND GRANGERS
Grangers are committed to producing environmentally-responsible, superior-performing aftercare. In 2007, we were the first aftercare brand in the world to receive bluesign® accreditation. Today, over 10 years later, the company hosts a range of bluesign® approved products and is proud to say that the whole brand is PFC-free and eco-responsible. development of cutting edge innovations. We’ve researched new technologies to better combat the worst weather conditions around the world. And, we’ve exported our products to over 50 countries – making it easier for you to get the protection you need the moment you need it most!
WHAT IS BLUESIGN®?
The bluesign® standard is a widely accepted, reliable and proactive tool that certifies the eco-friendliness of an entire production chain. Instead of focusing on finished product testing, the bluesign® standard analyses all input streams – from raw materials to chemical components. Since assessment begins prior to production, potentially harmful substances can be eliminated before production even begins – resulting in a cleaner, safer and more environmentally-responsible finished product.
THE SCIENCE OF PROTECTION
For nearly 10 years, Grangers have championed our PFC-free aftercare solutions and we were the first aftercare company to earn bluesign® system approval for the vast majority of our products. The bluesign® system checks the environmentally-aware credentials of an entire production chain, resulting in a product completely free from harmful substances and processes.
In addition to being a bluesign® system partner, we also work closely with SATRA – an independent authority on footwear, leather goods, and apparel – to ensure that our products remain as effective as possible. We support the Responsible Down Standard, to ensure that the garment manufacturers we work with use only ethically sources down. And, we have ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation, further demonstrating our commitment to the environment.
THE FUTURE OF PACKAGING
In 2020 we introduced an important and impactful change to our packaging by signing a deal with Ocean Waste Plastics. All of our 275ml Spray bottles and 300ml bottles are now made with OWP 0% virgin plastic and are 100% recyclable.
We have also introduced an eco refill pouch option for our best selling Performance Repel Plus Spray so that you can now keep your existing spray bottle and just empty the refill pouch into it when you're ready. The refill pouch uses 74% less plastic and is 100% recyclable. We have more refill options becoming available this year.
“The best thing we can do as consumers is keep our existing items in use for longer. We cannot shop our way to sustainability.”
