CLIQUE's commitment to creating a more sustainable future.
Here at Clique Fitness, we're always looking for ways to make our processes more sustainable and strive to reduce unnecessary waste. We've been working hard to implement the following processes and are consistently changing to better suit our transparency goals.
All CLIQUE products are designed in New Zealand, with the majority of them manufactured in China. All factories Clique Fitness works with hold the GRS certification to provide a zero-harm work environment for employees and those affected by our work.
CLIQUE staff regularly visit our contracted factories for ethical audits to ensure the high standards of staff pay, working conditions and product quality are maintained.
All Clique Fitness products are created to fulfil a need, creating a thoughtfully curated collection of pieces that are trans-seasonal and classic. All products that we design have longevity in mind, and we use the highest quality fabrications available to us.
Clique Gen III Classic Compression tights are constructed using RECOFLEX™ certified fabric, which is created using post consumer recycled plastic bottles. There are approximately 12.5 plastic bottles saved from landfill to create each pair of Gen III Classic Compression tights. You can find more information on RECOFLEX™ here.
A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
You may have noticed a new green button at checkout - CarbonClick aims to help businesses offset the carbon produced by their product or activity. This allows our customers who are prepared to help, a simple, easy way to make their purchase carbon friendly.
By clicking the Offset button, a small $ amount is added to your cart, but the money doesn't come to us. Instead, your Carbon Offset purchase goes directly to CarbonClick, where you will fund projects like forestry (planting trees). The more trees planted, the more emissions absorbed. You can find more information about CarbonClick here.
CLIQUE Product packaging likes to get down and dirty, but not in a trashy way. All CLIQUE packaging will soon be fully home compostable, meaning you can compost CLIQUE product packaging at home and save it from the landfill. From March 2020, all Clique Fitness products will be packaged in "TÜV AUSTRIA OK Compost" Home compostable packaging.
Owing to the comparatively smaller volume of waste involved, the temperature in a garden compost heap is lower and less constant than in an industrial composting environment. This is why composting in the garden is a more difficult, slower-paced process.
TÜV AUSTRIA’s innovative answer to this challenge was to develop OK compost HOME to guarantee complete biodegradability in the light of specific requirements, even in your garden compost heap.
All CLIQUE products are shipped in R3 Pack Home & Commercially compostable shipping bags, which are made from plants. R3 Pack shipping backs meet ABA Australian and New Zealand Compostable Certification Standards.
Both CLIQUE's product and shipping packaging carry the European Bioplastics seedling logo, meaning that these products are certified industrially compostable according to the European standard EN 13432.
