An Open Letter to the industry

Written by Johanna Juelsson

There's no time like the present, the only way we can reach systematic sustainable change is by working together.

We are taking action by sending our competitors an open letter. An open letter where we highlight sustainability. Partnership is the new leadership!

Our next step is to challenge the politicians. We'll return to this matter shortly. In the meanwhile, read the letter below and do send us any relevant feedback, we'd love to hear from you!

What do you do to stop your tights ending up as landfill?* We’d be more than happy to share our knowledge and experience in sustainable production and how we recycle old tights to new products.
Why don’t you give our CEO Linn a call on +46 70-377 02 94 and let’s discuss how we can change the industry and save the planet together.

Kind regards,
Swedish Stockings
 
*As many as 8 billion pairs of tights are made, worn a handful of times, and discarded every year, according to Statista.

  • Hi!
    Here are some answers to your comments. We are always doing our best to stay updated and research new materials and innovations in the hosiery industry, and of course this includes knowing what other companies are doing.
    Regarding the recycling program, you can send tights to us from all over the world, and all customers need to pay for the shipping themselves (including Sweden).
    We’ll look into Marks & Spencer, thanks for the recommendation!
    Hugs,
    Swe–S

  • Wolford are already doing a lot to be more sustainable with biodegradable and regenerated yarns. Have you looked in to what they are doing?

  • Is there any chance you will be able to expand your own recycling programme? You offer worldwide shopping, but only recycling in Sweden – it doesn’t seem environmentally friendly or sustainable for us all to individually post you our items.

  • Great letter. Please could you consider sending it to Marks and Spencers in the UK? They are our largest source of tights. They have made some good changes towards sustainable clothing and food recently but not in the tight department.
    Many thanks
