The new launch includes responsibly made interlinings and inner components like canvas chest pieces, shoulder pads, and undercollar felt using Global Recycling Standard-certified recycled polyester, Better Cotton Initiative cotton, recycled plastics, and hemp. These products are a part of Chargeurs’ permanent collection called Sustainable 50, which launched in September 2019. The brand has expanded from initial 50 products to 250 products.

Applauded Chargeurs’ best practices, he said that the Sustainable 360 line makes it possible for them to source high-quality, sustainable inner components which are backed by a complete CSR program
