The Island Life is all about feeling and looking your best—whoever, and wherever, you are.  Whether you’re prepping for the perfect vacation or just relaxing at home, we’re committed to creating apparel, accessories, food, cocktails, and experiences that work better—for you, and for our environment.

 

From the materials we source to the way we design and produce, we are bringing sustainability into everything we do.

 

Our journey begins with our design and development teams, who craft collections and collectible styles using practices that protect the world we cherish. We hold ourselves to the highest standards in the materials we use. We are just getting started and will continue looking for ways to advance sustainability in our sourcing and production. 

 

Responsible sourcing and manufacturing

 

 

Responsible sourcing and manufacturing

 

 

It’s simple: We only work with garment factories that share our core values of respect and equality in the treatment of their employees. That means every one of our garment factories has to comply with laws and regulations for working standards within their local jurisdiction. Moreover, we evaluate our direct suppliers against our own Code of Conduct. Through periodic factory auditing, we take the care and responsibility to make sure our products are made in safe, humane, and ethical working conditions.

 

We’re members of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), the leading alliance to transform the apparel industry. We first rolled out the Higg Facility Environmental Module (Higg FEM) to 70% of our Tier 1 apparel suppliers in 2018. This tool helps us assess our suppliers’ environmental performance, including their water, waste, and energy management.

 

We are seeing continued engagement with our venfors in Higg FEM completion, and are continuing to work towards our goal of 100% Tier 1 engagement for the 2020 FEM. We increased our Higg FEM completion rates with our Tier 2 suppliers from 30% for the 2018 FEM to 79% for the 2019 FEM. We also completed the Higg Brand and Retail Module (BRM) for the second year. This is an assessment tool that allows us to track and measure sustainability progress across our business.

 

Our approach also extends to the raw materials that we use. To make sure that our materials are sourced with respect for people and that human rights are upheld, we strictly adhere to the Conflict Minerals Policy adopted by our parent company and our California Transparency In Supply Chains Act policy.

 

At Tommy Bahama, we are committed to ensuring that all of our animal-derived materials are ethically and humanely sourced. While these materials make up a small portion of our material portfolio, we will continue to work in collaboration with our supply chain partners to develop best practices and guidelines.

 

 

 

 

Chemical management

 

 

Making certain our products are safe is our utmost priority. We regularly review and update our chemical policies and restricted substance list. We’ve also aligned with American Apparel and Footwear Association requirements to constantly improve transparency and chemical management.

Materials

 

 

To keep our classic styles fit for the future, we incorporate breakthrough sustainable materials into our designs. We currently use Tencel™, Repreve® recycled polyester, and LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose, impeccable-quality fabrics that are optimized for your lifestyle—and better for our environment.

Our plan for the future

 

 

We are developing a roadmap to increase the amount of sustainable material we use in our apparel.

 

Like many brands, cotton is at the core of our apparel business. While cotton remains a global commodity, supporting the livelihood of millions of farmers worldwide, its cultivating practices can be detrimental to the environment. In early 2020, we became members of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), and are in the process of creating a more strategic cotton sourcing portfolio across our product suite, with a goal of at least 50% of our highest-volume items to be sourced as more sustainable cotton by 2023. More sustainable cotton includes Better Cotton, traceable cotton, organic cotton, and recycled cotton.
