Having been around for more than a century, we know it's up to all of us to make sure generations to come can enjoy the great outdoors. We work for environment-friendly practices from yarn to feet. We care about our community and the impact we have here. We also make socks from sustainable fibers such as Merino Wool, Coolmax Ecomade, Thermolite Ecomade, Organic Cotton, and more!
Sustainability in Action
Fox River's Sustainable Fibers
FOX RIVER IS WRAP CERTIFIED
WRAP is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to the certification of lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing throughout the world. Certificate No: 5719
Fox River socks are produced using renewable energy sources, primarily derived from a combination of wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.
REDUCTION IN ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Throughout the years, we’ve installed energy efficient lighting throughout the factory’s knit floor as well as more energy-efficient equipment such as washing machines, packaging equipment and more.
WASTE REDUCTION: A COMMITMENT TO RECYCLING
We've minimized waste in our production process by employing fewer materials, such as reducing the use of plastic wrapping. Our commitment extends to keeping items like packaging, boxes, magazines, plastic films, and yarn cones out of landfills through recycling. Additionally, we responsibly recycle machine oils, steel machinery, and electronics. Yarn waste finds a second life as eco-fiberfill stuffing and is recycled into fiber products, including car trunk liners.
REUSABLE WATER WITH GREEN MANUFACTURING
Water is a crucial component in our manufacturing process, and we ensure its reusability once utilized. Our commitment to environmental responsibility includes keeping harmful chemicals out of our processes to prevent water contamination.
