oh no, we don’t
With new players, processes and products coming into the mix each year, the apparel supply chain is complex. Wrangler does its best to be informed and responsive to emerging problems.
Similarly, Wrangler wants nothing to do with deforestation or the degradation of forest habitats and indigenous populations. Together with Rainforest Alliance and Canopy our parent company, VF, created a Forest Derived Materials (FDM) Policy that guides responsible sourcing of all packaging materials.
And despite not using down in current products lines, Wrangler will only use certified down in any future apparel. Feathers are a byproduct of ducks and geese raised for food. The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) ensures that the animals were not subjected to unnecessary harm, such as force-feeding or live-plucking.
