Sustainability at Knix

Mission:

At Knix, we’re committed to supporting our beautiful community. And that doesn’t just include the people within it. It also includes the planet that we live on, grow and learn from everyday. By taking steps to rethink production, transportation and consumption, our aim is to reduce our environmental impact, all while empowering people to make their own meaningful changes too.

We’re taking the approach of progress over perfection. While working hard to find sustainable solutions, we also believe that making progress is better than waiting for perfection.

Initiatives

Through our Positive Returns initiative, over 35,000 bras have been donated to women’s shelters across North America in 2020 alone. Ordered a Knix bra that’s not the right fit? Contact our customer service team at info@knix.com to see how you can help too.

Certifications

All Knix products are PFAS free. All of the main fabrics used in our bras and underwear are also OEKO-TEX® certified— meaning they’ve been tested and cleared for harmful substances. For more details about manufacturing and to read copies of the reports, check out our blog below.

Periods & Sustainability:

Knix created Leakproof Underwear to be a safe and sustainable alternative to your usual single-use pad and tampon monthly routine. With different absorbency levels that help reduce your period footprint, Leakproof Underwear are an eco-friendly and reusable replacement for disposable period products.

Our Sustainability Approach:

1. Taking Stock with a full audit of everything Knix— from our partners to our packaging (and everything in between), determining where we stand socially and environmentally.
2. Defining the areas we think require the most attention.
3. Planning by building short, medium and long term actionable goals to tackle change.
4. Acting with members across all departments to collaboratively work toward our goals.
