The company redeveloped their brand in 2017 to produce sustainable and with low water consumption, thus prompting them to move their production to a factory in Mexico that recycles 85% of the water used in denim production. Read more about this here.
“Water waste in denim production is obscene and we have made it our mission to shine a light on this problem and make denim more sustainable. We have been looking for a charitable organization that is centered around water to give back to. As our product is made in Mexico it only makes sense to give back within Mexico. With Isla Urbana we have found a way to directly give back to the country that we proudly manufacture our product in.” explains Adam Taubenfligel, Creative Director/Designer at Triarchy.
A percentage of every sale of Triarchy Denim will be contributed to Isla Urbana.
“Triarchy’s support will help to further fund a sustainable, ecological solution for people dealing with water scarcity in Mexico. We are honored to be named a give back partner by a company that truly exemplifies water consciousness and sustainable denim production.”- Sol Garcia, Isla Urbana Foundation Coordinator
ISLA URBANA FOUNDATION
To ensure a future with access to clean water, the most vital resource on the planet, innovative water saving technologies need to be enacted on a large scale starting today. Approximately 12 million people lack access to water in Mexico, especially in rural, isolated or scattered communities where economic and technical obstacles mean conventional water services cannot be provided. Isla Urbana is dedicated to ensure water security in Mexico through the adoption of rainwater harvesting as an integral part of water management systems. Since 2009, Isla Urbana has installed over 7,400 rainwater harvesting systems, helped over 51,800 individuals have access water and captured over 333 million liters of water.
