Nov 28, 2022
As the world’s leading manufacturer of spun yarns, Parkdale is fully committed to creating innovative and cost-effective solutions that protect the environment and improve lives. With over 29 manufacturing plants in the U.S., Mexico, and South America, the company can produce over 8,000 tons of yarn per week.
What has made Parkdale so successful since its inception in 1916? Parkdale's commitment to innovation and technology for over one hundred years has been the foundation that has resulted in an emphasis on sustainability, the environment, and continuous improvement that drives our success. Parkdale's guiding principle will always remain placing our customers at the heart of our organization.
By joining forces with the U. S. Cotton Trust Protocol, Parkdale assures its customers that the cotton fiber in its supply chain is more sustainably grown and has a lower environmental and social impact.
Parkdale takes action to reduce its carbon footprint whenever possible. Actions like updating to LED lighting in all their facilities, converting to lithium batteries in personnel transport vehicles, performing water and 3rd party energy audits and reductions, among others.
As a member of the Trust Protocol, companies (or spinners) like Parkdale also develop non-conventional methods to reuse waste generated from the production process and reuse or recycle everything in their facilities - from packaging materials and cardboard to breakroom bottles and cans.
Virtually every part of the cotton plant is utilized in one form or another, such as filler insulation, animal feed, or cleansing products.
By applying innovative and specialized technology, Parkdale develops products that help the environment, are energy efficient and biodegradable and minimize wasteful water use.
How the Trust Protocol makes Parkdale even stronger
As the sustainability standards of garments and textile manufacturing rise, multi-national companies like Parkdale need reliable suppliers they can trust to deliver quality and consistent materials that ensure customer satisfaction.
And as the world’s largest cotton buyer, they take cotton seriously. Thanks to the Trust Protocol, Parkdale can feel confident they are buying responsibly produced, quality fiber and reducing environmental and social risk in the field-to-mill supply chain.
The Trust Protocol is a program that offers brands and retailers the critical assurances needed to source more sustainably grown cotton by providing data on environmental metrics of U.S. cotton production and a fully transparent supply chain.
In addition, the Trust Protocol is aligned with the U.S. 2025 National Goals for Continuous Improvement and understands that a focus on innovation and technology is vital.
