Sustainability and social responsibility are vital to our brand. At World Emblem, we continuously seek to improve efficiencies while upholding our promise of quality and fast turn times. We prioritize your needs and the environment through our three pillars: Energy, Clean Threads, and Recycling. Partnering with like-minded textile providers, we annually evaluate and implement resource-saving solutions in our production.


At World Emblem, we have made the change from fluorescent light to LEDs. The production floor is 85% LED lighting, while the offices are 75% LEDs. The average electricity consumption changed from 75 Watts to 35 Watts. 

Other electricity measures we are woking to implement:

  • Solar panel installation. To cover energy requirements, we will use 10,000 sq. of solar panels. The total investment will cost $500,000. Currently
    the team is working on a project for this to be financed by external company.
  • Translucid roof panel installation. This will reduce the need for electricity during the day, since these panels will allow for more outside light.

Clean Thread

Our Madeira premium threads are pollutant-free, certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, come from ISO-approved processes, are free from APO/ PE plasticisers and thus meet the requirements of many global brands. 

The certification according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is considered one of the most important seals of approval for textiles. Almost all Madeira threads
are equipped with this seal. It is subdivided into different product classes. In the highest classification, product class I (suitability for baby items), Madeira offers viscose and polyester as well as cotton mix and metallic threads.

At World Emblem, we recycle the following materials:

  • Paper / Cardboard (from boxes)
  • Wood (from pallets)
  • Plastic (from thread cones)
  • Metal – aluminum, bronze (Flexstyle dies) & steel.

All our scrap material, which has polyester fabric laminated with urethane, can’t be recycled. Instead of sending it to garbage sites, we dispose of it the following way:

  • We send it to a local cement company. This material is burned to produce heat in their furnaces and oven (previously tests were made to insure no toxic emissions were generated
