REDUCE IMPACT BIODIVERSITY WATER
our materials are made from Global Organic Textile Standard fabrics and the 17 % of the rest do not use any pesticide to produce it, so we don’t contribute to human eutrophication of water, one of the main reasons of disappearing fish species.
our garments don’t release any microplastic to the ocean through the washing, any microplastic is causing starvation to marine species.
the materials are shipped by land to our manufacturing site, reducing the introduction of invasive species by sea, one of the causes of extinct ones. 12% are shipped by air or sea
of our manufacturing sites have high wastewater management as our fabric and trimmings are produced in Europe or Turkey. Gots certificates require all wet processing units must be treated with wastewater treatment plants , other certificates as OCS not.
undyed materials( fabric, piping, labels,…), reducing chemicals released to oceans and 20% reduction in water use, only threads and ropes have been dyed.
lyocell (man made cellulosic fiber) reuses the chemical solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99% and 100% in Europe.
REDUCE INPUT CHEMICALS
Our fabrics and zipper tape have GOTS certificates and trimmings have OEKO-Tex 100 certificates. GOTS prohibit and restrict chemical inputs that may be used in conventional textile and trimmings processing. These standards are stricters than REACH and the “Candidate list of Substances of Very High Concern” of ECHA is prohibited. BCI cotton and OCS cotton have low criterias.
REDUCE IMPACT SOIL
our total stock products are 100% compostable ( no polyester thread, labels, zip,..) without any disassembly process so until the industry recycling improves they could be given back to the soil, without pollute it.
TAKE ACTION URGENTLY
of our actions are focused to speed the change. We are committed to do all we can afford at this time. We see how some brands have double agendas and don’t invest in sustainability prioritizing profits.
