WHY RECYCLED POLYESTER IS BETTER THAN VIRGIN MATERIALS
Our goal is to make clothes without compromising environmental and social aspects of the production. A major part of working with sustainability is producing clothes in materials that are sustainably better, introducing: GRS-certified recycled polyester. This material is used in many of our products such as windbreakers, backpacks, tracksuits and swim shorts.
By limiting the use of virgin materials, recycled polyester dramatically lowers its environmental impact compared to traditional polyester.
Environmental benefits of recycled polyester:
- Reduces the dependency on virgin petroleum as a raw material.
- Prevents used plastic from ending up in our oceans and harming marine life.
- Decreases greenhouse gas emissions that comes from creating and processing virgin polyester.
- Can be continuously recycled again and again without quality degradation.
WHAT IS GRS-CERTIFICATION?
All our recycled materials are GRS-certified, also known as the Global Recycling Standard. Because GRS traces the product from raw material to finished product, and includes the criteria on banning hazardous chemicals. The certification ensures the garment consists of recycled materials made from PET soda bottles, discarded fishnets, and used clothes, to name a few. It’s the strictest standard for recycled materials on the market.
