MATERIALS AND CARE
We work with monitoring programs to ensure compliance with our social, environmental and health, and safety standards for our garments.
To assess compliance, we have developed a program of audits and continuous improvement plans.
Nowadays, recycled polyester is mainly made out of recycled PET plastic, such as plastic bottles.
Whenever you throw a plastic bottle into a recycling bin, it is taken to a waste separation and classification plant. There, the different types of plastic are separated so they go to the best place. The PET plastic is cleaned, shredded, and recycled into new recycled polyester fiber, among other products.
This way, we are able to give plastic waste a new life and reduce our consumption of virgin unprocessed materials.
We only use recycled polyester certified by organizations that monitor the process from the source to the final product. At present, we work with:
Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
Recycled Content Standard (RCS)
CARE FOR WATER
These garments are produced with technologies that reduce water consumption in their production processes.
The garment dyeing and washing processes consume the largest amount of water. Using closed circuits that allow us to reuse water or employing technologies such as low bath ratio machines or mass dyeing, which reduce water consumption, helps us to preserve freshwater resources.
Caring for your clothes is caring for the environment.
Lower temperature washes and delicate spin cycles are gentler on garments and help to protect the color, shape, and structure of the fabric. Furthermore, they reduce the amount of energy used in care processes.
