Why is this garment a more ecological option?
The production of new material always consumes natural resources. Using 100% recycled material with the Pure Waste method produces 99% less water footprint and 50% less carbon footprint than a similar product made from a new raw material.
Water footprint: 2.8 liters
Carbon footprint: 2,5 kg CO2e
Production is GRS certified (Global Recycled Standard).
What about ethics then?
Employees are paid a living wage that exceeds the minimum wage. The employees are of legal age and all have an employment contract, as well as access to healthcare and commuting. Working hours and occupational safety are taken care of.
The dimensions in the size chart are measured on the garment. A half chest circumference is used because it is easy to measure from something already found in the closet clothing for comparison. In the Unisex model, a smaller size is often suitable for women.
