We are seriously committed to making a change
We are not into “green washing”. On the opposite, we believe there needs to be a substantial change as soon as possible to avoid a climate disaster. According to a recent report published on climate change, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050 if we continue discarding plastic waste in the oceans. We need to be more conscious of this situation and take immediate action, learn to cohabit with nature and realize the importance of a limited ressource such as water. That means finding ways to create new products by reinventing and giving waste a new purpose without having to use new resources.
HEALTHY SEAS - A Journey From Waste to Wear
Water Saved: 69.943.712 Litres
By incorporating sustainable fabrics into our designs, our factory saves 4 times more water than it would use to make new fabrics.
Ocean Waste: 658.750 kg
The majority of our factory fabrics are now made from recycled ocean waste, such as discarded fishing nets and plastic bottles.
Emissions Avoided:6.645.300 kg
Compared to conventional supply chains, sustainable fabrics reduce greenhouse gas emissions by almost 500%
Benefits of Bamboo Cotton Vs Cotton
Bamboo cotton needs less water
bamboo uses about 1/3 less water to grow than the cotton plant does.
if not protected by chemicals, cotton can be destroyed by insects and other bugs or diseases. Bamboo is very resistant to bugs and insects as well as germs.
No Re-planting needed
The cotton plant does need re-planting each year and that takes a lot of labor to get that chore done. Bamboo cotton doesn't require replanting. Then the speed at which bamboo grows makes it a product that can be harvested rather quickly
Both bamboo and cotton are sources of renewable raw materials for fabric. However, bamboo is considered to be more sustainable given that:
- Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on the planet
- It can grow and can be cultivated in almost all type of soil
Soft and Lightweight
Bamboo is soft and lightweight compared to cotton.
Bamboo fabric is not only incredibly soft, eco-friendly, hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin, but it's also virtually wrinkle-resistant and can get fewer wrinkles when washed.
It is 40% more absorbent than cotton fabrics. It will wick the moisture from your skin faster. As a result, you will feel cool, dry, and comfy.
While both bamboo and cotton fabric materials are considered equally durable, bamboo has thicker and stronger fibers.
In particular, the bamboo rayon is three times more durable than cotton fabric.
Bamboo cotton is cleaner and more breathable than cotton is as well as having the ability to regulate your body heat.
