Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Cotton and Recycled cotton.

Conventional cotton harvesting and manufacturing is associated with a comparatively very high water footprint and high use of chemicals and pesticides. So its eco impact is high. Despite being biodegradable often dyeing and finishing undermines its biodegradability.

Recycled cotton compared to conventional cotton requires about 55% less water, it reduces by  66% the energy consumption and by 35% greenhouse gas emissions. Despite being biodegradable, can be finished with chemicals that can hinder its biodegradability. So eco impact is low.
