Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Cotton and Polyurethane.

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.

Polyurethane Plastic manufacturing has a comparatively low impact on fossil fuel depletion, eutrophication and global warming footprint. It can be easily recycled through chemical or mechanical recycling. Polyurethane plastic being long lasting contributes to widening lifespan of items that adopt it as material. So eco impact is relatively satisfactory.

2nd use
This product has an extended lifespan. Extending the life of clothes offers the greatest overall potential across carbon, water, and waste targets. This can be achieved by designing clothes to be more durable, and by encouraging re-use through sales of second hand clothing or through recycling.
