TENCEL™ Lyocell

Lyocell is an environmentally friendly fibre made from wood pulp. It’s great for people with sensitive skin and compared to virgin cotton can use up to 50% less water in its production. It’s also made to last and is resistant to picking up smells, meaning you’ll have to wash it less, which is also great for the planet.

LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose 

 

Viscose is a semi-synthetic fibre that’s made from trees, and is the third most commonly used textile in the world! More than 150 million trees are logged each year to turn into cellulosic fabric which is why we only use sustainably sourced wood pulp with maximum supply chain transparency. Our viscose is certified by EU Ecolabel, which certifies its sustainability and lower environmental impact from raw-materials sourcing to production and distribution. The manufacturing of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres we use generates up to 50% lower emissions and water impact compared to generic Viscose.

TENCEL™, LENZING™ and ECOVERO™ are trademarks of Lenzing AG.

Recycled polyester

 

Recycled polyester is generally made by breaking down used plastic by melting it and spinning it into polyester yarn.

The benefits of recycled polyester are huge. It reduces our reliance on virgin petroleum as a raw material, as well as reducing CO2 emissions and minimizing the use of water and energy compared to regular polyester - It uses 59% less energy and reduces CO2 emissions by 32% compared to regular polyester production.

Interesting fact: Recycled polyester can be recycled over and over again without losing its quality.

Our Packaging

Our boxes are made of 100% recycled FSC certified cardboard. Interesting fact: recycled cardboard generates about 37% less CO2 to manufacture than virgin cardboard, it doesn’t require any trees to be felled and produces 49% less wastewater in the process!


The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council certifies that the cardboard is sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably.

Our boxes are made to be as durable as possible to encourage recycling and reusing. So be creative!
