The most significant way to change a garments environmental impact is to use recycled materials. This keeps discarded material out of landfills, and trash is transformed into a resource. It furthermore cuts demand for petroleum used for virgin polyester.
“Fabrics and filling for the garments are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, which means we do not produce any new fabrics”
At Sittingsuits we take our responsibility seriously, and try to implement sustainable solutions at every step.
Fabrics and filling for the garments are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, which means we do not produce any new fabrics: thus saving energy, water and resources.
POSITIVE IMPACT Sittingsuits are designed to last significantly longer than blankets, and do not need to be changed every season. They also reduce the need for outdoor heating devices at restaurant patios. Wet Sittingsuits air-dry within minutes. No tumble dry is ever necessary. AFTERLIFE We urge our customers to donate their used and discarded Sittingsuits to suitable charities, such as refugee camps and homeless shelters, to prolong the usage time.
