Keep an eye out for the symbol that shows the way to an environmentally conscious choice – ECO!
Polarn O. Pyret places high demands on all our products, but the environment is in particular focus for products with the ECO symbol – we reduce environmental impact by selecting materials consisting of organic cotton or recycled synthetic fibers.
- Organic cotton means that the fiber is cultivated without the use of chemicals such as synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. This is good for the environment and for the people working with the plants!
- Recycled synthetic fibers (polyester and polyamide) allow us to reduce usage of new fibers that derive from non-renewable sources (petroleum) and to save the energy required for extraction.
- Some of our ECO-labelled products are also GOTS certified. This means the products satisfy all of the requirements in the globally leading standard for the certification of organic natural materials. Some examples of the very stringent requirements include those placed on chemical content, chemical utilization and water purification.
