MATERIALS AND CARE
Care for fiber & water: at least 30% recycled polyester.
We use the Join Life label on clothing that is produced using technology and raw materials that help us to reduce the environmental impact of our products.
We work with monitoring programmes to ensure compliance with safety, health and quality standards for our products.
The Green to Wear 2.0 standard aims to minimise the environmental impact of textile manufacturing. To that end, we have developed Inditex’s The List programme, which helps guarantee both that production processes are clean and that our garments are safe and healthy.
Recycled polyester is produced from recycled PET plastic, such as that found in plastic bottles.
Whenever you throw a plastic bottle into a recycling bin, it is taken to a waste separation and classification plant. These plants separate the different types of plastic and give it a better purpose. The PET plastic is cleaned, shredded and recycled into a new recycled polyester fibre.
As a result, we are able to give new life to plastic waste and reduce the consumption of virgin raw material through a process that consumes less water and less energy and generates less waste.
The recovered thread has characteristics similar to virgin polyester: it is strong, resistant and long-lasting and can always be recycled again.
We only use recycled polyester certified by organisations which monitor the process from the source to the final product. At present, we work with:
Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
Recycled Content Standard (RCS)
Care for water
These garments are produced with technologies that reduce water consumption in their production processes.
The garment dyeing and washing processes consume the largest amount of water. Using closed circuits that allow us to reuse water or employing technologies such as low bath ratio machines or mass dyeing, which reduce water consumption, help us to preserve freshwater resources.
This product has been manufactured in accordance with the Join Life standard developed by the Inditex Group and based on Life-Cycle Assessment, an internationally standardised methodology used to evaluate the impact of a product in the different stages of its production, use and end of life.
In order to evaluate compliance with the standard, an auditing programme has been put in place to be carried out by specialised external companies.
Caring for your clothes is caring for the environment.
Lower temperature washes and delicate spin cycles are gentler on garments and help to protect the colour, shape and structure of the fabric. Furthermore, they reduce the amount of energy used in care processes.
