MATERIALS AND CARE
Care for fiber & water: at least 50% ecologically grown cotton.
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.
Ecologically grown cotton
Ecologically grown cotton is grown using natural fertilisers and pesticides.
Using these natural farming methods is more respectful of water and local biodiversity, allowing farmers to grow cotton crops alongside other food crops such as oranges, tomatoes or turmeric.
Furthermore, plantations where ecologically grown cotton is grown avoid the use of genetically modified seeds, thus helping to preserve seed biodiversity and soil fertility.
We only use ecologically grown cotton certified by organisations which monitor the process from the raw material to the final product. At present, we work with:
Organic Content Standard (OCS)
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
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.
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.
Caring for your clothes is caring for the environment.
To lengthen the life of denim garments, always turn them inside out and wash at low temperatures. This will help you preserve their colours and the structure of the fabric, as well as reduce energy consumption.
