PLASTIC BOTTLES BECOME CLOTHING
The plastic problem is one of the biggest environmental challenges of our times.
At ninesquared, we also use recycled polyester to manufacture our windstopper and as a complement to organic cotton in our sweatshirts.
One jacket allows recycling of 7 to 8 bottles of PET plastic.
And to ensure that our sweatshirts are pleasant and soft on your skin, polyester in not in direct contact your skin, but inserted between two layers of organic cotton.
0% WASTE – 100% RECYCLABLE
The actual product is only one part of the environmental footprint left by a company like Ninesquared. We are not satisfied just by looking at how our products are made.
We are constantly looking for other ways to have a positive impact on the environment. This includes ours packaging, which is recycled or recyclable.
If you’ve already placed an order, you already know. We use paper tape to seal our cartons and recycled plastics whenever possible to create the packaging for our knee pads, etc.
…IS BETTER FOR THE PLANET
The cultivation of organic cotton guarantees that no chemical insecticides, fertilizers or pesticides flow into the ground or into adjacent rivers, lakes or seas. This also means that the water used for organic farming is not considered waste, as it can be reused again and again without causing any damage. The overall positive effect on water, animals and biodiversity means that the wellbeing of cotton farmers and theirs communities is respected and protected.
…IS BETTER FOR PEOPLE
Organic cotton avoids any kind of poisoning pesticide that can lead to multiple health problems and even death. According to the United Nations, 200,000 people a year die from toxic exposure to pesticides around the world. Also, the waste from making organic cotton is recycled for the animal food industry, making plant waste useful.
