Sustainability is a topic that concerns us all. This means that recycling also plays an important role in the production of clothing. In order to keep track, Sport Conrad marks clothing that is made of recycled material or that is recyclable with an icon.
CRITERIA FOR OUR LOGO
The criteria for our logo are clear and transparent. We assign our logo to:
- Clothing made from recycled material
- Clothing that is recyclable
Why the new Logo just makes sense?
More and more manufacturers want to show how important sustainability is to them. Conversely, customers also want to know which goods are produced sustainably. If you attach importance to the fact that the clothing you buy is made entirely of recycled material or was produced in parts from recycled material, our logo will give you a quick overview.
→ We also point in our online shop to the Fairwear Foundation, which stands for fair working conditions in the clothing and textile industry, with an extra logo on clothing.
→ With another logo and a filter, we point in our online shop to bluesign. bluesign stands for the sustainable production of textiles and hardware. Environmentally harmful substances are excluded from the manufacturing process, resource-saving manufacturing processes are guaranteed.
BRANDS that use recycled MATERIALs
“From old to new” has long since ceased to be “typically ecological”, but is now extremely innovative and very modern. Even on the catwalks of Paris you can find entire collections made of recycled materials. Many outdoor manufacturers also produce clothing from completely recycled or partly recycled materials, such as recycled down, old bed linen or worn clothing. Recycled nylon from fishing nets, polyester from recycled plastic bottles or recycled wool get a second lifecycle in the production of new textiles. Some manufacturers even offer to process and recycle their customers’ old clothes.
Here you can find a list of brands in our shop that use recycled material or use materials that are recyclable – and thus receive our icon.
