Brunotti Sustainability


 

BRUNOTTI PROJECT GREEN

Every year, 8 million tons of plastic disappear into the ocean. At the moment only 14% of all plastic is recycled. We all realize that we live in a (plastic) throw away era and that we have to do something about it. That is why we contribute to reducing plastic consumption and increasing sustainability in our products and workplace as much as possible. We respect people and the planet. Therefore, it is very important we act with this statement in our mind.

REDUCE

We try to reduce the use of irresponsible materials and processes as much as possible. For example, we reduce the use of plastic bags by using bags made of FSC paper. But we also reduce the use of water and chemicals in our production processes. One of our winter coats is made from green PET bottles. Because this does not involve a dyeing process, this also saves a lot of chemicals and considerably less water is needed for the production of the jacket.

 

RE-USE

We reuse existing materials. We do this, for example, by reusing leftover fabrics for the production of new collection items. Or reusing zippers. But also by reusing cardboard boxes for our webshop orders, if they are not damaged, we use them again.

 

RECYCLE

We are increasingly using recycled materials, such as new yarn and fabrics made of plastic. These yarns and fabrics are used for our new collections. We already do this for different items and will do this more and more every year.

 

OUR PRODUCT

When we design and develop a new collection, we look for ways to do this as clean and sustainable as possible. For example, the filling in all our ski / snowboard jackets and trousers is made from recycled material. We also made a jacket out of green plastic bottles. The jacket is not painted, so it is only available in green. By not painting the jacket we save a lot of water and chemicals during the production process, which is much better for the environment.

Every year we keep looking for ways to produce our collection in an increasingly sustainable and environmentally conscious way. On this page you find several of our products which are made in a sustainable way.

GENERAL GOAL: IN 2021, 40% OF THE TOTAL COLLECTION IS MADE OF RECYCLED MATERIALS

 

HANGTAGS

You will find a hang tag on all of our products. A hangtag contains information about the product like the price, but also information about the product materials. All our sustainable products have a special hangtag, so the consumer can see that the item is made of, for example; organic cotton, recycled fabrics or zippers.
