Confused with terms such as ECO & CIRCULAR TEXTILES, SUSTAINABILITY and what they mean practical for your health, your wallet and the environment? Check the simple explained SUSTAINABILITY guide by Pepper Vally® C O N C E P T U A L I Z E TEXTILES.
Eco-Design & Innovation: Longevity & Performance in Textiles. Include functionality and end-use purpose to Design Aesthetics.
No hazardous chemicals, plastic & petroleum in Skin, Soil and Sea:synthetics such as PE, NYLON, LYCRA release hazardous chemicals on skin during wearing, pollute the environment during production & after use decomposition, but also in house-washing every time you wash them in the washing machine.
Sustainable & Circular Textiles: Extent the use/performance of textiles and re-use after end of life. Clearly identify and certify the fibre composition to facilitate recycling. One/Clean component quality & 100% natural or bio-based mean easy to categorize after use and requires 3-5 years to decompose instead of 100 years of synthetics.
No MASS-FAST-WASTE production: Made to order to eliminate STOCK in landfills, Made to shape technology to eliminate waste. FAST fashion of buying more pieces of bad quality, cheap products is increasing waste products and is more expensive than less pieces of good quality. FAST FASHION is OUT OF FASHION.
FAIR & TRASPARENT procedures: not only Design but also fabric & final product manufacturing, made locally in Greece. Decent work and Fair wages to textile workers & up-skilling them to become co-creators instead of labour workers. No forced and child labour from Yarn to End product manufacturing.
