#SAVETHECLIMATE

Stand up and raise awareness for the consequences of climate change, with our "Better Climate Sweater"

Thanks to loud protests from the young generation and many other people of all ages, the impending climate crisis finally became a global political issue in 2019. We are also committed to climate protection and are setting an example with our polar bear!

We want to support POW with the "ugly Christmas sweater"

In the 80s the trend of the "Ugly Christmas Sweaters" began in Great Britain and once thing has at least been clear since Colin Firth wore one in "Bridget Jones": sweet Christmas sweaters are iconic. However, our "Better Climate Sweater" is much more than that! We have designed a winter sweater that is 100% climate-neutral and also supports an important project. Protect our Winters (POW) has set itself the task of sensitising the outdoor sports community to the climate crisis. We think the non-profit project is extremely important and are happy to support it. For every sweater sold from the limited collection, we are donating € 15 to POW Deutschland.

#TALKTHECHANGE

The cute polar bear stands out! Use it to talk about the climate crisis. Show that the subject is important to you. Inform yourself and get involved! On the site of our partner, POW, you will also find some useful tips for your everyday life. So you can change something on a small scale.

What do the textile industry and climate change have in common?

A whole lot. This is because the textile industry is responsible for a large part of the CO2 produced by man. If there is a growing awareness in social circles of what the textile industry is doing, it has become clear to us that this does not yet extend to the environmental impact of clothing. Material extraction, production, transport, packaging, use and care, disposal. In each of these steps, CO2 is produced. Fast fashion pushes this output to the top. For a simple, conventionally produced cotton T-shirt, this can mean as much as 30 kg of greenhouse gases per kg of product.

In comparison, our environmentally friendly and fairly produced pullover made from 100% organic cotton has 13.41 kg emissions per product (including transport, the period of use and disposal). That is less than half. Nevertheless, this is still too much for us, which is why we offset our products with ClimatePartner.

How much CO2 is generated in the production chain for our ecologically and fairly produced Better Climate Styles?


Is there some small way in which you can help the bears on the pullover?
