A NEW STANDARD

We have started a green revolution


A FIRST STEP IN REDUCING THE ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

Manufacturing and sales of textiles are global activities that have a major impact on our planet. Environmental impact arises throughout the manufacturing chain – from raw materials to finished product. To be able to reduce the environmental impact you first have to measure it.

Fristads is the first clothing producer in the world to introduce a new standard for measuring the total environmental impact of a garment – from choice of material to delivery of the finished garment. We want to contribute to positive change and greater transparency when it comes to environmental impact.

As part of this initiative we are launching Fristads Green. A new concept where the entire manufacturing chain is characterized by environmental awareness and innovative solutions to minimize the footprint on the environment. First up is a collection for craftsmen during autumn 2019. The collection for craftsmen will be followed by a collection for industry and service which will be launched in march 2020.

EPD

ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATION

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) shows a product’s accumulated environmental effect through its life cycle. Fristads has made the world’s first EPDs for clothing. We have developed a new standard for measuring the total environmental impact of a garment. A standard that can be used throughout the textile industry. EPDs are already used in other product areas, but Fristads is the first to implement it for clothing.

- INNOVATION, DEVELOPMENT AND KNOWHOW

UNIQUE CLEAN DESIGN AND CHOICE OF MATERIALS

The garments are specially designed, featuring advanced folding that reduces sewing time and avoids unnecessary waste. They have a clean design involving minimal details and smart solutions, which saves energy in production and facilitates recycling of the material.

The materials are recycled polyester and undyed cotton. The polyester is dyed using the e.dye® process, which reduces water consumption by 75%. All garments are also OEKO-TEX® certified.

Buttons are made of raw finished metal alloy, using a metaltreatment method that cuts water consumption. Most of the zipper and all details are made of recycled polyester.

E.dye®

An environmentally sustainable process for dyeing fabrics which reduces water consumption by 75% compared with traditional dyeing. The colour is added to the raw material before it becomes yarn and gives superior colour performance because the colour is inside the yarn.

Zero Waste

We reuse all waste material from production. Surplus material from all Fristads Green products are utilised on site and are turned into “comfort pads” – a bonus product for elbows and knees.



EFFECTIVE PACKAGING AND DELIVERY

In order to avoid the use of plastic bags, garments are folded using a special folding technique. This also means they take up less space, allowing us to make optimum use of transport capacity. All transports take place by boat and car, which have a significantly lower environmental impact than air travel.
