It is important that we look after people and planet to ensure good living conditions for the current and future generations. One way of doing so is by consuming responsibly and reusing resources as much as possible. So does MASCOT with a range of products made from sustainable materials.
MASCOT presents a new range of sustainable products in two variants: products made from 100% organic cotton and products made from 60% organic cotton and 40% recycled polyester.
The new T-shirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts are made from materials that allow customers to choose a sustainable alternative.
One variant of the new sustainable products is made from 40% recycled polyester.
Recycled polyester is made from e.g. recycled plastic bottles and other plastic waste, which has been collected and broken down into granulate and spun into new threads. These threads are used to produce textiles. This converts waste into a new resource, which can then be used for producing textiles.
Both variants of MASCOT's sustainable products contain organic cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and other harmful substances, and emits up to 94% less greenhouse gasses than production of conventional cotton.
Organic cotton is made from seeds, which are not genetically modified, and the weeds from cotton fields are removed manually. This safeguards both the farmland and the farmers who grow the cotton.
