What makes this product sustainable?

At Eugenie, we do the research to make it easy for you to find products that you can feel good about purchasing, using, and wearing.

Each new designer we work with starts with a conversation about sustainability and how it relates to their brand and products.

Sustainability can mean many different things, we tried to break it down for you in a way that is easy to understand.

  • Natural, Durable Materials

    Wool is biodegradable as well as has a long lifespan, meaning wool products are used or worn longer than other textile fibre products.

    These products also tend to be washed less frequently at lower temperatures which has a lower impact on the environment.

    Wool biodegrades readily on land and in water – as a protein-based fibre, wool does not contribute to microplastic pollution.

    Sheep are part of the natural carbon cycle, consuming the organic carbon stored in plants and converting it to wool. Fifty percent of the weight of wool is pure organic carbon.

  • Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) Certificate

    Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) Certificate

    Recycled polyester, also known as rPET, is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber. By choosing recycled polyester fabrics, the same technical performance is achieved as other polyester fibers but leaving a lower environmental footprint.

    The production of recycled polyester is better for the atmosphere, creating 75% less CO2 emissions than virgin polyester. Recycled polyester does not require the creation of new oil, which reduces the demand for oil extraction and reduces our ecological impact, and in addition, there is a post-consumer and post-industrial use.

    Recycled polyester gives a second life to a material that’s not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in landfills or the ocean

  • Supply Chain Transparency
