PLANET IN MIND
A Carbon Compensated Production
According to the Ellen Macarthur Foundation’s 2017 report, textiles production emitted in 2015 more carbon than all international flights and maritime shipping combined, while over “half of fast fashion is disposed of in under a year”. Scandale aims to break out of this vicious circle.
Vegan, recycled and organic materials
We choose our materials according to their environmental impact: they are recycled or organic. The Permanent Collection was designed with an average of 78% recycled ﬁbers (mainly from plastic bottles) and with a 100% organic cotton. In 2022, we also switched to recycled alloys (62% recycled on average) and packaging.
2022 is also the year we reached our first capsule completely GRS certified (Global Recycled Standard) at the garment level. The cotton is organic, ensured by the GOTS certification (Global Organic Textile Standard). Those certifications, together with the transaction certificates, are delivered by independent organisations and recognised worldwide as trustable references.
A Better packaging in a nutshell!
We're taking into account the impact of our packaging. Today, our shopping bags and hangtags are 100% recycled kraft paper, our product bags are 100% recycled plastic, ... even our label cords are made from organic cotton! In 2023, we have also reduced the size of our polybags by 20.5% in average, and by 50% for our hangtags.
Our lingerie’s Life Cycle Assessment
We also assess our product’s life cycle in environmental and social topics (with our partners BCome & Waro) such as CO₂ emissions & water scarcity. It allows us to monitor our impact on the planet. Scandale’s production in 2022 improved by 78% in terms of water scarcity & 82% in global warming.
Washing & Caring
We invite our clients to look after their Scandale products, and also all their garments, by giving washing advice. Using gentle soaps for the garments, cherishing and washing them softly helps to keep them in their original shape and colour, to make them last longer, and helps to save energy and our rivers and seas from harmful chemicals!
