SUSTAINABILITY AND RESPONSIBLITY
Forét encourages you to slow down and go offline. We do this by also thinking about our environmental impact and what we as a brand can do to save the nature for future generations. All though we are not 100% sustainable, we at forét are working towards finding new sustainable ways to produce and deliver our products. Saving the environment, is one of our top priorities and we are tackling it one step at a time.
Most of our styles are made of cotton and our cottons are mainly sourced with GOTS certified organic cotton. We are using canvas for our heavy shirts fx our best seller BEAR. Canvas is an extremely durable and plain-woven fabric, which is also used for items were sturdiness is required like sails, tents, marquees and backpacks. Our flannel, poplin, twill and linen are BCI certified and the Italian lambswool we use for our knitwear is OEKO-TEX certified.
FABRICS WE USE
BCI – BETTER COTTON INITIATIVE:
BCI is the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world. The certification is based on The Better Cotton Standard System which is an approach to sustainable cotton production. The Better Cotton Standard System meets some principles and criteria standards for the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social and economic.
GOTS – GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD:
GOTS certified cotton contain at least 70% organic fibres. GOTS limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemicals during production and processing.
- Free from toxic pesticides and chemicals
- Less water consumption
- A more biologically diverse farming
- Social Responsibility in the production
OEKO-TEX – CONFIDENCE IN TEXTILES STANDARD 100:
OEKO-TEX makes sure that every component in the fabric has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms. The test criteria are globally standardised and are updated at least once a year on the basis of new scientific information or statutory requirements. OEKO-TEX has a standard that is far more comprehensive than the legislation of Denmark and the EU which makes it trustworthy and will ensure compliance with regulatory requirements regarding harmful chemistry in products.
