OUR VISION FOR ECO-FRIENDLY YOGA WEAR

For Arctic Flamingo, sustainability is nothing exceptional, but a basic requirement. This is Arctic Flamingo:

WE MANUFACTURE LOCALLY

 

We choose to work with German sewing rooms. This enables us to produce in smaller quantities and avoid overstock. It also guarantees fair salaries and fair working conditions for the textile workers. And what we like the most: The transportation distances stay short and we can meet with our partners easily without needing to travel the world!

 

• Short transport distances – less harmful CO2 emissions
• Fair working conditions

 

The fabrics we use are manufactured in Italy and Germany.

WE CHOOSE SUSTAINABLE FABRICS

 

ECONYL® regenerated nylon: We use recycled nylon instead of virgin materials. All our printed leggings are made of ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fiber made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring, and industrial plastic. We think using regenerated fibres reduces our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, and is the best way to reduce the impact of synthetic textile production from yoga leggings. Read more in our blog why we chose ECONYL® regenerated nylon!

 

TENCEL™ Lyocell: We use lyocell for our black yoga shorts and yoga leggings. We love this soft material with botanic origin! We choose lyocell over cotton because it requires less energy and water to produce. Our fabric made with TENCEL™ Lyocell is manufactured in Germany, which we are very proud of!

 

Bio-Based Polyamide: Our bio-based fabric is made from the castor plant. The yarn is made from castor oil – not for feeding plant that can grow spontaneously. It´s a totally renewable resource that does not require high amounts of water nor subtracts arable land for food uses. Bio-based polyamide is a great innovative alternative to recycled polyamide – it is quick-dry, stretchy and durable material and its production process is water- and energy-saving. Check our Black Sparrow leggings here! 

 

All fabrics we use are OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certified.

WE PLANT TREES

 

We plant a tree on behalf of every customer who leaves an online review on our website. You can post a review also if you got our leggings as a gift! The trees are planted in countries where there are serious deforestation issues including Tanzania, Madagascar and Kenya.

After a few days we’ll send you an email through Tree Nation, informing you where and what kind of a tree we have planted for you. Thank you for showing Mother Nature some love!

 

 

WE CARE ABOUT THE WHOLE PACKAGE

 

Even our care labels are made of recycled polyester, the hang tags, hang tag fasteners and flyers are made from recycled materials, and all shipping material minimized and we always choose card boxes made of recycled paper. All this might cost more than the conventional options, but we don’t want to compromise!

 

 

WE ARE DEDICATED TO MAKE MORE CONSCIOUS CHOICES IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE

 

We move through life with an awareness of how natural resources are used to create and support the life that we live. We drive less and walk and ride a bike more, consume less energy, buy recycled products, eat locally grown vegetables, eat less meat and dairy, recycle, buy less, and create less waste.
