OUR VISION FOR ECO-FRIENDLY YOGA WEAR

For Arctic Flamingo, sustainability and the ecological use of natural resources is nothing exceptional, but a basic requirement. This is Arctic Flamingo:

WE MANUFACTURE LOCALLY

 

For customers from Europe, you can be proud of contributing to our local economies while also contributing to sustainability with less transportation costs and resources. All Arctic Flamingo eco-friendly yoga leggings are cut and tailored in a small atelier in Germany. The fabric is printed in Germany, using an eco-friendly printing process. It is manufactured in Italy, from recycled nylon fibres mixed with elastane. The recycled fibres for this process are produced in Slovenia from nylon waste gathered from across the world.

WE USE ONLY RECYCLED FABRICS

 

All our leggings are made of recycled nylon. We think using recycled 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.

 

Nylon we use is called ECONYL® yarn and regenerated nylon from pre- and post-consumer nylon waste. Pre-consumer waste can be production discards, industrial plastic components and textile scraps. Post-consumer waste is in fact waste that would otherwise be dumped in landfills or abandoned in nature with big environmental problems. With the ECONYL® process, this material can be recovered – e.g. from carpet fluff (the upper part of carpets), abandoned or spent fishing nets (from all over the world) – and regenerated, giving it a new lease of life and contributing to a cleaner environment.

 

Nylon may be man-made and made out of oil, but reusing existing nylon makes a massive difference to its environmental impact, reducing the amount that goes to landfill. Recycling nylon helps promote new recycling streams for nylon products that are no longer usable, and reduces air, water, and soil contamination.

 

Using recycled nylon we have a double advantage for the environment. On one hand, waste material that would otherwise remain waste in the environment is used, and from the other side, precious fossil raw materials that are normally used in the production of nylon is saved.

WE TAKE BACK YOUR OLD LEGGINGS

 

Arctic Flamingo takes old leggings that you no longer like or want back. We clean and repair them and sell them in our online shop (Our 2nd life shop section is COMING SOON!) and give the leggings a new life. The leggings that cannot be repaired, we remake them into one-of-a-kind designs. Here’s how it works: please contact us inkeri@arctic-flamingo.com to organize the shipping of the leggings and we find them another home.

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.

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.
