SUSTAINABILITY IS COMPLEX AND INCLUDE SO MANY AREAS AND ASPECTS THAT IT’S HARD TO ACTUALLY SAY THAT YOU ARE SUSTIANABLE.
A WIGGYS PRODUCT IS MADE OF
Main fabric, padding and lining are made of recycled GRS certified polyester (even the membrane on the mail fabric is recycled polyester).
We we are working towards using less material/fiber mixes since mono materials do have better possibilities to
be recycled in an effective way where the goal is – fiber to fiber recycling – so the fiber source can stay in a circular system and don’ t be degraded. The techniques for recycling the fibers in a good and efficient way are an area under constant development. The full scale system for handling of polyester garments recycled or virgin to new recycled polyester fiber are at this moment not an expanded system but the techniques and actors are there.
We try to make design decisions with a circularity perspective in mind and produce garments that are possible to
recycle at the end of it´s life and not end up as waste.
When your Wiggys product is worn out , repaired several times and it s time for the garments final destination, recycling. Please contact us. We will take your Wiggys product in return, we remove parts that’s not suitable for polyester to polyester recycling and lend the rest/the polyester (the biggest part of the product) so it can be recycled in the most efficient way available at the moment (of course we also sort metal parts and other spare parts to recycle).
We are working for making better choices for the environment in both smaller and bigger decisions. This is a constantly ongoing work, that need to be par t of all decisions made. We don’t pack our garments in plastic bags.
A plastic bag, which is usually thrown in the garbage and has no new purpose of its existence, this is a product that we can easy live without.
We don’t ship unnecessary weight like hangers – all the way from China, instead we use recycled
plastic hanger produced in Sweden, made of old hangers collected in Sweden.
A Wiggys product is mainly a recycled product . Main fabric, padding and lining are made of recycled GRS certified
polyester. These materials together are approximately 90% of your Wiggys product and these parts are designed to be
recyclabel when the full scale systems are ready.
