Since 2013 ERDBÄR #Worldchanger creates sustainable Fashion products. Therefore we use fabrics like organic cotton and linen that all have the GOTS (global organic textile standard) certificate. We also work closely with the Austrian Lenzing AG where we get additional natural fibre.
Most people do not know that the fashion industry is the second strongest contributor to air pollution on a global scale. Only together we can solve this problem! Together we can change our habits. Thriving for Sustainability in all aspects is an important symbol for our society!
We all give #Worldchanger a face.
VALUES: SUSTAINABLE, FAIR & ORGANIC
Our actions are affected by our values and beliefs. This said, we try our best everyday to ensure that the people we work and collaborate with do respect certain values like fairness and appreciation of our nature. This Change of our habits is fundamental for our future!
TRANSPARENT PRODUCTION IN EUROPE WHICH IS CLIMATE-NEUTRAL
We produce in Europe. We ensure that the whole production cycle is run under fair conditions and claims to climate neutral. In Turkey we produce with Izmir. There, the fair manufacturing of fashion styles is a result to their long tradition. It is GOTS approved and Izmir is up to the latest standard of technology. Following, he lowers the use of energy significantly. In Greece we produce in Thessaloniki. It’s a family-run business lead by a woman. We also believe that this is an important step towards gender fairness. In Portugal we produce in a region that is more likely known for their wine production. The fashion factory in Porto has been recently established so it fits the highest norm of CO2 emissions.
ORGANIC, INNOVATIVE AND HIGH-QUALITY FABRICS
Our fashion styles are made out of special materials like for instance the Austrian cotton modal. These fabrics do ensure a nice wearing comfort. We do not support production processes that use cheap materials. We want to demonstrate that sustainable fashion and high-quality garments are the key to a better future.
THE GOTS CERTIFICATE
GOTS. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is considered as the sustainable production standard worldwide. This standard is defining the whole production cycle and also takes a look on social criteria among the production chain. We produce in factories that own the GOTS certificate and use materials that are defined by the GOTS requirements.
