Where To Buy - Van Heurck

“For us, Tecapro® Ecogreen is an important step in improving the sustainability of our collections. When developing sustainable clothing, we take several different factors into account: the raw materials that we chose, the ecodesign of the clothing, socially responsible production, clothing that can be used to extend service life through sustainable maintenance, end-of-life solutions for clothing.We endeavour to combine all of this with the carbon neutrality of our business operations. We consider it important that sustainability is more than just a marketing tool, but something that can be quantified as well. That’s why we enter into partnerships with accredited labels, such as the Fair Wear Foundation, CO2 logic, and Ecovadis.This requirement was also satisfied for the TenCate Protective Fabric’s Tecapro® Ecogreen fabric. An ISO 14025 EPD® report from Tecapro® Ecogreen mapped out a positive, quantifiable impact on the environment, and we are pleased to be able to use this innovative fabric for our collections.”
