Bluesign® defines the standard for environmentally friendly and sustainable materials. BRGN is proud to announce that we have incorporated bluesign® certified fabrics and materials into our products. In 2020, 100% of all BRGN fabrics will be bluesign®, since all our new products has certified fabrics.
What is Bluesign®?
According to the organization’s website, bluesign® is, “the solution for a sustainable textile production.” Bluesign® operates on the basis of five principles: resource productivity, consumer safety, water emission, air emission, and occupational health & safety. The organization sets out to eliminate harmful chemicals right from the start of the manufacturing process, ensuring the finished product will meet high environmental standards, and sets standards and controls that ensure textile production is good for the earth and safe for the people who work on it. Its certification is extensive, constantly evolving, and requires annual re-certification of materials. Bluesign® certified materials meet exacting consumer safety standards around the world, and when consumers buy products made with those materials, they’re contributing to important sustainability practices.
Why is Bluesign® important to BRGN?
BRGN by Lunde & Gaundal are creating high-quality products for consumers, and our aim is to do so in an earth-friendly way. Bluesign® allignes with BRGN by Lunde & Gaundals thoughts of a suistainable production. The use of Bluesign® fabrics means that your BRGN product was built with sustainable fabrics, so you can feel good not only about the fact that you bought a product that will keep you dry and in style, but also that you have contributed to global conservation efforts by doing so.
DWR Bionic-Finish® Eco
Hydrophobic finishing with Bionic-Finish® Eco is based on a fluorine-free recipe. Hyperbranched, hydrophobic polymers with ramified structures like in tree tops orientate in an orderly manner on the textile and crystallise on specifically adusted comb polymers. The optimum arrangement of many of these functional elements is highly effective. Additional boosters (crosslinking agents) ensure the optimum attachment and durability on many fibre substrates.
By means of bionic rudolf develops novel, sustainable and ecologically advantageous technologies in the field of hydrophobic finishing. Bionic-finish® eco combines ecology and trend-setting hydrophobic finishing of textiles.
What else do BRGN by Lunde & Gaundal do to make a difference?
BRGN constantly re-evaluate our production process to find new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to make our products as sustainable and consumer friendly as possible. More news on our work will be announced later in 2020.
Making durable products that last, and also fixing them if issues do arise, contributes to our sustainability efforts. The longer products remain in use, the less have to be produced and the less ends up in the landfills
