Briosa.se about Sustainability

sustainability

FOR BOTH US AND OUR ENVIRONMENT 

That we need to think about our environment, no one probably argues against, but how can we as consumers consume more wisely?

Below you will find some tips:

  1. Choose products that you know have been produced in a neat way
  2. Focus on quality instead of quantity
  3. Avoid impulse purchases
  4. Cook what can be cooked. Feel free to check out the Japanese "The Sashiko technique". 
  5. Shop second hand
  6. Contact the companies you want to buy from and say that you want to buy products that have been produced with care for both people and the environment.
  7. Review your buying behavior and shop consciously and keep in mind that shipping also affects our environment negatively.

    Of course, companies must also take their responsibility. At Briosa.se, we have mainly chosen to work with brands that use sustainable materials and how they are manufactured and think a little extra about our environment. The clothes you find in our online store are carefully selected and environmentally, socially and ethically made clothes.

     

    Asquith logo

    One of our best-selling yoga brands is the British brand Asquith, which manufactures its training clothes in organic cotton and bamboo.

    Asquith is the small company with the big environmental thinking that thinks a little further than just the material. In order to be able to keep track of the production under good conditions in the factory and to be able to control the entire production stage, they have chosen to place the production in a small factory in Turkey.

     

    We have also chosen to work with Swedish Röhnisch and their products; Better Choice.

    Röhnisch uses, in this category, more well-thought-out materials such as organic cotton and biodegradable membranes that are without fluorocarbonsand can harm both you and the environment as well as without silver ionswhich are very harmful to aquatic organisms.

    MARKING & CERTIFICATION

    It can be difficult to keep track of all the names and certifications, so we list below the most common and what they stand for.

    Click on the respective link to read more.

    GOTS: Stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and is an international label for textile products that includes both social and environmental requirements.

    GOTS aims to make it easier for consumers to choose products where a holistic perspective has been taken with regard to both environmental and social responsibility throughout the chain. The chain includes several steps; cultivation, picking, preparation and manufacture of the garment itself.

    OCS logo  

    OCS: Stands for Organic Content Standard and is a voluntary certification managed by Textile Exchange.
    For example, if it says Organic 100, it means that 100% of the raw material in the product is ecologically certified.

    However, there are no requirements for the use of chemicals or social issues in production.

      

    Bluesign: Here the focus is on people and safety at all stages and ensures that the process is constantly optimized towards a lower environmental impact.

    This product label ensures that the products are manufactured with responsible use of resources and the lowest possible effect on humans and the environment.

    OEKO-TEX logo

    OEKO-TEX: Is a worldwide label for textile raw materials and end products. The label ensures that the product will not cause any allergic reactions or other health problems.

    In order for textile products to be labelled and marketed with the OEKO-TEX® label, all ingredients including accessories must comply without exception with the criteria catalogue.

      

     Grs: Stands for Global Recycled Standard and is a voluntary certificate for recycled materials that can be e.g. PET bottles, textile and/or mixed materials.

    The idea is that the companies that reuse materials do so in a way that is both socially and environmentally adapted.
