Fristads has innovated the world’s first EPDs (Environmental Product Declaration) for clothing!
This exciting new standard for measuring the total environmental impact of a garment will function as a long-term, sustainable measuring tool across the entire textile industry. Although EPDs have been used in other products, Fristads is leading the way for introducing EPDs in garments.
Fristads Green concept is the world first garment collection with an Environmental Product Declaration. This revolutionary concept will launch a new standard which will measure eco-efficiency from choice of material, to delivery of the final garment.
The first Fristads Green collection was launched for craftsmen, industry, service and cold wind rain in autumn 2019. Since then, Fristads has championed the Green concept as part of every product segment in the upcoming years.
With a unique, streamlined design, the garments have advanced folding and less stitching, proving to be an efficient use of resources which avoids unnecessary waste.
The use of recycled polyester dyed with e.dye® also ensures that production is more efficient, as e.dye® reduces water consumption by 75%. All waste material from production is reused to form new products.
The ground-breaking Green concept has garnered international acclaim, winning the Red Dot Award: Design Concept in September 2019.
The EPD reflect a products accumulated environmental impact during its life cycle. All of Fristads Green products have a certified EPD, compliant with the requirements of the international EPD®-system.
