Carbon Footprint

Products equipped with our antimicrobial technology agpure® contribute substantially to saving energy.

Hygiene is an important aspect in many areas of our daily lives. Clothing especially, which is worn close to our skin, needs to meet very stringent requirements. We often don’t wait to change our clothes until what we’re wearing is dirty. The more common reason for the mostly daily change is the smell of worn clothes. This wouldn’t have to be case if we consider that it’s the bacteria in our clothes which turn our sweat into an unpleasant smell. This happens rather quickly: the number of bacteria doubles approximately every 20 minutes.

Current research has shown that the largest share of energy consumption in a textile’s lifetime results from washing and drying a garment. Treating the textile fibre with agpure® limits the bacterial population efficiently, allowing for an intelligent means of elegantly prolonging the time between one laundry and the next.

This is how our products contribute to decreasing the environmentally harmful C02 emissions.
