Brugnoli® introduces ECO H2O – As one with the oceans

The new textile range reducing its impact even in seawater not only at the very end of its life cycle but also during its whole lifespan.
Brugnoli® is granted ZDHC Certification – RoadMap to Zero.

Brugnoli® – pioneer in eco-sustainable fabrics – introduces its new range ECO H2O, engineered to reduce its impact not only in landfill, at the very end of its life-cycle, but also during its whole life span.
Though polyamide is less prone than other fiber to release micro plastics in Oceans, this remains a key subject in eco-sustainability.
To contribute in protecting Oceans and their fauna, Brugnoli® introduces ECO H2O the new fabric range created with the innovative polyamide Sensil® BioCare by Nilit, enhanced with a special technology that helps reduce the persistence of textile waste:
-IN LANDFILL: with a process that speeds up the standard time needed for polyamide degradation;
-IN SEA WATER: third part independent testing confirmed that the polyamide used in the new range ECO H2O by Brugnoli® has the extra-ordinary feature to breakdown significantly quicker than standard polyamide.
This is an important result in favor of the environment and even more specifically in favor of Oceans and their fauna.
New range EcoH2O by Brugnoli® counts today 3 articles with different structures and use: a flat jersey for intimate apparel, a tech fabric for sportswear and swimwear and a 3D structure for T-shirts and swimwear.
EcoH2O is the latest eco solution of Brugnoli’s which counts more than 400 eco-sustainable articles such as:
– Patented Br4® range with bio-based polyamide and eco-sustainable production process reducing water and energy
– B.recycled range with recycled polyamide at pre-consumer level, the very first action to reduce waste amount
– B/back range with polyamide with enhanced biodegradability at end of its lifecycle
– Tencel™ products, cotton with BCI, RWS certified wool and viscose from cotton linter
Eco H2O confirms once again Brugnoli® consistent approach to sustainability and in this occasion the company also announces that has been granted certification ZDHC – Roadmap to Zero, which is now together with the previously obtained certifications:
Oekotex Standard 100 – GRS Global Recycled Standard – Tessile & Salute – RWS Responsible Wool Standard – Supima® and the participation to Better Cotton Initiative.
