In addition to offering you technical sports products, our design teams are committed to ensuring that by 2026, 100% of our products will be made more environmentally friendly.
WHAT IS ECO-DESIGN?
Eco-design integrates the environmental impact of a product from the initial design concept, taking into consideration the whole lifecycle of the product.
Integrating environmental impact means producing goods with minimized environmental impact starting from the design process.
A product that is designed (or redesigned) with this approach fulfills the same qualities of use while providing benefits to the environment.
At the house of DECATHLON, our procedures of ecodesign aim to reduce the environmental impact of our products.
We will do this in two ways
1. Using materials from
more sustainable sources
The Recycled Polyester
By recycling plastic or textile bottles to make our own polyester fiber, we reduce the use of petroleum resources.
While ensuring the quality and resistance of our products, the use of recycled plastic allows us to reduce the use of raw materials derived from petroleum.
The Recycled COTTON
To create our yarn we integrate virgin cotton fibres with recycled cotton, from industrial scraps or end-of-life textiles. This method thus reduces the impact linked to the cultivation of new cotton fibres.
2. By using a manufacturing process that have less impact on the planet
DYEING WITH LESS WATER
To reduce the use of water when dyeing our fabrics, we choose yarn called "Dope Dyed". It is a process of integrating the colour pigments during the manufacture of the thread.
