LENZING™ ECOVERO™ distinguishes itself from generic viscose through a significantly reduced environmental impact during production.
The commitment to fostering a cleaner and greener world is evident in the approach, emphasizing minimal resource consumption and waste generation.
Biodegradability is a key feature of the cellulose fibers.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers are designed to seamlessly return to nature, ensuring no adverse effects on the environment and contributing to the maintenance of clean water sources.
Lower water impact
In the realm of water usage, fiber production distinguishes itself by utilizing up to 50% less water compared to generic viscose. The focus extends beyond efficiency to water quality, prioritizing the thorough purification of used water before its return to nature.
Lower CO2 emissions
Addressing climate change, the production of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ boasts a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions, as verified by the Higg Material Sustainability Index. This significant decrease underscores the commitment to combating climate change and aligning with sustainable practices.
*The Higg MSI
(Materials Sustainability Index) is the industry's most trusted tool at
the material selection stage of the supply chain. It helps you understand the cradle-to-grave impacts of different materials (such as textiles, plastics, metal and leather) and how processing decisions can change those impacts.
Sustainable wood source
The sourcing of fibers reinforces sustainability, with LENZING™ ECOVERO™ deriving from certified, renewable wood sources.
This process adheres to high environmental standards, aligning with the dedication to fostering a sustainable lifestyle and a pristine environment. The raw material, wood, originates from FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC™ (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified and sustainably managed forests, as recognized by the non-profit environmental protection organization Canopy, consistently ranking Lenzing among the top global viscose producers in terms of sustainability.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THIS FABRIC
In terms of wrinkle and crease resistance, ECOVERO™ naturally possesses these qualities. However, like any fabric, occasional wrinkles may emerge. To remedy this, a simple touch-up with a steamer or a gentle pass with a steam iron at a lower heat, following care label instructions, can prove effective.
Allowing the fabric to hang for a few hours naturally diminishes wrinkles, and storing it neatly folded in your wardrobe is a preventive measure against wrinkles and creases.
In terms of the tactile experience, ECOVERO™ typically offers a luxuriously soft feel, similar to fabrics like Tencel or Modal.
ECOVERO stands out for its exceptional breathability, especially when compared to cotton. This is attributed to its fabric structure, promoting moisture-wicking and easy air passage.
The fibers are not only soft to the touch but also water-absorbent and
quick-drying. Moreover, they exhibit resistance to moths and mildew.
