What makes Virescent products more sustainable
You can make the same product a hundred different ways. We look for the least harmful way when producing ours. This means we ask our suppliers questions like... Does a toxic ingredient need to be in there? Does the packaging make full use of recycled materials? Do you provide carbon offsetting where virgin materials are used?
Phophates produce algae blooms in water, that starve aqautic life of oxygen and can kill whole eco systems, causing serious ecological damage. That's why many countries have banned their use in cleaning products.
VOC’s can affect the environment and your own health if inhaled. Switching to low/no VOC products decrease the risk to your health.
When chemicals touch the ground, they can eventually be washed into drains which lead to ponds, rivers and the sea. These chemicals can then pollute and kill marine life. Biodegradable products break down naturally in the environment.
What packaging do you use to ship my items?
We source packaging that is made from recycled materials, wherever possible and which has been designed to be as widely recycled as possible. The purpose being so you can unpack your goods and throw the box with all labels, tape and filling straight into your recycle bin. No more non recyclable polystyrene chips, plastic wraps or plastic parcel tape to worry about.
Different local authorities may have different rules. To find out what you can recycle at home or in your local area, visit RecycleNow or your local authority website.
What about your bottles?
Our bottles use recycled plastic in their make up. This reduces the carbon footprint significantly compared to making plastic from scratch.
Is your clothing aligned to any ethical standards?
Certified in accordance in line with
Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS)
Fair Wear Foundation (FWF)
Vegan (PETA approved)
Are they made in an eco friendly process
Our clothing range is made in facilities that use renewable energy and garments are printed using water based, environmentally friendly inks.
What material are they made from?
Mostly from 100% Organic Cotton which is much softer and better quality than cheaper alternatives. See each item for specifics on materials.
What size do I need?
Sizing charts can be seen on individual item pages as they may vary from design to design. All items are unisex except where stated otherwise.
How should I wash and dry my Virescent apparel?
We recommend washing your garments cold and hanging to dry as this increases the life of the garment and consumes less electricity in the wash cycle. Why not reach out to us and ask about the eco laundry products we use.
