At Sittingsuits we take our responsibility seriously, and try to implement sustainable solutions at every step. As part of our Nordic DNA, this is a natural choice and we will continue to improve on all parameters.
The padding for all our garments are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, which has been transformed into new fibers.
This means we do not produce any new padding: thus saving energy, water and resources. We hope that all of our materials will be 100% recycled in the future.
All of our fabrics have been tested for harmful chemicals.
Whenever possible, we use recycled or recyclable packaging for our shipments. All webshop orders are shipped off in locally produced recycled plastic bags.
Sittingsuits are designed to last. For restaurants, who would previously be discarding huge amounts of blankets and implementing, soon-to-be-banned, outdoor patio heaters in the colder seasons, Sittingsuits are the sustainable choice! Wet Sittingsuits air-dry within minutes. No tumble dry is ever necessary.
We urge our customers to donate their used and discarded Sittingsuits to suitable charities, such as refugee camps and homeless shelters, to prolong the usage time.
We’re partnering with ECOCART to empower the Sittingsuits community to make their orders 100% carbon neutral.
For every one of our amazing items that ships, you can now offset the specific carbon footprint with a positive environmental impact! This means the full carbon emissions from producing, manufacturing, and shipping your favorite Sittingsuits products to your door would be completely neutralized. Now you can rest easy knowing that shopping at Sittingsuits means making a positive impact on the planet.
What does it mean to offset emissions?
It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of manufacturing and shipping items at Sittingsuits, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.
How does it work?
Now, each time someone checks the carbon neutral box at Sittingsuits checkout, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our friends at EcoCart.
These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.
