How fashion companies can comply with the new agreement.
Zerrobarracento allows and supports smart working among its employees. The company try to raise the awareness among your employees in terms of sustainability arranging, for instance, brand sprint into the company.
The brand has a strong traced supply chain all made in Italy, and a careful selection of sustainable materials and eco-packaging. On Zerobarracento website you can see the list of all suppliers involved in the process.
The raw materials are innovative and most of all certified (Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, GRS). It is very interesting the Zerobarracento design process. Usually, around 15% of textiles go wasted during production. By developing its zero-waste technique, the brand eliminates textile waste at the design stage. This is a unique approach to reduce the use of natural resources (https://zerobarracento.com/pages/about).
The packaging is made of compostable mailers, eco-friendly tissues and stickers. The compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio-based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. These are certified and incredibly low-impact resources.
The brand provide information how to take care about the clothes and make them last longer.
