Cloos Sustainability Report: The Impact of our Eco-friendly, Biodegradable Acetate
The impact in numbers
The emission of a traditional acetate frame is approximately 4.73kg of CO2-eq. However, by using recycled, biodegradable acetate, CO2 emission is reduced dramatically, by almost 66%.
During the month of October, Christopher Cloos’ production of frames using biodegradable materials corresponded to a total reduction of CO2 emission of 9,950.75kg, which is the equivalent of pairs of jeans or 292.5 pairs of jeans or almost 25,000 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
Where we are going
From October 2020, 15% of our collection is made from the biodegradable, eco-friendly materials, well on our way to make 100% of our collection from responsible materials.
Our commitment to a more sustainable production would not have been a reality without the incredible ongoing support from all of our customers. Thus, we want to thank all of you for making our responsibility initiatives possible – together, we will make a difference.
All the best,
