BP Bio Cycle
SUSTAINABILITY PRACTISED ON THE PRODUCTWorkwear, apparel made from reworx® textiles Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM silver level
Feeling the difference
Building on the textile innovation reworx®* from the company Lauffenmühle, we have developed the BP Bio Cycle collection concept. BP Bio Cycle is the first Cradle to Cradle workwear collection of reworx® textiles to be certified. It has been awarded the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Silver** certificate.
The blended fabric reworx® consists of a biodegradable synthetic fibre and a wood cellulose fibre. Under the correct composting conditions and after the end of its use it once again becomes part of the biological cycle. In addition, reworx® offers all the advantages of a standard blended fabric: long durability, a high degree of suppleness and a silky gloss. It is colourfast and quickly absorbs moisture.
BP Bio Cycle is a workwear concept for hospitals and practices, which combines social and ecological sustainability with BP‘s typical requirement for comfort, durability and washability.
Workwear Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Silver* Frequently asked questions:
Who disposes of the product?
After using the goods, simply return them to BP; together with our partners, we will take care of the composting. This is because the product only becomes part of the biological cycle again under the correct composting conditions.
Does the product decompose while it is being worn?
No, the product only starts to decompose under industrial composting conditions. Its durability is the same as that of all other BP products.
Do you notice differences when wearing it?
No. The product is just as comfortable to wear as fabrics containing 50% cotton/50% polyester, e.g. Comfortec® from the company Lauffenmühle. In addition to the usual advantages of blended fabrics, it also offers other benefits: The fabric ensures a balanced climate, absorbs moisture faster and also dries very quickly.
What do you need to note when washing the product?
Just the washing instructions. The products are boil-proof and suitable for industrial laundering (in accordance with ISO 15797). Otherwise they are washed in the same way as any other blended fabric.
