Why is our product circular?

Part of VH’s workwear collection is truly circular in that it uses raw materials such as the Ecogreen fabrics (Lyocell in combination with PETr). VH and its clients have developed a number of customer specific garments using raw materials such as PETr, Bio-Cotton, Lyocell, other recycled or recyclable products.

Which circular strategies are we applying?

  • Reduce total amount of materials: VH tries to minimize cutting waste as a way to reduce the amount of materials. When possible, packaging is reused.
  • Reduce amount of virgin inputs: VH focuses on the processing of recycled materials. We use recycled plastic bags and cardboard as packaging material.
  • Extend the useful life: Repair service
  • Maximise the reusability or recyclability of materials: The cutting waste is collected and recycled. Our circular products contain recycled and recyclable materials.

What are advantages for buyers?

Climate change, environmental issues and social responsability have become part of our daily lives, VH believes the benefits of a circular offering include:

  • It helps to minimize the environmental impact,
  • It will increase the ecological awareness amongst its staff and all its other stakeholders,
  • It will enhance social conditions,
  • The increased use of circular products will, in future, bring circular raw materials prices in line with those of traditional materials.
