Sustainability

At Vico Robes we care about the planet and want to play our part in protecting it by doing everything in our power to reduce, reuse and recycle.  Our soft fleece inner linings on our waterproof changing robes  and our  microfibre poncho robes are made from regenerated materials such as plastic water bottles and bags. These plastic products known as PET (polyethylene terephthalate) products are collected, sorted and recycled. Using this kind of technology to recycle waste is a huge step forward to a greener, safer and cleaner planet.

Our products carry  the GRS Global Recycled Standard certification which is  a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling.

The garments also  CE certified  indicating conformity with health, safety and environmental protection standards for products sold within the EEA

Most organic clothing manufacturers these days use low-impact dyes, which can also be referred to as azo-free or fiber-reactive dyes. Vico Robes are certified Azo - free.  They are also Oeko-Tex 100 certified meaning they do not contain any toxic or allergic substances.

Our postal packaging is made from 100% biodegradeable material.

Moreover all our  products are designed to be highly durable so that you probably will only ever need one . And in the unlikely event  you do want to dispose of your item you can rest assured that all our materials are 100% recyclable.  So...that water bottle that makes up the inner fleece lining could well with the right care end up as a water bottle again!

Using eco-friendly processes, producing less waste, and improving product quality will help the environment and we are committed to playing our part by  continually reviewing and assessing our own processes. And as we go greener we will be proudly sharing those details with you along the way
