PET bottles. iQ-UV clothing for leisure and outdoor activities consists of 64% recycled PET bottles. Our production is purely mechanical, without any use of chemicals (Tencel - botanical fibres made from renewable cellulose). With each iQ-UV shirt, you can reduce the gigantic mountain of plastic waste by five PET bottles, which also reduces the CO² emissions caused by burning these bottles by three kilograms per kilogram of material. More tragic - and unfortunately unknown to many - is the water usage in the traditional production of fashion. Around 22,000 litres are needed for one kilogram of cotton, around 43 litres for polyester and only three litres per kilogram for recycling PET bottles and production of the high-quality "UV protection double face" iQ-UV materials. In addition, there is no need for pesticides in the production of recycled materials. In addition, there is no need for pesticides in the production of recycled materials. In contrast, 167 different pesticides are used to produce one kilogram of cotton. Toxins you'd rather avoid in your body.
UV protective clothing is the most sustainable sun protection. Each IQ-UV shirt reduces plastic waste by up to 40 tubes of sunscreen and saves thousands of litres of precious fresh water compared to cotton. Our environmentally friendly materials are free of harmful substances that could end up in waste water during production. We manufacture our fabrics and sew our clothes under fair working conditions in France, Italy, Poland and Portugal. Sustainability and fairness are very important to us.
Sustainability – Made in Europe. iQ-UV is committed not only to skin protection but also protects the environment. We produce in Europe, we ensure short transport distances and we use recycled raw materials for our products. An unbeatable carbon footprint is the payoff that also gives our customers a peace of mind every time they make a purchase.
