Esprit, based in Ratingen, plans to offer 100 percent sustainable clothing within the next two years. The organization has recently released a booklet outlining its environmental corporate goals. According to a Spin off report, Esprit currently makes more than 60% of its Ecollection with sustainable materials. The incorporation of resource-saving as well as recycled materials is of particular importance to the company. Its manufacturing processes are based on water- and energy-saving techniques that do not require the use of chemicals. The majority of Esprit’s collections are made from cotton grown according to organic standards, i.e. without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. However, the organization also employs certified recycled cotton and Better Cotton. Other materials used by the group include linen, which is 100% biodegradable and water-saving, Tencel from Lenzing, which is made from lyocell based on the eucalyptus plant, and Lenzing’s Ecovero, a viscose fiber certified with the EU eco-label and obtained from wood sourced from environmentally friendly managed forests.
