Our partner PYUA has received two awards at the same time for its incredible and unique sustainability concept. We’re very pleased to know this young winter sports and outdoor brand is being so successful!
During the GreenTec Awards 2017 in Berlin, which takes place yearly, PYUA was the winner within the textile and fashion category. The brand’s Closed-Loop-Recycling system enables the company to manufacture products from recycled materials and then recycle these over and over thanks to the unique global return system. This means that PYUA manages to reduce the energy used to create polyester yarn to one fifth, while CO2 emissions are reduced to a quarter. We’ve already told you about this impressive system in another post - you can refresh your memory here.
Apart from the GreenTec Award, the brand has also won the German Ski Federation’s ECO Award 2017. This prize is given out for outstanding progress in the areas of technical environmental protection and sustainable development.
