Circular Economy

Recycled materials are not garbage!

Through our recycling efforts, we employ mechanical and chemical methods to transform discarded clothes, scrap fabrics left over from garment processes, and PET bottles into fiber form, effectively reducing waste and promoting circularity. Thus, we reduce the use of water, energy and chemical resources required for fiber production from scratch. Furthermore, we redirect these wastes, which would otherwise end up polluting the environment and our seas as garbage through disposal or incineration, back into the economy.

A significant amount of water is needed to grow cotton. Building upon this principle, we grant a second life to leftover cotton fabrics and discarded clothes. By using recycled cotton fabric, we reduce the production processes that exhaust the soil and make it possible to use the agricultural land that would be used for cotton cultivation from scratch for other products.

LC Waikiki Green: Nature-sensitive products in the name of nature

In our LC Waikiki Green collection, we feature products made from recycled cotton and polyester yarn, contributing to the circular economy. We support the protection of nature by recycling plastic bottles that would otherwise end up as waste in our forests and seas.

We certify the products in our collections under internationally recognized certification programs. We ensure traceability and adherence to recycling criteria by producing with fabrics certified under GRS (Global Recycle Certificate) or RCS (Recycle Claim Certificate) and subject to independent audits by accredited organizations.

Through these programs, we audit and guarantee not only the recycled content in our products, but also the ecological and social compliance of their production chain. We apply the same testing standards for both our certified and non-certified products, including those made from recycled materials.
