Using recycled materials
instead of virgin materials saves water, energy and chemicals. In addition of
that, material that otherwise becomes waste can be saved and reused. From
Lovanna's selection you can find the following recycled materials: recycled
polyamides Q-Nova and Reco-Nylon. Recycled elastane Roica Eco Smart.
Cotton is soft and very
breathable fiber. In lingerie it's commonly used on the crotch to avoid extra
irritation to the intimate area.
However there's some ethical
and ecological problems with cotton production. Insecticides and pesticides
used in cultivation cause for example health problems for farmers, pollute air
and water, damage soil and reduce biodiversity.
There are some alternatives
for regular cotton. With Organic cotton production the problems of toxic
chemicals are avoided. However the production consumes a lot of water.
From Lovanna's selection you
can find GOTS certified organic cotton.
