RETHINKING SUSTAINABILITY

Wanting to do good!

We were stuck with the question, how do you take sustainability to the next level? We found the answer in technology! By adding technology we are able to create products that gives us a plus version of sustainability which complies with UN's Sustainable Development goal #12 Responsible consumption and Production.



WASH LESS

If people skipped every other wash load worldwide, the annual greenhouse emissions would be reduced significantly, in fact we could save 235 million tons of CO2 and 22.5 billion cubic meters of water - that’s a lot! At Nordifakt we aim to lead a sustainability leap towards less waste through changed consumer behaviours. We pursue this path by making sure your home textiles can be used more and washed less, making them last longer and in the process, also making better use of the resources we already have.
That is a major contribution if you want to reduce the environmental footprint during a product’s life cycle.



PRODUCT LIFE

The antibacterial technology in our materials will extend the life of the product, because you can wash less. Washing is the main factor in the wear and tear of your textiles and a main reason why textiles are discarded.
In addition Nordifakt is using high quality materials, which also help alleviate the wear and tear.
Consumer use makes up 2/3 of the environmental footprint of a garment, and we believe in the importance of changing that. With the Nordifakt products you will save water, energy, reduce CO2 and microplastics, and your home textiles will last longer. In short, the way we care for our home textiles will make a difference.



ORGANIC COTTON

Nordifakt only use cotton that is organic. Organic cotton is cultivated without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers, pesticides or transgenic technology. It doesn't damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 62% less energy compared to conventional cotton. It also uses far less water to grow since organic cotton growers typically utilize rain far more than irrigation. It thereby supports biodiversity and biological cycles and reduces the overall environmental footprint.



LINEN

We also use linen. Linen is made from the stalks of flax plants, which are resilient species that can grow in poor soils requiring very little if any fertilizer. The linen production process has been found to be significantly less water intensive than for cotton, giving it a low water footprint. Almost all of the flax plants can be used, and with the demand for flax seeds and oils increasing in the health food industry, there is very little to no wastage of the plants. Plus, being a natural fibre it's also biodegradable.
