For our bags, we use materials that consist of up to 100% recycled PET bottles. Plastic waste can therefore be reused, conserving our natural resources.
Sound incredible? Just watch the video and discover how a satch product evolves from used PET bottles.
Since 2011 we have put over 95 million used PET bottles (0.5 l) to new use. Would you like to know how many recycled PET bottles are in your satch product? Simply click through our slider and find out!
Making our fabrics from recycled PET materials saves a whole lot of resources compared to polyester fabrics derived from crude oil. PET recycling is twice as good: Plastic waste finds a new use and fossil raw materials are saved.
Here you can learn how many resources we have already been able to save since 2011:
With the objective to further improve working conditions within our production facilities worldwide, we are a member of the FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION (FWF).
We are proud to have achieved Fair Wear Leader Status in 2019 and to be among the few companies that have been awarded the organization's best possible status.
Together with FWF we have set ourselves the goal of continuing to improve working conditions in the textile industry. The FWF regularly checks the working conditions in our sewing rooms as well as grades our own efforts to improve working conditions in our supply chain.
With our leader status membership, we commit ourselves and our suppliers to adhere to a strict Code of conduct, the „Code of Labour Practices“.
The Code provides for the following standards:
Reasonable hours of work
Safe and healthy working conditions
We are a bluesign®️ system partner so that we pay attention to an environmentally friendly production from the beginning of our creation of value. Many of our fabric and material producers as well as their suppliers of raw materials and chemicals are also bluesign®️ system partners. Together we want to keep the impact on people and nature as low as possible when we produce our products.
bluesign®️ defines strict rules for production. Dying our fabrics in particular requires that we pay special attention to only using very specific chemicals. In addition, bluesign®️ checks that the chemicals used are completely filtered out so that they cannot get into the environment unregulated.
In addition, all bluesign® system partners commit themselves to the following five principles:
At satch, we always strive to manufacture our products in an environmentally friendly way. Most of our accessories are already certified with the Green Button: The Green Button identifies textiles produced in a socially and ecologically sustainable way.
Each and every satch product is REACH-confirmed, validiting its chemical safety. Since 2019, the waterproof coating of our products is PFC-free.
Why have we decided against PFC coatings? So-called PFC chemicals are suspected of causing cancer and are not biodegradable. They have in the meantime been detected in the water, ground, and air. That is reason enough for us to exclude them from our production process and to take one more successful step toward protecting the environment.
Responsible corporate management has been a top priority for us since our founding in 2010. For our commitment, we were awarded the German Sustainability Prize in 2016. However, that is no reason to rest on our laurels and not become still better! Go for the good feeling of satch. IT'S UP TO YOU
