Recognised by Canford
Some products in this category are Recognised by Canford due to Lowepro’s environmental consideration while designing and manufacturing. Here’s how Lowepro explain their ‘Green Pledge’:
“By 2024, you’ll see the green line on all our products and packaging. It will tell you exactly what we’re doing to manufacture our bags more sustainably. While never compromising on quality, we’re reducing the amount of resources we use and the emissions we create.
The green line score tells you the percentage of responsibly-sourced fabric content we’ve used to produce our bags. These include the amount of recycled and solution dyed fabrics. All our recycled content is calculated following the GRI 301-2 standard, measuring the weight of recycled yarn compared to the total yarn. We measure our solution dye percent by weight using the same method.
Recycled Polyester (rPET) = -50% CO2 emissions
rPET is made from post-consumer recycled drinks bottles, which saves energy and potentially reduces waste going into landfills and habitats.
Recycled Nylon = reduced CO2 emissions
Recycled industrial waste stock uses less energy than making virgin nylon, while giving waste a second life and reducing our use of petroleum.
PFC-Free DWR = 100% perfluorinated chemicals and polyfluorinated chemicals-free
Beginning in 2024, we’re transitioning away from PFC Durable Water Resistant (DWR) coatings, which we add to fabrics to make them water resistant - to a perfluorinated chemical and polyfluorinated chemical-free (PFC-free) version.
Recycled Polybags = 100% recycled LDPE
We now use 100% recycled LDPE (low density polyethylene) for our bags, cutting our carbon emissions and reducing our use of virgin petroleum.
Hangtags from responsibly-sourced paper = 100% FSC-certified
In 2020, we introduced 100% FSC-certified hangtags with paper from responsible sources and began to eliminate coatings that take more energy to produce and aren’t easily recycled. FSC certification means our paper is made with a mixture of materials from FSC-certified forests, recycled materials, and/or FSC-controlled wood.
Solution-Dyed Polyester = -80% water consumption
Solution Dyeing involves dyeing fibers before they’re woven into yarn, helping us save significant amounts of energy and water while reducing the use of chemicals. Plus, it improves colour fastness to UV because colours are locked into fibers, ensuring higher colour uniformity.”
