Biodegrad­able fleece tack­les pol­lu­tion

Action Asia - - NEWS & VIEWS -

ITAL­IAN FAB­RIC com­pany Pon­te­torto and Ger­man out­door brand Vaude have in­tro­duced a brushed-back fleece fea­tur­ing an in­ner sur­face made with biodegrad­able fi­bres. Un­like con­ven­tional fleece, Biopile is free of polyester and mi­croplas­tics, so any fi­bre lost dur­ing wash­ing will de­com­pose with­out leav­ing a harm­ful residue in around three months. The smoother outer sur­face, mean­while, is made with 100% re­cy­cled polyester. Avail­able in three weights, Biopile is said to have ex­cel­lent cli­mate reg­u­lat­ing and mois­ture trans­port­ing prop­er­ties and will be in­tro­duced ex­clu­sively in Vaude’s Fall/win­ter 2018-19 Green Shape Core col­lec­tion.
