When you envision the future, what do you see? Environmental degradation is threatening our natural resources, and the natural habitats of many endangered species, both plants and animals. At acterix, our goal is is to make style and sustainability synonymous to protect the future of our environment. By combining breathtaking designs from up and coming designers, and sustainable materials such as bamboo, we hope to revolutionise the fashion industry.
With this goal in mind, our products and packaging have been scrupulously designed to have as little impact on the environment as possible. To make the shirts, a simple process is undertaken: The bamboo is taken and cut into pieces. At this stage, a solvent is added to soften the bamboo, making it suitable to work with as a fabric. All of our products use bamboo, which uses up to 95% less water to grow (compared to cotton), making it much more sustainable. Bamboo is also organic, as no pesticides are required to facilitate its growth. Bamboo also grows extremely quickly, with some species growing up to 91cm per day. Essentially this means that bamboo can be sustainably mass produced as a fabric without risk of deforestation. Even our packaging uses 100% recyclable cardboard, and our mailing bags are 100% biodegradable. Every decision made at acterix is made with the same goal in mind; to protect our future.
acterix is about you and your choice to save the environment. By purchasing our products you are making a choice to help us change the world, one product at a time.
