Patchwork - Tote Bags
Green Journey - INSPIRED by creativity & uniqueness. In a carbon-neutral facility, designers and their teams will produce new clothing in order to further extend the life-cycle of post-consumer goods. Our bags represent upcycling in their eco friendly design.
A digital take-back infrastructure that works online and offline with an application-based voucher reward system incentivises the reuse of sustainably made textiles. This take-back process will systematically lead the clothing industry towards textile circularity.
One of our innovations is to tokenize our raw materials and reimburse the consumer with digital vouchers. The consumer can now claim his or her voucher in the form of a token by simply returning their used textiles to designated drop-off points. This will become an innovative development that will revolutionize textile circularity.
Textiles should be returned to the same place where they were initially sold. In order to facilitate the collection of used textiles, we have reimagined and redesigned collection boxes that can be customized to reflect our partner’s unique interests.
Mission and Vision Statements
Artus Group acts as a servicing company for, and solution provider to, fashion retailers. We close the loop within our circular recycling facilities for post-consumer goods by feeding recycled fiber back into the production cycle and making our global overstock trading network available to clients.
Artus Group is focused on protecting clients interests by maintaining transparency in all activities, leading technological innovation and upholding a responsible and sustainable position towards both the community and environment.
Designing Eco-Friendly Products
Waste minimization is a set of processes and practices intended to reduce the amount of waste produced. By reducing or eliminating the generation of harmful and persistent waste, brands can support efforts to promote more sustainable practices.
Reducing Process Waste
The end-of-life production of recyclable textiles helps to reduce chemical and material waste. The creation of multiple uses for recycled textiles extends its life cycle. Artus Group considers each step in the sorting process to determine the reusability of the textile.
Optimizing Consumption through Sustainable Ecosystems
Textiles should be returned to the place where they were initially sold. This, in turn, extends the textile’s life-cycle.The take-back of post-consumer textiles coupled with our recycling capabilities and global partnerships allows us to continue our mission of helping brands achieve circularity.
Building a take-back infrastructure around a brand is one thing. However, in order to encourage consumers to purchase sustainable products, we have devised an innovative reward system to bring the customers a step closer to reducing their carbon footprint.
Artus Group is currently working with the German Red Cross to modernize the collection process. Through vertically integrated retail partners, Artus Group can positively influence the German Red Cross’s value chain through direct marketing. Additionally, Artus Group provides infrastructure for retail partners to offer its customers on-line or in-store collection services.
Encouraging Social Responsibility
Part of our business structure consists of providing our partners with social incentives to participate in our mission of promoting equality within the workplace. Our sustainable business model enables us to be inclusive and maintain our diverse work environment.
Investing in Infrastructure
Developing a scalable, take-back focused infrastructure requires global partnerships. We are currently looking for the best possible way to expand our expertise and work with brands on a global scale.
Developing Markets for Recycled Materials
We are proud to deliver our participating partners with recycled materials from post- consumer goods. We believe that the world will systematically embrace a circular system. This change, however, requires not only a sustainable business model, but also the right partnerships.
What Artus Group has done for the world...
Savings are calculated based on the use of recycled cotton versus virgin cotton fiber.
Cotton consumes large amounts of water. The diversion of cotton from waterways for irrigation has caused drought conditions in several areas of the world.
kg PO4 - eg Phosphate
Chemicals are used to recover cotton fibers. Dye processing takes place in large volumes; therefore, it has a high impact on water pollution and C02 emissions.
kg CO2 - eg Carbon Dioxide
The textile industry is one of the largest greenhouse gas producers on earth, causing the widespread use of a petroleum-based synthetic scope.
kg Ethane - eg
Approximately 10 to 20% of all textiles in the fashion industry are estimated to become waste, 95% of all textiles that are landfilled every year could be recycled.
kg SO2 - eg Sulphur Dioxide
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is a pungent corrosive gas that arises predominantly from the burning of coal or crude oil in power plants and from factories that produce chemicals.
MJ Primary Energy
It is estimated that it takes up to 1 trillion kWh of electricity to produce 60 billion kilograms of fabrics worldwide.
