Die Circular Collection – unser erstes 100% zirkuläre Shirt! - NIKIN EU

The Circular Collection – our first 100% circular shirt!

We at NIKIN believe in a greener future and see sustainability as our mission. That's why we are powerful proud to finally  our first 100% circular product, the TreeShirt Circular, to introduce. 

Circular fashion is a sustainable approach in which clothing and textiles are developed so that they can be reused or recycled at the end of their life cycle. Instead of disposable fashion that ends up in the trash after a short time, clothing should last longer and conserve resources.

This can be achieved, for example, by using recycled materials or through design strategies that make clothing easier to repair or reuse. Circular fashion is an important step towards sustainability and an awareness that we need to protect our resources.

Forever Young: our TreeShirt Circular is immortal 

Our TreeShirt Circular is the first 100% circular NIKIN product - of course we are particularly proud of that. It is made of textile fibers that are reused at the end of their life, is biodegradable and compostable. This means that not only does it decompose quickly and without harm to the environment, but it can also become valuable compost.

Once you have worn out the shirt, you can simply send it back to us so that it can be broken down into its natural components using an industrial composting process. These are then reused as biogas, biomass, water and minerals.

Highest environmental standards – thank you OceanSafe 

The TreeShirt Circular is not only 100% circular, but also Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold certified. This means that it is made using environmentally friendly materials and that all chemicals involved in the manufacturing process are nature-friendly. Thanks to OceanSafe we ​​can use biodegradable synthetic textile fibers and yarns that fit perfectly with the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold approach. Our TreeShirts Circular are made from 100% naNea, a biodegradable polyester. The best part? NaNea not only saves water and reduces CO2 emissions, but also does not release toxic chemicals.

Not garbage, just compost 

OceanSafe requires certified brands like us to set up a take-back system when products have reached the end of their useful life. In return, OceanSafe helps us gain access to industrial composting or fiber-to-fiber recycling facilities so that we can close the loop and our products don't end up in a clothing waste heap. That's why we have developed a simple return process for you. You can find more information about this here.

How to make your everyday life more sustainable

Aside from our TreeShirt Circular, there are other ways to make your everyday life more environmentally friendly.  

  1. We say it again and again: avoid disposable products such as plastic bags, disposable bottles and disposable tableware.  

  2. Repair instead of throwing away. It's simple as that. 

  3. Thrift stores, flea markets and online platforms are great places to find used products. 

  4. Compost organic waste to turn it into valuable nutrients for your garden or plants. 

  5. Use environmentally friendly cleaning products to reduce the use of chemicals. 

  6. Last but not least: Wear your existing clothes for as long as possible. Environmentally friendly detergents help to promote longevity. 

            With the tips, but also with the Circular Collection, we would like to encourage you to be part of a sustainable future - #treebytree
