Changes to fabrics to improve our environmental impact
Recycled polyester yarn is used for the hat lining. Using recycled polyester helps avoid the use of petroleum-based resources.
The black lining is dyed using a dope dye process. Pigments are added to the yarn during the manufacturing process. This reduces the environmental impact on water (consumption and pollution), and there are environmentally-friendly dyes.
A rating for comparing products environmental impact
The product's environmental impacts are calculated throughout its life cycle and with different indicators.
An overall ABCDE rating is performed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of products with each other (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks,...).
Decathlon is a committed stakeholder in this environmental labelling approach.
