We accept a new challenge, but we will only achieve this goal with your help.

movin® develops products with sustainable materials, the so-called “smart materials”, which, among other benefits, reduce or even eliminate water consumption, avoid the use of harmful chemicals and contribute to reducing carbon emissions in all production stages . However, even with this initiative, we managed to reach a maximum of 20% of the impacts of a piece of clothing. In order to have more reach, we need your help to minimize the impact of the remaining 80%. As? Some tips below.

//// carbon and environmental footprint

The term “carbon footprint” refers to the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions, which are caused directly or indirectly by an individual, an organization, an event or simply a product.
Based on this data, we researched tips and suggestions so that you can reduce your emissions during the useful life (post-purchase) of your movin® product.

//// storage

Keep your products in an airy place with indirect light. This prevents the spread of fungi and bacteria and the unpleasant smell of mold. A new wash, ironing and all hygiene processes will be avoided.

//// washing instructions

Did you know that up to 80% of carbon emissions occur after purchase and mostly in the washing and drying process? These steps are very important for measuring the carbon footprint.
Always observe the washing instructions available on the labels or silk screen of your product. Following these instructions will increase the useful life of the part, eliminating the need to repurchase, in addition to reducing your impact on the environment. During the wash, separate the colors properly, add only the necessary amount of detergent and gather as much laundry as possible at once. Use refills and recycle the packaging of all products used in this step.

//// wash temperature

Washing clothes in hot water (above 30 degrees celsius) is known to be an effective way of cleaning. However, to heat the water we emit more carbon. To replace this method, there are now non-toxic and/or biodegradable detergent options that allow a result equivalent to cleaning with hot water (it's always good to keep an eye on non-toxic and/or biodegradable products available on the market). In addition, not using hot water preserves the color of your clothes and the original appearance of your product.

//// dry clean

This method should be an exception as most of our clothes are made for everyday use. Around 85% of dry cleaning equipment uses perchlorethylene or tetrachloroethene which, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, are highly toxic chemical compounds for the skin and your health. This is the so-called dry cleaning fluid. ( read here ).

//// fabric softener

Choose non-toxic and/or biodegradable fabric softeners. Avoid its use if your clothing has spaced seam stitching, to increase the durability of your piece.

//// drying

Make the most of nature and all its generosity: if possible, dry your clothes on an outside clothesline instead of machine drying, in order to increase the useful life of your garments and avoid problems such as shrinkage. Opt for an airy location that is protected from the sun. If you want to expose yourself to the sun, let it be for a short time. Sunlight can be a great ally, as it eliminates bacteria, enhances whiteness and leaves your clothes fresh. But remember: for a short time, as it can also burn colored clothes or make them rough.

/// ironing

Read the ironing instructions on the labels or silk screen of your piece correctly and adjust to the indicated temperature. Reduce the use of iron whenever possible and save energy. A tip is to hang pieces on the clothesline with a hanger, leaving them aligned during drying.

//// washing indications by type of raw material

//// natural fibers (cotton/linen/silk/wool)

Natural fibers are comfortable and flexible. They have a pleasant touch and greater breathability.
Wash in cold/lukewarm water and use mild detergents (prefer non-toxic and/or biodegradable ones). More delicate fabrics such as linen or silk should be hand washed. Avoid tumble drying as the process can shrink your piece. Line dry your clothes, outdoors if possible. As natural fiber fabrics wrinkle more easily, one way to optimize the ironing process is to avoid strong twisting after rinsing, so the clothes go to the dryer less wrinkled. Depending on the piece, you can dry it hanging on a hanger, which will make ironing easier.
When in doubt, always observe the washing instructions that come with your garment.

//// artificial or synthetic fibers (polyester/polyamide/viscose/elastane)

These fibers are resistant and maintain their original color for longer.
Wash in cold/lukewarm water as they are heat sensitive. Use mild detergents (prefer non-toxic and/or biodegradable ones). Synthetic fabrics dry faster, which often does not require spinning. Therefore, try to dry your clothes on a clothesline and, if possible, outdoors.
They are also more practical to iron. But be careful with the temperature, as they burn easily.
When in doubt, always observe the washing instructions that come with your garment.

//// product repair

We want our products to stay with you longer. We suggest that throughout its use, instead of discarding the piece, repair it.
This can often be done with simple adjustments. We suggest the following sites that offer repair tips:

//// be creative, donate or return

We are committed to encouraging and developing the circular economy, where the product will always be part of a continuous cycle. We want a movin® product not to end up in a landfill or be incinerated. The product must be reused (upcycling), resold, passed on, returned or recycled.

//// reuse

Reinvent your piece. Make a cut, sew a new detail or even create new combinations to renew the style. This way you can extend the use of your product. Encourage upcycling, form groups of friends to rework your pieces together. Will be fun!

//// reselling

Take advantage of used product sales platforms such as ebay and facebook to resell parts you no longer want. You can collect money to invest in a trip, for example.

//// transfer

If you don't want to reuse or resell, pass on your pieces to friends and family or donate (in good condition) to institutions that need clothing items. The gesture of donating is so nice and the emotional gain outweighs any financial aspect. Some organizations, such as the Salvation Army, collect at your address ( Salvation Army ). Everything is facilitated. However, personally donating and seeing the reaction of those who win is also very cool.

//// return

We at movin® have started a product return campaign. This initiative is part of our rules, as we are committed to a circular economy and guide consumers towards optimal rerouting. Therefore, if you cannot reuse, resell or pass on/donate your piece, we indicate an address where you can send us your movin® product again. And you can let us take care of it! We emphasize that we are unable to accept non- movin® products at this time and that we cannot assume the cost of reshipping them for ourselves. The return of the product is voluntary and we count on your cooperation. We give discounts and promotions to those who choose to help prevent our products from ending their useful life in a landfill or being incinerated.
Movin® products that have biodegradable properties must also follow the same process. Even if the item is compostable, the landfill should be avoided. Correct rerouting is the solution.
