ECO-FRIENDLY OPTIONS New Wave Group aim to introduce more sustainable and eco-friendly materials in our range of products. We want to increase the amount of products coming from sustainable sources and help our customers to imbed social and environmental criteria in their purchasing decisions. With that said, let us proudly present some examples of products developed with extra care of people and planet! COTTOVER In spring 2015, we launched the brand COTTOVER – a complete eco-labeled garment collection certified by Nordic Ecolabel and GOTS. The cotton is organic, which means it is grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and Fairtrade-certified which ensures fair economic and social conditions for the cotton farmers. The polyester is recycled from old PET-bottles and we have applied social and environmental criteria throughout the whole supply chain – from raw material to finished garment. The garments have also been independently quality tested in order to pass the requirements of Nordic Ecolabel. We are proud to be able to offer a complete assortment of sustainable clothing, cooperating with four different third party-certifications - Nordic Ecolabel, GOTS, Faitrade,and Oeko Tex. Cottover is available in plenty of models, sizes and colours – to ensure that the sustainable choice also equals to the attractive choice.
