FAQ's

Why are biodegradable fabrics sustainable? How does it help the environment? 

Every product at the end of its usable life, when it is disposed of as waste, produces an impact on the environment. Products that are not biodegradable, more specifically, do not decompose after they have been landfilled, which of course is extremely detrimental in environmental terms. On the other hand, products with enhanced biodegradability, like Mana Threads fabrics, have a limited environmental impact because, after landfilling, they are turned into organic matter (biomass) and biogas which can become new resources of energy for the environment, as well as being used for combined heat and power production.

How does it work? What are the necessary conditions for its biodegradation?

The chemical structure of synthetic fibers, generally speaking, does not allow for bacterial penetration, which makes the degradation process more complex and slower. Mana Threads fabrics, on the other hand, are produced using enhanced polyamide, which – under landfill conditions – facilitates access and digestion of waste material by bacteria, thus accelerating the biodegradation process.

What happens if a consumer disposes of the product incorrectly?

In an outdoor environment, our fabrics are inert and decompose slowly. Therefore, if garments are disposed of incorrectly, it is advisable to collect it and send it to recycling or biodegradation in a landfill.

Since it is biodegradable, is it not likely to smell or deteriorate after use?

Every product at the end of its usable life, when it is disposed of as waste, produces an impact on the environment. Products that are not biodegradable, more specifically, do not decompose after they have been landfilled, which of course is extremely detrimental in environmental terms. On the other hand, products with enhanced biodegradability, like Mana Threads fabrics, have a limited environmental impact because, after landfilling, they are turned into organic matter (biomass) and biogas which can become new resources of energy for the environment, as well as being used for combined heat and power production.

Is this product free of toxic substances?

Yes, definitely. All of our fabrics are indeed Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class 1 certified, to guarantee the absence of substances which could harm the health of adults, children and babies. Oeko-Tex is actually the independent control and certification system which certifies the safety of textile products for human use.
