Sustainable solutions made from organic materials

If you want to minimize the use of plastic in your control bracelets or key hangers, we recommend taking a look at our products made from bamboo, cotton, or linen. These products have both a sustainable appearance and support your company’s sustainable strategy. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the benefits of the different materials.

Benefits of Bamboo

  • Bamboo has become popular as a sustainable alternative to conventional textiles due to its natural properties and environmental benefits.
  • Bamboo is a fast-growing plant that does not require artificial irrigation or any pesticides or chemicals. Its sustainable cultivation process makes bamboo a more environmentally friendly solution compared to other textile fibers.
  • Bamboo textiles also have natural antibacterial properties. The plant contains a substance that helps prevent bacterial growth and odors. This makes bamboo textiles suitable for sportswear, underwear, and socks as they have a natural ability to combat odor.
  • In addition, bamboo textiles are known for their softness and breathability. The fibers in bamboo are fine and smooth, resulting in a soft and comfortable fabric. Bamboo textiles are also good at absorbing and releasing moisture, making them suitable for hot and humid climates.

Bamboo Closures

At Ikast Etiket, we also offer closures made of bamboo. We cannot completely eliminate plastic in the closures because they also need to be secure – and as an event organizer, you need to be able to trust that the closures on your bracelets will keep them closed. The bamboo closures contain 50% less plastic than our standard closures.

Benefits of Organic Cotton

There are many advantages to organic cotton compared to conventionally grown cotton. A significant factor is the use of pesticides and insecticides, which is completely excluded when it comes to organic cultivation. Pesticides and insecticides do not disappear from the cotton just because the material is turned into textile fibers, but instead, the toxins are released from the fabric when we wear the cotton against our skin and sweat. Additionally, the farmers who grow cotton are particularly vulnerable as they come into contact with these harmful substances every day. In organic cotton production, water consumption is significantly lower compared to conventional production.

Benefits of Linen

Linen is an ancient material that you are likely familiar with from your summer wardrobe. Linen is highly absorbent, making it great for preventing sweat. When linen plants are turned into textiles, much less water is used compared to producing the same amount of cotton.

Linen plants are also highly resistant and can grow in soil where other plants do not thrive. Compared to cotton, more chemicals are used when converting cotton plants into textiles, so if you are unsure whether to choose cotton or linen, linen has more positives in this regard.

If you want a bracelet or key hanger with many colors, you should consider cotton or bamboo.

What is important to you when buying control bracelets or key hangers? Do you prefer organic or sustainable alternatives over more conventional ones?

Also, consider whether it is important to you that the product visibly has a more sustainable profile either through the choice of materials or by adding logos and icons to the products.
