Polygiene – Stays fresh

Polygiene technology makes clothes stay fresh and odor free so they can be washed less frequently.

The more you wear a garment between washes, the more you reduce the environmental impacts that occur during its lifecycle.
Recycled materials, safer chemicals, and lifecycle analysis are just a few examples of the steps apparel brands are taking to understand and reduce their impacts on the environment.

While these efforts are important, consumers can do even more to reduce the environmental impact of apparel simply by washing clothes less frequently. Polygiene technology enables this by controlling odor in textiles. If we all Wash Less, we reduce our carbon footprint, extend the life of our clothing and save energy, water, time and money.

Description

How does Polygiene StayFresh™ work?

Polygiene StayFresh™ is a 24/7 working odor-control textile technology that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria that typically cause that unpleasant ‘sweat smell .’ The solution is based on silver chloride, which occurs naturally in water and soil. Silver ions in the salt prevent bacteria from multiplying and thus also prevent bad odors directly at the source.
As Polygiene StayFresh™ is integrated into products at the manufacturing stage, it is only active in the material itself. This ensures it is entirely safe for use in clothing and does not interfere with natural bacteria on the skin. The result is textiles that feel fresh and require less washing. By washing items less frequently, customers save water and energy, reduce their environmental footprint and benefit from more durable, longer-lasting products. Polygiene StayFresh™ isn’t on stuff. Polygiene is IN stuff. So it remains effective for the useful lifetime of the garment.

AT A GLANCE: Exploring the benefits of Polygiene StayFresh™

Beneficial for the USER and the ENVIRONMENT
The benefits associated with Polygiene Freshness™ technologies fall into two main categories – personal user benefits and environmental benefits.

Personal user benefits

● Odor-control in clothing and textiles. And the confidence that comes with feeling fresh. Nobody wants smelly clothes.
● Less time washing means more time on the things you want to do.
● Longer-lasting products mean you replace your love pieces less often and you save
money.
● Reduced energy, detergent and water consumption help cut costs.

● Active contribution: Understanding the importance of sustainable products results in
more Mindful Living™ and helps reduce our ecological footprint.

Environmental benefits

● Less frequent washing reduces energy and water consumption. Skipping every other wash can save 51 kWh and 3,800 liters of water a year – for more information have a look at the recently published LCA (by SWECO).
● Longer-lasting textiles mean extended product cycles and promote the transition from
fast-fashion consumables to more eco-friendly durables. Of course, hygienically fresh, long-lasting products become even more relevant with regard to the second-hand market.
● Fewer washes mean less microfiber shedding and fewer microplastics damaging delicate ecosystems.

Understanding Polygiene’s place in the world

Today, we understand the threats to the planet and natural environments better than ever. We recognize that we must change how we manufacture, consume, and care for products. We need to think less disposable and more sustainable.

At the same time, a whole host of societal factors make sustainable products a more attractive proposition for consumers, too. Rising energy prices are compounding the cost of living crisis. Water shortages are causing problems across the globe. And many of us are experiencing the consequences of environmental degradation first-hand. Consumers desire environmentally friendly products that help them live more sustainably.

Promoting sustainability and more Mindful Living
We believe Polygiene Freshness™ technologies can make practices and processes at every stage of the consumer cycle more sustainable. Integrating our solution into products during manufacturing means no additional water or energy is required. Odor-control technology reduces resource consumption once products are purchased. And longer-lasting textiles ensure you don’t have to replace items as regularly, further limiting your environmental impact.

Here at Polygiene®, we encourage partners and product users to think more about their impact on the world around them. We want people to understand that everything we do and buy affects the environment. And we want people to recognize that making small changes can have significant results. We call this new way of thinking Mindful Living.
