In organic livestock farming, sheep are fed organic feed and the company does not keep more animals than the land can handle. However, this does not mean that all the criteria for guaranteeing animal welfare are met. Although the attention paid to animal welfare in organic livestock farming is greater than in conventional livestock farming. Organic farming ensures that the animals are naturally healthier and that they stay that way.
All materials at Engel are natural (wool, silk, cotton). They are easier to recycle and break down more quickly. In addition, there are no artificial substances and therefore no microplastics. This is definitely a plus!
In addition, most of the garments at Engel are made from one material, making them easier to recycle after use. Engel insists on the quality of its fabrics, so the clothes have a longer lifespan and you can easily pass them on to other children. The neutral colors make the clothing timeless, so the beautiful sleep sacks and pantsuits can be passed down from generation to generation.
To protect the clothing from dirt, moisture, and moths during transport, it is packed in plastic bags. To reduce waste, Engel uses recycled polyethylene.
