The brand consciously chooses to produce in Europe. From sourcing to the assembly of the clothes, everything takes place in Europe. Because of this, the whole production chain falls under strict European legislation and increases the chances of ethical working conditions.
In addition to making environmental commitments, MOOV360 also cares about people. That’s why they also donate one % of their turnover to charity projects such as Run for Hope, an organisation that supports physiotherapy for children with cancer.
The main material that MOOV360 uses to produce their clothes is ECONYL. This is regenerated nylon yarn made from recycled fishing nets and other industrial waste. This material is mostly combined with a percentage of elastane to ensure good elasticity and strength of the garments.
Their clothes carry the Oeko-tex label. This means that there are no harmful substances in the final products. On top of that, MOOV360 packs their clothing in envelopes made from recycled paper in order to avoid waste.
Unfortunately ECONYL, like all non-natural fabrics, does release microplastics when it's being worn and washed. These little microplastics eventually end up in the ocean again. Want to avoid microplastics ending up in the ocean? Use a GuppyFriend bag when washing your MOOV360 sportswear.
MOOV360 is committed to keep on researching better and more natural alternatives for their collections. However ,at the moment ECONYL is the best choice for the high endurance sportswear that MOOV360 makes.
Luckily MOOV360 does make great efforts to clean the ocean. The brand is involved in cleaning the ocean and preserving marine fauna by giving 1% of its turnover to Healthy Seas.
The MOOV360 sportswear is mainly made from recycled materials certified by the Global Recycling Standard. Therefore, the brand fits into the circular economy.
However, the textiles that the brand uses consist of a mix of Econyl and elastane. Because of this, the fabric is hard to recycle again into new thread in its end-of-life.
Luckily, the brand does has solutions for this.
Their scrap material gets turned into handy and one of a kind sports bags.
When you’re done wearing your MOOV360 garment, you can return it to the brand. You get a 10% discount on your next order and your end-of-life garment gets transformed into sports accessories. This way no material gets wasted!
All products at MOOV360 are fully produced in Europe. The fishing nets for the production of ECONYL are collected in Slovenia. The textile production and assembly of the clothes happen in Italy and the finishing touches (such as adding hand tags) are done in Belgium. The total distance between the fishing nets collected and the final product sent to Belgium is 1.750 kilometres.
MOOV360's products are engineered to endure intensive sporting activity for years. The clothes have minimalist designs which also help make them timeless.
The brand is transparent through the storytelling on its website.
