Our sustainability policy goes beyond just recycling and applies to all aspects of our brand.
At Lefrik, sustainability and timeless design are not just words but integral parts of our core values. Our goal is to create products that are practical, functional, and environmentally responsible, and that you can use for years to come. We achieve this by using lightweight, durable, and innovative materials in every design and paying attention to the smallest details.
Our recycled RPET fabrics are manufactured without using new natural resources and offer great advantages such as being 100% waterproof, very light, resistant and vegan.
RPET OXFORD FABRIC: Our classic core fabric. Great performance with all shades of colour, high durability, 100% waterproof, lightweight and easy to clean.
RPET RIPSTOP: This fabric is PU coated, making it 100% weather resistant, scratch resistant, extra light and easy to wipe clean. With it we are achieving durability and functionality in our best-selling products.
ULTRALIGHT RPET RIPSTOP lining: offering a soft and durable finish to the interiors of all our products.
In 2022 we produce 92,000 backpacks, meaning we recycle 2.5 million plastic bottles.
What is the real environmental impact of using RPET compared to virgin polyester (PET) fabrics?
In data analysed by Dcycle, we know that in the manufacture of our iconic Scout model, we can save up to 43% of the water used in a traditional backpack, the equivalent of 23 full bathtubs, or 16 in its smaller version, Scout Mini. In addition, climate change emissions and fossil fuel consumption are reduced by 11% and 22% respectively thanks to the use of recycled fabrics versus virgin fabrics.
But beyond recycling, our sustainability policy applies to all areas of the brand. Over the last few years we have been working to find the right partners; people who not only comply with our sustainability criteria based on social and environmental best practice, but who also share our belief in doing the right thing for people and the planet.
In recent years, we have worked diligently to find partners who share our values and commitment to social and environmental best practices. We prioritize quality, traceability, and sustainability throughout the entire product lifecycle, with the ultimate goal of achieving a circular model that allows for the recycling of our products.
We strive to be recognized not only for our products, but also for our unwavering dedication to doing what’s right for people and the planet. Our approach is grounded in sensory engagement and centered around people, ensuring that our actions always prioritize their well-being.
