In celebration of World Oceans Day on June 8th, Santini is offering two solutions for washing technical cycling apparel in a sustainable way: the totally biodegradable Power Clean Sport detergent and GUPPYFRIEND special laundry bags for washing machines, that trap microplastics released from the garments when washed.
World Oceans Day is celebrated every year on June 8th, the Anniversary Day of the World Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, and it provides an opportunity to reflect on how to protect the planet’s seas and the need to interact with them in a sustainable way. To mark this day, starting from June 8th, Santini is launching two products on their website to make cyclists’ and athletes’ laundry eco-friendly.
Power Clean Sport: the biodegradable detergent for sports garments
To wash sports garments in a sustainable way, Santini has relied on Surfchimica Srl, the company that develops products for laundries with a focus on environmental sustainability, to create a specific detergent solution. The result is Power Clean Sport, a completely biodegradable detergent made without dyes and phosphates that provides sustainable washing as well as ensures that garments are kept in an optimal state.
In addition, Power Clean Sport is nickel and phosphates-free and contains no skin irritants. It is a hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested eco-friendly detergent. Power Clean Sport is on sale at www.santinicycling.com for 12.00 euros.
GUPPYFRIEND washing bags: a farewell to microplastics
Since sports garments are made of synthetic fabrics, they lose microplastic particles that inevitably end up in wastewater when they are washed. These microparticles enter the sea, where they can be eaten by marine animals and fishes. A solution to this problem is offered by GUPPYFRIEND washing bags
When garments are placed inside GUPPYFRIEND special textile weave bags, they reduce fiber breakage and retain plastic fibers that can later be recycled.
GUPPYFRIEND bags sell for 30 euros, which can be purchased at www.santinicycling.com from June 8th. Customers who purchase both products on June 8th will receive a 10% discount.
