Mizuno is working to develop more environmentally-friendly apparel.
Apparel production involves processes in which individual parts are cut out from the materials used to make them. Depending on the configuration of the parts cut out in this way, large amounts of unused materials can sometimes be left over.
At Mizuno, we’re carrying out initiatives which aim to develop more efficient pattern designs that avoid wasting materials, and to minimize the generation of waste during production. We’re also making proactive efforts to use recycled fibers.
We have launched the Mizuno Two Loops 8*1 series, a line of training apparel that uses over 50% recycled fibers while making use of cutting processes that waste as little material as possible.
This series delivers the functions essential in sports apparel, such as sweat-absorption and fast-drying performance, together with a reduced environmental footprint.
*1: “Mizuno Two Loops 8” is an apparel series which aims to have a reduced environmental footprint, with the aim of making a sustainable society.
We are also making every effort to reduce water consumption in dyeing processes during manufacturing.
Mizuno is working hard on environmental conservation activities through its business.
We believe that steadily amassing activities like these will create change in the world, ensuring that we can leave future generations an environment in which sports can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere and by anyone.
