World Environment Day

 World Environment Day!


We are all aware how climate change is impacting the planet.


World Environment Day is led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and held annually on 5 June since 1973. It represents the largest global platform for environmental public outreach and is celebrated by millions of people across the world. This year it is hosted by Sweden.


At EVB Sport and Core we are conscious of the impact the textile industry has on the environment. We are an Irish company trying to make sustainable ways of business the default option.


What we are doing to make a difference?


Our EVB products address the challenges of Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and are the sustainable choice as they continue to provide the support for over 40 washes unlike disposable pads which are environmentally unfriendly.


While we know that EVB support garments are an essential piece of engineered clothing adopted by women around the world, we only make products to a monthly order schedule and therefore we are not creating waste materials. 


Our products are designed using innovative environmentally friendly materials. For example, our new underwear range is made from 100% natural bamboo.

Did you know that bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and uses 10% the amount of land as cotton to produce the same yield? That’s one of the many reasons we think it’s a great fibre to use in our clothing solutions. Bamboo is temperature controlling and moisture wicking too, so perfect for warmer days.  Unlike our EVB range, the underwear is not a medically certified product.


We are now endeavouring to seek out new materials for all our EVB range in order to drive further sustainability.  


Another recent initiative has seen us replace our plastic packing slips with biodegradable packing – this will save on thousands of pieces of plastic annually.


Biodegradable packing slips reduce water usage, solid waste, save on electricity and reduce emissions.


Do you operate in the textile industry?  If so do you have any thoughts and experiences about how the Industry can improve sustainability.
