Some of the world’s biggest and best airlines have suffered the consequences of hazardous substances in uniforms that have led to health problems for their employees as well as millions in financial losses
Chemical threats can happen discreetly in daily work when, for example, the textile industry uses toxic substances in the clothing production process. The human body gradually accumulates artificial toxins when using clothes with dangerous substances because our bodies can’t dissolve them.
According to Greenpeace in the catalog of Detox My Fashion, “The blood of people living in Europe today may contain around 300 dangerous chemicals. Our grandparents were not exposed to most of these substances”. Greenpeace created that manifesto to support textile industries replace hazardous chemicals used in fabric with safer alternatives.
How can hazardous substances affect our health?
Any clothing can contain hazardous substances if any harmful chemical agents were used in the dyeing or treatment process. These chemicals can cause cancer and fertility problems. These are substances such as:
- Aromatic Amines
- Organotin Compounds
- Heavy Metals
Therefore, for sustainability to become a practice in textile production, the company that produces uniforms must know how to use chemical substances correctly. On SKYPRO:
- we prioritize the use of non-toxic substances,
- we promote sustainable production and
- we avoid the use of heavy metals
These are some of the basic attitudes we must take to preserve workers’ health and the environment. At SKYPRO, our dedicated and passionate team uses various technologies that provide health uniforms to your team.
SKYPRO’s uniform technology takes care of the body
At SKYPRO, we constantly search for new fabrics, which are increasingly similar to old products in terms of appearance, texture, and durability, providing satisfactory and safe results in production. Furthermore, there is a continuous search for alternative materials and new fibers.
It is essential to ensure that uniforms meet the standard requirements which safeguard against hazardous substances and retain the Health & Safety regulations of the airline company. At SKYPRO, we make innovative products to care for and protect crews around the world. Only the highest quality and safest materials are used. Our uniforms are tested and assessed following the minimum specific technical requirements.
The ecological materials have been our quest to build new possibilities for uniforms. We can also reduce production costs with an ecological approach. The result is a healthier uniform for all employees: no future headaches, no allergies.
Textile fairs provide the chance to get to know and update on everything in the market and the solid trends for the future. That is the ideal setting for doing good business and research. We already talked about our participation in Textile fairs here.
