In evaluating our suppliers, sustainability has the same weight as the main evaluation criteria (Quality, Service and Cost). Fashion has always been loved because it is synonymous with creativity and self expression. At the same time, it is estimated that the textile industry uses energy equivalent to the consumption of 132 million tons of coal each year and more than 6000 billion liters of water. (Rupp, Jurg, “Ecology and Economy in Textile Finishing”, Textile World). Our commitment in this sense is to combine a strong creative drive with the reduction of associated impacts. Innovation towards sustainability allows us to adopt new solutions today, without these being problems tomorrow and stimulating us to develop ever better products through the search for virtuous materials and production processes.
We want sustainability to be a characterizing element of all our products and not limited to a capsule collection. This is why we work to identify solutions that can be applied to all our products and contribute substantially to our constant improvement. Today, every company finds itself in the middle of a challenge: on the one hand the continuous increase in the demand for resources from industrial systems, on the other the decline in the availability of natural resources and the ability of the earth to regenerate. To overcome the challenge, we are guided by scientific principles of sustainability that also represent a strong drive towards innovation.
“Modernity has failed. We need to build a new humanism otherwise the planet is not saved. ”

In a Sustainable Society
All our products are subjected to chemical-physical tests, in order to be sure that they respect the limits we have defined on the use of potentially dangerous substances. These limits are more restrictive than the provisions of international law and are voluntarily adopted by Fastbpack.
The FOUR things we can no longer afford to do..
We can not extract substances from the earth’s crust faster than nature takes to reabsorb them in its cycles (eg heavy metals, fossil fuels …)
We can not produce substances and products faster than nature takes to reabsorb them in their cycles (eg pesticides, detergents …)
We can not physically destroy ecosystems faster than they use to regenerate (eg deforestation, overbuilding …).
We can not physically destroy ecosystems faster than they use to regenerate (eg deforestation, We can not act so that other people are not able to meet their basic human needs, but we must ensure for everyone: Health, Participation, Development of skills, impartiality, empowerment of the individual. reduction …)….
