SUSTAINABILITY BEHIND
BOBO CHOSES

LET’S PUT A SMILE
ON EARTH’S FACE

At Bobo Choses, we have always been responsible for our social and environmental footprint. We strive to create friendly products for our environment and continuously improve our production processes’ sustainability. 

Here are some facts, which improve year after year.

01

FIBRES AND MATERIALS

We strive to replace conventional materials with more sustainable ones that have a lower impact on both nature and human health.

We use GOTS-certified organic cotton as the primary fiber in our collections. We are increasingly incorporating more sustainable fibers such as linen, cupro, recycled polyester, and LENZING™ Lyocell.

CLOTHING

• The cotton yarn is organic *GOTS certified. The cotton was grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or any other chemical fertilizer. Its sustainable production system also helps to replenish and maintain soil health. 

• 92% of the cotton used in our SS21 baby collection is GOTS certified organic cotton, 88% for Kid.

• This collection has more recycled fibers such as recycled polyester, recycled polyamide, and pre-consumed cotton.

• All Denim garments are made with a mix of cotton and recycled cotton.

• Swimwear is made of recycled technical fabrics, such as Polyamide from Q-nova and Infinyl, and it has Ultraviolet Protection Factor 50+ protection.

• Outerwear garments have water-repellent treatment by BIONIC FINISH ECO, an ecological water-repellent impregnation.

ACCESSORIES

• Bottles are made in Spain, are free of BPA, and do not retain or transmit flavors.

• Plates and glasses are made of bamboo, cornstarch, and resin. Biodegradable and reusable.

• All of our Polybags have d2w® biodegradable plastic additives. It accelerates the natural process of oxidation until the product is no longer plastic but a material that can be bio-assimilated (i.e., used as a food source) by bacteria and fungi on land or sea. Best of all, if it escapes collection and ends up as litter in the environment, it will degrade and biodegrade in a continuous, irreversible, and unstoppable process until there is nothing left, in the same way as nature’s waste.

For that reason, the production and finishing factories we work with are OEKO-TEX certified. Plus, all of our suppliers need to comply with our Code of Conduct, which helps us share our mutual responsibility for fair labor and a safe working environment.

RE-USE, RE-CYCLE, RE-DUCE

Working with MADE-BY and ANTHESIS organizations helps us with action plans to address carbon, water, and waste reduction. In five years, we have reduced our carbon footprint by 7.4% and our water consumption by 30%.

We make an accurate forecast when we buy fabrics to avoid overstock. All the scraps generated at the production stage are donated to a local foundation called CEO El Maresme for recycling and re-use. At the moment, we are working on a dedicated project to expand the lifecycle of our overstock materials with the Waste Agency of Catalonia and Hallotex-The Loop. We hope to share more information soon.

• We’ve reduced our water consumption by 30%.

• We’ve reduced our carbon footprint by 7.4%.

• All the scraps are donated for re-use.

RESPONSABLE PACKAGING

Our shipping bags are environmentally friendly because they are made of resistant kraft paper that is 100% recyclable and biodegradable and have the international Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

A double closing system makes your returns much responsible and effortless. Their smaller size compared to other traditional packaging options helps reduce their environmental footprint: less transport volume, fewer costs, less fuel consumption, no seal, or fillings. No waste!

Plus, it’s a great blank canvas to let kids’ creativity fly!

• 100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging.

• PEFC certified.
