At Bella Eco we searched the world for a truly sustainable answer to the environmental impact of the fashion industry and we found the most incredible solution.
"For a changing Fashion approach,
sustainable, ethical and innovative, choose a truly distinctive ingredient”
Amni Soul Eco® technology is part of a new generation of sustainable yarns manufactured using environmentally-friendly processes. In anaerobic landfills, its unique composition allows bacteria to gain access to and digest the waste materials, thus accelerating the biodegradation process.
Amni Soul Eco® is eliminated from the planet in about 5 years,
whilst other fibres take decades to decompose.
Like other biodegradable products, once it is in the landfill, Amni Soul Eco®, breaks down into organic matter (biomass) and biogas, both of these can then be exploited as new environmental resources as well as being used to cogenerate electricity.
Why Amni Soul Eco Makes Amazing Underwear!
Our manufacturers work in ethical environments where health and safety is of the utmost importance. Fair wages and working hours are also applied. Focusing on human resources as well as sustainability is at it's core.
Our technology is part of a new generation of sustainable yarns coming from a process that respects the environment. This care for the planet is present in the reuse of water used in its manufacturing process and in the reduction of greenhouse gases, which are treated prior to being released into the environment, thus preserving the ozone layer and nature.
OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 CLASS 1 CERTIFIED! To guarantee the absence of substances which could harm the health of adults, children and babies. Oeko-Tex is actually the independent control and certification system which certifies the safety of textile products for human use.
Unlike other environmentally friendly fibres, Amni Soul Eco is also designed with “performance” in mind and provides;
- Dyeing quality
- Easy care
- Biodegradability as determined by the standard test method ASTM D5511
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this product free of toxic substances?
Yes, definitely. Amni Soul Eco® is indeed Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class 1 certified, to guarantee the absence of substances which could harm the health of adults, children and babies. Oeko-Tex is actually the independent control and certification system which certifies the safety of textile products for human use.
When does Amni Soul Eco start to Biodegrade?
The biodegradation properties of Amni Soul Eco® become apparent only and exclusively under landfill conditions, where there is no oxygen and bacteria specifically in charge of anaerobic decomposition are found. Therefore, it does not decompose after standard use and this product’s lifecycle is the same as that of traditional polyamide yarns. This is really important for intimate apparel that is not recycled or handed on to op shops for re-sale and re-use. The durability of this yarn means it will outlast most other intimate apparel yarns that quickly loose their shape.
What is Amni Soul Eco®?
Amni Soul Eco® is the polyamide yarn with enhanced biodegradability.
As demonstrated by laboratory biodegradation tests in accordance with ASTM D5511*, Amni Soul Eco® biodegrades in around 5 years when disposed of in landfills, compared to more than 50 years for synthetics in general.
Amni Soul Eco® reduces the environmental impact and the amount of waste left to future generations.
