At Aurora Athletica, we understand the importance of looking after our environment and have made conscious decisions to reduce the environmental impact of our sweat towels.
100% Organic Cotton
All our towels are made using 100% organic cotton. Using organic cotton has substantial environmental benefits as no toxic chemicals are used in the growing and harvesting of the cotton, theses include pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms. These toxins are not only bad for the soil and surrounding water systems but they can also be harmful to humans. Growing of organic cotton also requires substantially less energy and water.
Organic Cotton Processing
All our towels are manufactured to strict organic cotton processing standards. These standards ensure that no unnecessary harmful chemicals and dyes are used during manufacturing that do not comply with global organic textile standards. Additionally, the standards also cover the minimisation and correct disposal of waste as a by product of production.
Washing and drying accounts for two thirds of the environmental impact of a product. Polygiene treated textiles, such as our towels do not need to be washed as often, which saves water, energy, time and money as well as improves the lifespan of the towels. As a result you can use your sweat towel more, wash less and be climate smart!
