Sustainability & Responsibility

DerDieDas and BLUESIGN

We from DerDieDas would like to reduce the ecological footprint of our products. As bluesign® SYSTEM PARTNER we are involved in reducing the strain on the environment during the whole production process.

BLUESIGN: sustainability from the outset

The objective of bluesign® SYSTEMS is creating a safe and environmentally-friendly produced textile consumer product. The approach to achieve this is the conscious and responsible use of ressources while at the same time applying the least possible strain on water and air, supervision of emissions and applying safe procedures for employees. Powered by this holistic approach, BLUESIGN enables an environmental-friendly and sustainable textile production all over the world.

Environmentally-friendly production process

The principle of the bluesign® SYSTEMS is: reducing the environmental burden during the whole production process by supervising all substances used during production and all raw materials before production can begin. Therefore all suppliers, manufacturers and brands have to undergo strict assessments.

DerDieDas is bluesign® SYSTEM PARTNER

We are aware of our responsibility as a manufacturer of products for children. As bluesign® SYSTEM PARTNER we are involved in the protection of humans and environment – and in the most ecological and sustainable use of ressources possible. Whether looking at our own production sites or our supplying partners.
