In safe and sustainable manufacturing the brand has already introduced a handful of products containing recycled polyester, LACAUSA primarily focuses on natural and organic fabrics as they have since day one. All polyester releases micro plastics into the environment, but by using recycled and/or dead stock poly, they are giving a new life to waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Using recycled poly also drastically reduces energy consumption in its production. None of these solutions are perfect yet, but we made the choices we felt were best based on energy and resource consumption
