Eco Design - Decathlon


Eco-design consists of incorporating a product's environmental impact into its design from the very beginning, taking into account the product's entire life cycle. Incorporating environmental impact, means minimising the impact our products have on the environment, starting with their design. A product that is designed (or redesigned) within an environmentally-conscious framework is a product that performs the same functions while also providing environmental benefits.

This is how!

Dyeing textiles requires lots of water but also leads to lots of water waste generated in dyeing vats. To reduce this environmental impact, we choose solution dyeing, which integrates colour pigments when manufacturing the thread.


The Bi-ton is a technology that lets you dye one out of two threads. Dyeing has an environmental impact linked to water (consumption & pollution). There are dyes that are respectful of the environment.


By recycling [plastic bottles or part of recycled textiles] to produce our polyester, we are reducing the use of oil-based resources whilst preserving the fabric's breathability features when doing sport.
