Durability of the components
Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that the fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in laboratories. Colour retention test: the colour fastness is verified to ensure that the colours do not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Ageing test: repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its entire life cycle and using different indicators. A general score from A to E is provided to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to displaying this environmental information.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
- To offer you soft and comfortable products in practice, we use organic cotton. It is grown without chemical fertilisers, pesticides or GMO, reducing the risk of ground or water pollution.
- By recycling plastic bottles to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petrol-based resources while keeping the material's breathability in practice.
