Other Sustainability Notes
PolyCore was created to be a sustainable option to the climate killer in the backpacks which is solvent-based PU (Fossil Fuel) coatings. Solvent-based coatings have been used for decades to increase abrasion resistance on fabrics. The use of these coatings releases volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere which is depleting our ozone layer letting in harmful ultraviolet rays. The compounds, then, accelerated the process of global warming by aiding greenhouse effects. Our mission at PolyCore is to replace the use of solvent-based coatings that suffocate our planet and replace them with sustainable, water-based options. Investing in the adaptation of different areas of the market to combat climate change is just one way to avoid climate and economic catastrophe. Investing today in the future of our planet is essential. If everyone chose to buy backpacks and/or bags with eco-friendly coating, this would force manufacturers to use eco-friendly coatings which would create a huge impact on the environment and on our world.
