ECO-DESIGN AT DECATHLON
Eco-design integrates the environmental impact of a product from the initial design concept, taking into consideration the whole lifecycle of the product.
Integrating environmental impact means producing goods with minimized environmental impact starting from the design process.
A product that is designed (or redesigned) with this approach fulfills the same qualities of use while providing benefits to the environment.
Extraction and processing
From where is it made to where it is sold

THE PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE
Click & Collect
With our 2 hour Click & Collect Concept, we are able to deliver 50 parcels in one truck instead of making multiple trips with multiple transport vehicles.
By doing so, we effectively reduce our carbon footprint whilst ensuring maximum delivery efficiency. Our parcels are also delivered in reusable bags to avoid plastic waste!
Eco-Friendly Blue Bags
By July 2020, all our blue bags in stores will be made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles (or PET bottles). This will reduce 35% of our CO2 emissions as compared to our previous reusable blue bags.
- After heating, the plastic material is extruded into recycled polyester yarn and weaved into fabric.
- The fabric is dyed our signature blue, and undergoes finishing and inspection.
- It is then sewed to form bags ready for your use!
- Bottle waste from PET bottles are shredded into flakes and melted at a high temperature.
We use 10,000 hangers alone on the daily.
In 2020, we are ensuring that 100% of these hangers are either recycled across all stores, or reused by shipping excess back to our warehouses.
