PULSAR® recently introduced their first ever sustainable garment, a polo shirt, incorporating 45% GRS recycled polyester made from post-consumer waste and 55% BCI cotton, finished in a premium pique knit. 

PULSAR® wanted to design a polo shirt that was not only made out of sustainable materials but also designed to last longer. The PULSAR® Life polo shirts, incorporate a DuPont Silvadur anti-bacterial treatment, reducing bad odours within the garment, this helps to reduce the need to wash the garment when not dirty. This has a number of benefits including extending the life even further whilst at the same time, reduces energy, water consumption and detergent usage – helping protect our environment.

We have pushed the life expectancy of the garment by using materials and components which can last up to 50 domestic washes, 10 times the requirement of the standard for a pass. This helps promote a longer life span of the garment, which in theory means there is a reduction in demand in garments being manufactured over the period of time, reducing pollution in production and shipping.

Alongside the sustainable elements of these polo shirts and the ability to protect our environment, the polo shirts also include safety features which help protect the wearers, such as an Ultraviolet Protection Factor rating of 40+, offering maximum protection against the dangers of harmful UV rays and the certification to the hi visibility standard, EN ISO:20471.

The PULSAR® Life polo shirts, incorporate GRS recycled polyester made from post-consumer waste and 55% BCI cotton. The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. All PULSAR® Life garments incorporate GRS accredited fabrics ensuring responsible sourcing and production throughout the PULSAR® Life collection. PULSAR® Life garments only use BCI Cotton (Better Cotton Initiative) in the garments which is the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world, ensuring a sustainable and better future for all. This again goes towards our SDG12.

We believe the PULSAR® Life polo shirts are the first in the market to use post-consumer textile waste rather than plastic bottles and where possible, we will always try to utilise textile waste to produce more textiles, in order to have that full circular system for products in our own industry. 

After the succesful launch of the polo shirts and the hard work that went into the design and development of the garments, we entered it into the PCIAW Awards and can happily announce we WON Best Design for Workwear and PPE!

Thank you to PCIAW, for hosting such a wonderful evening and we are super excited to attend next years awards to enter even more of our Sustainable Life Collection.
