Denny's is offering one of its ecological chef jackets to 10 lucky Buy It! readers. The jacket, worth £23.50 (plus VAT), is part of the Le Chef collection and is the first in a range of eco-friendly products.
The cotton used is treated using bio-preparation methods, which avoid the use of harsh chemicals. As large amounts of water are no longer needed to flush away these chemicals, each jacket saves up to 40 litres of water compared with traditional methods.
A lower level of carbon is produced in the manufacture of the jackets, as the whole manufacturing process - producing the yarn, weaving the fabric and making the garment - all take place within a five-mile radius, in Pakistan.
Rather than using buttons made from plastic, a product of oil, the jacket's fastenings are made from corozo, or tagua nuts. When dried, these nuts look similar to ivory, and are mostly sourced from palm trees in Ecuador. Corozo nuts are a more sustainable source than plastic or ivory as each female tree produces a yield of 20lb of nuts a year.
