A huge amount of CO2 emissions are released daily

Which is why we use Carbon Capture technology in our products

It allows us to take back those emmissions from the air

and use it to manufacture our products


In 2020 we joined forces with Carbon Upcycling Technologies and their consumer facing brand Oco to start work on combining captured CO2 emissions with recycled plastic.


Our exclusive partnership with Oco has enabled each new GROUNDTRUTH product to be a carbon sink that demonstrates the direct utilisation of CO2 emissions into end products.

Better Performance

By adding captured CO2 to recycled Polypropylene, we have increased the mechanical performance of our new range of hardware by up to 40% compared to virgin plastic. Starting with a zip puller we are now expanding our unique formula into a whole range of bespoke GROUNDTRUTH hardware - such as buckles, D-rings and many more.

Recycled Plastic

Microplastics have now been found in all ecosystems around the world and have recently been detected in our blood. Plastic production is set to increase in the years to come but only a small percentage will ever be recycled. Together with our textile partners, PolyCore, we have elevated our existing 100% rPET GT-RK-001 textile to incorporate Polycore’s advanced Eco-X water-based coating.

The GT-RK-PC-002™ uses the same construction as our GT-RK-001 textile; a 600 denier ballistic yarn structure combined with our triangular ripstop weave for premium strength. PolyCore’s water-based PU coating, which as a coating provides both environmental and human health benefits through the elimination of the use of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). VOCs is a general term for highly reactive chemicals that are released by solvents and other products. VOCs contribute to smog, pollution of streams, rivers, and eventually the ocean. All our materials are 100% vegan.

“As a sustainable textile technology company, working with GROUNDTRUTH has been a breath of fresh air. They have prioritized the health of the environment through every step of this process and are setting a new environmental standard in the backpack industry.”
