    Why We Love It

    Simple Supply Chain: Simplicity is key when it comes to sustainability. Fewer steps, fewer manufacturers and fewer ingredients can often mean fewer emissions and less pollution. What it always means is that when a business says their products are sustainable, it's a lot easier to verify. That's why we love simple supply chains!

    Organic cotton: Organic cotton has some major benefits over the regular stuff, especially when it comes to pesticides water, and carbon emissions. Organic cotton farmers use only organic-approved fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides from plants, animals and minerals, unlike the traditional stuff, which often relies on petroleum-based fertilizers, synthetic chemicals, and pesticides. These chemicals aren’t just toxic, they often get into waterways, polluting the area around them. Speaking of water, over 80% of the land used for organic cotton is rainfed. That’s a lot more effective than many conventional cotton fields which require more water due to ineffective irrigation systems. Lastly, you’ve got emissions, organic farming methods can also sequester more carbon in the soil, through practices like crop rotation and reduced tillage. Studies suggest that organic cotton production reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 94% compared to conventional cotton.

    Fairtrade: Fairtrade goes beyond just a feel-good label. It guarantees farmers in developing countries a minimum price for their crops, often well above market value. It also ensures workers receive fair wages and work in safe conditions, with protection against child labor and discrimination. Finally, Fairtrade promotes environmentally sustainable practices by encouraging reduced use of harmful chemicals and promoting biodiversity. By choosing Fairtrade you're not just getting a quality product, you're contributing to a fairer and more sustainable world.

    Locally Sourced: We love local! By reducing transportation distances for raw materials and finished products, local sourcing helps minimize greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. This translates to cleaner air and a smaller carbon footprint. Local sourcing also fosters stronger connections within communities. It supports local businesses and farmers, injecting revenue back into the local economy, and creating more job opportunities.

    Organic Dyes: Organic dyes are paired with water-based binders, eliminating the use of harsh chemicals throughout the dyeing process. This eco-friendly approach ensures the safety of both the wearer and the environment, from initial production to the garment's eventual disposal.

    Azo Free Dyes: While widely used, azo dyes raise concerns due to their potential health risks. These synthetic dyes may contain carcinogenic heavy metals and can be absorbed through the skin, accumulating in the body. This poses a risk for both workers who produce azo-dyed goods and consumers who wear them. No Azo, No problem!

    Biodegradable: Traditional materials, like plastics, can take centuries to decompose in those landfills, leaching harmful chemicals and threatening wildlife. Biodegradable materials, are broken down naturally by microorganisms a much shorter timeframe, usually a few months or years – returning to harmless components like organic matter, water, and CO2.

    Impact

    Organic Cotton: At a production rate of over 25 million tons a year, cotton is the second most widely produced fabric in the world and it has a huge environmental impact, especially when it’s not organic. One reason is pesticides, non-organic cotton uses pesticides, like a lot. In fact, 4% of all world pesticides and 10% of insecticides are used in cotton-growing. It also uses a ton of water; we’re talking 1.5 swimming pools (3,644 cubic meters) per ton. But 80 per cent of the land used for organic cotton is rainfed, which is way more water efficient than most cotton irrigation systems. Lastly, you have emissions, organic cotton can produce ~94% less emissions that the non-organic kind. And at over 25 million tons each year, that makes a huge difference. Sadly, nearly 95 percent of that global cotton production is GMO and/or conventionally grown. But by supporting companies that work with organic cotton you can help change that!

    Biodegradable: The U.S. Generated 292.4 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MCW) in 2018. That’s nearly 5lbs per person per day! About half of that waste, nearly 150 million tons, ended up in a landfill. Traditional materials, like plastics, can take centuries to decompose in those landfills, leaching harmful chemicals and threatening wildlife. Biodegradable materials, are broken down naturally by microorganisms a much shorter timeframe, usually a few months or years – returning to harmless components like organic matter, water, and CO2. This significantly reduces waste volume in landfills, and often creates nutrients that can be reabsorbed by the environment, promoting healthy soil and plant growth.

    Globally, the textile industry is the 2nd largest cause of pollution after oil and gas. Enough textiles are discarded annually to fill a garbage truck every minute. Conventional clothing production guzzles water too, an estimated 2.7 trillion liters per year, which is enough to fill an Olympic swimming pool every single day. And it's responsible for around 10% of global carbon emissions, more than international flights and maritime shipping combined. A big reason for all this pollution is fast fashion. Clothing companies make tons (and tons) of cheap clothing to keep up with changing styles knowing they won't sell it all. But they don't care how much goes to waste as long as they make a profit. Don't fall into the trap! Beat the system by buying quality clothes made using sustainable practices, like these.
