What does it mean to “go green”?
It means sourcing better options in all aspects of our business practices and here’s how we do that!
Our clothing is made from fibres that are lower impact or 100% certified organic. We are constantly learning and developing new blends to best serve the environment. If it is not necessary to bleach or dye a garment or trim, we will favor not doing so. If we can use an organic or eco trim, we will. Case in point – our label is made of organic cotton with vegetable printing. While it may unravel a bit over time and washes, we believe it is the best option for the earth. Its just a label…while we could go with a polyester heat sealed label that will last forever, its impact is too high for our standards.
All of our textiles are eco and/or 100% certified organic yarns. Our bamboo and cotton are 100% organic and certified by the worlds organic trade association. The bamboo used to make our clothing industry is “Moso” bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens). This is not the same bamboo that panda’s eat and there is no threat to their environment by harvesting this bamboo. The bamboo is planted specifically for this purpose. Bamboo grows to full maturity in as little as 36 months. It does not require any fertilizers to grow and no pesticides as it has a natural tolerance to insects.
No production of textiles is without some negative impact on the environment, however we use the best practices possible and by purchasing our products, you assist us in leaving a smaller footprint! Over time, more and better manufacturing processes will exist. The more people choose to buy organic over regular, heavily polluting clothing, the more business and research and development will go into manufacturing of these textiles. With demand from you, the customer comes change at the other end. We believe in “echoing” out there from on end of the chain and back again.
