SUSTAINABILITY

100% RECYCLED FABRIC 
***
 
Our 100% recycled fabric comes from factory cotton waste. It is collected, sorted, shredded and blended with recycled polyester (that comes from post consumer recycled plastic bottles) to a new yarn, the yarn is then used to knit our fleece and jersey. The fabric has organic cotton texture.

GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON 
***
  

The production process for conventional cotton uses a massive 16% of the world’s insecticides; more than any other crop in the world.

Organic farming practices avoid using harmful chemicals while aiming for environmental sustainability and the use of less resources. The land stays fertile much longer than land which is affected by the constant use of pesticides, so organic cotton farmers generally have a longer cotton commodity lifespan than otherwise.

On the social front, organisations, such as the Global Organic Textile Standard, have been working to make sure organic textiles also protect worker rights and enviroments.

GOTS covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of textiles, ensuring that both environmental and social standards, such as safe and hygienic working conditions, no workplace discrimination and fair pay rates, are respected.

Our organic cotton supplier provides these certifications for the fabric:
