Organic cotton is cultivated from plants that are not genetically modified and are grown without the use of synthetic agricultural processess such as chemicals, fertilizers, defoliants, or pesticides. Organic clothing production adheres to strict farming standards and sustainable manufacturing criteria from seed to shelf. Only 1% of all clothing manufactured is certified organic, despite its eco-friendly production; 80% of land under organic cotton is rain-fed and uses 62% less energy to grow. Choosing organic garments over conventional cotton clothing promotes environmental responsibility + sustainable living.
The Truth About Hemp
Hemp is a renewable resource that grows quickly without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. It’s often considered an environmental super fiber. Its high fiber yield produces 250% more fiber than cotton. The hemp plant absorbs and eliminates toxins from the soil and the environment. Hemp products can be recycled, reused and are 100% biodegradable. As a fabric it has a classic, linen look that is soft, breathable + durable.
Modal fabric is a luxurious, soft, naturally biodegradable, semi-synthetic, fabric that is derived from sustainably harvested beech trees. The raw material is turned into a lightweight, breathable, stretchy, yet durable option for clothing. This eco-conscious process is extremely energy efficient, minimizing environmental impact. It is carbon-neutral, which requires less land per ton than cotton fibers and has a water consumption level that’s ten to twenty times less than that of cotton.
RPET (recycled polyethylene terephlalate)is recycled, single-use plastic. Plastic takes hundreds of years to break down and cannot be biologically degraded. RPET is used to produce sustainable fabric. Choosing RPET clothing reduces waste entering landfills and oceans and greatly decreases global resource extraction. RPET uses 75% less energy than creating brand new products+ increases the demand for recycling programs.
Upcycled Deadstock Textile
Deadstock Fabric is surplus fabric from textile mills and garment factories that is unused or discarded, but can be repurposed to make new clothing. Globally, only 20% of textiles are actually reused or repurposed. On average, the fashion industry in The U.S.A. sends 11million tons of textiles to landfills. There use of deadstock fabric is a sustainable-savvy option, offsetting negative global ramifications of fast-fashion + textile waste.
