We have chosen to work sustainably using only 100% organic cotton.
Organic cotton comes from seeds that have not been genetically modified (non-GMO) and is grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilisers. Organic cotton farming uses natural methods, such as crop rotation, which benefit not only the soil, fauna and the environment, but create biodiversity and promote good health and quality of life for farmers and their communities.
Cultivating organic cotton ensures that no chemical insecticides, fertilisers or pesticides flow into the soil or into adjoining rivers, lakes or seas. This also means that the water used for organic farming is not considered s lost water, as it can be reused again and can return to the soil and other water sources without causing any harm.
WE RECYCLE TO REDUCE WASTE
We use recycled polyester to add stability to our sweatshirts, strength to our accessories and sustainable aspects to our jackets.
Studies show that recycling polyester allows for considerable energy savings in the manufacturing process (33-53%), and it is undeniable that tackling plastic waste has become one of the major environmental challenges of this decade. Globally, about 450 million metric tons of plastic are produced every year and 9.5 million tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean annually, most of it single-use.
