Our Sustainable, Organic, & Recycled Fabrics

We are further pursuing our mission through the sale of products that are made with sustainable, organic, and recycled materials. All of our products meet this criteria and are made using sustainable resources and ethical manufacturing processes. In addition, we strive to source our products and materials from manufacturers located in the United States. This allows us to decrease our environmental footprint and helps to boost/benefit a more local economy. We are trying to "Make America Great Again", right? 


You can learn more about our awesome eco-friendly materials and fabrics in the info below. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions, comments, praise, and/or concerns.

Organic Cotton

Traditional cotton farming accounts for over 10% of total pesticide use and nearly 25% of insecticide use worldwide! Which results in creating concerns for drinking water supplies, wildlife, and the environment. While organic farming of natural cotton fiber is more expensive compared to traditional farming, it saves pesticide and herbicide use, soil and water degradation, and also wildlife.  Organic production systems on the other hand, replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. 

Third-party certification organizations verify that organic cotton farmers/producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. This means that no toxic/harmful pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and no genetically engineered seeds are part of the farming or harvesting process. 

Our line of organic cotton apparel is certified by an organization called the Global Organic Textile Standard (G.O.T.S.). More info about G.O.T.S. can be found at: www.global-standard.org

Recycled Polyester

Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) is made from recycled polyesters, recycled plastics and pure, 100% organic cotton. When making our RPET clothing 90% less water is used and we help take some of the millions of bottles out of the waste stream by using recycled plastics. 

Recycled polyester commonly comes from post-consumer plastic (PET) water and soda bottles, but it can also come from pre-consumer waste. Recycled polyester is a better alternative because it relies on a recycled material, which means you don’t have to factor in all the toxins and energy used in manufacturing the plastic in the first place. So less energy, aka Greenhouse Gas emissions and water, are required to manufacturing compared to virgin materials.

Hemp

Hemp is an exceptionally strong, durable, eco-friendly fiber. Hemp is grown organically and doesn’t require insecticides or pesticides. This fabric has the feel of flannel and typically softens with age. Our hemp apparel line includes 60% hemp and 40% organic cotton for a silky soft feel. 

Because growing hemp is illegal in the US, our hemp comes from industrial hemp plants grown in China. And while technically not certified organic, it’s grown as organically as possible. Thanks to its natural heartiness, hemp doesn’t require any chemical pesticides or fertilizers, which makes it’s safer for the farmers that grow it as well as the land it’s grown on. In fact, this drought resistant plant does wonders for the soil it’s grown in. Farmers who grow hemp are able to plant food crops in the same field immediately after harvest—something not possible with a lot of other crops.

Once hemp is processed into fabric, it resembles linen in a lot of ways. It’s lightweight and remarkably breathable. It washes well, and because we blend ours with other materials like organic cotton, recycled polyester, and spandex, it doesn’t wrinkle as much as linen does.

Bamboo

Light, strong, soft to the touch, and requires less dye compared to cotton. Bamboo fabric absorbs moisture away from your skin, keeping you drier. Bamboo is one of the fastest renewable resources, growing incredibly quickly, and using about 1/3 less water than cotton to grow! Those quick facts make it easy to see why Bamboo is one of Earth's most sustainable natural resources. Bamboo fabric also has insulating properties and will keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

The viscose bamboo plant grows faster than any other plant, making it the most renewable. Some species of viscose bamboo can grow up to two feet per day and many species grow even faster than that! The viscose bamboo fabric absorbs moisture really well and because of that, requires less dye than conventional cotton which uses more harmful chemicals that negatively affect our environment.

Eco-Triblend

Our Eco-Triblend fabric/apparel is stylish, comfortable, and American Made! In addition to that trio, all Eco-Triblend fabrics consist of a trio of 100% certified Organic Cotton combined with Recycled Polyester and Rayon. Rayon Fabric is an extremely soft but durable material, with better absorbency than cotton. Though it’s made using chemical processes, all the manufacturing components are natural. Rayon Fabric is actually biodegradable and, therefore, more eco-friendly than many other textiles. Rayon is crafted from wood pulp in the form of purified cellulose fiber. The pulp is converted to a soluble compound, which is then dissolved and inserted into a spinneret to form the new refined fibers. With its outstanding durability, absorbency and softness, Rayon is a perfect third component of eco-triblend fabric.
