Our eco credentials

eco friendly stamp

Isn't it great when you find products you like which are also kind to the planet?

We want to make sure the world is still a great place for our kids, grandkids and their grandkids to grow up in. So we're trying everything we can to do our bit.  As we grow we hope to incorporate other measures, but here's what we're up to for now.

 

Vegan approved

All of our base t-shirts and sweatshirts are 100% organic cotton, or an organic cotton and recycled polyester blend, and all are vegan approved.

So why use organic cotton?

Growing conventional cotton uses roughly 16% of the world's insecticides (by sales) and 5.7% of pesticides (by value)*.  However, no toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton, which makes it safer for anyone who harvests it and less damaging to the soil.

Plus, organically grown cotton requires up to 91% less water to produce (from farm to bale)** and emits 46% less greenhouse gas than non-organic cotton***.  And it feels great against your skin - It's a win, win!
