USED PLASTIC BOTTLES
USING WASTE AS A RESOURCE
We utilize recycled plastic bottles and textile waste, using 100% waste and zero virgin materials in our manufacturing process. This way, we ensure that our products not only look and feel good, but also contribute to a more sustainable future.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY TODAY
The materials and dyes used in clothing production have significant environmental impacts. Synthetic fibers like polyester release large amounts of carbon emissions, while cotton farming requires large amounts of water, pesticides, and fertilizers, leading to soil degradation and water pollution. Dyes contain toxic chemicals that harm workers and pollute waterways, with wastewater from the dyeing process often discharged into rivers and streams.
IMPACT OF GROWING COTTON
The WWF estimates that it takes 2,700 liters of water to produce one cotton t-shirt, which is equivalent to the amount of water one person drinks in 2.5 years.
According to the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, cotton accounts for 24% of global insecticide use and 11% of global pesticide use.
According to the WWF, the production of 1 kilogram of cotton can emit up to 10 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e).
IMPACT OF PRODUCING POLYESTER
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation estimates that the production of polyester generates approximately 700 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
It takes approximately 70 MJ of energy to produce one kilogram of polyester, which is equivalent to the energy needed to power a 60-watt light bulb for 35 hours.
IMPACT OF USING TEXTILE DYES
Textile dyeing and finishing processes account for up to 20% of global industrial water pollution.
The use of toxic chemicals in textile dyeing, such as heavy metals and carcinogens, can harm the health of workers and pollute waterways.
According to the WHO, textile dyeing and finishing processes are responsible for the release of approximately 7,000 chemicals into the environment.
WHAT MAKES US SUSTAINABLE
RECYCLED TEXTILE WASTE
Our process involves recycling textile scraps, cuttings, and other post-consumer cotton waste materials that would otherwise be discarded. By using recycled textile waste as a resource, we reduce the amount of waste in landfills and conserve valuable natural resources such as water, energy, and land.
RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES
Recycled polyester is made from recycled used plastic bottles, diverting waste from landfills and oceans where it can take hundreds of years to decompose. Recycling polyester reduces the amount of waste in landfills, conserves precious natural resources, and reduces carbon emissions.
NO DYES USED
We derive the color of our products from the cotton waste we source. Using no dyes in our production reduces the amount of chemicals and pollutants released into the air and water sources. Additionally, using no dyes can reduce water usage in the manufacturing process, as dyeing fabrics requires a significant amount of water.
CIRCULARITY FROM THE START
Our products are made from 100% recycled waste through a process which is sustainable, saves large amounts of water, and keeps waste out of landfills.
