Why We Wear Sustainable Tees And Tops

Sustainable tees and tops? We've got a section for that.

Sustainable tees and tops are our wardrobe staples, because we like the things we wear every day to be free from nasty chemicals, and because we like to minimise our environmental impact however we can.

For example: conventional cotton is considered the dirtiest crop in the world: it uses 2.4% of the world's cultivated land, but 6% of the world’s pesticides, and 16% of insecticides. Alternately, certified organic cotton is cultivated without these chemicals.

To be clear (because we're suckers for specificity), we define sustainable fabrics as: organic fabrics, recycled fabrics, and closed loop-certified fabrics, which are made using low-impact processes. 

This includes fabrics like certified organic cotton, recycled cotton, recycled nylon, and hemp. 

Of hemp, for example, Anny Duff, founder and designer of Good Studios, says: "Hemp has a huge role to play in the future of sustainable fashion. It is able to grow in almost any climate with very little water and no pesticides."

Which is to say sustainable tees and tops are better for us and better for the planet, and, importantly, they feel very nice.
