Organic cotton (Global Organic Textile Standard-certified) planted and harvested by hand in a region where cotton farming is predominantly rain-fed. (Cotton’s biggest environmental impact worldwide is water use. Rain-fed cotton reduces the impact on waterways).
Renewable energy powers the factory where our t-shirts are cut and sewn. (a combination of 30 massive wind turbines and solar panels on the roof of the factory).
Environmentally friendly inks are used to print our t-shirts. We use Permaset Aqua inks – the most environmentally friendly inks on the market, passing the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Class 1 test (an independent testing and certification system for textile products) with 60% to spare!
AREAS FOR DEVELOPMENT
All workers at the Earth Positive factory receive at least the legal minimum wage, however this is not considered a living wage by many. We would like to see our supplier Earth Positive continue their work exploring the complex topic of achieving a real living wage for garment workers.
