The clothing manufacturing industry accounts for 8-10% of greenhouse gas emissions.
We're dedicated to limiting the environmental impact of our actions by seeking greener sourcing chains for the raw materials that we use in the garments and using non-plastic, bio-degradable shipping materials and efficient *return shipping methods.
Our pants are locally made in small runs with USA-milled **Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS) certified Organic Cotton fabrics treated with low impact, non-toxic dyes and inks and are ***OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified.
We believe that small choices add up, that many are mighty. For example, our buttons are made from either recycled paper and recycled plastic combo or Corozo, made from the nut of the palm fruit. A button is a tiny detail, but we help grow demand for eco-friendly buttons instead of buttons commonly made from petroleum-based material by making this choice. Increasing demand for more eco-friendly raw materials is a surefire way to help any industry adapt to climate change challenges.
*We partnered with Happy Returns, a returns shipping service that provides the option of box-free returns at on-site drop-off locations, using reusable packaging for items that are efficiently aggregated and shipped in bulk to their shipping zone hubs cutting down on carbon emissions.
**GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
***STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances.
