SUSTAINABILITY

We aspire to be different

Feel the difference with our Bamboo & Organic Cotton Activewear. Not only will you look good, but you'll also feel good.

Our Sustainability Goals

Our goals are simple. We want to eliminate waste, conserve energy and water, avoid chemicals, and WEAR ORGANIC as much as we can.

We source raw materials that are natural, healthier for you and better for the environment. Most of these raw materials are made from natural fibers, which break down better and are less of a pollutant than the synthetic fibers that are being found in our oceans and water supplies. 

Sustainability

Responsible sourcing: We're so soft, you won't even feel like you're wearing anything at all! Why? Because our activewear uses mostly natural, organic materials such as bamboo that are sourced responsibly. We check factors such as the impact our products have on people and the environment, availability, preferred fiber content, water and energy input, and emissions.

Clean & green: Our environmental efforts include working with production partners that adhere to strict environmental regulations and make use of renewable energy, repurposing by-products and recycling and conserving water. As our company grows, so too will these efforts.

Care for people: We are passionate about working with companies that share our values, so we choose to partner with manufacturers who pay their workers fair and equitable wages, ensure safe working conditions and practice diversity, equity and inclusion in their own workplaces. We also work hard to be a place where people of all backgrounds, perspectives and experiences feel like they belong.

Connect with the planet: Each and every one of our products is sewn, knitted, or woven with the utmost care. We're meticulous about the fabric and supplier choices, as well as factors such as environmental regulations, renewable energy, repurposed byproducts, ways to use less or recycled water, and greenhouse gas emissions. All of these are done in consideration of our headquarters and distribution practices and the packaging and shipping materials we use.

Our Sustainability Initiatives

BCI Certified Organic Cotton

Sustainable Farming Practices: sourced from organically grown and certified manufacturers

✓ GMO Free: No genetically modified organism (GMO), pesticides or insecticides

Water Conservation: Organic Cotton uses less water (500 liters to make a t-shirt) and it doesn't cause soil erosion or rural impoverishment because it prohibits the use of synthetic fertilisers, pesticides and GMOs.

Non toxic dyes: Because farming of Organic Cotton is pesticide-free it has a much more even colour, meaning there aren’t any blemishes or inconsistencies in the fabric – and this means that all our organic cotton clothes are printed on using eco-friendly water-based inks.

✓ Lower carbon footprint: Organic cotton uses organic farming practices, which means there are fewer mechanised farming practices. The soil acts as a ‘carbon sink’, absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere.

✓ Promotes sustainable supply chain: Organic farming reduces water usage by 91% and energy usage by 62%, increasing biodiversity and the health and safety of farming communities, and encourages people to seek alternative forms of safe and sustainable employment.

Bamboo

One of the most renewable natural resource in the world: A bamboo shoot can grow to 91cm in 24 hours; it might reach your knee even as you watch. Bamboo’s rapid growth rate offers the potential for significant carbon sequestration.

Naturally grown: To cultivate bamboo for textiles, little irrigation or fertilisers are needed. Bamboo can also be grown without pesticides or fertiliser, and as a result, it is an excellent crop for fabric.

Flame resistant: As it is rich in silicate acid, bamboo fabric is super flame-resistant!

Versatility: Bamboo is used to make a wide range of things. A giant grass native to Asia, bamboo is one of the strongest natural building materials in the world.
