Apparel with an Impact - Planet First Materials
Be Good To The Planet
The fashion and textile industries are one of the largest culprits of pollution in the world.
Traditional clothing produces not only a large amount of excessive material waste, but over half of clothing produced ends up in a landfill within a year. The production of standard cotton shirts creates a horrific amount of pesticides and toxins, and also requires oceans of water to produce.
Materials We Use
Not only does our organic cotton shirts feel softer than standard cotton, but they have less impact on the environment. No toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton and it has significantly less water and energy needs. These shirts also lack the toxic dyes and treatments of your standard cotton shirt.
Sustainable, ultra-soft, eco-friendly; bamboo has it all. Requiring 1/3 of the water needed of standard cotton, this naturally self replenishing resource is also biodegradable. The benefits of our bamboo tees are that they are literally the softest option available, antibacterial, and moisture wicking.
Naturally sustainable, biodegradable, and less impactful to produce. Wool that is harvested from livestock has been around for generations in the textile industry. Durable,
breathable. moisture wicking, and great at temperature regulating, it's a good alternate to lighter fabrics.
One of the newest sustainable fabrics available is Hemp. This fabric uses less water than traditional cotton to produce and does not require any harmful pesticides to produce. Our hemp fabric feels ultra-soft and provides a high-end look and feel compared regular tees.
Recycled Cotton/Poly Blend
Using a unique process that eliminates 6 plastic bottles per piece of apparel made, our recycled poly blend is the ultimate in eco-friendly material. It's as simple as “Process, Spin, Create”. We source plastic bottles from landfills, PROCESS them into a unique resin, SPIN it with a combination of poly/cotton, and CREATE an ultra soft fabric that is also the standard in eco-friendly apparel. The best part, our recycled cotton/poly blend is one of our most popular due to the ultra-soft feel and flexibility.
We're on a mission to disrupt the standards in apparel manufacturing and prove that there's a better way.
We love hearing from our customers how impressed they are with the softness of the fabric, which feels like a traditional tri-blend fabric. We are dedicated to always being at the forefront of using sustainable materials and creating unique products with them that never compromise on style.
