Introducing our unisex T-Shirt made from 100% recycled materials.
We are please to introduce our new branded unisex T Shirt. Currently this is available in one colour (Black Melange, which is best described as a very dark charcoal with texture) and 5 sizes. Our logo features on the left sleeve. This T Shirt is made from 100% recycled materials and carries the Salvage symbol which means it is a certified product under the Global recycle standard. Waste cuttings from organic cotton clothing are salvaged, shredded, mixed with added fibres from recycled plastic bottles which results in the cotton and polyester blend used in the T Shirt.
We wanted to find a T Shirt manufacturer who fitted our ethical and sustainable criteria, as we know that is increasingly important to our customers, so we were pleased to source our T Shirts from a company who matches our ethos.
They have adopted a robust policy with regard to social responsibility and sustainable manufacturing full details below for those of you who want all the details.
This T Shirt is the first in our collection and we will add additional colours and designs throughout the summer.

Sustainable manufacturing is the creation of manufactured products through economically sound processes that minimise negative environmental impacts whilst conserving energy and natural resources. The garment industry is one of the most environmental damaging industrial sectors on the plants - once this is acknowledged we can start to address the negative impacts through careful sourcing of raw materials to supporting high profile campaigns such as the Clean Cotton Campaign and the Pesticide Action Group. Reducing the carbon footprint in manufacture is an important part of sustainable manufacturing, as is using GOTS approved chemicals in the dying process and using low water and controlled discharge processes.
