Organic, Ethical, Climate Neutral Streetwear

Organic, Ethical, Climate Neutral Streetwear

Fashion accounts for around 10% of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. That's insane. It's been important to us from the beginning to not be part of the problem. Can there ever be a way to enjoy the culture we love without destroying the planet? 

Don't worry. Thanks to our clothing manufacturer - Continental Clothing Co we are able to provide sustainable streetwear to our global community. It was a priority for us to do things differently and take a responsible approach when choosing who to trust with our garment manufacture and we are in the safest hands in the game. Let's take a look into what this amazing company offers us and therefore you...

100% Organic Tees

Our T-shirts are produced exclusively from organic Indian cotton, and the entire production process is controlled and certified in accordance with the latest version of GOTS. All products are labelled as Organic.

Continental Clothing Company has been licensed under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) since 2007. For the past five years the Company has been the largest organic textile licensee of the Soil Association.

Organic farmers use natural methods to grow cotton, not fossil-fuel based fertilisers. By working with nature, farmers build healthy soils which store carbon and help to combat climate change. Organic cotton is better for water than conventionally produced cotton. Organic farming creates healthy soils, which act like a sponge, soaking up water during floods and holding it for longer in times of drought. Hazardous synthetic pesticides and fertilisers are banned in organic farming, so rivers, lakes and drinking water are kept cleaner too.

Verified Ethical Manufacture

Our T-shirts production undergoes annual audits to comply with the FWF Code of Labour Practices in accordance with the International Labour Organisation’s conventions.

Continental Clothing Co has been a member of Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) since 2006.

90% Reduced Carbon Footprint

Every one of our tees are made in manufacturing facilities powered by green renewable energy, from low-impact raw materials. The carbon footprint has been reduced by some 90% and the calculations were certified under the PAS2050 standard by the Carbon Trust in the UK between 2007-2009.

Our Factory

This vertically integrated garment factory in Tamil Nadu, Southern India, is the primary manufacturing facility of Continental Clothing. 

The state-of-the-art technology and ultra-modern infrastructure provide the setting for the textile industry's leading showcase of socially and environmentally responsible production.

So as you can see, we go above and beyond when it comes to our sustainability. So it only makes sense to use Continental for every tee we release. That way you can enjoy all the pleasures of picking up a fresh new garm, guilt free.
