“A better t-shirt starts with better raw materials”

Our Tri-Blend “All-Made” shirt is a unique blend built from 50% Repreve® polyester from recycled plastic; 25% organic, US grown, combed, ring spun cotton; and 25% TENCEL™ Modal. These sustainable fibers combine to create a soft, flexible, and smooth fabric which offers a more comfortable and better fitting shirt made of environmentally responsible components. Each shirt uses approximately 6 recycled water bottles and all shirts are spun, cut and sewn in Haiti for a living wage.

Wait, there’s more?

In addition to the direct impact to the environment, most materials are sourced right here in the US, shipped to Haiti to be sewn into shirts, and shipped back to the US for sale.

A typical t-shirt will travel 16,000 miles: cotton grown in one country, shipped to another to be processed into fiber, and another to be spun into yarn, and another to be knitted into fabric, and so on. Most of this shipping is done using bunker fuel, a heavy oil residue so toxic most countries won’t let ships using it within 200 miles of shore.

Haiti, on the other hand, is a mere 500 miles from Miami and that’s as far as our fabric and shirts have to go – a significant reduction in shipping.
