Organic cotton looks like a little bit of cotton wool bursting from a dry flower. The petals and seeds need to be removed before it can be spun. Harvested organic cotton is taken to ginning plants by camel or by truck. From there the raw material is separated out into the useful fibres which are sent to be spun. The waste seeds are pressed into cakes which is sold for organic cow feed. Vegetable oil is squeezed out last for use in food products. Every part of the plant is used.
Cotton farmers get a price for their cotton which is guaranteed by the regional government. Great quality batches get higher prices as ginners compete for the best stuff.
- Energy in
- Cow food out
Throughout our supply chain renewable energy is used. In the UK we own a solar farm and power manufacturing operations with renewables. In India, the factory owns two wind farms and a 150kw PV array. Renewable energy is affordable, reliable and something we are committed to investing in.
Within our factory machine-to-machine communications technology allows us to dynamically turn equipment on and off only when it is needed, balancing our manufacturing demand with on site generation.
Circular Tee Shirts – Whatever Next
We make new products from the material we recover, and the cycle itself is renewable. Our products can be returned and remade again and again and again. A pure material makes remanufacturing possible, and means products that are softer, and not harmful to the environment.
It’s free to send our products back to us, and we pay the postage in the UK. We’ll recover and remanufacture the material into a new product, and we’ll reward you with a coupon that you can use to save money on your next purchase.
