At Green Tee Clothing Company, their aim is to be the premier producer of fashionable “green” tees. Thru this medium, they hope to promote an eco-conscious lifestyle and raise environmental awareness. They realize that, in simple terms, the best way to help out the environment would be to produce nothing at all. However, if they can minimize the negative effect of their production through the use of sustainable fabrics such as 100% organic cotton and bamboo, recycled material, and water-based inks - while teaming up with the Organic Cotton Exchange and 1% For The Planet- they believe that their message can have a REAL impact!
Green Tee Clothing’s organic cotton garments are produced with100% pure organically grown cotton. It is certified by the Control Union World Group, to the Organic Exchange 100 guidelines and the SKAL International standards for sustainable textile production, which verify conformity with organic regulations of Europe, Japan and the United States. It is cultivated without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, in 'Living Soil' that has been free from any toxic substances for at least 3 years and enriched by organic compost and other organic matter. This means that the soil and water supply are cleaner, which in turn protects the local population and wildlife. The resulting cotton fiber is processed into fabrics without the use of harmful chemicals or bleach. Green Tee Clothing offers both un-dyed and dyed organic cotton items, and to achieve organic certification only azo-free dyes that meet the requirements of the Global Organic Standard are used in the dyeing process; our Oeko-Tex Standard certification comprehensively addresses these issues.
Bamboo is gaining popularity in the fashion world due to its light, almost translucent yarn that has a natural quality that feels like silk, but with the practical advantage of being machine-washable. This natural fiber is hypoallergenic, absorbent, and is naturally antibacterial so will not hold odor. It also is the most sustainable of the natural fibers, reaching a mature height of 75 feet in just 45 to 60 days. And, because of its natural antibacterial properties, it needs no pesticides. It regenerates naturally through an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year and can be harvested repeatedly. Finally, when your bamboo garment finishes its useful life, it can return to nourish the earth, as it is 100% biodegradable.
