The perfectly engineered Zero Waste Tee. 

Every inch of fabric was used in the creation of this garment, with absolutely nothing wasted. (Typically 15-25% of material is wasted when a pattern is cut out of fabric.)

Our 300 GSM  jersey material is 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled cotton. We use that specific blend of fibers to ensure the yarn is long and strong enough to hold up to years of wear, while using the best materials we could find. 

Our classic relaxed fit is unisex with a bound rib neckline, and back neck fabric for extra reinforcement. It is pre-shrunk and ready to wear.

We are starting with three classic colors, Black, White, and Heather Gray.

Our tee contains 0 plastics, 0 synthetics and is 100% biodegradable, even down to our thread and labeling. You can even compost it in your backyard at the end of its long life! 

Our manufacturing process uses 95% less water and produces 45% fewer  greenhouse emissions than conventional cotton. 

We believe in the importance of certifications. You should too. Third party certifications create a verifiable system where materials are what they are claimed to be, dyes and chemistry are verified to be safe and non-toxic, and labor is regularly checked to be socially compliant and ethical.

FAQ

What do you mean by Zero Waste?

Imagine placing a circle in the middle of a page, cutting the circle out, and throwing away the rest of the paper. This is what the entire fashion industry does when they make your clothes, wasting an average of 20% of fabric that is never used in the making of a garment, typically ending up in landfills. That's where Zero Waste Design comes in. Through extremely complex pattern engineering we create perfectly complimentary shapes that use 100% of the fabric, that when sewn together create the garments that you see here. Welcome to the future!

In addition to Zero Waste, how else are you thinking sustainably?

We take the life span of any garment very seriously. While Zero Waste Design and Manufacturing takes care of the creation of the garment, the ingredients, materials, and construction used will not only give a garment a longer lifespan, but have a substantial impact should the garment reach 'end of life.'

This means using materials that are easy to recycle, reclaim, and return to earth. You can even compost your garment at the end of its life! More importantly, we avoid mixing synthetic and natural materials, which cannot be easily separated or recycled.

When will my product ship?
