What is EarthPositive ?
EarthPositive® is a green revolution in promotional apparel: Climate Neutral T-shirts. Organic and ethically made, but crucially, manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power.
EarthPositive® is a practical and immediate solution for business and fashion to face their biggest challenge and take immediate action to combat climate change.
LOW IMPACT FARMING
We have specifically chosen to work in regions where organic cotton is planted and harvested by hand, without mechanization, and because organic farming does not use
petroleum based chemical fertilizer, pesticide or herbicide, it is less reliant on fossil fuels.
EarthPositive® apparel is made in carbon neutral manufacturing facilities in India, from ‘low impact’ organic cotton, and is distributed through carbon neutral warehouses and offices in London that use only renewable green electricity.
EarthPositive® is a 100% organic product, produced under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and certified by The Control Union and The Soil Association. EarthPositive® is GM free.
EarthPositive® apparel is made to demonstrate the highest possible environmental, social and ethical standards, in one of the world’s most environmentally damaging industries, and to provide the music, fashion and promotional garment industries with a familiar product with which to promote awareness and take action on climate change. Now, the humble T- shirt, the most basic canvas for communicating a brand name, corporate identity, or political slogan has become the environmental product.
Climate Neutral means our industrial greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced to pre-industrial levels through low-impact (low emission) organic agriculture and carbon neutral industrial manufacturing, achieved through substituting energy use from fossil fuel powered power stations with clean renewable energy from wind turbines and solar power.
SAVE THE CLIMATE WASH COOL & LINE DRY
EarthPositive® apparel can be washed at 30°C; however, we ask EarthPositive consumers to consider the effects of domestic machine washing and tumble drying time and time again, which may contribute up to 80% of the energy used by a conventional cotton garment in its lifetime. We label our garments SAVE THE CLIMATE – WASH COOL – LINE DRY in addition to standard wash care instructions. We also recommend eco-friendly detergents, which have minimal aquatic toxicity and will biodegrade quickly and completely.
