Do you know the eco-impact of a deep colored cotton shirt or pants?

WE LOVE:

  • A deep colored garment…
  • …that doesn’t fade in the wash

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Deep colored garments have a high cost of dyeing…
  • which requires a longer dyeing process…
  • …and huge amount of water and energy
  • And the dye can often rub off on other fabrics
