Unlike industry-standard petroleum-based dyes, this organic shirt is dyed with natural plant dyes from indigo leaf.
Indigo leaf dye has been safely used for thousands of years (dating back to 2000-3000 B.C.) for its ability to make strong and beautiful blues. In the 1800s, natural indigo was almost completely replaced by synthetic indigo, which is derived from the known toxin aniline (a chemical that has been used to make rocket fuel).
Ethically made all the way through.
From start to finish, every company involved in Sustain's supply chain provides fair wages and safe working conditions.
Made with GOTS certified organic cotton fabric and thread - the highest standard in organic.
Sustain's natural dyes do not produce toxic run-off like conventional (and even "low impact" dyes), where 30-50% of the dye ends up as petrochemical waste.
Also, the plants grown for plant dyes remove more carbon from the atmosphere during their growth than is released during the dyeing process, helping to reverse the cause of global climate change.
The model is 5'6" and wearing a size small. A small is 20.5" long and 35" at the bust unstretched.
Care Instructions: Machine wash on the gentle cycle using a mild pH-neutral detergent and without fabric softeners. Tumble dry on low.
