Unlike industry-standard petroleum-based dyes, this shirt is dyed with madder root and logwood.
Madder root is one of the oldest natural dyes, known for its ability to make beautiful reds. It has been safely used for thousands of years, since at least ancient Egypt (cloth dyed with it has even been found alongside the possessions of King Tut).
Logwood dye is extracted from the heartwood of logwood trees. It has been safely used in Europe since the 1500s, and by the Mayans for hundreds of years before that.
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. Every single step of in the creation of this shirt, from the growing of the cotton, to making the shirt, is ecofriendly.
Also, plant dyes do not produce toxic run-off like conventional (and other organic dyes) and plant dyes remove carbon from the air during the plants' growth, helping reverse the cause of global climate change.
