Unisex shirt, Post Waste Collection. Pure Waste
Long sleeve shirt with a chest pocket.
20% clothes we once wore (post consumer cotton and denim)
40% of cotton mill waste
40% polyester from recycled plastic bottles
The material used is cutting waste from the clothing industry, which is processed into new yarn with recycled polyester. In addition, there is raw material recovered from used clothing and jeans. The production of a new fabric therefore does not require any new material. The fibers are sorted by color and therefore no dyeing is required.
Water footprint: 1.9 liters (99% less than similar products made of new material).
Carbon footprint: 1.7 kg CO2e (50% less than similar products made of new material).

In the size chart, the dimensions are measured on the garment. A half chest circumference is used because it is easy to measure on a garment already found in a closet for comparison.
