Low-Impact Materials

We're pretty obsessed with fabric — we've custom-developed over 100 in the last ten years. Our goal is to maximize our use of fabrics that minimize our environmental impact. We do that by using materials made from safe, recycled, regenerated, or renewable inputs whenever possible, such as:

Recycled Poly Recycled Nylon
Upcycled Cotton Organic Cotton
Tencel™ Lyocell Tencel™ Modal
Alpaca Linen
Hemp Sustainable Silk

Responsible Supply Chain

Our supply chain is what happens behind the scenes — aka where the magic happens. It includes turning raw materials into fabrics, cutting and sewing fabric into clothing, and getting stuff delivered. We expect all our vendor partners to meet the highest accountability standards in the industry, and we actively support our smaller partners in their certification processes.

Right Now
of our product manufacturing partners have signed our Vendor Code of Ethics & Conduct.
of our product manufacturing partners use reputable third-party audits like WRAP, Intertec, SMETA, or BSCI.

Recycling and Reselling

Fast fashion isn’t our style. That’s why we work with our community to close the loop on textile waste through our tee recycling program, Re-Spun , and donating excess clothing to non-profits like Delivering Good. But we also know one of the best things we can do to keep clothes out of landfills is shop secondhand — that’s where our ML Vintage Shop comes in.

By 2024

Giving Back To Our Community

As our business continues to grow (thanks for buying all those tees!) we’re able to make meaningful contributions back to our community. We do this through programs like Giving Tees (where $15 per tee sold gets directly donated to a non-profit we teamed up with), volunteering, and by donating directly (financially or in-kind) to causes we care about. Here are some of the folks we've worked with so far:

Keep Tahoe Blue Sierra Club
Delivering Good St. Anthony Foundation
Protect Our Winters SF LGBT Center
The Transgender District Youthcare
