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

*Garments containing at least 30% sustainable fibers.

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
100%
of our vendors have signed our code of conduct.
83%
of our manufacturing partners use reputable third-party audits like WRAP, Intertec, SMETA, or BSCI. (What does this mean?)
By 2022
100%
of our manufacturing partners will use reputable third-party audits.*
*Our partners who don’t have audits yet are actively working to get them with our help. As smaller organizations, it can be expensive and time consuming to complete the audit process, but we’re confident they will get there as soon as possible.

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. 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 ReLove Vintage Shop comes in.

Right Now
250K
total tees diverted from landfills.
By 2022
350K
total tees and other items will be diverted from landfills.*
*By the end of 2022 we aim to recycle all types of clothing — not just tees.

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 and by donating directly to causes we care about. Here are some of the folks we’ve worked with so far:

Sierra Club National Parks Foundation
Keep Tahoe Blue The Trevor Project
The Conscious Kid The Transgender District
