1% for you, 100% for the planet. Our planet is changing, are you?
Mohn Standard takes responsibility for the planet by partnering with Knickerbocker. Knickerbocker is a proud member of @1percentftp who donates 1% of annual sales to environmental nonprofits creating positive change. 100% of the profits from the Earth Day T-Shirt, will be donated to @1percentftp.
For Earth Day 2019 Knickerbocker MFG is proud to introduce a proprietary t-shirt made of post-industrial cotton and plastic bottles. Proudly made to their custom specs with @upcyclela.
The average t-shirt travels 16,000 miles. This recycled t-shirt travels just 5 miles and is made in the heart of Los Angeles, CA.
The UpCycle goal is to limit textile waste, which is practiced daily at the factories. By gathering unused fabric from their facilities they can upcycle the scraps into new yarn. Ultimately lowering the carbon footprint.
The end product t-shirt is created using a proprietary yarn, which is derived from post-industrial cotton and plastic bottles. Through the use of recycled components vs. virgin textiles, they not only minimize water, fuel and electricity footprint, but also eliminate thousands of pounds of new raw material waste.
