SUSTAINABLITY UPDATE


Did you know that 10% of worldwide CO2 comes from clothing, that 60% of clothes are made from or with plastic and that a dump truck of textiles waste goes to landfill or incineration every second?

That's why our hoodies + tees manufacturers have set out to become the UK's sustainable print-on-demand t-shirt supplier and built the first circular economy in sustainable fashion’… and that is why Bird + Wolf chose them.

 All Bird + Wolf hoodies + tees are made from natural materials, using renewable energy, and we only print products on-demand, in the seconds after they are ordered.

 

One of the key values we looked for in a manufacturer was transparency. Our manufacturers regularly visits production sites and we provide us with a library of real behind the scenes from across their entire supply chain.

A word from our manufacturers… ‘Organic cotton farming methods are better for producers and the ecosystem around the farms. Instead of more toxic pesticides and fertilisers, co-planting and insect traps are used along with the special ingredient - cow poo. It encourages biodiversity and leads to the extra soft feel of our organic cotton clothing. Fewer inputs also means less water, but even organic cotton is still a thirsty crop. So where you grow it matters. The fields that grow the organic cotton for our products are in the North of India, where the monsoons fill reservoirs that supply almost all the water needed.’

 

'Teemill were the obvious choice and partner for us when we were looking for a brand to supply our hoodies and t shirts. Their eco values and forward thinking, not only fundamentally in terms of the environment and the level of care and attention into supplying the very best sustainable product but their technology and ease of use all ran parallel with our vision and values.'
