Why so Very Good?
'We believe that everything we create should be designed with its end of life in mind'
We are unique in that everything down to our elastic, labels, sewing thread and packaging is compostable. Our products contain no spandex, polyester or nylon. Every component has its origin in the earth, to which we hope it will in time harmlessly return, rather than add to our landfill burden.
Things we care about
Australians send 85% of textiles to landfill, two thirds of which are man made synthetic fibres like Polyester which take 200 years to break down. We use compostable textiles and packaging, whilst minimising production waste through pre-selling and making only to order - true Slow Fashion!
Before they end up in landfill, the synthetic textiles we wash and wear release half a million tonnes of plastic microfibre into our oceans through washing. It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. We can change this by making better choices about the fabrics we buy.
But we still want clothes!
Awareness is the first step. We all need clothes and we want to feel OK about buying them. Our products are not only compostable at end of life, but arrive wrapped in recyclable tissue paper and sent in a 100% compostable mailer, where possible, via Sendle - Australia's first carbon-neutral courier company.
