We would like to explain to you a little bit about our Performance Tees and why they warrant such a title . We wanted to deliver something that was going to be both Pro-Planet and Technical, which is not an easy feat given that they often don’t go hand in hand. Being Pro-Planet does not mean that we have a 100% sustainable fabric, this is actually impossible, but it does mean that have taken on board lots of factors that contribute towards a sustainable approach. Here are some of the Pro-Plant moves that we are making.
Our Pro-Planet Moves:
- The yarns are ethically sourced and.
- The Water consumption used to produce the fabrics is low.
- The energy used to turn the natural fibers into cellulose is low.
- The fabrics are Bio-Degradable.
- 94% of our yarns are form natural sources.
So how can they also be Performance? 63% of the fabric composition is made out of a yarn called Lyocell. Lyocell is derived from wood pulp and transformed into a cellulose fabric, it is one of the most sustainable fabrics that exists. 6% of our fabric is composed out of Elastin. It is this blend of Lyocell and Elastin that gives our Performance Tees some pretty special performance qualities.
Our Performance Moves:
- Naturally Anti-Bacterial. ( no nasty chemical finishes)
- Naturally sweat-wicking.
- Skin Friendly & Soft (smooth fibers that are non -irritating )
- Stretchy (due to the Elastin)
So we hope that you understand why we are calling them ‘Performance Tees’ and why we think that they are so awesome If you are a Pro-Planet Yogi then you really are getting the best of both worlds and we are 100% sure that you will really dig them.
