The Organic Trade Association says that producing one pair of regular cotton jeans takes three-quarters of a pound of fertilizers and pesticides. Each T-shirt takes one-third of a pound. Now think of how many tee shirts are produced in this counrty every day.
The farming of organic fibers, releases less CO2 into the air and uses 50 percent less energy. Cotton, hemp, bamboo, ramie, linen, and silk can all be grown organically.
Anything in your closet made of nylon, polyester, or acrylic, on the other hand, is bad bad - heavy in CO2-laden petroleum.
Green Getup prints all their shirts using water-based inks and eco-friendly manufacturing methods. Their cotton is certified organic, and dyed using environmentally friendly materials. Typically the screen printing process uses harmful chemicals and toxic PVC based inks. Green Getup does all their screen printing in house so we can assure only the safest manufacturing methods are used. So wear organic and help offset your carbon footprint.
Green Getup offers organic and recycled T's & hoodies for men, women, & children.
I got to try out their products with the Windmill pattern you see above. Cool huh? It's a really good tee - it has that soft vintage feel.
Of course being organic & printed with water based inks makes Green Getup a truly feel good product.
So do good for your world and your health - include organics in not only your diet, but in your wardrobe.
