A hoodie, hooded sweatshirt or hoody – whichever is your chosen name for one of our favourite pieces of clothing we, here at Nature Threads do believe one thing – choosing organic hoodies that are made from natural fibres is important. Our super-soft organic hoodies are made from certified organic cotton in a renewable energy-powered factory, printed using low-waste technology and shipped worldwide in plastic-free packaging – we also plant a tree for every purchase. Below you’ll find out a lot more about our Men’s, Women’s and kids’ organic hoodies, what they are made of and why we believe that it’s important to choose a natural organic garment that’s plastic-free.
Why Choose Our Organic Hoodies?
The Fashion industry is responsible for 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions (World Economic Forum) and is one of the world’s largest polluters. This is HUGE, so being conscious of sustainable consumption of natural products will make a massive difference.
Water – It takes around 700 gallons of water to produce one standard t-shirt (imagine how much it takes to make one hoodie!?). The fields that grow the organic cotton used for Nature Threads hoodies are in the North of India. There, the monsoons fill reservoirs that supply almost all the water needed, rather than drawing on water that could be used for drinking.
Textile dyeing is also the world’s second-largest polluter of water as the waste from the dyeing process is often drained into rivers, streams or ditches. When Nature Threads organic hoodie fabrics are dyed the water is then recovered, cleaned and then recirculated. It’s even clean enough to drink before being used again.
Carbon – The 10% of carbon emissions is not just the airliners taking stock into stores for fast fashion seasons, it’s also the pesticide, fertilisers and chemicals that go into conventional farming. There is also waste oil that’s extracted to make polyester and other plastic fibres. The emissions of all these combined equal more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Thanks to our suppliers using only natural materials in Nature Threads organic hoodies mean no fossil fuels and having only super soft organic cotton.
If the current system continues, the fashion industry’s share of the carbon budget will jump to 26% by 2050, according to a report from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (2017). To help counter this and aid to re-establish a balance our supplier’s factories use renewable energy from the wind and sun. On top of this planting, a tree for every item purchased at Nature Threads helps to recover CO2 from the world around us.
What Are Our Organic Hoodies Made Of?
Our organic hoodies are made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, grown and sourced from the north of India, made in a renewable energy-powered factory and printed using low-waste technology in the UK.
