"The fashion market is flooded with anti-social and unsustainable working labels. In these times only a few fashion labels offered eco-textiles. But a quick look at their collections however showed their sense for fashion and style wasn't quite on the same level as their environmental awareness."
Green Shirts encourages local production, climate-neutral shipping methods, renewable energy, and recycled packaging. It supports ecological and fair projects by donating a portion of its profits.
Green Shirts uses a high amount of natural and organic materials such as organic cotton, linen, and hemp. It also uses a moderate amount of recycled polyester and recycled cotton.
The German brand creates many clothes out of semi-synthetic fabrics such as Tencel lyocell and viscose. Tencel regenerated cellulosic fibers are particularly environmentally friendly because of closed-loop production processes that recover and reuse almost all water and chemicals used.
Green Shirts prints its designs locally in Germany. Its clothes are produced in Indian factories under high social and environmental standards guaranteed by the Fair Wear Foundation with brand performance checks, factory audits, and training sessions.
The Fair Wear Code of Labour Practices is based on internationally recognized standards derived from ILO Conventions. The label pays living wages to all workers and ensures safe and healthy work conditions.
Green Shirts doesn't sell any clothing made from animal-derived materials and is 100% vegan. It received the PETA Approved Vegan certification.
Green Shirts doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, and energy use, pollution, and waste across its supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goal or timeline to improve in the future either.
