These T-shirts are made from garbage
Girlfriend Collective released repurposed basics
Environmentally friendly fashions have evolved as of late, from hemp sandals to chic outfits. The indie retail brand, Girlfriend Collective, is debuting a line of sustainable T-shirts—made entirely from material waste. Because when it comes to well-tailored basics, one man's trash is another girlfriend's treasure.
Titled the Cupro Collection, the company estimates that each T-shirt will save 682 gallons of water. In addition, 10% of the sales will go to the nonprofit organization, Charity Water.
According to the website, “By focusing on humane manufacturing, meticulous design, and sustainable materials, we want to create a community of people who care about every step of the process.” Girlfriend Collective explains the process for turning garbage into high-end garb by writing, “Cupro is made from cotton linter, a fiber that sticks to cotton seeds and is usually downcycled or thrown into landfills, but now is being used to make luxe-feeling, sustainable clothes.”
The T-shirts come in a range of minimalist colors that will be the perfect everyday addition to any wardrobe. They are described as, "Breathable, hypoallergenic, and perfectly drapey."
