You’ve seen these new eco-friendly fashion lines and products right? All promising that they’re saving the Red Woods and Polar Bears but we found a line that isn’t trying to save the world, they’re only trying to “produce the highest quality clothing possible while making conscious choices to minimize [the] impact to the planet.” Sounds pretty good to us! Degree 6 Clothing, is a sustainable apparel line for men, women and children that focuses on two of the world’s pressing environmental issues: water conservation and carbon emissions.
That’s why Degree 6 refuses to manufacture their T-shirts with cotton because of the excessive waste of water, and instead uses bamboo fabric, conserving almost 35 gallons of water in the process! Not to mention that dense bamboo forests absorb 35% more carbon monoxide than equivalent stands of trees. But other than materials, Degree 6 also uses recycled shipping materials and hybrid delivery vehicles. More than their eco-friendliness Degree 6 produces effortlessly sexy pieces, like the Bamboo Boyfriend T, $92, that has the slouchy, off-the shoulder neckline that you crave. Since Degree 6 Clothing is taking its steps to reduce their carbon footprint, the rest is up to you.
