Inspired by the documentary Go Further, starring Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie, HumanWear tees are more than just eco-friendly fashion.
“My desire was to form a company that would create the ‘greenest’ t-shirt possible… That was the unrelenting determination,” says HumanWear Founder and President Jellie Stanton.
These stylish tees exude style and thought-provoking messages at an affordable price. The first day I wore the “Human Being” tee, I felt like my whole self was smiling all day long. And the soft vintage feel was comfortable against my skin. In fact, I had to double check a few times to make sure I remembered to get dressed that day (just kidding).
HumanWear tees are printed with non-toxic water-based ink and are available in 100% organic cotton or a remarkable fabric called EcoHeather. This innovative fabric combines organic cotton with recycled polyester and rayon to create a material like no other. co-fi polyester is made from used bottles which are ground into tiny flakes, extruded into a fiber, and infused into polyester threads. The rayon comes from plant cellulose, a sustainable source of raw materials. (It’s important to note that Eco-Heather is developed using a mixture of recycled and organic threads alongside traditional ones in order to preserve vintage softness). To top it off, they’re created with low-impact dyes and natural wash methods–as well as biodegradable fabric softeners and natural enzymes for finishing.
So if you’re an eco-conscious human and want to make a cool statement, this is the tee for you.
“I hope my motivation to create a sustainable product will encourage someone who might like to do the same,” Jellie says. If only that statement could fit on a t-shirt.
