Embracing Sustainability with 100% Combed Organic Cotton

 Why Choose Combed Organic Cotton?

  • Softer and smoother feel: Combed cotton undergoes an additional process that removes short fibers, resulting in a soft and luxurious fabric.
  • Hypoallergenic: Organic cotton is grown without harmful chemicals, making it a safer choice for sensitive skin.
  • Environmentally friendly: Organic farming practices protect the soil, conserve water, and reduce the overall carbon footprint.

 A Promise of Quality and Ethics

Fairwear Certified: Ensuring Fair Labor Practices Fairwear certification guarantees that the production process follows ethical labor practices, ensuring fair wages and decent working conditions for workers.


GOTS Certified: The Gold Standard of Organic Textiles The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification means that the t-shirt is made from 100% organic fibers, adheres to eco-friendly production processes, and maintains high social criteria throughout the supply chain.


Climate Neutral: Reducing the Carbon Footprint Being Climate Neutral certified means that the Unisex Extra Heavy Jersey T-Shirt is produced with minimal greenhouse gas emissions. EarthPositive is the low carbon footprint apparel.

EarthPositive Apparel is 100% organic with 90% Reduced CO2

The carbon footprint was calculated in accordance with BSI PAS2050 methodology, and certified by the Carbon Trust.

The 90% reduction has been achieved by a combination of low-impact organic farming, efficiency in manufacturing and transportation, and the use of renewable energy instead of the fossil fuel based grid electricity.

It has been calculated that a single EarthPositive T-shirt saves around 7 kilograms of CO2, whereas a hooded sweatshirt saves up to 28 kgs of greenhouse gases. These are actual reductions achieved in the manufacturing, without any carbon offsetting.

PETA Approved Vegan:
 Cruelty-Free Fashion This certification ensures that no animal-derived materials are used in the production process, making the t-shirt suitable for vegans and those who support cruelty-free fashion.


Oeko Tex: Confidence in Textiles The Oeko Tex certification guarantees that the t-shirt is free from harmful substances and safe for human use.

The Importance of a Living Wage in the Fashion Industry

Tiruppur, known as the knitwear capital of India, is home to Continental, a Fair Wear Foundation member company. Mariusz, the CSR manager for Continental, regularly visits Tiruppur and has built a close relationship with his supplier over the years. He is on a mission to improve working conditions at the factories where Continental clothes are made, including ensuring that the workers are paid a living wage.

A living wage is the minimum amount of money needed to meet basic needs such as food, housing, utilities, bus fare, medicine, and education. Sadly, most workers in India do not make a living wage and struggle to support themselves and their families. This can lead to conflicts and even suicide.

To calculate a living wage, different organizations offer benchmarks and numbers, but Mariusz wanted to hear it directly from the workers themselves. He engaged with them to understand their specific needs and made adjustments to ensure they were paid a living wage.

Continental has been producing T-shirts in India since 2007 with a goal of minimizing negative impacts on the environment, workforce, and local economy. They started by regulating excessive overtime and improving health and safety at the workplace, and eventually covered most of the pillars, including a living wage.

This is a crucial step in ensuring that workers in the fashion industry are treated fairly and can support themselves and their families. The fashion industry has a long history of exploiting workers and paying them less than a living wage. It is important for companies like Continental to lead the way and set an example for others to follow.

In conclusion, a living wage is not only a moral obligation but also a necessary step in creating a fair and sustainable fashion industry. Companies like Continental should be applauded for their efforts to ensure that workers are paid a living wage and treated with dignity and respect.

We consider waste as a valuable resource that reduces the amount of rubbish going into landfills or even worse, ending up in our rivers and oceans.

We have all seen how much plastic debris there is already floating around, seriously damaging marine wildlife. Soon there could be more plastic than fish.

Our SALVAGE brand is made entirely from raw materials derived from waste: recycled organic cotton blended with recycled polyester that comes from used plastic PET bottles. PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate – the most common thermoplastic polymer.

How many plastic bottles go into each Salvage product?

The numbers below represent an average of standard 1.5-litre water bottles.

EarthPositive achieves Detox To Zero

We are one of the first brands in the world to meet the strictest environmental criteria of the Greenpeace DETOX Campaign.

The EarthPositive supply chain has passed the Detox To Zero audit, and the products have become compliant with the Greenpeace Textile Procurement Standard. We are the second in the world, and the first outside Europe supplier to be approved under the strict standard.

The standard focuses on the chemical inputs and outputs throughout the supply chain, requiring the completion of extensive laboratory testing of the wastewater and sludge in our zero-discharge wet processing plant in India, ensuring conformity in accordance with the DETOX TO ZERO Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL).

The textile industry is the second largest polluter of freshwater worldwide.

Up to 3500 chemical substances are used to turn raw materials into textiles. Approximately 10 % of these are hazardous to human health or the environment.
