The Rapha Men's Logo T-Shirt - Dark Navy / Hi-Vis Pink has the following sustainability attributes...
While conventionally grown cotton is a natural fibre and will biodegrade at the end of its life cycle, it takes an incredible amount of water to produce in the first place and requires a lot of synthetic chemicals. There is a shift in the fashion industry towards use of organic cotton because it is grown with non-fossil-fuel based fertilisers, no pesticides and it allows for crop rotation. Through these less impactful farming practices, organic cotton uses less energy and helps improve soil quality which draws CO2 from the atmosphere thereby directly combating the climate crisis. It's worth noting that not all organically grown cotton is third party certified, nor does an organic cotton fibre mean that the dyeing and processing of the garment is environmentally friendly or that a living wage is paid to farmers.
