The Rab Men's Stance Sketch Tee - Black has the following sustainability attributes...
Carbon Neutral or Climate Neutral brands have been third party verified as reducing their carbon footprint, often balancing their remaining emissions with carbon credits to support projects that are combating the climate emergency.
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
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.
