There is no magic bullet to solve the fashion industries sustainability issues. There is no one product that is 100% carbon neutral. As with most things in life it’s best to look at yourself and what you can do to contribute. Buying organic is great but organic cotton is water intensive and is usually grown in areas that suffer water shortages and droughts. Bamboo is a self-sustaining crop compared to hard wood trees. However, it still goes through the same manual production methods so can’t be classed as 100% environmentally friendly.
Recycled polyester is a fantastic alternative as it keeps plastic out of landfill and the ocean. But let’s face it polyester isn’t ideal for everybody or for every occasion.
See our latest available bamboo items below from our Spring / Summer 2022 Collection:
- Where we can, we will use organic or recycled without compromising the product.
- On all pieces we will cut down the miles that our components travel in our production and sourcing.
- All our labelling and packaging already comes from sustainable sources, our next step is all trims too.
- Offsetting the miles our parcels travel. Every parcel sent out from Me & Thee will have the miles it travels offset and the proceeds will got to various ethical charities.
The funds raised through offsetting our parcels go to the following sustainability charities:
Verra – Provides innovative solutions to environmental and social problems.
