What are our Tees made of?Posted by AJ Wiley on
At Kumawave, we have a passion for during our part in protecting the planet that we love. That is why we have chosen nature friendly, sustainable fabrics for all of our apparel. Our Tees, hoodies and crews are made of the following types of fabrics.
Here is what our short-sleeve tees are made of:
60/40 Recycled Cotton/Post-Consumer Recycled Polyester
Another good choice for the eco-conscious! 60/40 Recycled Cotton/Post-Consumer Recycled Polyester is made from 100% recycled fabric that’s never re-dyed, saving energy and water. This results in reducing pollutants and carbon emissions. 60/40 Recycled Cotton/Post-Consumer Recycled Polyester is soft and breathable and looks great!
rPET (Recycled Polythene Tetraphyte)
Using rPET (Recycled Polythene Tetraphyte) utilizes less resources to manufacture and reduces the amount of pollution to nature. rPET production consumes 70% less energy and emits 75% lower CO2 than polyester production. Also, utilizing plastic bottles to manufacture rPET keeps these bottles out of our landfills. Lastly, waste is minimized as rPET materials can be recycled over and over. As a bonus to all of these fantastic benefits to our planet, rPET fabric is strong, resilient and comfortable!
- Approximately 4 plastic bottles per shirt
Here is what our long-sleeve tees are made of:
There have been dramatic improvements in cotton growing techniques that have helped cotton growers and the textile value chain around the world meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Goals including reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 39% and increase soil carbon by 30% in the 10 years between 2015 and 2025. In the U.S., cotton has seen a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions since 1980 by utilizing more efficient irrigation systems and crop inputs more efficiently while increasing the amount of cotton produced per acre. Ring-spun cotton feels soft and smooth and more durable than standard cotton!
