The Fair Shirt Project was created to offer men looking for ethical clothing more options.
All of our shirts are produced at Work+Shelter, an ecoconscious production center in India that follows fair-trade labor practices. Like all clothing brands, we're a work in progress, constantly researching sustainable fabric and trim options and taking into account feedback from our customers so that we can evolve and improve.
With two batches of short-sleeve styles in the hopper, we're now working on long-sleeves, using luscious sustainable denim and naturally dyed cotton twills. You can stay in the know by signing up for our email list below or following us on Instagram.
FAIR LABOR PRACTICES
Traditionally the people who cut and sew your clothes are the lowest on the power structure ladder, and as such are easy targets for economic and social abuses. Social enterprises like Work+Shelter are helping change the landscape of the garment industry by offering paid training, fair and consistent wages, and decent work facilities. Employees work 8-hour days (with chai breaks!), receive support for health care and education, and have the opportunity to earn raises and promotions.
SUSTAINABLE FABRICS & TRIMS
Our long-sleeve twill shirts are naturally dyed at Sam Vegetable Colours Pvt. Ltd., a GOTS-certified dyer in Uttar Pradesh, India. Natural dyes have benefits for the textile workers, the environment, and the wearer. Read more here.
We changed from plastic buttons to coconut buttons in fall 2020.
For protection, your shirt will be mailed in a moisture-resistant, 100% recycled plastic bag (made of #4 recycled polyethylene). This bag can be recycled via grocery store drop-off bins (with plastic grocery bags). This and all our packaging comes from EcoEnclose, and you can check their site for more details.
Your shipping envelope is made of 100% recycled, 97% post consumer waste paperboard. It is recyclable via any paper recycling program and is naturally biodegradable.
Your shipping label is made of 100% post-consumer waste and uses a recycle-compatible adhesive.
