Our Materials

Learn about the amazing sustainable materials and fibres we use.

The fashion and textile industry is considered one of the top polluters, and one of the heaviest natural resources consumers in the world. With staggering statistics of producing 20 percent of wastewater while creating more greenhouse gas emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined.1

Which is why we’ve committed to finding and sourcing the most sustainable fibres and materials available. It’s not only our responsibility to ensure we leave the smallest impact on our environment, we also take great pride in finding better, healthier, and more eco-progressive solutions for our customers.

Our Crown Materials are materials that tick all of our high sustainable standards, and we feel great knowing our customers are wearing not just what’s best for them but also for the planet.

    Eco-Log

    Every tentree purchase makes a difference in the world. Not only are you reforesting the planet, you’re also an advocate for sustainable living. Our garments are made of environmentally-conscious materials that’s kinder to the planet and feels great to wear. We dug into the three main factors of environmental impact: water, waste, and carbon emissions. With help from an environmental group, GreenStep, we analysed our current and upcoming production lines to identify their impact. The result is our Eco-Log, a calculator that compares the environmental footprint of tentree’s products to their conventional counterparts.

Our Packaging

As part of our Earth-First pledge to the planet, we’re committed to replacing all single-use plastics by sustainable options, and eliminating virgin packaging materials from our supply chain by 2023. We’ve been working hard to reduce our packaging output. So far, we’ve put solutions into play like roll packing shipments from our manufacturers to eliminate polybags and using FSC-certified recycled paper for all inserts.
