How you can make a positive difference.
So what are your options to dispose your old shirts from landfill? Well, the number one rule is to buy well and make it last, however there will still become a time when your shirt has come to the end of its lifespan, so the next option is to compost it! We can rest easy knowing that cotton breaks down fast in the natural environment, its biodegradable, its recyclable, and its got a really important place in the circular economy for textiles. Our shirts are also made from natural fibres and non-harmful dyes that won't damage the environment. Here is an easy guide to composting your shirts so that next time you do a spring clean maybe some of your old pieces can go straight back into the soil!
Start off by getting the size down, you can cut things into little squares or just rip them into strands. They'll break down quicker, and you can scatter the pieces evenly.
Next, remove anything that won't biodegrade, this includes any plastics such as buttons, and you can keep them for repairs.
