I’m always on the hunt for perfect white tees in sustainable materials. It’s one of those staples I turn to at least a two or three times a week, and I think I always will. So it has to be perfect. The compostable I LOVE NATURE t-shirt from CALIDA fits right in on the path towards a brighter fashion future.
This t-shirt has not only the Cradle to Cradle, but also the Made in Green Label, and is made out of Micro-Tencel, a very sustainable material because it doesn’t need a lot of water. Tencel is such a great option to for example conventional cotton, and Micro-Tencel is even finer and luxurious to wear. I appreciate that the shirt is certified by globally recognized parties, I wish that all brands would commit to recognized labels, those that really mean something. Except for the sustainable qualities and the mentioned certifications, I love the feel of it. It’s kind of silky on your skin, really soft, but at the same time functional. I think the fact that it’s fully compostable says it all. It’s such an inspiration to see garments that stand the test aesthetically and also are produced in line with what the nature can handle. To me, that’s worth a lot.
