Low Impact Farming
We have specifically chosen to work in regions where organic cotton is planted and harvested by

EarthPositive apparel is made in carbon neutral manufacturing facilities in India, from ‘low impact’ organic cotton, and is distributed through carbon neutral warehouses and offices in London that
