As Julie Dawkis alludes to in systems, her poem for Dream Beyond, the fifth issue of To The People zine, our collective healing happens first as a dream, a thought. But what happens next is what makes all the difference.
This limited-edition Protect the Planet tee, which we made for you with the planet in mind, is made from 100% recycled cotton. It has a loose fit and is ready to be worn by all. The tee is pre-shrunk, so it’ll retain its classic shape, and is locally manufactured in Los Angeles, California to keep carbon emissions to a minimum. It shouts what we believe: invest in community and the environment, and together we can help the world become stronger.
When creating our classic oversized plastic bottle crewneck, YTTP Studios turned to one of our partners in sustainability, Upcycle, a Los Angeles-based sustainable clothing manufacturer. Upcycle creates clothing out of recyclable materials already available, and their in-house knitting and dyeing processes use 40% less water and power than conventional methods. "The [manufacturing] process needed a makeover," says Tabitha Vogelsong, co-founder of Upcycle.
