Sadly, the global fashion industry emits a hefty amount of greenhouse gases per year, thus contributing massively and actively to global warming. One of the reasons is that the vast majority of our beloved clothes are petroleum-based and made from fossil fuels, including polyester, acrylic & nylon (check your clothing labels, you may be surprised). These materials require significantly more energy in the production phase than natural or recycled fibers.
Sustainable brands on the other side often use materials from natural or recycled fabrics that require significantly less to no chemical treatment, little water, less energy and no fertilizers or pesticides to grow. Most organic fabrics such as bamboo, linen, hemp, and organic cotton are even biodegradable. These environmentally-sound fabrics go easy on the planet and are amazing sustainable alternatives.
That’s why Incredible Socks uses premium bamboo materials in every pair of socks we make. It’s always been our mission to never cause harm to the planet by existing. What’s more – every month we offset a ton of carbon from the environment to counteract any carbon our business has produced through shipping, manufacturing and, charging our electronics. When you buy Incredible Socks you can rest assured that in doing so you are not adding to your carbon footprint.
