The basic T-shirt is a wardrobe essential, but as comfy as regular cotton tees are, they also come at a tremendous cost to the environment. Conventional cotton is among the dirtiest crops on the planet. It requires heavy usage of pesticides and fertilizers. What’s more, it demands a huge amount of water. To grow the cotton needed for a single t-shirt, it requires a staggering 2,700 litres of water, the quantity a person drinks in 2.5 years.
Our Pennington branded Unisex crew neck t-shirts are organic and ethically made, but crucially, manufactured solely using sustainable energy, EarthPositive® and Carbon Neutral.
They are screen printed in our hometown of Kendal by Ben Dodge. He takes an eco-conscious and environmentally responsible approach to T-shirt printing, and only uses water-based and phthalate-free textile ink. He does not use plastic inks due to their persistence in the environment. Be part of the Penno team sporting one of these!!
