Can a t-shirt help change the world?

This isn't just about another t-shirt, pants or a sweater. Our fiber can look like natural cotton or even lustrous techno-performance wear. This natural versatility means the apparel is both beautiful & eco-conscientious since it's made from Ingeo fiber. Because Ingeo is made from plants, not oil, creating this apparel uses 50% less non-renewable energy & results in 75% less greenhouse gases (1).

Choosing apparel made from Ingeo fiber is a step in the right direction, an ingenious way to make a small change for the better. You can help change the world, even it's just one t-shirt at a time.
