ETHICAL STREETWEAR - 100% ORGANIC COTTONPETA approved 'vegan' and cruelty-free
Inspired by the positive energy of visits to New York City and Milan and our motto, 'Be Kind + Live Wild', McDonald painted designs on his iPhone now printed to our ethical, sustainable and organic streetwear.
McDonald considers it important to be kind to others and yourself and to live a life of fun and adventure whilst mindful of the planet and the benefits it affords our general wellbeing.
Each of our T shirts is 'made to order' ensuring 'zero waste' status and each is printed in England. We use only ethically sourced and sustainable 100% organic cotton T shirts which are also PETA approved as Vegan and animal cruelty-free. Our packaging is also made in England and is both sustainable and 100% recyclable.
Did you know that organic cotton works in harmony with nature because it does not require the use of synthetic chemicals in the form of nitrogen fertilisers and artificial pesticides? It is these synthetic and artificial elements that contribute to climate change and can damage local ecosystems and the health of local people hence why we choose only 100% organic cotton in our T Shirts.
