Pure Waste offers closet essentials made cotton that would otherwise go to waste, saving water and energy and reducing CO2 emissions in the process.
Pure Waste material is excess from the textile and garment industries, mostly cutting waste from garment factories. "Cutting waste is collected from local factories which do not separate organic cotton waste from other waste," the company explains. "We can guarantee that the cutting waste we use is 100% cotton, but it is not 100% organic." While the company does use 40% polyester made from recycled PET bottles, its mission remains relevant: use all the material that already made to reduce environmental impact.

90% of the energy used in our factory comes from wind power Waste from bio toilets is recycled for cultivation and used to produce cooking gas for our workers. 90% of our web store shipments use reusable RePack packages. RePack is a reusable and returnable packaging service that claims to achieve a neutral carbon footprint after just two reuses. Customers can return used items. All Pure Waste clothing can be returned – and they'll recycle it so it can be reused for other textile purposes.
After you’re done with it, you can return your old Pure Waste clothing to them, either by mail or by taking it back to the store.
