Why Organic Cotton Matters
Conventional cotton is one of the dirtiest crops on the planet, heavily reliant on pesticides and excessive water use. It has an enormous carbon footprint. The toxic chemicals used to grow it are linked to higher rates of cancer, asthma, and birth defects where the crop is grown. Farmers grow GOTS organic certified cotton without pesticides. It has about half the carbon footprint of conventional cotton. It uses around 70 percent less water. GOTS also validates fair and ethical treatment for the farmers, which results in safer, more sustainable communities.
MADE SAFE® Certified
Our Organic Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt is MADE SAFE® Certified — a rigorous scientific screening process that only allows the use of ingredients that are not known or suspected to harm human health, animals, aquatic life, or ecosystems. This distinction matters. By verifying our apparel through this strict third-party validation, we’re able to provide our customers and our workers the added assurance that the clothing we make is free of harsh chemicals and toxic materials — from sourcing to manufacturing. This is better for the planet, too.
Proudly Sewn In L.A.
More than 95 percent of clothing is imported from overseas. Often, the clothes are made in factories with devastating environmental impacts and terrible human rights violations, including forced child labor. Intensive carbon emissions from transporting garments overseas increase the greenhouse gasses that lead to the climate crisis. That’s why we cut, dye, and sew this collection right here in Los Angeles with GOTS certified organic cotton (CU863637) sourced from India. GOTS has also thoroughly vetted our factory partners to ensure we’re meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.
From our materials, to our factories, to our environmental footprint, we have nothing to hide. We use natural, organic, and innovative fabrics, we stitch everything in our GOTS certified facilities in Los Angeles, and we’re a Certified B Corporation and 1% For the Planet members. Those groups verify our positive environmental and social impact from our supply chain all the way to the finished product that ends up on your doorstep.
Climate Neutral Certified
Carbon emissions are the leading cause of the climate crisis. Hass is one of 27 apparel companies that is Climate Neutral Certified, effectively making our business carbon neutral. We work with Climate Neutral to reduce our emissions, then we measure and voluntarily offset more than 100% of our footprint, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
Created by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, 1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects sustainably-minded businesses like Hass to environmental nonprofits. As members, we donate 1 percent of our annual revenues to verified organizations that address the interrelated issues of climate change, healthy food systems, land management, water resources, pollution, and wildlife diversity.
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balance purpose and profit — they legally commit to consider the impacts of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. It’s a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Reed + Gwen, as a subsidiary of Avocado Green Brands, has a B Score of 126.2 points — well beyond the 80-point minimum threshold.
The emissions from burning fossil fuels are the leading cause of our unprecedented climate crisis. Hass is proud to be Climate Neutral Certified for net zero emissions. We work with the nonprofit to voluntarily measure, reduce, and offset more than 100% of our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions by supporting carbon offset initiatives through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
Organic fabrics are better for you, better for farmers, and better for the planet. And we’re proud to use cotton and wool that’s certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard (CU863637) — the gold standard for organic fabrics. GOTS verifies these fabrics are free from harmful chemicals and meet the highest standards for social and environmental responsibility.
