EcoOutfitters is a new ethical, sustainable school uniform company set up by two mothers who are passionate about improving school uniforms that our children spend so much time in.
This project came about after their children started school, when they realised that most of their school clothes contained dangerous chemicals treated with stain resistant, crease resistant Teflon coatings, which can be harmful for their health and the environment.
Children wear school uniform for at least 35 hours a week, so naturally these are the most important items of clothing in their wardrobe. Unfortunately, most of school clothes are made from either a polycotton mix or plain polyester, which is essentially plastic - a substance derived directly from crude oil. These common fabrics aren't sweat absorbent, don't allow the skin to breathe, and can trigger rashes and aggravate skin conditions such as eczema. To address this, EcoOutfitters created school uniforms which are ethically made, healthy, sustainable, and durable - all made from 100% pure organic cotton certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) who guarantee that the whole supply chain from field to final product meets strict environmental and social standards.
