agender minimalist denim made with organic & recycled materials + environmentally conscious production

 

 

considered_materials


non considers it's materials for their environmental impact + durability
; goods that last longer, can be repaired or easily recycled are inherently more sustainable

our exclusive selvedge denim is 50/50 certified organic cotton + recycled cotton — meaning it can be recycled for next-life usage + contribute to a circular economy — which is rope-dyed in a rich, dark shade of indigo

organic cotton is grown without toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and can reduce CO2 emissions by 60% compared to regular cotton; our organic cotton is Organic Cotton Standard certified which ensure high labour standards and sustains the health of ecosystems by using natural processes

recycled cotton reduces the need for virgin cotton and lowers water and energy usage; our recycled cotton is reclaimed from the mill's production process to minimise naturally occurring waste 

our zipper + thread are made from post-consumer recycled polyester, helping to divert plastic from landfill or contributing to ocean pollution, which are also fully recyclable, ensuring a circular production loop

all our goods are vegan friendly + our packaging is made from certified recycled materials.

zero_waste + circularity
 

non is committed to developing circular design and zero-waste production processes to reduce our impact on the planet 

alongside using recycled materials, off-cut material from production is collected and recycled into new cotton yarn + our packaging is fully recyclable 

non has partnered with EON to digitise all goods with a ‘circular ID’ to take greater responsibility for our goods throughout their lifetime. A scannable NFC tag on each garment provides wearers with provenance and care instructions whilst next-generation recyclers can access circularity data, like fabric composition, to improve end-of-life management 

  

 

plastic_aware
 

over a third (35%) of all microplastics released into the world's oceans are from synthetic textiles — the majority through domestic washing

non currently uses post-consumer recycled polyester in our thread + YKK Natulon zippers to ensure durability, whilst minimising use of virgin synthetic materials

non recommends washing our goods as infrequently as possible —to reduce wear, energy usage + release of microplastics— and has partnered with attirecare to offer high-spec care products with organic ingredients to help minimise washing

non is committed to eliminating synthetic fibres + we are currently researching ways to achieve this
