Everybody.World runs on Trash. Since 2016, we’ve been pioneering biodegradable materials turning them into useful, long lasting goods—and in doing so, have repurposed over half a million pounds of waste into the Trash Collection.
We invented the yarn using waste from the cotton manufacturing process and forged a traceable supply chain that operates entirely within North America, paring down our footprint and eliminating the use of virgin resources.
The Trash Tee was the first T-shirt on the planet made from 100% Waste Cotton.
After food, fashion is the thing every human on the planet interacts with one way or another. And every ecosystem is affected. This is why hyperlocal matters.
We knit, sew, finish and customize in Los Angeles, where we’re based, keeping our carbon footprint low. In reimaging materials, the supply chain, and consumption we're able to make some of the most ubiquitous products on the planet without ecological offense and always in fair-wage factories from seed to seal.
Hyperlocal supply chain, entirely within North America.
Most T-shirts rely on several countries on 2-3 continents to be made. That’s a massive carbon footprint with around 39,000 miles of CO2 emissions in search of the lowest paid workers and lax environmental laws. An estimated 726 gallons of water are used per shirt in growing virgin cotton and manufacturing.
Our world-first 1.0 Trash Tee shrunk emissions by being made in L.A. from 100% Waste Cotton.
For 2.0, we updated the body to a Tubular construction, meaning no side seams for hyperefficient manufacturing.
In each Tubular Trash Tee:
~5.5 fewer gallons of water used
~80% less fabric cutting waste
~10% less manual sewing labor
~Less energy consumption
(Compared to the original Trash Tee)
Now we've hit a new low. Our NE.W seasonal colors have minimal water waste because they’re garment dyed in a closed-loop system, which reduces the CO2 emissions down to 0.73 kg.
Our manufacturing CO2 emissions have hit a new low.
This is Workers, Ecology, Ideas in action. A reimagining of materials, supply chain, and consumption as a whole.
A more sustainable world is a collective effort, strengthened by the expertise and commitment of many, and always evolving. If you have ideas, or want to reach out for more data on our ongoing experiment we welcome you to get in touch.
