Give A DaMN!

Throughout the month of November, we will be working to raise awareness around the issues facing Minnesota’s natural environment, and raising money to help local organizations working hard to protect our great state.

You have the power to help the organization that is important to you with the ability to select the charity your purchase helps support at...

8 plastic bottles = 1 MNIMALIST shirt

Minimalist Design, Minimal Impact. We are committed to making our products more sustainable and doing more to help reduce plastic pollution, so we are extremely proud of the fact our 100% recycled shirts are made from discarded water bottles and salvaged cotton. Each MNIMALIST sustainable shirt comes from 8 post-consumer plastic bottles, shredded into flakes, which is then melted into pellets. The pellets are then extruded into yarn that is knitted, cut and sewn into one super-soft tee. The printing process minimizes dyes, completely eliminates plastic packaging, and significantly reduces the use of chemicals, water, and energy. Check our our entire line of sustainable apparel here. We still have a long way to go on this journey of reducing our impact,...
