At Tribe Azul We Believe Less Is More.
Sprayed with 16% of all insecticides and 7% of all pesticides on earth, conventional cotton the most chemical-heavy crop in the world. Simply by switching to clothing made from Organic Cotton, you’re helping reduce the number of chemicals that make their way into the environment.
By using sustainable farming methods, such as crop rotation, reducing pesticides and using “green water” (rainwater and water retained in the soil), Organic Cotton uses 91% less “blue water” (water from lakes and rivers), creates less pollution and emits fewer greenhouse gases during its production.
We also keep our inventory levels low in order to keep waste to a minimum.
Tribe Azul is committed to addressing the world’s single-use plastic crisis. Not only do we use 100% recyclable packaging, but by combining our Organic Cotton with the recycled polyester fabric, or rPET, (plastic bottles), we’re actively creating a circular economy.
"Playing our part in addressing the challenges our world faces today, we help to ensure a sustainable future for our children. We've made it our mission to provide affordable, ethically produced, environmentally friendly fashion basics."
Gus Dido, Founder
Sustainability is at the core of our business. Everything we do, from the fabrics we source and the packaging of our products to the way we run our business, is designed to support the environment, the local economy, and the people we work with.
Our aim for sustainability and environmentally friendly practices does not stop with our clothing. We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to address the global effects of deforestation. We pledge to plant one tree for every Tribe Azul item purchased.
Our organic cotton materials and organic cotton/recycled polyester range are certified by the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS), Organic Blended Content Standard (OCS) and the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) respectively. You can shop with peace-of-mind knowing that Tribe Azul meets all social and environmentally friendly practices.
