Why is sustainable clothing on Blue Oceans Green Earth, a plastic reduction site? Because synthetic fabrics such as Polyester are a form of plastic.

The brands below offer variety of Made in USA sustainable clothing options and we were able to confirm USA manufacturing facilities. It’s important to research and verify each brand’s specific practices to ensure they align with your own values. For example, plastic recycled into clothing may fall under the sustainable umbrella but it doesn’t break the cycle of making plastic in the first place; it simply delays the day when it ends up in the environment.
