We are delighted to announce the support of Earth Positive Clothing, a division of Continental Clothing.
When looking for companies to support our challenge, we have looked to companies that have an ethical stance that is in harmony with our own views on how the planet and its workers should be treated. There are few companies that match our strong ethical stance in the same way that Earth Positive do.
The products that Earth Positive produce are strictly “Climate Neutral”. They are made to demonstrate the highest possible environmental, social and
ethical standards, in one of the world’s most environmentally damaging industries, and to provide the promotional garment industries with a familiar product with which to promote awareness and take action on climate change.

Low Impact Farming
We have specifically chosen to work in regions where organic cotton is planted and harvested by
hand, without mechanization, and because organic farming does not use petroleum based chemical fertilizer, pesticide or herbicide, it is less reliant on fossil fuels.
EarthPositive apparel is made in carbon neutral manufacturing facilities in India, from ‘low impact’ organic cotton, and is distributed through carbon neutral warehouses and offices in London that use only renewable green electricity.
EarthPositive apparel is certified by the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, Class I. The Oeko-Tex 100 Standardis a guarantee of the safety of textiles and dyestuffs to human health. It also means we take more care in adopting environmentally friendly production methods throughout the manufacturing of EarthPositive apparel.
