Earth Positive is the low carbon footprint apparel. Through Tarkine’s relationship with Continental Clothing Co., we gain access to Earth Positive products.

Climate Neutral

EarthPositive Apparel is 100% organic with 90% Reduced CO2

The carbon footprint was calculated in accordance with BSI PAS2050 methodology, and certified by the Carbon Trust Cartifications.

The 90% reduction has been achieved by a combination of low-impact organic farming, efficiency in manufacturing and transportation, and the use of renewable energy instead of the fossil fuel based grid electricity.

It has been calculated that a single EarthPositive T-shirt saves around 7 kilograms of CO2, whereas a hooded sweatshirt saves up to 28 kgs of greenhouse gases. These are actual reductions achieved in the manufacturing, without any carbon offsetting.

Carbon Footprinting

The Carbon Footprint of a product is the total the amount of CO2 and other greenhouse gases emitted as part of a product's manufacture, distribution, use and disposal. Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are so called because they trap heat in the Earth's atmosphere and keep the planet warm. The main gases are carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and nitrous oxide.

In January 2008, Continental Clothing Co. became the first brand in the world to calculate the carbon footprint and place the Carbon Reduction Label on textile products.
