Our "Welcome To The Green Side 🌱" products are made with a Certified Eco-friendly fabric.  Look out for our stickers to show which Eco-friendly material we are using for that product, which will also be explained in the description of each product.


Giving back to our planet

We want to give back to the Earth 🌍 So we have pledged to help fund reforestation and help reduce CO2 emissions with Ecologi 🌳 As of June 2021, Unwonted Apparel will be planting 1 tree for every customer sale we get!  We'll also be off setting any CO2 from our company.  Such as stock deliveries from airfreight and road transport, customer deliveries and personal transport (me nipping to the Post Office down the road) 

With your help and support, we'll be a carbon neutral business helping reduce CO2 levels throughout the World and help plant trees in Madagascar and right here in the UK - Dalry, Scotland.  Be sure to check out our contributions here - https://ecologi.com/unwontedapparel

An example, if we receive 250 orders in a given month.  We'll plant 250 trees and also offset CO2 emissions by 5 tonnes! (We'll do 1 ton of CO2 for every 50 orders received)  To give you an idea, 1 ton of CO2 is the equivalent to around 2,513 miles driven in a family car or 121,643 mobile phones charged! 

We are super stoked to include this into our Eco and Sustainability journey and look forward with you to help make an impact for a greener world.  


Look out for our Bottled water logo.   This indicates the product is made using Plastic Waste including plastic bottles and Polyester Waste.  These materials are processed into plastic chips and melted into yarns, from which fabric is spun making our awesome eco-friendly leggings and crop tops.   This saves water and energy, reduces greenhouse-gas emissions (See the image below to show the Life cycle of the plastics)

Look out for the Organic Leaf logo.  This indicates the product is made using approved Organic materials.  We pride ourselves in supplying the highest quality apparel from nature-friendly sources. This includes PETA-approved products, so you can set your mind at ease no animals are harmed or animals products used in any of our Organic products. 

*Note not all our leggings are currently made from Recycled plastic or Organic materials, some of our older stock won't be made from either materials.  We are ensuring all our future products will be Eco-Friendly.

Eco-friendly Packaging

All Unwonted items are shipped in Biodegradable, degrable or compostable mailing bags and our products are packed in Biodegradable ziplock bags.   These bags are all designed with additives which break down the material back into the Earth and allowing micro-organisms to fully consume.  This is much more environmentally friendly with bags taking months to degrade, instead of decades or even centuries! 

They are also strong, tear proof and waterproof, so you know your Unwonted gear is safe in transit.  Being light weight and ensuring we choose the correct size packaging for your orders, we help reduce excess use of material...every micro-gram of material counts!

Look out for this Logo on our products for confirmation we are using Biodegradable ziplock bags. 

Check with your local council which bins these can go in.  

 Our compostable shipping mailing bags can put into your home compost or green bins.


Washing and Care for your garments

We also recommend washing your synthetic garments with Guppy bags, which catches micro fibres.  These can be purchased from Amazon or other websites on Google. 

All our products have wash labels from our manufactures recommended instructions.  We advise you to follow these as close as possible to ensure your garments are clean, fresh and long lasting.
