As of 2020, I have decided to only release tees that are created with sustainably sourced 100% organic cotton, and are manufactured in ethical factories with certified working conditions and environmental management. Organic cotton is better for the soil, as no chemicals are used in production, as opposed to conventional cotton production. Organic cotton is also known to be more durable, so you can expect the tees to last you a long time. In addition, all tees are printed locally in the UK in small batches. One of One Pieces are created individually as an attempt to counter the mass production and fast fashion culture. Each piece is one-off and tells a story.
While there are still areas where the sustainability of Mykes Lab can be improved, such as packaging, I am constantly looking for solutions to make the brand more environmentally friendly.
