Our Ethical Promise

We are committed to responsible production processes that look after the environment and the people who make our organic cotton t-shirts. 

Our t-shirts are GOTS certified. This ensures independent verification that we have met strict quality, environmental and social standards. GOTS certification means working to Fairtrade conditions set by the International Labour Organisation.

Starting in the cotton fields of Turkey click the dots on the map to read more about our t-shirts.

To offset working with our Danish partner Green Cotton, we purchase carbon credits to help balance our environmental impact. These credits contribute to the creation of UK woodland and ecology projects. These will help sequester greenhouse gases from the atmosphere in years to come. Read more here.


Corlu, Turkey

Our exclusive organic cotton is grown, hand picked, ginned, spun, and knitted into fabric by Sanko. Our cotton is GOTS [Global Organic Textile Standard] certified which requires strict environmental and social responsibility from seed to delivery www.global-standard.org.

Lviv, Ukraine

When our cotton reaches Ukraine, our Danish partner Green Cotton cut and stitch our t-shirts in their own factory. Everything is in-house to ensure your t-shirt has been made to the strictest environmentally friendly, pollutant free standards. Green Cotton operates to ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management) standards. Green Cotton is GOTS verified, Oeko-Tex 100 and EU eco label approved.

Ikast, Denmark

Once our t-shirts have been constructed in Ukraine they are shipped to Denmark along with Green Cottons' own products, to be given the Green Cotton final seal of approval. Our t-shirts are warehoused in their central facility ready for shipping to the UK. This economy of scale helps reduce transportation costs and also environmental impact.

North Shields, England

After reaching the UK our t-shirts are pressed, wrapped and posted out to you by our White T-shirt Co team. All our packaging is biodegradable & locally sourced from FSC licensed suppliers, who are ISO 14001 & ISO 9001 approved for their environmental practices.
