The Ethical Menswear Directory
We've created an Ethical Menswear Directory complete with links to some of the most innovative, ethical and sustainable clothing brands out there — from boardshorts made using recycled ocean plastic, to Converse style trainers made of natural rubber.
We created our ethical clothing brand, Born Hybrid, as we struggled to find eco friendly t-shirts that didn’t break the bank. There are some great eco companies out there, but it sometimes feels like a mission to track them down. To take the hassle out of this, and to share the eco love, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite sustainable clothing brands and outlets. If you know of or run an eco business that you think more people need to know about, then drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can add you to the list!
