EcoOutfitters is a new ethical, sustainable school uniform company set up by two mothers who are passionate about improving the standards of school uniforms that our children spend so much time in. It came about after their children started school and they realised that most of their school clothes contained dangerous chemicals treated with stain resistant, crease resistant Teflon coatings, which can be harmful for health and the environment.
Children wear their uniforms for at least 35 hours a week, so these are the most used items of clothing in their wardrobe. Unfortunately, most school outfits are made from either a polycotton mix or plain polyester, which is essentially plastic - a substance derived directly from crude oil. These common fabrics aren't sweat absorbent, don't allow the skin to breathe, and can trigger rashes and aggravate skin conditions such as eczema.
To address this, EcoOutfitters developed a range of school uniforms which are ethically made, healthy, sustainable, and durable too - all made from 100% pure organic cotton certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards), which guarantees that the whole supply chain from field to final product meets rigorous environmental and social standards.
