Clean Apparel – Making The Most Sustainable T-Shirt on the Planet
It’s time to send a message. The apparel industry is the second most polluting industry, second only to oil. But there are solutions to this problem, and it starts with being conscious of the products you purchase. To demonstrate how apparel can be long lasting, look amazing, and still be completely sustainable, we decided to make the Clean Tee. When you purchase this tee, you are sending a message to the apparel industry, demanding eco-friendly, ethically manufactured products.
We partnered with Recover Textiles to make the most sustainable t-shirt on the planet. Here’s how it works:
Compared to a conventional T-shirt:

It’s time to send a message!
We’ve partnered with other brands creating sustainable products to bring you the following packages:
What will the funds be used for?
Initial funds will help cover the cost of manufacturing our first run of Clean Tee’s using Recover textiles. We’ve set some high stretch goals. These are numbers we need to hit in order to inspire other brands to make the switch to Recover.
- Hitting $100,000 is a clear indication of the demand for sustainable apparel. This represents $1 million in revenue a year, which is a good start for any small business. Raising this amount of money will allow us to educate the public on the need for sustainable apparel.
- Reaching $500,000 proves the market and will make the argument for larger brands to switch to Recover. If we can reach this goal, we’ve accomplished what we set out to do. Raising this amount of money will allow us to expand the Clean Apparel line and educate the public on the need for sustainable apparel.
Collectively, we can reach these goals and demonstrate the demand for Clean Apparel. Share the campaign on Facebook or Twitter, pick up an extra shirt for a friend. Tell your favorite local shop about these great new shirts. Together we can change the apparel industry.
Risks and challenges
This will be Nomadix second Kickstarter campaign. We are familiar with the process and have taken steps to insure smooth delivery of all purchased products.
At the end of the campaign we will request all product selections. Please provide this information in a timely manner. The production of the Clean Tee is dependent upon obtaining this information. Once we have this information we will begin production of the material. Once the material is knit, we will move into sewing, from sewing to printing. The whole process is scheduled to take roughly 8 weeks from the time we begin knitting the fabric.
After all of the shirts have been produced we will begin packing for fulfillment.
We offer both domestic and international shipping. For international backers, we will be fulfilling your purchases using the United States Postal Service. After leaving the U.S. your package will be transferred to your local carrier for delivery. Some international carriers do not provide tracking. Packages will be marked as gifts and assigned the lowest possible value.
