Sustainable t-shirts for those on a budget: Our top picks

Sometimes, the word ‘sustainability can make people think of hefty price tags. Ethical and sustainable clothing will always cost a little more, and this is because of the sustainable methods used to make the clothes. It can seem there’s no option for those on a budget, who want to do their bit and shop sustainably. This isn’t the case! There are plenty of ways you can still shop ethically without blowing your budget. It’s more about changing your mindset, and thinking about how you shop, and, of course, where you shop!

Ethical clothing companies will always sell their clothes at a fair price. This is because ethical companies meet trading standards and certifications that protect the livelihoods of people making the products, as well as the environment. The reason you end up paying a little more for sustainable clothing is that it reflects the real cost of the garment when it is made ethically, using eco-friendly methods.

What are sustainable t-shirts?

Sustainable t-shirts have been made using sustainable methods and processes. This means that at every part of the production process, eco-friendly methods are used, and people are treated fairly and looked after.

Sustainable t-shirts are made from sustainable materials, such as organic cotton. This means that no harsh chemicals are used on the crops that grow the cotton and that the plant has been grown completely organically. In addition to the materials being produced organically, the clothing is made in factories offering fair wages and fair conditions for their employees. These are the standards that need to be met for clothing to be sustainable, which results in comfortable, high-quality clothing that has been produced and manufactured to the highest of standards.
