Yoga Girl in collaboration with Another Textile Company
Our collaboration with Another Textile Company persistently brings two words to mind – sustainability and transparency. These are our shared cornerstone values for the environment, for the people working in textile production, and for the end consumer.
An estimated 10 billion plastic bottles are thrown away every single week worldwide, and too many of those cast away bottles end up in our oceans. We have to change this.
With Another Textile Company, we discovered a completely ground-breaking method: using fabrics made from recycled polyester (PET bottles) and Fair Trade Certified, organic, recycled cotton waste from previous productions. The result: t-shirts made completely from recycled fibers and certified by the GRS Global Recycled Standard.
Purpose, People, Planet
Our environmental impact while producing our t-shirts is minimal because we only use recycled materials. We save huge amounts of water and the carbon dioxide emissions are reduced to a minimum.
The common t-shirt manufacturing process requires 530 gallons (2,000 liters) of water, from the cotton plant to the complete garment, and it uses conventionally grown cotton. Through Another Textile Company’s method with recycled material, the water consumption for each of our t-shirts drops to only half a gallon (2 liters). This makes our recycled t-shirts 99.9% more water efficient!
Another Textile Company’s factory only uses green energy and is self-sufficient through its own wind-powered plants.
We pay more per item than the factory’s quoted prices, creating a surplus that goes directly to the employees and filling the gap between minimum wages and living wages.
We are really proud of our 1st edition recycled Yoga Girl® t-shirts and we hope that you will love them too. We have two models, SUN that is a more classic t-shirt and MOON that is a more narrow model with a wider neck. Both models fit a Yoga Girl®, no matter gender or size. Find all our first edition t-shirts in our shop!
We'd love to see you wearing yours, use the hashtag #iamayogagirl if you post them on social media or send an email to email@example.com if you will let us use your picture in our channels.
After more than 20 years in the textile industry. We decided to break the pattern and become “another”.
Because we believe there is another way, another tomorrow, and another future ahead.
Do you have a product or collection and looking to make it sustainable? We will help you with design, sourcing, and production.
To us, another is not one more of the same old kind. It is a whole other company, with a whole different view. One that marches to its own drum and tells another story.
”We aim for the highest quality, not only in our choice of fabrics but also in our commitment to a sustainable development and good working conditions”
By offering production in Fairtrade-certified cotton we want our products to be a good deal for us and our customers as well as for our suppliers.
By working as closely to our customers and partners as possible, we can ensure the right decisions throughout the purchasing process and supply chain.
We truly believe that everybody can contribute to a better future and that one good thing leads to another.
