The Pure Waste loose fit sweatshirt is your new, eco-friendly go-to.
It is straight cut with a round neck and dropped shoulders. The hem has an interesting detail: a woven label showing the product’s environmental footprint.
The sweatshirt is manufactured from recycled cotton and recycled plastic bottles, and the inside is soft, brushed knitted fabric. We do not dye our products; instead, they get their colours from the cotton waste they are made from. These sweatshirts are available in two stylish colours. They are manufactured responsibly in India.

Please note that the recycling process is not entirely clinical and Pure Waste's products may contain small amounts of different coloured fibers. In dark colours, fibers of different colours do not stand out, but in light colours they are more easily visible. For Pure Waste, these little coloured fibers in the fabric are a feature that reminds them of the uniqueness and origin of their products.
