EcoOutfitters is an ethical and sustainable school uniform company set up by two mothers driven to improve the standards of school uniforms that our children spend so much time in. It began after their children started school and they realised that most of their school clothes contained chemicals treated with stain resistant, crease resistant Teflon coatings, which can be harmful for their health and the environment.
Children wear their uniform for at least 35 hours a week, so naturally these are the most important items of clothing in their wardrobe. Unfortunately, most of school clothes are made from either a polycotton mix or plain polyester, which is essentially plastic 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 - 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.
