DENVER -- With the apparel industry becoming the second largest polluter in the world, more sustainable clothing brands seem to be launching every day.
But very few of them produce everything from 100% recycled materials, and almost none of them invest in nonprofits to help reduce pollution and clean the planet.
Denver-based Foreland apparel just might be the only clothing company in the world who does both.
"We wanted our environmental efforts to be 100% in all aspects," said company co-founder Danielle Gainan.
"Every Foreland product is made completely from 100% recycled materials including our clothing, accessories, hang tags, stickers, packaging and even our shipping labels."
Not only is everything made strictly from recycled materials, but Foreland said its production process doesn't require new petroleum. That allows the company to use up to 90% less water, 75% less carbon and 70% less energy than the standard apparel industry.
To take it a step further, Foreland then donates a portion of all proceeds back to nonprofits who focus on saving the planet from pollution.
Since its launch, Foreland said it has already donated to nonprofit organizations including The Ocean Cleanup, The Plastic Pollution Coalition and Friends of the Earth.
"We also wanted to make it simple for anyone to be a good humanitarian and do their part to help the planet from pollution so each and every customer's purchase gives back to nonprofits who help clean the planet and reduce pollution around the world,” said Gainan.
Foreland said it considers itself an outdoor lifestyle brand and offers both men's and women's environmentally conscious apparel. Additionally, Foreland hosts contests to encourage their customers to explore the outdoors, including their current contest, in which they're giving away two free U.S. National Parks annual passes.
With every purchase from Foreland's online store, customers are automatically entered for a chance to win this giveaway.
