Introducing Continental Clothing

At My Needs Are Simple, we're excited to introduce you to one of our valued partners in the world of sustainable fashion – Continental Clothing. As a leading supplier of eco-friendly and ethically crafted apparel products and accessories, Continental Clothing has been making waves in the fashion industry for over two decades. In this blog post, we'll take you on a journey through their remarkable story and their unwavering commitment to sustainability.

A Pioneer in Ethical and Sustainable Fashion

Continental Clothing's journey began in 1998 in London, UK, where they started as a B2B wholesaler and distributor specializing in ready-to-print T-shirts, sweatshirts, and childrenswear. Fast forward 25 years, and they have not only become a cornerstone of the fashion industry but also a pioneer in the evolution of ethical and sustainable fashion.

Four Unique Ethical Apparel Brands

One of the standout features of Continental Clothing is their dedication to ethical consumer apparel. They have developed four distinctive brands, each reflecting their commitment to sustainability:

  1. Continental®: Known for superior quality and style, Continental® offers a range of ready-to-print blank apparel products.

  2. EarthPositive®: This brand features 100% certified organic cotton apparel, setting the standard for eco-conscious fashion.

  3. Salvage®: Salvage® products incorporate recycled organic cotton blended with recycled polyester, reducing the environmental impact of fashion.

  4. Fair Share™: With Fair Share™, Continental Clothing ensures that fairness and social responsibility are woven into every garment they produce.

Social Responsibility at Its Core

At the heart of Continental Clothing's mission is a strong commitment to social responsibility. They believe that every individual has the right to a safe and healthy work environment, fair wages, and freedom from discrimination. As members of the Fair Wear Foundation since 2006, Continental Clothing actively supports and promotes these principles. Their manufacturing facilities undergo regular audits to ensure social compliance, aligning with international labor standards.

Sustainability Throughout the Supply Chain

Continental Clothing recognizes the environmental challenges posed by the fashion industry. From the sourcing of raw materials to manufacturing processes, they take significant steps to minimize their ecological footprint. Their materials include low-impact cotton, Tencel® Lyocell, bamboo, EcoVero viscose, and recycled polyester. Certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard, Organic Content Standard, and the Global Recycled Standard, Continental Clothing ensures the sustainability of their products from start to finish.

Reducing the Carbon Footprint

In a groundbreaking move, Continental Clothing became the first company worldwide to calculate the carbon footprint and apply the Carbon Reduction Label to textile products. Their EarthPositive® line boasts a 90% reduced carbon footprint, achieved through innovative product design, low-impact agriculture, and renewable energy usage. By choosing EarthPositive®, you're not just wearing a garment; you're making a statement for a more sustainable planet.
