GreenStory conducted a comparative life-cycle analysis of our products from raw material acquisition to fiber and fabric processing to finished goods and beyond. The study compared the impact of our eco-manufacturing process against comparative conventional methods.The cradle-to-gate relevant life-stages were analyzed to measure the estimated net impact savings across GHG (Green House Gas) emissions and energy use

For example, one synthetic micro-fiber robe or towel releases 1900 microplastic fibers into the water system.
Natural Cotton Fibers are good for you and our planet, micro fibers not so much.
We use Only 100% natural fibers, no harmful micro-fibers
100% cotton towels and linens
are a natural alternative that supports our global delicate ecosystem, keeping our water and food chains safer.
Our boxes and tape are manufactured from recycled paper. The box tape is created from a flour and water compound instead of chemical glue, and biodegradable plastic bags are used to pack our towels, further diminishing impact on the environment.
No glue is used in our production.
NATURAL LOOMING PROCESS
When setting up the looms, we only use flour and water to fortify and strengthen the cotton strands, which washes out naturally in the dying process.
No glue is used in our production.
Only Oeko-Tex certified optical dye solutions with a minimal amount of peroxide are used, rather than the common industry standard, which relies on bleach.
We begin with the finest and most sustainably farmed cotton, in partnership with the BETTER COTTON INITIATIVE (BCI).
Cotton yarn is quality graded from 0 – 7. We only use cotton graded 5.5 and higher, which ensures longer, stronger fibers that yield greater absorbency.
Our water purification plant uses live bacteria to break down the dye pigment—no chemicals are used. Once the bacteria has accomplished the task, it is stored for ten years and then returned to the soil as fertilizer. The waters are returned to the river cleaner than when captured.
