Under The Same Sun
Under The Same Sun work 100% with low impact textiles such as recycled polyester,
tencel, and organic leather.
Newlife™ premium polyester - made of recycled plastic bottles
Under The Same Sun’s custom made fabric is made of Newlife™ Premium Recycled Polyester. Recycled polyester is made from recycled water bottles and uses 53% less energy and water, and produces 54.6% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than regular polyester. Recycling polyester fabrics decrease environmental impact and less crude oil is taken from earth’s resources – which are already very limited. It also cuts down on energy use, chemical use, waste material and toxic emissions and makes less soil, water and air pollution. Each pair of our leggings recycles approximately 25 plastic bottles.
Under The Same Sun's recycled polyester is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified.
The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. Testing for harmful substances includes:
legally regulated substances
known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals
as well as parameters for health care
In their entirety the requirements clearly exceed existing national legislation.

Safe Printing Technique
Under The Same Sun uses a printing technique that are safe for the environment and the worker. It produces zero waste, compared to screen printing where mass amounts of water is consumed to dye which results in polluted water waste.
Under The Same Sun want to provide fashion for conscious customers, and make it easy for our customers to make the right choice. On every product we have a labelling concept describing how and why the product is eco friendly.
