Trash Collection

WHY YOUR WHITE TEE IS REALLY GREEN

EVERYBODY.WORLD has created entirely new fabrics—from trash. These 100% Recycled Cotton jersey and fleece garments are made from reclaimed US-grown cotton manufacturing waste then knit, cut, sewn and dyed in Los Angeles. They're the first of their kind on spaceship Earth. 

Trash Collection

TO MAKE THE TRASH TEE, EVERYBODY.WORLD COLLECTS THE WASTE FIBERS USUALLY THROWN AWAY AND PROCESSES THEM IN A BRAND NEW WAY.

This huge combing machine moves back and forth to “open” the cotton.

NEXT, THE COTTON BLASTS AROUND IN A WIND TUNNEL TO REMOVE DEBRIS.

AFTER THAT IT'S BLENDED IN WHAT LOOKS LIKE A SNOW GLOBE TO HARMONIZE THE COTTON.

USING AIR FORCE, THE COTTON IS SLAMMED HARD TO BEAT OUT ANY REMAINING DIRT.

THEN THE “CARDING” PROCESS TURNS SHEETS OF COTTON AIR INTO LARGE ROPES OF COTTON.

THESE LONG COTTON ROPES ARE THEN SPUN INTO YARN.

WE TAKE THE WASTE FROM EACH OF THESE STEPS AND PUT THEM ALL THROUGH THE SAME PROCESS. THAT YARN BECOMES THE TRASH TEE!
