E.C.O. - Ecological Clothing Options from Swag Connection
Choosing apparel from our E.C.O. line is a choice that supports the efforts to recycle, reuse and utilize more sustainable natural resources. Fabrics made from soybean protein, bamboo fiber, nano bamboo charcoal and recycled polyester are great alternatives that wear well and look great.
Here's a brief description of the earth-friendly fabrics used in the E.C.O. Collection:
RECYCLED POLYESTER: Recycled polyester fabrics feature yarns made from post-consumer products. This helps reduce the amount of waste in landfills, decreases energy consumption and conserves petroleum resources used to produce virgin polyester. Additionally, recycled polyester knits provide high-performance wicking, which absorbs and rapidly disperses moisture to the fabric surface, helping keep the wearer dry and comfortable. Recycled polyester can be made into flat fabrics used for polo shirts and outerwear, or spun into fleece used for jackets, scarves, hats and mittens.
SOYBEAN PROTEIN FIBER: Soybean protein fiber has such an incredibly soft feel that it is often referred to as 'vegetable cashmere'. It's a renewable natural resource that is sustainable, biodegradable and eco-friendly. It's durable, has a flattering drape and washes beautifully, making it a great choice for sport shirts.
NANO BAMBOO CHARCOAL POLYESTER: Nano particles in bamboo are the active ingredients that help absorb odor-causing microbes and moisture, which makes this a perfect material for sport shirts. The fabric has natural ventilation to keep the wearer dry and comfortable, as well as an elegant sheen and soft hand. It's an easy-care material made from a sustainably grown resource that comes in a nice variety of colors.
RAYON MADE FROM BAMBOO: Did you know bamboo is classified botanically as a grass, and can grow up to 36" in one day? It's the fastest growing plant on earth, and a bamboo forest releases 35% more oxygen than an equivalent size forest. Every strand of bamboo fiber boasts a luxurious soft hand, elegant sheen and durability while keeping the wearer cooler than cotton. It's an excellent choice for nice dress shirts that look crisp and wear well.
Altogether there are 25 different styles offered in the E.C.O. collection, all of which can be custom-decorated with your company logo. This is part of our ASH CITY clothing line, which is extremely popular with our corporate clients.
