Can a t-shirt really change the world? Our upcycled t-shirts can certainly help. It takes over 400 gallons of water to produce a single cotton tee. At Looptworks, we make our t-shirts from excess materials rescued from the apparel industry. By upcycling our shirts from repurposed excess fabrics versus virgin materials, we help conserve water and avoid carbon emissions — plus help divert quality materials from landfills.
