When you are looking for more sustainable fashion, it may go beyond natural resources like cotton. Sustainability may include human resources, i.e. the people who make the clothing. Read my review of a sustainable ONNO T-shirt, and the company’s way to produce more sustainable fashion.

- Wrapping Up My Review of a Sustainable ONNO T-shirt
Disclosure: Ad. The T-shirt is a sample of my choice from ONNO. The post is not endorsed by ONNO. I wrote it myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.
Sustainable ONNO T-shirt
Today I want to introduce you to ONNO T-shirts. They sent me the T-shirt shown in the OOTD in the photos below for review. I picked moss green as this color would be a great addition to my wardrobe. Well, I also associate sustainable with green. And this shirt is made from sustainable material.
Environmentally Friendly Fashion
Every environment-conscious person prefers bamboo, hemp and organic cotton fabric like the material of like this ONNO T-shirt. This love is due to the facts that bamboo is the fasted growing plant on Earth, and consumes not much water. It grows in many climate regions. It is pest-resistant, and keeps the topsoil in great conditions. More on bamboo fiber.
Hemp is quite similar. More on hemp textiles.
Did you know that about 25% of the World’s pesticides serve to grow regular cotton?
Family-friendly Manufacturing Concept
ONNO T-shirts adopted how textile manufacturing is done in Germany. This means the manufacturing where the people live. In this case, the T-shirts are cut and sewn in two villages close to Tai’an, China. Employees have an eight hour day, and can go home for lunch to have an hour quality time with their family. Moreover, adults produce these T-shirts, i.e. no kid-slave work.
Craftsmanship and Fit
The ONNO T-shirt shown in the OOTD is a size S. In my opinion, it has a perfect fit as it hugs my body in the right places. To get this look I ordered it a size up. According to their size chart, I would be at the upper end of a size XS. This means when you like to wear your T-shirts tight, i.e. body conscious, it seems best to order your true size according to their size chart.
The sewing looks accurate, and the fabric is super soft, i.e. softer than a T-shirt from regular cotton. It is so soft, you want to sleep in it! <3
Product Palette for All Sizes
ONNO T-shirts come in size XXS to XXL for women and XS to 3XL for men. Their size chart uses flat measurements. Thus, you will have to double the measures to obtain your breast circumference in inches. Multiple that number by 2.54 to get the measure in centimeters.
Their T-shirts come in up to 18 different colors for short sleeves and seven colors for long sleeves. The color’s name of the T-shirt in the OOTD is moos green. ONNO also offers organic canvas totes.
The ONNO T-shirt shown in the OOTD costs $29. If you wear your T-shirts only for one year every 2 weeks, your cost-per-wear will be about $1.12. This cost is very acceptable for a better quality T-shirt, in general, and a great deal for this soft and nicely crafted T-shirt. Thumbs up for the ONNO T-shirt!
