Sustainability has become a key issue in many of our lives. We could all say that we are mindful of the environment, and want to live in a way that not only fulfils our needs and desires, but also isn't damaging to our planet.
It's something we also bear in mind here at Movement, how can we offer great products and deliver them is a sustainable way?
We are increasing our sustainable brands, but here are some that we stock that have eco-friendly and sustainability at the centre of their designs.

What does 100% organic cotton solve?
Water – Worldwide, most organic cotton is grown on rain-fed farms – meaning there is no irrigation. The soil is healthy and holds water 50% better than conventional soil. The water usage in growing organic cotton is 91% lower than that of conventional cotton.
Pesticides and fertilisers – It takes 400 grams of raw cotton to make one T-shirt. One conventional T-shirt contains 165 grams of pesticides and fertilisers. Garments produced with organic cotton contain zero pesticides and fertilisers and have a positive impact on almost 220.000 farmers, their families and your skin. CO₂ – Growing organic cotton saves 46% of CO₂ compared to conventional cotton.
Other sustainable materials
Linen – Linen is a natural textile made from the fibres of the flax plant. Garments have been made from linen for thousands of years and it is one of the oldest fibres used for textile production. Linen is well-known for its strength, absorption and coolness to the touch. Organic linen is grown without any synthetic fertilisers.
Tencel – Tencel is extracted from the raw material of wood. Fibre production is extremely eco-friendly as the wood comes from forest plantations that practice sustainability.
Wool – Most of the wool KnowledgeCotton Apparel uses is certified organic. It is 100% pure new wool from merino sheep. The wool we use is mainly from South America and mulesing-free. We call this wool ‘happy sheep wool’ as it is produced with animal welfare and the biodiversity of land in mind.
No leather – We chose to substitute all leather trims with microfibres in respect for animal kingdom and won’t use any leather products in the future. Besides that, synthetic leather has only 1/3 environmental impact of cow leather.
The Organic Company
They produce a range of sustainable products, including these gorgeous food bags.
These are just some of our sustainable brands with more being added all the time. As we mentioned earlier, we at Movement also want to do our bit, so we try to reuse cardboard boxes for our online orders - we call it Box Recycle. Additionally, the protective packaging that we use, bubblewrap and foam buds are all biodegradable.
