The 1% for the Planet branded apparel line is printed on econscious' certified Organic cotton. Styles include men's and women's t-shirts, hoodies, hats, totes and aprons.

econscious' President, Dale Denkensohn, helped lead Patagonia's conversion to organic cotton in the 1990's and is amongst the pioneers of organic and sustainable manufacturing. According to Mr. Denkensohn, "Our goal is to be the most trusted source for organic and sustainable blank apparel and accessories." Denkensohn continues, "We've been a partner of 1% since we opened our doors and we are committed to raising awareness about the importance of buying sustainable and organic products."

According to VP of Marketing and Business Development of 1% for the Planet, Melody Grote, "econscious is a valued 1% member company and partner." Grote continues, "We admire econscious for their high-standards in certified sustainable and organic products, their recent Global Organic Trade Standard (GOTS) certification, and general dedication to giving back to the community."
