Best Initiative goes to Earth Positive range of apparel
May '11
The Earth Positive range was named Best Initiative by a Small or Medium Size Business at the Climate Week Awards on March 21st. The awards were judged by a panel including author Ian McEwan, Lord Nicholas Stern (author of the Stern report), former Irish President Mary Robinson, eco-adventurer David de Rothschild and Tim Smit, founder of the Eden project.

Mariusz Stochaj, Head of Products at Continental Clothing, commented: “We are very excited to receive the nomination. Our low-carbon EarthPositive T-shirts have been immensely popular, showing not only that it is possible to make clothes cleanly and responsibly, but also that there is a growing demand for low-carbon, sustainable products”.

Continental Clothing have been designing and manufacturing clothing since 1994 and their focus has been on creating high quality, expertly style garments for markets such as music merchandise, fashion, corporate promotions and athletics. They have been committed to environmentally sustainable and ethical production methods and actively support the growth and expansion of organic cotton farming - their Earth Positive range of apparel is 100% organic with a 90% reduced carbon footprint.

Cottonprint, one of the UK's leading suppliers of quality leisurewear, have recently added a full range of products by Continental Clothing, including EarthPositive, to their catalogue and can be seen online. Owner Richard Mather said “We are very pleased to be able to promote Continental Clothing's full range alongside the other quality brands we have on offer. They create high quality, expertly styled garments and their commitment to environmentally sustainable and ethical production methods is exactly what we want to promote here at Cottonprint”.

Cottonprint are based in South Manchester and supply a range of leisurewear, school wear and workwear to clients throughout Europe. They offer a low-cost T-shirt printing and polo shirt embroidery service with short lead times.
