Superdry’s Summer Shirt Gets a Sustainable Twist

When it comes to clothing, fast fashion is on the way out. As brands move towards a more sustainable economy, the need to be clean, green and still seen is more important than ever. Thankfully, Superdry is stepping up to the plate. The iconic clothing brand recently launched its new ‘Made for Summer’ collection, which is not only effortlessly stylish but also a proverbial commitment to sustainability.

In addition to the new line of leather-look, vegan, waxed cotton jackets, Superdry has dropped a line of tops and bottoms made from eco-friendly fabrics such as EcoVero, which is derived from certified renewable wood sources by way of an eco-responsible production process. Best of all, the campaign confirms Superdry’s wider vision to transition to 100% organic cotton, as evidenced by the easy, breezy Linen Cotton Long Sleeve Shirt. Light and airy, the summer special is perfect for those weekends at home, and better yet, it comes with the added benefit of being good for the environment. Considering Superdry plans to convert 100% of packaging to recyclable, and run 100% of the global-owned store network on renewable energy sources by 2030, summer is looking good.
