People Tree have teamed up with BBC Earth
to create a range of organic cotton t-shirts


The ‘Our Blue Planet’ collection aims to highlight the importance of ocean conservation and will feature some of our oceans most loved and endangered species such as the North Atlantic right whales and sea turtles. If you are looking for the unisex styles please search for the Green Turtle Tee Shirt or the Whale Tee Shirt.


100% Organic: From farm to factory

The collection has been made from 100% GOTS certified Organic Cotton, a highly sustainable fabric thanks to the farmers growing the crop without the use of harmful chemical pesticides, fertilizers and genetically-modified seeds.

This extra soft organic cotton collection is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment with systems in place to replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilisers, and build biologically diverse agriculture.

Working with producer partner Fusion also ensures the dyes used in the printing process are treated through effluent treatment plants, meaning no discharge will be left in the local environment and will have zero impact on the surrounding communities. Third-party certification organisations such as GOTS, verify our organic producers use only approved methods and materials throughout production.

“This is a pivotal moment for our oceans but we have the opportunity to be part of the solution and that is empowering. The Blue Planet effect was phenomenal in changing our relationship with plastic and demonstrated how the choices we make as consumers can shape the future of our planet.”

Melanie, Managing Director of People Tree.


Fair Trade Producer: Creative Handicrafts

Creative Handicrafts is a Fair Trade producer partner and social enterprise, working to empower disadvantaged women of the slum communities of Mumbai, India.

Over the last 30 years, Creative Handicrafts has evolved into a Fair Trade Organisation with a view to changing the world one woman at a time. Since its inception in 1984, Creative Handicrafts has grown into a Fair Trade Organisation that supports the women who make textile-based, Fair Trade Certified products.

The tailors at Creative Handicrafts are a co-operative and the workers are co-owners whom produce a gorgeous range of cotton garments for People Tree.

The focus of Creative Handicrafts is not the women alone but their families too - especially their children. This is reflected in the various projects undertaken. In keeping with its mission, Creative Handicrafts also started a catering service managed by women who could not pick up the skill of sewing. This project is now run under the name 'ASLI FOODS' and is managed independently by the women themselves.
