Does All This Matter!?
Yes, No Nasties is organic and fair trade and vegan, making only 100% cotton clothes since 2011! But is all this making a difference?
To find out, we commissioned Green Story to do an Impact Report to see how we're doing on certain key metrics of water savings, energy savings, emissions and land preservation. And good news - the report looks great! Our small business is making a big impact! Let's go to the numbers!
Note: these numbers are updated continuously with each product purchase.
Plus, you can see the impact of your purchase on every product page as well as your shopping cart too. Pretty nifty, huh?

OUR BUY-1-GET-1-TREE PROGRAM
We plant trees! Lots of them!
We've started a No Nasties Grove, where we plant a tree for every product you buy from us to help offset some of the carbon footprint of shipping your order.
We also plant a tree for every day of our business existence (retroactively since April 2011) to help offset our company's footprint too.
The trees are planted in a rural area in Odisha (the same place where our organic cotton comes from!) by www.grow-trees.com.
Every product you buy from us = one more tree! Plus, it's complimen-tree!
OUR ZERO PLASTIC PACKAGING
We don't like plastics, and you wont' find ANY in our packaging. All our clothes are individually packed in reusable, organic cotton drawstring bags and then shipped in a recycled cardboard box that is self-sealing and doesn't need any plastic cello tape even.
Lo & behold, Zero Plastic Packaging!
ONCE UPON A DOUG
Besides No Nasties, we've also started and operate a wonderful non-profit initiative called "Once Upon A Doug" that helps women from cotton farming communities in India.
The project upcycles factory waste fabrics and recycles post-consumer clothing to make fashion accessories in a circular fashion economy, while generating secondary income for the women beneficiaries.
This project is very close to our heart - the impact it's making is truly life-changing.
But who's this Doug? See the website to find out.
