Earth Overshoot Day


There can be only one of this style, possibly two, but that's a good thing, because our planet can't keep up with our mass-produced consumption habits.

According to Global Footprint Network, humanity’s annual rate of resource consumption is currently far beyond the planet’s ability to sustainably regenerate itself. In fact, "Earth Overshoot Day" marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. In 2021, it falls on July 29th.

The further back we can push that date, the better for all of us. That's why from day 1, I've been designing DeLaunay using sustainable practices, not as the exception but as the rule. One such practice: We always feature a large quantity of "deadstock" fabrics, supplemented by existing stocks of responsibly-milled textiles and finished with cutting-floor scraps.

So back to this T-Neck Top: It's cut from a yarn-dyed organic hemp/cotton jersey in a beautiful green/grey "Storm" color. It's perfect for mountain getaways or chilly coastal mornings. The fabric is discontinued but we purchased a very small quantity of the remnants and cut the Top in size Medium. If you need a different size, kindly message us here or via our website and we'll see if we have enough yardage for your order.
