Every shirt makes an impact

Who They Are

When co-founders and sisters, Hailey and Bree, were little, their mom used to read them “The Name of the Tree.” The story is about animals on the verge of starvation who come across the very last tree, named Ungalli. The tree has fruit at the top, but none of the animals can reach it alone. The animals ultimately have to learn to work together for the greater good.

After learning about the negative impact that clothing companies have on our planet, the sisters were driven to get involved. They started this company based around the idea that it takes a team to create positive change. By supporting charities through their purchases, they get others involved in making a difference. The name Ungalli keeps them true to this mission of working together to reach a common goal.

Why We Like Them

Ungalli is committed to changing the way that people think about clothing. They’ve seen first hand how the creation of one item can affect numerous people, so they believe that every purchase makes a difference. Ungalli uses recycled materials in their clothing, and they emphasize ethical production for all of their products by providing workers with fair wages as well as safe, respectful working conditions in Canada.

Ungalli partners with the sustainable Canadian startup Green Story in order to analyze the impact that their products have compared to their traditional counterparts. One Ungalli recycled t-shirt saves about ten plastic bottles from entering landfills, and every Ungalli tee saves 2,695 liters of water! Also, thanks to Ungalli’s small production radius, each shirt they make saves approximately half of a gallon of petroleum and reduces carbon dioxide output by 26 pounds.

Many Ungalli products also work to support different charities, from their charity tees to their gemstone bracelets. Their “Rescued is my Favorite Breed” shirts not only bring awareness to the importance of adopting pets, but it also donates $1 per shirt sold to New Hope Dog Rescue! Another of our favorites, “Bee The Change,” donates funds towards the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Also, by partnering with Domo Beads, they can feed 5 children for each one of their gemstone bracelets sold.

We love their commitment to community and their vision that, together, we’re able to promote a healthier future!

Organic cotton production uses zero chemical pesticides and fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Plus, farming methods for organic cotton have been shown to use up to 20% less water than nonorganic production methods. Choosing organic cotton eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!

Recycled cotton is created by salvaging post-industrial and post-consumer cotton scraps. The scraps are cleaned, sorted, stripped down, and separated into fibers before being respun into new yarn. This yarn can be utilized to make new textiles, while avoiding the energy and resources required to produce virgin fibers. Plus, it extends the valuable life cycle of the material instead of sending it to the landfill.

Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.
