Textiles take up nearly 8% of our country’s landfills and almost all of them take hundreds of years to de-compose.
These fun and funky, mismatched socks from Solmate Socks are made from t-shirt factory remnants that would normally go into a landfill. Solmate Socks grinds them down and re-spins them into their own yarns. They are a zero-waste company, meaning every last scrap is turned into something useful.
They offer carbon offsets for shipping and match every dollar. And Solmate has been donating socks for the past 17 years to various charity groups across the US, including family services organizations, refugee centers and homeless shelters.
