As we continue to work towards a greener future, it’s become abundantly clear that we need to make some changes if our efforts at sustainability are going to succeed. Leading the charge in the fashion industry is Sheep Inc., an eco-conscious knitwear label that strives to reconnect people with the source of their clothing.

For its latest release, Sheep Inc. has crafted a hoodie that’s not just neutral in its carbon footprint but negative. So, where other garments might require offsetting in order to balance out the carbon dioxide produced throughout the manufacturing process, the 005 actually helps remove CO2 from the atmosphere as it’s being made. In practice, this is because Sheep Inc. relies on a unique Eternity X-Care Merino wool sourced from regenerative farms in New Zealand and an innovative solar-powered Wholegarment knit process in Portugal. Considering that the hoodie also comes with a removable NFC tag to track the sheep from which it’s sourced and that 5% of the proceeds go towards funding biodiversity projects, the 005 sweater makes for a new standard in sustainable fashion. You can buy it now for $184.
