Our team of entrepreneurs and material scientists knew that there had to be a better way to bridge the gap between performance and sustainability by using natural resources.
breakdown plants to the point where they're so small we can extract nano-sized particles. We combine these particles with solvents and the resulting solution is our permanent replacement for plastic within textiles.
We utilize plants that absorb CO2 quickly from the atmosphere & store it as food.
So essentially the more garments we make the more CO2 we are taking and storing within our fabrics.
Our textile technology allows us to transform specific types of cellulose rich plants into functional fabrics like never before. At Soarce, we have made a strong commitment to incorporate ZERO plastics in our final products without sacrificing on the performance feature we all love in our workout gear.
Did you know to make 100 cotton t-shirts, you need 12 swimming pools of water? Just because they are natural doesn't mean it's sustainable. At Soarce, our fabric will be made of plant waste to reduce water consumption by over 85% or regenerative crops that use less water, resources, and don't damage the soil it was grown on.
It's time to stop greenwashing and have a concrete plan for the future. By using renewable resources such as fast growing plants and agricultural waste, we will offset the energy and emissions that would be used to melt down plastic while removing carbon during their growth cycles. We have an ambitious mission but we are dedicated to helping fight climate change at the source.
Agricultural streams offer immense potential as a sustainable source of cellulose-rich plants to be regenerated into fibers. We are looking for native plants that are fast growing and low maintenance such as hemp to sequester carbon at a fast rate.
Alternatively, by processing certain plant residues we could help reduce food waste, lower emissions created from field burning, and give farmers additional revenue streams.
