Third Eye Threads is raising the vibration of the planet.
Conscious designs and a commitment to the environment are part of our mission.
We have earth day every day at Third Eye Threads. It's part of our desire to raise the vibration of the planet with our energy whenever possible.

We used local materials to build our production facility, including recycled pallets in the foundation of our Eco-dome, and we use as much reclaimed wood and materials as we can.

Third Eye Threads is unique in owning our own printing technology. We wanted to invest in the most eco-friendly printing process on the planet. We have been using high quality, non-toxic, environmentally safe ink that creates zero waste. Typical screen print facilities have many screens to clean, which requires caustic chemicals. At Third Eye Threads our printing is done digitally. We recycle 100% of the paper used for printing.

We have been using local producers to make our activewear and our most popular shirt fabrics to reduce our carbon footprint.
Recycled water bottle yoga pants have become a staple of the activewear industry. We have expanded upon this idea by incorporating items such as recycled x-ray film, recycled five gallon water jugs and water bottles, upcycled cotton and soy/bamboo.

Customers are always amazed at how soft these fabrics are. They print amazingly well and look fantastic!
We have also eliminated sew-in tags.

Our hang tags are printed on paper made from 100% post-consumer recycled fiber, using a waterless printing technology.




In the past, we have planted vegetables around our production facility to feed our staff and community. We have used recycled billboards to make covers for our eco-friendly geodesic production facility.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

REUSE

At Third Eye Threads, we love to upcycle material that was originally headed to a land fill. We do this by partnering with factories that can use technology and hard work to make amazingly soft fabric from recyled materials.

Since 2008 our packages have shipped in recycled boxes or a shipping envelope
incorporating recycled plastic. Thank you Starbucks and Subway for all the boxes!

Over the years we have recycled hundreds, if not thousands, of boxes. Roughly 40% of trash
created everyday in the United States is packaging. At Third Eye Threads we
recycle everything that we can. Less than 2% of the total waste stream in the United States is recycled.


RECYCLE
Our printing process is called sublimation. We use heat to bind eco-friendly ink
to polyester fiber using a digital printing process. Whenever possible we use recycled polyester from water bottles. We take this
trash and turn it into fabulous fibers. We also use recycled cotton in some of
our garments. Some of our garments have no added dye.
Of the garbage Americans throw out, half could be recycled, which is enough to
fill a football stadium from top to bottom everyday.

REDUCE

One of the #1 ways you can reduce waste and your carbon footprint is to hang
dry your clothes. They will last longer, pill less, and you will be lowering your
carbon foot print. (Please go to our website for an easy drying rack solution.)
You will be reducing, reusing, and recycling all at once!

What is a Triple R?

Some ideas:
• Before buying something new, look on Craigslist for the same item slightly used.
You save money and you reduce, reuse, and recycle.
• Try giving an item away for free on Craigslist in the free stuff section.
• Start composting. This is an awesome Triple R and it's great for your garden. (All you need to do is plant the seeds.)
Please share your Three R ideas on our Facebook page!

Labyrinth on Gray Recycled Water Bottle and Organic Cotton Crew Labyrinth on Gray Recycled Water Bottle and Organic Cotton Crew Neck

Labyrinths are mazes often used for meditative contemplation in the modern era. A labyrinth can be used as a tool for knowledge and illumination. They are a perfect place to practice walking meditation. The majority of modern day retreat centers have a labyrinth. The first labyrinth comes from Greek mythology, which was created to hold the Minotaur.

The Chartres Labyrinth was created in the 13th century (c.1201-
1205) It is in the floor of a working French Cathedral, and its origins are pretty mysterious.

Om Lotus on Purple Recycled Water Bottle and Organic Cotton Crew Om Lotus on Purple Recycled Water Bottle and Organic Cotton Crew Neck

The Indian Lotus flower symbolizes enlightenment, divinity, fertility, wealth, and knowledge. Many Indian deities are depicted sitting on a fully blossomed lotus flower, or holding a lotus flower.

In Buddhism the lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean.

The lotus pose or Padmasana is one of the most sought after yoga poses. It has been a popular meditative position for thousands of years.

We at Third Eye Threads have finally come up with a lotus worthy of sharing with you. It's detailed and filled with Oms and a Ganesh sprouting from it. The petals are gorgeous and it's surrounded by flowers. This shirt features a black and white version, and we also offer a traditional fuchsia, and a green blue. They are awesome symbols dating back to the Egyptians.

Wear this new design to embody your own enlightenment journey and because it's gorgeous. Lots of great details.
