The recycled polyester used in the Motil Short is crafted from a blend of pre-consumer textile waste and post-consumer PET bottles. Using recycled polyester fibers in our collection helps to lessen our dependence on petroleum products, keep waste out of the landfills, lessen the environmental footprint caused from conventional polyester processing, and create long-lasting garments that would normally end up in the landfill.


The Motil Pant's cotton content is from certified 100% organically grown cotton, which does not use pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers or defoliants at any point in its growth and development. To understand the impact this makes on a micro and macro scale, we need to take a closer look at the numbers: Currently, 9.4 billion pounds of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are used annually in the US alone. This breaks down to using roughly ⅓ pound of synthetic fertilizers to grow one pound of raw cotton in the US, and it takes just under one pound of raw cotton to make one t-shirt. Research shows that the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers pollute rivers, streams, and air, as well as cause irreparable damage to our most vital resources: water and soil. In a nutshell, we hope the use of organic cotton across all of our garments will reduce, in a small way, the detrimental impact pesticides and fertilizers have on our environment.

While most of our products have robust recycling systems, the recycled polyester fabric used in the Motil Pant is not able to be recycled at this time. Our intention is to have a recycling plan in place for this product and close the loop as soon as possible. Stay tuned.
