How goes it Good People?
Thank you for clicking around our website. We are Solution: A clothing company based out of Mt Hood Oregon, that strives to get back to the roots of clothing innovation. We are dedicated to the idea that Mother Earth and Father Sun are characters that we need to keep around. We humans exist as unique guests upon this amazing Earth for an adventure we call "Life". And during this adventure, we believe it is best to try to help rather than harm. So with regards to our clothing, which is designed with function as our primary concern, we strive to create a product with as much consideration for the environment as we have for our supporters and ourselves. Currently, we are using recycled fleece material. 50% recycled fleece garments, and 50% recycled soda pop bottles. This is crucial for us because plastic bottles have become such a terrible environmental problem. And with fleece playing such a huge role in wilderness sports, the option of creating garments out of "garbage" is something that we feel good about. In the future we will utilize fabrics made from all natural textiles such as Hemp, Wool, Cocona (made from coconut husks) etc. Utilizing natural and recycled textiles is a concern for us because the overall consumption of "things" in industrial nations is astronomical. We believe that warmth, breathability, longevity and style of clothing can be met and exceeded with natural fibers, resulting in less damage to the environment and ourselves. Each line of our Outerwear is unique. Once we run out of a color or style, its gone. Only to be replaced by the next evolution of garments and accessories.
With regards to our Co2 footprint, we source material domestically (within the USA), and pay for labor locally (Oregon), so we use less resources to make our stuff. We at Solution realize the unemployment rate is beyond what should be acceptable for a "civilized society" such as ours, and we feel good about employing talented people in Oregon to produce our clothing. Yeah, we are just a clothing company, but just like you we have infinite potential.
Thanks for your interest, have a great day!
