Feel-good, everyday apparel for men and women, made from recycled materials with a built-in loop system.
We have made a truly circular clothing line filled with wardrobe essentials for men and women. This clothing line is part of a closed loop system that makes all of us at A Good Company both happy and proud when we think about it, hopefully you will be too – when you walk around in our truly circular basics collection.
Wondering in vain where your clothes were made and what will happen to them once you’ve worn them out?
Don’t fret – with our circular clothing line, just send them back to us and we’ll make another item of clothing out of them. As an incentive to take part in the loop system, you’ll get a discount on your next T-shirt – that used to be another T-shirt.
A little further down the line, you’ll be walking around in a T-shirt that used to be a LOT of other T-shirts.
And on it goes. Although after about 7 (!) loops, the cotton fibre becomes a little too thin to make clothes from and then the worn-out items find new purpose as cotton stuffing for furniture.
We make sure to make your contribution to the loop as easy as humanly possible.
When the clothes have served their purpose in your wardrobe and you send them back to us or drop them off at one of our circularity hubs, we will recycle the cotton and turn it into new clothing.
In this instance, we’re using the T-shirt made from recycled and organic cotton as an example. The same procedure goes for all the items, you can drop any of your worn-out garments from our circular clothing line with one of our sustainable partner hubs located in major cities across the globe.
Just reach out when you are ready to give back to the loop!
How we use local loop systems to save on shipping
Trust us when we say this has been a long time coming. We have been working on this truly circular clothing line for more than a year, scrutinising suppliers (we looked at over 800 different potential partners) making sure that the production was in line with what we stand for as a sustainable and social impact startup.
We wanted to give you a feel-good clothing line with the essential basics everyone needs in their wardrobe. All items are produced in the very best materials and are made to fit you perfectly while you’re out there doing your thing.
Each piece of clothing comes in several different colours and picking just one is not an easy task. Scroll down if you can’t wait to see the full collection!
All of our items are in the very best quality and are part of our amazing loop system.

All our garments are made using materials that are gentle on the skin and the planet. The materials used are:
Certified organic cotton from Australia – We don’t like toxic chemicals on our bodies nor in connection with the people who harvest the cotton and produce our clothes. Our certified organic cotton ensures the highest standards from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labelling.
In addition it uses way less water than regular cotton. Certificates from GRS (Global Recycle Standard), OCS (Organic content standard) and Certified by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland.
Certified recycled cotton – Have you ever wondered what happens with all the chunks of clothes that don’t make it to the racks? Or how about all the fabric left when cutting a t-shirt?
Well, our supplier turns that into new cotton fabric along with the used t-shirts that get sent back. This is the post-consumer or post-industrial “waste”. With our recycled cotton t-shirts you are wearing waste, but trust us, it’s a good waste. This is certified by the Global Recycled Standard.
Lyocell – a modern, highly sustainable fabric. The TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres we use have received the European Award for the Environment from the European Commission in the category “The Technology Award for Sustainable Development” (2002). This multi-award-winning and highly-sustainable fabric is made out of wood chippings obtained from well-managed forests.
The material is broken down by non-toxic chemicals and turned into easily woven fibres. This process is great since it is less toxic and wasteful and the fabrics are naturally biodegradable. There are several other reasons why we like lyocell and why we decided for it to be the star of our underwear. It has a smooth surface, that is soft, breathable and comfortable. It absorbs moisture, has antibacterial qualities and its perfect for sensitive skins. Certificates from United States Department of Agriculture BioPreferred® designation, Vincotte Biobased and EU Ecolabel.
Bamboo – A material that has been used for centuries. It is not only good for pandas but when made into fabric it becomes as soft as silk. Its main advantage lies in the fact that it’s antibacterial, highly sweat-absorbent and hypoallergenic. If that wasn’t enough it can also be a very sustainable crop. Not really a tree but more a fast-growing grass, it doesn’t need fertiliser and actually self-regenerates from its own roots. This means that you don’t have to replant it! in addition to this, bamboo also has insulating qualities, meaning it can keep your warm during winter and cool during summer. That sounds pretty great if you ask us.
In keeping with the ethos behind the collection, we needed to make sure the designs will wear as long as the clothes themselves.
This meant constructing each garment using timeless design principles that will never go out of fashion with a smart, clean-cut aesthetic that is both versatile and universally flattering.
“The collection is designed to provide the perfect basics — timeless comfortable pieces to wear every day in high-quality materials to last for many years. Rooted in the brand DNA, nature has provided inspiration for colours and materials.
In order to achieve A Good Company’s goal of true sustainability, we spent a lot of time sourcing circular materials that can be recycled into new products after use. I’m particularly excited about the recycled cotton T-shirt program, made from clothing- and textile waste, custom developed to be durable and super comfortable to wear.”
– KRISTIN, Fashion Designer
As everyday essentials, it is important that these clothes can be lived in through life’s journey, so we chose materials that are gentle on both the skin and the environment.
Our blends of organic and recycled cotton, lyocell and bamboo are soft, breathable and durable the designs offer great comfort and moveability for impromptu hugs and games of frisbee.

We strive to make everyday sustainable products at a fair cost for both the customer and the environment. Because we have no middlemen or high street retail locations we are able to offer more sustainable prices than many other brands.
In the spirit of transparency, here is a cost breakdown of an item.
4% of the sales from all our products goes towards A Good Foundation where it is used to support sustainability efforts in communities across the globe. An initiative we are immensely proud of!
We are a Swedish sustainable & social impact startup that began this exciting hike in March last year. Since then, we have been working tirelessly towards our main goal: Inspiring people to end their mindless consumption and instead make conscious decisions.
In just a year and a half, we have made so many friends all over the world. We’re energised by the notion that we are thousands of people pulling together and each and every one of us are amping up our individual climate action – and helping to spread the word.
We donate 4% of the net price of each sale to A Good Foundation, supporting causes that promote sustainability and tackle issues such as climate change.
Our company was founded with the goal to create an ethical, sustainable company and to inspire a movement against mindless consumerism. All of our products are manufactured and sold in the most sustainable way possible.
A Good Foundation was born from a wider conversation about how we as a company can make an impact outside of our normal scope while sharing our values and expertise. The foundation is our way of supporting sustainability efforts in communities around the globe.
100% of the funds donated will go to the initiatives we are supporting. We can make sure of this by excluding all intermediaries and working directly with the people on the ground in each respective community.
Although we are a Swedish sustainable and social impact startup we have a digitally distributed team working from all over the world. A lot of us are located in Stockholm and some in Hong Kong. We also have people in Copenhagen, London, Berlin, Milan, Barcelona, Pretoria, Manilla, Buenos Aires, New York and Kingston.
We think this makes us a better company. More ideas from more places. We all share the goal of helping people transform from mindless consumption into conscious decisions.
Come along on the journey from idea and creation to development and execution!
Join our ever-growing community of people across the globe who all share in our vision to move away from mindless consumption and instead make conscious decisions in our everyday lives.
Thanks so much for supporting us and for reading this far!
We are excited to share this journey with all of you and to hopefully spot you in the street wearing one of our T-shirts.
