Here at Ethical Made Easy, we’re just a bunch of gals who love the simple things in life. We love boozy brunches (not on work days, of course), we love when our favourite chocolate goes on sale, and we love Emma Watson’s passion for ethical fashion. What we love above all of these things, though, is when we come across a brand that is more transparent than our reusable glass water bottles. Enter The Common Good Company stage right.

TCGCo values planet, people, and production above all else, and this is obvious in their practices and the way in which they produce their garments. Not only are their pieces designed in Melbourne and ethically-made in India, but in order to minimise the use of virgin materials, wastage, and excessive water use, all TGCCo garments are made with recycled pre-consumer textile waste and recycled polyester.

The team at TCGCo gets that “if it’s not ethically-made, it’s not sustainable”, which is why the factory in which they manufacture their garments adheres to the regulations of multiple certifications, including Fairtrade, Social Accountability International, and Sedex. They also comply with The United Nations Global Compact measures and The International Labour Organisation standards, have integrated internal policies including Gender Responsive Workplace and Zero Waste Initiative, and their raw materials meet the criteria for the Global Recycled Standard.  

TCGCo’s commitment to ethics and sustainability is not just commendable but completely inspiring, and their mission has seeped into every single crevice of their business. The packaging you’ll receive your TCGCo goodies in is reusable and compostable; they use less carbon intensive modes of transportation with their shipping; their office is powered by Australia’s greenest power company; and they even use Who Gives A Crap toilet paper when they… you know…

All in all, The Common Good Company is just that: an inherently good company run by even better people. Just to impress you that little bit more, there is even a range of TCGCo t-shirts that, when sold, help fund Melbourne-based not for profit Food For Change. So, if you need an epic new basic tee and want to do some good when purchasing it, head on over to TCGCo and see how much of an impact just one t-shirt can have.

Meet Ben Heenan, the co-founder of the common, good company, The Common Good Company.
“By using recycled polyester, it means that the raw material comes from single-use objects like Plastic Water Bottles (4.5 bottles per t-shirt). This reduces the amount of plastic ending up in landfills and the oceans”.
