Finding the right sustainable and ethical t-shirts for men can be hard since they’re scattered across lots of different little shops. Plus, are they actually as eco-friendly as the company claims on their greenwashed website or do they hide a shady supply chain?

Finding the perfect ethical t-shirts for eco-conscious gentlemen like you has never been easier, but let’s start with our absolute favourites!
