compostable is the new recyclable

The KENT Compost Club offers a circular solution to the growing crisis of clothing waste. We partnered with a regenerative, organic farm in Southern California to divert waste from landfill, repurpose briefs in compost to become nutrient rich soil. Composting offers a grassroots solution that works with nature’s natural recycling process, requiring zero electricity, energy or chemicals.

why compost?

Underwear is one of the most difficult articles of clothing to dispose of – it cannot be donated or resold – and is often tossed in the trash at end of life. This contributes to the estimated 11 million pounds of undergarments sent to landfills daily in the USA. And because 85% of textiles today are made from fossil-fuel based, synthetic (aka plastic) materials like polyester, nylon and spandex, they stay in landfills for 200+ years, emitting methane and carbon dioxide in the process.

the benefits

Improves soil health

Reduces waste streams

Cuts greenhouse gas (methane) emissions from landfills

Lessens erosion 

Conserves water, holding 5-20x its own weight in water

Sequesters carbon from the atmosphere… helping to reverse climate change

"Nature wastes nothing. Nature is always recycling."

Our compost partner is USDA certified organic and focuses on regenerative agriculture - farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle.

The farm organically grows oranges, apples, kale, cabbage, corn, mangoes and more.

creating circular solutions

We believe the future of fashion is circular – regenerative and restorative by nature - where clothes and textiles become a resource rather than waste.

We aim to do more good than less bad, to create a positive impact rather than just reducing impact. The Compost Club completely reimagines the fashion cycle in move to a new circular economy that restores our planet, one brief at a time.

Our 100% plant-based designs return old briefs back to earth as a resource when composted or planted, feeding the soil and growing new plants (or future pants). It’s a new kind of circular system designed from the earth and back again.
