WHERE WE CAME FROM
It All Started in a San Diego Garage
When we founded Fresh Clean Tees, sustainability wasn’t built into our business plan. Our primary focus was getting our concept off the ground. Over the years, through hard work and good fortune, our wild idea grew into a notable clothing brand. We're still based in gorgeous San Diego, which allows our family and employees to enjoy the ocean’s beauty and bounty. Now, it's time for Fresh Clean Tees to start giving back in a big way.
Fashion & Sustainability
For us to be the clothing brand we want to be, Fresh Clean Tees needs to be part of the solution instead of the problem — and it’s a big problem. The fashion industry is one of the world’s largest polluters, and it doesn’t help that global clothing production has doubled since 2000.
The Big Problem
