A Hoodie has to be a Housesitter’s best friend as the weather turns colder.
Whether you are walking the dogs, bringing in the logs or snuggled up in front of the fire, a Hoodie is the perfect item of clothing.
This is not just a Hoodie. This is a Happy Housesitter Hoodie.

100% Combed ORGANIC Cotton

100% Organic Products

EarthPositive® is made in manufacturing facilities powered by green renewable energy, from low-impact raw materials. The carbon footprint of EarthPositive® products has been reduced by some 90% and the calculations were certified under the PAS2050
standard by the Carbon Trust in the UK between 2007-2009.
The vertically integrated garment factory in Tamil Nadu, Southern India, is the primary manufacturing facility of Continental Clothing Company.
The state-of-the-art technology and ultra-modern infrastructure provide the setting for the textile industry’s leading showcase of socially and environmentally responsible production.
The Printing Process
Our fulfilment partner uses ink that is OEKO-TEX certified, which means they contain no chemicals which negatively impact or harm the environment. The inks are water-based and because they use Direct to Garment printing methods, there is less waste than other garment printing methods. They also donate any garments that don’t pass quality control to charity, which as well as helping the local community does reduce the amount of waste disposed of.
The mailing bags used to ship the garmets are made from 100% recycled materials. Plastic consumption is actively being minimised. The use of bubble-wrap/garment bags are necessary to prevent in transit damages, and ensure the product reaches customers in the best condition. However, they are continuously looking at improving this further with more environmentally friendly solutions.
So you know you can buy your Happy Housesitter Hoodie in complete confidence and with peace of mind.
