A company called The Fision is using blockchain to create new apparel. T-shirts, to be precise. The firm creates the shirts and sends them out to potential buyers. The big clincher is that they’re made only from trustfully sourced cotton, and blockchain technology is utilized to ensure that all the shirts sent out are fully transparent and traceable from the beginning.

The Fision Is Using Blockchain

Josh Gelder – CEO of The Fision – explained in a statement:

Our team is comprised of industry veterans and fueled by a desire to communicate the truth about the environmental and societal costs of the current industry. We see the future of fashion being transparent, and we came together to embark on making real industry change that aligns with our mission-driven values. We hope to showcase to consumers and to our peers alike what is possible utilizing tomorrow’s technologies today so that it becomes the industry norm of the future. We aim to inspire change, to share what we uncover, and to encourage all brands to do the same.

The big thing about blockchain is its alleged lack of need for middlemen or third parties to confirm information like transactions. This has been the primary notion behind the technology given that it’s mainly used to power the crypto industry.

However, blockchain can also be used to ensure the traceability of specific elements or goods. People want to make sure that they are buying from trusted sources and that the items used to make the products in question were not stolen or garnered through illicit practices.

For example, if you’re worried about palm oil production and you want to make sure your palm oil only comes from lawful, sustainable fields, the blockchain can help you ensure this by showing where the palm oil came from.

The Fision is a B-Corp, meaning that while it’s a money-making corporation, it has tied itself to a specific social cause and/or environmental issue as a means of allegedly trying to better the world. The T-shirts the company sells come from 80 percent Good Earth cotton, meaning the materials come from sustainable farming methods that promote soil health. Gelder continued his comments with:

Good Earth Cotton is not only innovative, but also a climate positive leader. Good Earth Cotton’s regenerative farming method allows the soil to sequester more carbon than the entire cotton growth life cycle emits, which is a natural fit for us. We incorporate recycled cotton to encourage [circularity], to reinforce moving away from a purely extractive model and to further reduce the amount of water used in the creation of the T-shirts.

Offering Clean, Sustainable Clothing

The remaining 20 percent of the cotton used from the T-shirts comes from fully recycled sources.

All the T-shirts are made in Los Angeles.
