Who are we?

Why Planet Cardiff?
You may have noticed many people in the streets of our city with designer clothes adorning the names of American Cities. Why are all these logos so popular with the Welsh youth? We have decided to give our own spin on cool casual street wear, promoting our city, the Welsh capital. So here we are, hello! Celebrating all we love and all that is unique about Cardiff with a range of t-shirts and hoodies. We hope you love it as much as we have loved making it. Feel free to email us on alrightbutt(at)planetcardiff.com
Why do we use Organic Cotton?
Organic cotton is a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. Organic cotton producers and the environment in developing countries benefit by avoiding the use of harmful toxic pesticides, and the reduced cost of production improves social conditions. Our customers benefit from garments that are manufactured without the use of thousands of toxic and carcinongenic chemicals.
By contrast the non-organic cotton industry is a huge source of global environmental pollution, using almost one quarter of all the world’s insecticides and 10% of pesticides, social conditions for cotton growers can be poor, with poverty, health problems and suicide common, and thousands of chemicals are used to turn raw material into clothes, towels, bedding and other items that we put next to our skin every day.
This is why we only use 100% Organic Cotton across our entire range.
This project is dedicated to two of our best mates Alan and Alan. We miss you.
