By 2050, the ratio between fish and plastic in Earth's waterways is predicted to be 1:1. We are committed to ending this possibility by rethinking how plastic waste is used.
Reuses Plastic Waste
6 plastic bottles worth of plastic waste is recycled into each shirt, collected from the Great Lakes + other US waterways and reducing your carbon footprint - the world's first apparel company to use 100% United States plastic waste.
Our entire supply chain is located in the US - from resource collection to final product. Our recycled polyester is produced in North Carolina, our cotton is collected in South Carolina, and our design team resides in Muskegon, Michigan.
This shirt was designed with the mindset of combating against the effect of fast fashion. A timeless, durable blend of 50% cotton and 50% recycled polyester with an embroidered center logo piece - all unisex sizing.
5% to the Great Lakes
Oshki was founded due to threats we saw to the Great Lakes watershed. 5% of all proceeds are donated to non-profits working to preserve the Great Lakes through community action, governmental reform, and intensive research
"It's not about American exceptionalism, It's about creating the most sustainable product possible"
Why we chose to produce 100% of our product in the United States - from resource extraction to final packaging.
Founded in 2017
Inspired by threats to the Great Lakes ecosystem to found Oshki - meaning "Fresh" in Native American Ojibwe. Shift in 2019 to use of 100% United States plastic waste in all apparel.
What Our Customers Say
I bought this Oshki shirt because I thought the premise was great: help remove and reuse some of the plastic waste from the Great Lakes. But it turns out, the shirt is really soft and comfortable in addition to being good for the environment. A win-win.
I actually didn’t know what to expect from the t-shirt. The concept is awesome, but I figured the shirt would be a normal t-shirt. That is not the case. This shirt is extremely soft, fits perfectly, and almost has a “shimmer” to it.
Great products for a great cause near and dear to this Michigander! The shirts are soft and comfortable and I love knowing my money is helping preserve the Great Lakes I grew up enjoying!
I received my shirt very quickly. It is so soft! I get compliments on it every where I wear it!
