Amanda Rinderle and Jonas Clark recently launched a company that aims to make preppy clothing that is also sustainable. Although it is fairly easy for consumers to find organic T-shirts and even eco-friendly denim, it is far more difficult to find business wear that is sustainable. This brand aims to change the face of eco-friendly fashion by giving consumers a greater range of choices.

'Tuckerman' is a new apparel brand that specializes in making sustainable business wear. More specifically, the brand specializes in making high-quality button-downs out of Italian-woven organic cotton. Every part of the design process is eco-friendly, from the materials used to the buttons that adorn each shirt. In addition to minimizing environmental damage, the company also seeks to foster ethical labor practices. All of the clothing is made in Fall River, Massachusetts, and workers are paid above minimum wage.

The goals of Tuckerman is to provide consumers with preppy clothing that is not only stylish, but also sustainable.
