LifeLabs, the first textile innovator making meaningful progress in combating the effects of climate change through thermally-efficient textiles, announces the launch of the world's most cooling T-shirt in a range of styles and colors to offer maximum versatility and comfort for everyday wear. LifeLabs' innovative take on the spring / summer wardrobe staple brings science and design together allowing individuals to stay cool without sacrificing style. The classic T-shirt is elevated through CoolLife, the world's first thermally-transparent, Polyethylene fabric that cools your body temperature by nearly 3°F and allows an individual's body heat to escape rapidly, creating a more effective and efficient cooling effect throughout the day unlike any other apparel on the market.
LifeLabs' Everyday Cooling T-shirt incorporates recycled materials and stands apart from other cooling garments since CoolLife tech is the only material that delivers more effective cooling with less environmental impact. The essentials are not only functional but also designed for long-term sustainability. CoolLife items are not only cool to the touch, but by wearing them, individuals experience sustained cooling throughout the day, greater than other brands, allowing them to adjust their thermostat by three degrees Fahrenheit which is estimated to save 400lbs of carbon per household per year. This can decrease global greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution over time, through reducing energy usage on a personal and global level.
"The T-shirt is a quintessential item in every wardrobe so we're taking the simplicity of the basic T-shirt and re-engineering it into something more," said Scott Mellin, CEO of LifeLabs. "As temperatures rise, we've created the only cooling T-shirt on the planet in a number of styles and colors that will provide unparalleled comfort for any occasion. Our apparel is designed with a practical sensibility and by using less materials and reduced energy usage, we're also supporting a more sustainable lifestyle."
For the first time, LifeLabs, known for its minimalist designs in a neutral palette, is introducing colors. Select men's and women's CoolLife T-shirts will be available in shades inspired by nature including altitude (celestial blue), olive (conifer green) and ice (blue glass). LifeLabs collection of cooling T-shirts using recycled materials include:
