Green Practices for Creating Sustainable Clothes
It's no secret that we consider ourselves "eco freakos" around here. We work hard to make sustainable clothes and help you build your ethical wardrobe. Part of our process includes our day-to-day eco friendly practices. Read on to find out more of what we do every day around the office to be kind to Mother Earth and create sustainable clothing.
better screenprintingWhen screenprinting our sustainable clothes, we employ a variety of green practices, including using only low-impact inks, citrus solvents for clean-up, and printing in small batches for less waste.
waste reductionWe reuse paper, boxes and envelopes, as well as all packing materials we receive. Don't be surprised to see you receive a box with some markings and history - keep the story going!
eco goods onlyAs a sustainable clothing brand, we carry eco-friendly clothing items, many of which contain organic cotton, recycled fibers, and hemp. Check out our eco guide to find out more about our products.
green officeWe are green office certified through the Greenline Paper Co., which means we use energy wisely, we recycle, we use recycled products & we are overall environmentally savvy.
less printingOver the past few years, we have greatly reduced the number of catalogs we print. We print our wholesale catalogs using soy-based inks on 100% post consumer recycled paper.
softer footprintsWe have helped to offset our carbon footprint through many donations to Carbon Fund which support renewable energy and reforestation projects that reduce CO2. We ship all UPS shipments carbon neutral to help offset our carbon impact.
