Environmental policies and use of natural inks

Preserving the world’s resources is a responsibility that we take very seriously. Every purchase, big or small, has a footprint. With each purchase, you have a choice. You choose the size of the mark to leave on the planet, and we want to help you choose wisely. By choosing print-on-demand, you choose apparel that’s created only as the order is placed, creating less fabric waste than conventional manufacturing.

Traditional printing is polluting

  • Up to 85% of all textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills
  • 20% of garments reach a landfill without being worn even once
  • Traditional textile processing pollutes 20% of the earth’s precious water sources
  • The amount of water used in conventional dyeing and textile print processes can fill the mediterranean sea completely every 2 years

Zero Waste: The sustainability benefits of Print-on-Demand

  • Digital printing uses 95% less water and 50-60% less energy than traditional printing
  • We only print an item once it’s been ordered, which minimizes overproduction and excess waste
  • Print-on-demand is the most resource-conscious option in the industry
  • Zero inventory, zero waste
