New 100% certified organic cotton, t-shirt blanks.
As of 2019, we have proudly committed to using 100% certified organic cotton t-shirt blanks, printed with water based inks, in a bid to do things the most ethical way. It's no coincidence that they're also the best quality t-shirts that we can find on the market today and believe me, we've tested a lot of them over the last few years. If you're anything like me, you'll want to be wearing the best quality tees but also sleep soundly, in the knowledge that you're part of the solution, not the problem!
Reasons why we choose Earth Positive, climate neutral t-shirt blanks;
- Manufactured using electricity from wind and solar power
- 100% certified organic cotton
- No use of child labour
- Safe and healthy working conditions
- Legal labour contracts
- Payment of living wage
- No excessive hours of work
Last summer we took the leap and installed solar panels, so any electricity hungry production processes, such as heat curing inks, can be timed to coincide with a spot of sunshine. We've become casual meteorological geeks, checking various weather apps for sunny breaks during the coming week.

Solar power makes perfect sense to us, everyone wins. We get reduced energy bills and feed green electricity back into the National Grid for others to use, offsetting our carbon footprint and lessening the impact on the environment. Our customers get a product that comes from a more environmentally responsible source, with a kind soul.
