3 Great Eco-Conscious Custom T-Shirt Brands.
Nowadays, we’re all aware of environmental issues. In truth, it’s fair to say such concerns affect virtually every area of life. That is, altering priorities and behaviour – how we do things, where we shop and what we buy. Naturally, our industry, printing and embroidery, is also changing in response to such concerns. That’s one of the reason why, for Fifth Column, ethical t shirt printing became a key part of our outlook and the way we operate. Because creating eco-conscious custom t-shirts is increasingly important. And there’s no better place to start than choosing a great blank surface to decorate – plain clothing designed for customisation.
To that end, we’ve picked a selection of tees from three of the best eco-aware custom brands out there. These are shirts intended for printing and personalisation and manufactured from materials which are kinder to the environment. Plus, accredited by reputable organisations for not only the authenticity of the fabrics but the supply chain behind them. Well worth a look if you’re already engaged in an eco-conscious approach or simply considering taking steps in that direction.
Getting Eco-Conscious with Stanley Stella Shirts.
Not surprisingly, we’ve kicked off with Stanley Stella. To explain, they are quite rightly recognised as one of the most sustainable clothing brands in the world. And that’s a general ranking not just the plain clothing sector. Their charter outlines a commitment to methods of business which include the responsible treatment of people and the planet. By the way, they offer a huge range of merchandise and many more t-shirts than the four we’ve featured above. In truth, we could have chosen any of them in terms of eco-friendlier apparel.
Customising Continental Eco-Conscious Tees.
As alluded to with the garments above, Continental Clothing is the signature brand but this company encompasses several different divisions. As well as Earth Positive and Salvage, there is also another called Fair Share. The latter relates to a scheme which ensures a fair living wage for garment workers in their Indian factory. All of these labels are independently accredited and dedicated to an ethical, eco aware form of commercial activity. As with the others appearing in this article, high quality is part of their appeal. And that’s important because clothing has to last to make sense of sustainability.
Neutral Eco-Conscious Custom T-Shirts.
Our third eco-conscious brand, Neutral® Certified Responsibility™, are yet another with irrefutable credentials when it comes to sustainability. And they have a wealth of certifications, independently defined and monitored, to prove it. Think GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), Fairtrade, SA8000 Standard (social certification) and many more besides. Put quality into that mix and you have a rather attractive combination for printing and embroidery. As with the others, the merchandise highlighted here is only a sample of what’s available from this supplier.
Well, that’s about it for now. Above, we’ve given a flavour of three manufacturers who excel in quality base products. But whatever plain shirt you choose, your custom clothing and t-shirt printing at Fifth Column is guaranteed to be good. We’re talking high quality clothes screen printing and premium embroidery. With a reputation for fairness in all areas of our business.
