Eco-Friendly T-Shirt Printing Options for Your Business

Eco-Friendly T-Shirt Printing Options for Your Business

T-shirts are almost a hundred years old, and they’re everywhere. Since the 70s, tees have been a medium for expression, empowering individuality by printing slogans and art.

Given that, organic and sustainable tees are a terrific way to promote urgent changes in the fashion industry. Textile manufacturing has a negative impact on the environment and society, especially in underdeveloped countries, and the new generation of consumers are increasingly aware of this. And they are changing their consuming habits: three-quarters of people born after the 1990s prefer sustainability over brand when purchasing apparel. 

Other demographics are gradually moving in that direction. One-third of the consumers stopped buying goods from companies with poor sustainability policies.

It is time to change for the better. 

This article will introduce you to the sustainable T-shirts and apparel in our catalog, which can take your brand to the next step and help do better for our planet.

FAQ

Organic T-shirts are made to last if treated properly. Don’t wash them together with traditional clothing and avoid using chemicals such as softeners. 

Most common T-shirts have a lifespan of six months to a year. A well-treated organic T-shirt may last for one to two wears, depending on your weather conditions and how much you sweat.

The majority of eco-friendly companies use fair trade, organic cotton cultivated without toxic chemicals. Other eco-friendly fabric options include:

  • Hemp fabric, ramie, viscose, and bamboo fibers. 
  • Recycled plastic, mostly polyester.

The best way to wash organic clothing is with fewer chemicals and energy. Natural methods like soap and cold water will do fine. Avoid detergents, softeners, and stain removers.

The cotton in organic tees is harvested and treated differently from conventional cotton T-shirts, submitted to methods such as ring-spinning and combing to ensure comfortable fabrics without chemical treatment. 

In comparison, the cotton in conventional T-shirts is hastily grown and harvested and is treated with chemicals for softening. As the chemicals wear off, softeners are required during the washing of conventional shirts.
