Printing Positive Change
This T-shirt was hand printed by a vulnerable adult in recovery from homelessness and other complex circumstances. They received the “Real Living Wage” for their efforts and every penny from this shirt goes back into growing Printed By us.
This item is made from organic cotton grown on a GOTS certified organic cotton farm in India. Organic cotton is grown without use of harmful chemicals and pesticides and uses less water – kinder to people and planet.
This T-shirt was handmade in a factory powered by green renewable energy in India which has been approved by the Fair Wear Foundation - a non-profit who assess fair and proper working conditions wages and employment terms.
We salvage the cuttings from organic cotton textile production, shred them and turn them back into soft cotton fibres. We add fibres made from locally recycled plastic bottles to obtain the cotton and polyester blend. We spin the blended fibres into fine yarn to make fabrics.
