Organic Cotton and Printing

Organic Cotton Production cuts out a lot of the chemical concerns and even water issues that plague cotton production. Any cotton is better than polyester – the environmental impact is front loaded and cotton breaks down unlike polyester that sheds plastic microfibres, and contains who knows how many chemicals. We really push for natural fibre printing at Custom Branded. Not only is it Better for the Environment, Better for You it is also Better for our Employees!

Not only is Cotton Better for the Environment, and Better for You, it is also Better for our Employees!

And Organic Cotton is taking off, which we love. 

organic and waterbased printing

We print using Phthalate Free Inks –  In almost all instances – Although when printing Tea Towels we go a step further and use Water-based Dye instead of ink, which leaves the surface perfectly soft and water absorbent to dry dishes with.

We are committed to removing plastic packaging – We no longer polybag individual garments for clients, and we work with suppliers such as AS Colour who are also commited to removing plastic packaging. Our mailer satchels are all compostable.

How do I know what suppliers are decent?

The easiest question to ask is, do they participate in the World Aid Fashion Report?

AS Colour are in the Top 20% of Companies who do, and they continue to keep working to do more. You can read their ethical statement here.

Comparatively AS Colour Score very high.
You can look Companies up Here:

You maybe shocked at some scores, and how many “ethical” suppliers do not report at all despite this being a big yearly industry report.
