Print on demand
First of all we are a print-on-demand business. Coming full circle, printing on demand is about as sustainable as it gets when it comes to eco-friendly business models. Producing products on demand eliminates the need to buy and hold on to a pre-printed stock that you may or may not end up using. Zero inventory, zero waste
It’s a term that gets thrown around a lot, but what does eco-friendly actually mean? By definition, something that’s eco-friendly has little or no damaging effect on the environment. In other words, it’s kinder to the planet.
Join the plastic-free movement by buying our biodegradable phone cases. Made from PLA plant polymer and bamboo fibers, these slim and lightweight cases naturally biodegrade 160 days after disposal. They also support wireless charging for hassle-free battery charging on the go. Buy them as is or offer gift packaging options for special events. win, win.
From fruit and veg to clothes and accessories, organic products are everywhere right now — and for good reason. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton in particular is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment.
Our apparel range features a variety of organic cotton options, including our organic creator unisex t-shirt made from super-soft, combed organic cotton. Finished with a ribbed crew neck, these organic cotton t-shirts are cut with a slouchy, relaxed fit. Stylish and environmentally friendly — what’s not to like?
No one likes waste (us included), which is why we always choose items with the highest percentage of recycled content in our eco-friendly print on demand products. Taking old materials and recycling them into shiny new products helps reduce the amount of rubbish that ends up in landfill. Plus, y’know, it adds character.
Made with 80% recycled cotton and 20% recycled polyester canvas, our woven tote bags are good for the earth and perfect for eco-conscious consumers. The long handles with reinforced cross-stitch add great durability while the shaping seam at the bottom creates volume – a great feature for filling up the bag without disfiguring it.
While many of us are already ditching plastic for eco-friendly alternatives there’s still a lot of it out there. And with some plastics taking up to 450 years to break down, it’s clear that the planet has a real plastic problem on its hands. For that reason, we avoid using plastics in our products and packaging wherever possible.
Products like our PLA Bento Box with Band and Utensils (PLA for “personalized lunch accessory”) but it’s got an even better meaning. It’s a bioplastic made from the polylactic acid of plant starches, aka an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic. This bento box comes in one size (7.4″ x 5.1″ x 2.3″/18.8cm x 13cm x 5.8cm) that’ll fit a full-blown lunchtime special. A sturdy rubber band keeps all of its contents safe.
We’ve already touched on reusable canvas totes, but did you know that we also sell reusable stainless steel travel mugs? An easy swap that can make a big difference, our eco-friendly travel cups are an ideal alternative to takeaway options that your customers can reuse again and again (and again).
Another alternative in our products. Add flavor and personality to your water with a single move – this custom infuser water bottle. Twist the base off to access the infuser and add fruits, tea leaves, or anything you desire to enhance the flavor of your water. On the top, you’ll find a twist-on lid with a flip-top drinking sprout for a seamless drinking experience. This infuser is excellent for use at home, during outdoor excursions, or at the gym as a sports bottle always reusable…
Not just a pretty picture, our vegan canvas prints also boast some serious green credentials. Made from sustainably sourced materials, these canvases offer an eco-friendly solution for showcasing our artwork.
Fun fact: sustainably managed forests meet the needs of wildlife while supporting livelihoods and providing a range of other ecosystem services. We love to see it.
Water-based eco inks
In case you hadn’t noticed, we print a lot of stuff. That’s why we use eco-friendly inks across our print-on-demand products, which — unlike solvent-based inks — are free from toxic chemicals.
The beauty of our global fulfillment network is that it allows us to route orders to print labs closest to your customers, significantly lowering carbon emissions as a result.
International trade-related freight transport is thought to be responsible for 7% of all carbon emissions globally, so local fulfillment just makes sense.
