Environmental Policy

Ethical / Environment Policy:

Our manufacturers (Inkthreadable) are dedicated to operating under ethical and envi­ron­men­tally friendly practices during the production processes. They work hard to continue refining these processes because it's a commitment both them and us don't take lightly:­ 

  • All of their staff are paid above the national living wage, regardless of age.
  • Their DTG printers use only water-based inks. They're OEKO-TEX® approved (they don't contain any regulated or unregulated chemicals harmful to the environment)
  • The inks also - contain no harmful toxins, contain no animal by-products, and are safe to use on products for both children and adults
  • Their catalogue offers a wide variety of organic and fair wear accredited garments.
  • All the excess and waste cardboard and paper they produce is recycled.
  • Waste ink is unavoidable, but they dispose of ours responsibily.
  • Failed prints are also unavoidable, but as of 1st March 2018 all products that failed quality checks will be donated to charity. 
  • DPD, one of their delivery partners, have a carbon neutral commitment.
  • From April 2018 the packaging used to ship all orders is either 100% recyclable or biodeg­ra­dable, or both.
  • Some of their items are fully manufactured in the UK, by them, and you can be confident these are produced responsibly and ethically. These products include their tote bags, throw cushions and natural throw cushions.

  • GILDAN, whose t-shirts we print on, have a rigorous dedication to the product they create and the people that work for them. You can find out about everything they do to improve the world of fashion here: http://www.gildancorp.com/responsibility-landing-page
  • AWDis, who hoodies we print on, also are a WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified company, and you can read their ethics policy here: https://justhoodsbyawdis.com/sustainability

We're very open about our commitment to this ethics and environmental policy. If you'd like to talk to us about anything, or you have some suggestions on how we can do more, you can catch us on info@thepashionfroot.com
