"Sustainable clothing is no longer that extra something; the consumer and the planet are demanding change.
Eco-friendly clothing? How can it be done? Shirtify considers sustainability as one of its business values and therefore we make every effort to minimise the carbon footprint of our company. Our production is a lot more environmentally friendly than both traditional and other digital printing systems in our industry.
Our production meets the highest sustainable standard with zero wastewater and a low carbon footprint.
We believe that sustainability is not a trend but an attitude, one which we try to respect at every step.
Water and sustainable clothing
Environmentally friendly clothing? We all prefer not to think about it too much. But how do we get there? First of all, there is the water consumption. Water is the essence of life, a precious resource that must be preserved. That is why our technologies do not waste water. The main environmental risk factor in textiles is water pollution. Consequently, the amount of water currently used and polluted is staggering. Traditional textile processing pollutes 20% of the world's precious water resources, much of which is extracted from vital fresh water sources. Our waterless printing solutions, free from pre-treatment, steaming or washing, bring about a sustainable change. Protecting the world's resources is a responsibility we take very seriously.
Digital printing of clothes saves water by using inkjet technology. How? Ink is sprayed directly onto the surface of the fabric - a hugely disruptive process that will revolutionise the traditional textile printing industry.
Our sustainable kleding frees both manufacturer and consumer from an outdated business model of overconsumption. Don't want to make more than you need? Manage inventory, speed up production and deliver design diversity at every scale. As a result, your carbon footprint will be reduced, and precious resources saved.
Switching to a sustainable alternative? Printing on demand reduces inventory, ensures zero waste, offers design diversity and is risk averse. Production on demand, closer to the consumer, facilitates production speed and accurate stock replenishment. Consequently, this eliminates overproduction and thus reduces landfill and environmental pollution. At the end of the day, your clothes are more environmentally friendly.
Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint
Environmentally friendly textile printing is also about energy consumption. Digital technologies use a fraction of the energy of traditional textile printing methods. The earth is saturated with toxic carbon, 10% of which can only be attributed to the production of the fashion industry. Sustainable production processes result in a smaller carbon footprint - in some cases even zero. Why? By using green energy, energy is saved and consequently CO2 emissions are reduced. Shirtify aims to reduce the footprint of our company and suppliers. Sustainable production is in our DNA. Switch to clean, efficient and sustainable clothing and join our mission to fight climate change.
Environmentally friendly textile printing with safer products
Textiles envelop our lives, the planet and our skin. But how do you protect your customers and the environment from toxic substances? How do you make your clothes sustainable? Shirtify is committed to green certification and our products contain minimal hazardous substances. All our products are certified and go beyond the legal certification for the textile industry. The inks we use are environmentally friendly and safe for skin and children.
Protecting the environment has been part of Shirtify's strategy since day one and we are committed to this. Through constant innovation, we strive to not only meet, but to exceed ever-changing industry standards. All chemicals are subject to strict certification. Be safe in our sustainable textile printing.
