Whoo-hoo! We’re pretty excited to have eco-friendly apparel as it’s very own category. It’s a great sign of our times. Global consciousness and consumer demand has given rise to a wide variety of apparel choices that have less or no impact on the earth. Our manufacturers keep us on top of all their earth friendly options and we are constantly seeking new fabrics, sources and options.
Your first thought may be organic cotton t-shirts, but the choices certainly don’t stop there. Sure, t-shirt styles alone come in 10+ different fabric options for a more sustainable garment, but tees are just the start. Bags, polos, fleeces and other items are also available for folks interested in more environmentally conscious options - all of which can be custom decorated with screen print, embroidery, or digital printing.
The five basic fabrics most commonly available are organic cotton, soy, bamboo, hemp, and PET recycled plastic. Repurposed textiles is another idea gaining popularity as well.
Custom company apparel can benefit your business in a variety of ways. Branding your uniforms, t-shirts, or promotional apparel with personality can help develop a strong company image that people will remember.
This guide is a primer for the main points to consider when ordering custom company clothing and how to start the process.
