The quality of most funny t-shirts is no laughing matter. In an age of crowd-sourced art, outsourced mass production, and budget blanks printed with harmful chemicals, we’re proud to do things the long, hard, sustainable way.
Our garments are ethically sourced in the USA, cut & sewn to our custom specifications by our small, longstanding manufacturer, certified annually by the California Garment Manufacturers Bureau to guarantee fair, safe, and ethical working conditions.
Our garment manufacturer is certified according to the “Voluntary Standards on Nonuse of Harmful Substances for Textiles and Clothing” issued by the Japan Textiles Federation (JTF), to ensure that only environmentally safe, nontoxic substances are used in the dyeing of our garments.
Our buttery soft, vintage inspired t-shirts are printed by a small team in our Burlington, Vermont headquarters, using water-based inks, free of heavy metals, formaldehyde and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APE), making them non-hazardous, non-toxic and biodegradable.
Unlike most screen printed shirts, with thick ink that sits on top of the shirt, our water-based inks get absorbed into the fabric leaving a soft, breathable print..
Our cutting edge, digital technology is built upon a waterless manufacturing process that requires no pretreatment, streaming, or washing.
Did you know that the volume of water used in conventional dyeing and textile print processes could fill the Mediterranean Sea every two years! The number one environmental risk factor in textiles is water pollution.
Beyond our ethically sourced raw materials and eco-friendly manufacturing processes, the sustainable purpose-driven philosophy of our brand is evident in the poignant topics we tackle and the cool, stylish manner through which we share these crucial messages.
Our Environmentalism collection of t-shirts takes on climate change, providing a fun, fashionable voice to this activism, including a tribute tee to the leader of the next generation of climate activists, Greta Thunberg, with a portion of the proceeds donated to Greta’s Fridays For Future organization.
