As Indigenous people, it is our responsibility to protect and preserve mother earth; the land, and the natural environment. Our brand upholds this responsibility in a few ways:

  • We use eco-friendly inks that do far less harm to the environment than traditional inks, these inks cost more but we are committed to sustainability.
  • We employ a print-to-order method, this means we only order a set amount of blank inventory, and we ONLY print/decorate the garments when an order is placed. This prevents excess inventory. (57% of all discarded clothing ends up in a landfill, our process minimizes our contribution to this factor)
  • We recycle as many materials as possible during the print production process to reduce the amount of waste we create. 
  • We source all of our blank garments from suppliers that follow strict sustainability guidelines. (i.e reduced water usage, eco-friendly dyes, fair-trade cotton and fair wage standards, etc)

We continue to strive for more ways we can minimize our impact on mother earth, and bring you a product you can be proud to wear.

How we practice sustainability

*Approximately 10 Million tonnes

Is the average amount of clothing waste in North America, per year. A large portion of this number is the result of excessive inventory (mass produced) that is then discarded.

Take only what you need.

We take care to purchase our blank products and garments in reasonable amounts. Also, we donate any excess garments or defective shipments second hand to clothing drives and initiatives that benefit members of the Indigenous community in Toronto and surrounding communities.

It takes *approximately 2700L of water to produce a single t-shirt
