How Its Made
All Funky Yeti T-shirts and hoodies are printed to order using Direct To Garment (DTG) printing. DTG printing works in a similar way to your printer at home (but bigger), allowing high resolution printing in multiple colours. DTG printing is more expensive than screen printing, however this method help us to reduce wastage by only printing what is required, meaning unsold items don't end up in landfill and reducing our carbon footprint.
Organic Cotton Vs Conventional Cotton
Conventional cotton has “earned” the title of being the dirtiest crop on earth. It consumes 16% of the world's insecticides and requires $2 Billion in pesticides each year. Pesticides and insecticides used in cotton production contaminate the soil we use to grow crops, the air we breathe and the water we drink. The deaths of animals exposed to these contaminants is counted in the millions every year.
Global consumption of non-organic cotton releases huge amounts of greenhouse gas into our atmosphere, about 220 million tonnes a year. 1 tonne of conventional cotton fibre produces 1.8 tonnes of CO2e. The damage caused to us and the environment by growing non-organic cotton is enormous and is a real threat to us and our planet.
Organic cotton is grown without harmful chemicals, leaving the soil, air and water free from contaminates that cause harm. Organic cotton produces around 46% less CO2e compared to conventional cotton.
It also uses far less water to grow since organic cotton growers typically utilise rain far more than irrigation. On top of all that, organic cotton growers use beneficial insects to control unwanted pests instead of relying on harmful chemicals, thus encouraging biodiversity. It's a win-win for humanity and earth.
Fun fact: 100% cotton (organic cotton preferably of course!) is the most compostable fabric because it can decompose so quickly. When composted, it can decompose in only a few weeks.
