Affordable, but make it sustainable.

Sustainability, eco-friendly, organic and biodegradable are all words floating around a lot more today than they have ever been before. Here at Awesome Merchandise, we’re thinking about these words daily and continuously considering how we can improve our products, the lifetime value and the impact they have on our clients and our world. 

 

Our products are made with our makers in mind, you create, and we make. We source all of our products directly from the producers, this way, we can track every step of a product’s journey, to ensure that we are providing you with the most eco-friendly items we can. 

 

  

 

The most popular T-Shirts in our store are produced by Gildan, who were founded in 1984 by the Chamandy Brothers in Canada. They are world renowned for having the most versatile shirt options available for distributors, whilst ensuring that their manufacturing processes are as sustainable as possible

 

 

Cheap shirts, huh? Don’t you worry about those stereotypical environmental impacts! You wouldn’t believe the steps that Gildan have taken to ensure that every aspect of their business is sustainable. Gildan was even voted 32nd in The Wall Street Journal’s Top 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies in the World, and they were only competing against three other apparel companies that made the list. Gildan’s founding principle for their business strategy is to ensure that they consider all of the aspects regarding sustainability and their impact on the environment. They are fully committed to improving their footprint and looking for ways to reduce it as well. In 2007 they installed a biomass steam generator facility to contribute towards the 44% renewable energy which they use all year round. 

 

Gildan has over 45,000 direct employees worldwide and has amazing community engagement programmes in place. To ensure that their staff are not only cared for and appreciated, but also supported throughout their lives whilst working for Gildan. With that in mind, meals and transportation for all staff is provided. Along with ensuring that their medical health is always taken into consideration too with free onsite medical practices available. 

 

Majority of their cotton is sourced sustainably from the USA, and by choosing their products, you are supporting production that optimizes water use, improving soil health and preserving natural habitats. Combine this with our water based ink printing option and you’re definitely going to be doing your bit to make the print industry more sustainable. The T-Shirts we stock on our store are a smooth fabric which is ideal for retail, and inclusive for all body types.
