Sustainability

We are a small business and doing the best we can to be as green as we can.  

The packaging:
The tissue paper we use to protect your t-shirt is made from recycled pulp fibres, therefore can be recycled after use once again. The paper is vegan and PH neutral indicating that it is neither acidic nor alkaline so ideal when packaging delicate items like clothing. 

 

All orders are dispatched in bags that are 100% fully recyclable.

 

The product:
All of House of Indy t-shirts are designed to last so can be passed down and re-used.
 
Every single t-shirt from the House of Indy range is unique. Each tie-dye garment is handmade in the UK with original artwork designed by me which is also printed in the UK. 
 
The dye is vegan friendly. No animals have been tested on or harmed in any process of the production at any stage.
The t-shirts (pre-dyed) are sourced from one of the most ethical companies around today. The Fruit of the Loom company code of conduct incorporates strict policies regarding human and workers’ rights, environmental sustainability, and good business ethics and these standards extend to all employees, suppliers, and affiliates.
 
Designed with the environment heavily in mind, the Moroccan affiliate’s plant has a Gold Certificate of Compliance as it contributes to sustainable manufacturing and helps protect natural resources. Things like underground pipes and a heat-exchange system help to keep energy use low. The plant even has its own water-treatment facility wherein water is processed, and up to 65% is recycled and returned to the river, cleaner than it was before. This is very beneficial to the Moroccan community, as water is a precious resource there. But what’s more, cleaning up the river water has helped to regenerate it, and the river is again teeming with wildlife it once lost.  Oeko-Tex is a renowned testing-certification system for textiles. Regulated test criteria include tests for pH-values, heavy metals, prohibited azo dyes, pesticides, harmful chemicals, and more. FOTL only uses ethically-produced yarn–which uses 30% less energy and produces 23% less waste, and all garments are Oeko- Tex standard 100 approved.  WRAP certified as well. WRAP is the largest facility-certification program in the world and is dedicated to securing global manufacturing standards that are lawful, humane, and ethical. Certification is received once suppliers show compliance with the 12 WRAP principles including workplace regulations, child labor, health and safety, and more.
