At Spinback, we aim to be as sustainable and ethical as much as possible with the products we use and how we package them to you.
We can’t get enough of organic cotton and all our T-shirts are made using this. But why do we love it so much? We know that it’s better for the planet, putting fewer nasty chemicals into the earth and using less of our precious natural resources, but did you know it’s also better for the farmers that grow it and the communities they live in? Organic cotton does cost us more than regular cotton, but by using sustainable and ethical products we believe it’s a small change that can mean so much to so many.
All our female T-Shirts are 100% OCS certified organic combed cotton. But what does that mean? Quite simply, OCS (Organic Content Standard) applies to any non-food product which contains 95-100% organic material. It verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product and tracks the flow of the raw material from its source to the final product.
Our organic hoodies are a blend of organic cotton, recycled polyester and virtuous viscose (the blend of yarns is dependent on the colour), and are PETA approved vegan friendly.
We also use compostable mailing bags to offer an eco-friendly mailing solution. The double glue line seal on our bags is designed to offer onetime re-use, as an added environmentally friendly addition. Therefore, these bags can be used twice and are fully compostable. Compostable bags can be put with the rest of the compost and are a great way to eliminate waste.
We hold a small amount of printed products in our warehouse, and in order to minimise waste will often print on demand according to requirements. Therefore, sometimes it means a slightly longer turnaround time but we always get the job done as quickly as possible and will of course keep you updated on timeframes.
Good design is sustainable design.
