Sustainability at Unruly Folk

We're getting greener every step of the way

while still providing you the quality products you deserve

Sustainability is important to us here at Unruly Folk

We’re constantly looking to reduce our footprint, while still providing you the quality products you deserve.

Doing the right thing—for the planet and people—is what we’re learning to do as we grow.

Around 85% of all textiles​ produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. What’s more, ​one in every five items produced by the fashion industry​ reach landfills without being worn even once.

Limiting Waste

As Unruly Folk​ works with on-demand suppliers, we only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing partner's high-quality printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy than standard industry printers.

Information about production

01.

Ending mass production

Each product you see in our catalog is made on-demand—once you place an order. We produce it specifically for you. This allows us to avoid overproduction and textile waste, and we’re continuously working toward greener production.

02.

Printing and tech materials

Our clothing is printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) printing method. The printing tech we use is made with sustainability in mind, and our Kornit printers use almost zero wastewater and less energy than standard industry printers, lowering our carbon footprint.

03.

Vegan Inks

The inks we use for printing are vegan, water-based, and free of harmful chemicals. ​Unruly Folk takes sustainability seriously, that’s why we take care to dispose of any left-over ink according to the ink supplier guidelines.

Efficient Shipping

Around 78% of orders are delivered in the same region they’re fulfilled. Having fulfillment centers close to our customers is good both for the business and the planet. Strategically located fulfillment centers allow for faster shipping times and lower shipping costs, and it also helps with reducing the CO₂ emissions produced when transporting orders.
