We are serious about the environment.
The sublimation printing method that is used to print our products is one of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable methods of garment printing and production currently being used industry wide. The dyes we use are safe and not harmful in any way.
Our printers opt for using CYMK, the result is that only a minimal amount of dye inks are used in the printing of our products.
Compared to print screening, which uses large amounts of water in its design implantation, our printing uses none. Because the process turns the solid directly to a gas, there is absolutely no need for water in the dyeing process.
Starting this year we made the first steps into making eco-friendlier packaging for the products to reduce overall plastic material waste. Smaller products are sent out straight in mailers without additional clear plastic inside.
We try to do our best to minimize waste in packaging and source eco-friendly packaging materials. Many of our packaging materials are either recyclable or biodegradable. Bubble wraps are made from a minimum of 15% recycled plastic and 10% post-consumer content. Our kraft tubes are made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and 0-30% secondary recycled content.
To minimise the use of fossil fuels we don't hold stock in house. All orders are shipped direct from our manufacturers. Which means there is less transport pollution involved in purchasing Aqaburns products.
