Sustainability at Greekify ♻️
At Greekify, we're committed to doing our part towards getting closer to achieving a Net-Zero world. We recognize the fashion industry's impact on our planet at large, which is why we're doing everything within our control to cut our carbon-footprint down as much as possible. We’re getting greener every step of the way, while still providing you with the quality Greek products you deserve.
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 reaches landfills without being worn even once.
At Greekify, we only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our high-quality printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy than standard industry printers.
Information about Direct-to-Garment (DTG) Printing
This method is typically used for products with high cotton fabric content, like t-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, etc. Our clothing designs are fulfilled using various methods. Many of our products are printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) technique, which is a printing method where ink is first sprayed directly onto the garment, and then it soaks into the fabric. It’s like printing on paper, but on clothing. We use printers that generate almost zero wastewater and use less energy than standard industry printers, which lowers our carbon footprint.
The inks we use for printing are Oeko-Tex™ certified, vegan, water-based, and free of harmful chemicals. Greekify takes sustainability seriously, that’s why we take care to properly dispose of any left-over ink according to the ink supplier guidelines.
Information about Embroidery
At Greekify, we embroider our products with Oeko-Tex™ certified threads, meaning they’re safe for both adult and children's clothing. Compared to printing, embroidery is generally more durable and produces less environmental waste.
Each product you see in our catalog is made-on-demand, which means once you place the order, we start working to get it to you. It takes time for us to create and send out the product, but making each order on-demand allows us to avoid overproduction. This way we get to take care of you and the planet we all share.
