This piece was created by Econscious, one of Fairware’s favourite suppliers of organic apparel and accessories. Like us, they’re used to getting questions about the best ways to imprint organic cotton tee shirts while keeping environmental impact in mind. Back in 2007, they reached out to our mutual friends at Brown and Wilmanns Environmental, LLC and asked them to survey the existing ink technologies on the market. Mike Brown and Eric Wilmanns are experts in “greening” textile products and apparel, and have worked with leading sustainable brands across North America. We’re pleased to share what they came back with on environmentally responsible methods of screen printing, which we think is still relevant today.
