Imagine your favorite graphic tee – the one that perfectly expresses your style. Now, imagine it being made with the planet in mind. That’s the power of eco-friendly t-shirt printing with Every Tees.


Today’s consumers, especially millennials and Gen Z, are driving a powerful trend: the demand for sustainable products. Studies show a staggering 71% increase in online searches for sustainable goods in just the past five years! This eco-conscious movement isn’t just about trendy hashtags; it’s about making informed choices for a healthier planet.

Traditional t-shirt printing, unfortunately, often leaves a dark stain on the environment. Plastisol inks, commonly used in screen printing, contain harmful chemicals that pollute waterways when washed. Cleaning these inks also generates significant chemical waste, adding to the environmental burden. On top of that, traditional dryers gobble up energy, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.

Here’s the good news: there’s a better way. Eco-friendly printing techniques are revolutionizing the industry, allowing you to wear your message with pride, knowing you’re also making a positive impact.

Printing with the Planet in Mind

Embracing eco-friendly t-shirt printing methods has a significant positive impact on our environment. By opting for sustainable practices, we can reduce the strain on natural resources, decrease pollution, and contribute to a healthier ecosystem. Here are some key environmental benefits of choosing eco-friendly printing techniques:

Reduced Water Usage and Pollution

Conventional printing relies heavily on water for processes like washing screens and inks. A single dyeing and finishing mill can consume an average of 150 cubic meters (39,625 gallons) of water per ton of textiles processed.

Eco-friendly alternatives like water-based inks significantly reduce water consumption. These inks are also free of harsh chemicals often found in traditional inks, minimizing water pollution caused by wastewater.

Minimizing Printing Waste

Screen printing, a popular method, involves creating physical screens for each color. This process generates waste from discarded screens and unused inks.

Digital printing, an eco-friendly option, utilizes digital files, eliminating physical screens and minimizing ink waste. Estimates suggest digital printing can reduce ink waste by up to 70% compared to traditional screen printing.

Organic Cotton T-Shirts

Cotton production alone accounts for about 1/5th of all insecticides used globally. Choosing organic cotton t-shirts for printing reduces your environmental impact by supporting sustainable farming practices that use less water and avoid harmful chemicals.

 By choosing eco-friendly printing techniques and organic cotton t-shirts from Every Tees, you’re not just getting a great print, you’re contributing to a healthier planet for Malaysia. Remember, every t-shirt counts!

Eco-friendly T Shirt Printing

Choosing eco-friendly t-shirt printing methods doesn’t just benefit the environment; it also has significant health advantages for consumers. Traditional printing techniques often involve the use of chemicals and toxins that can have adverse effects on health. By opting for eco-friendly alternatives, you can wear your t-shirts with confidence, knowing they are free from harmful substances.

Let’s explore the key health benefits of eco-friendly t-shirt printing and how it contributes to a safer and more comfortable wearing experience.

Reduced Exposure to Toxins

Eco-friendly inks are free of harmful chemicals commonly found in traditional inks. This is especially important for children’s clothing, where sensitive skin is more susceptible to irritation.

By choosing eco-friendly printing, you can ensure the t-shirts your children wear are safe and comfortable, minimizing the risk of irritation.

Safer for Allergies or Sensitivities

While data specific to Malaysia might be limited, allergies and skin sensitivities are a global concern. Eco-friendly printing eliminates a potential trigger.

The use of natural, non-toxic inks reduces the risk of allergic reactions and skin irritation, making eco-friendly printed t-shirts a comfortable and safe choice for everyone.Eco-friendly printing also benefits the workers in the printing industry. Reduced exposure to toxic chemicals ensures safer working conditions and promotes long-term health for employees.

Remember: Choosing eco-friendly printing isn’t just good for the environment, it’s good for your health too!
