Sustainability is important to Finley Jacobs. We’re getting greener every step of the way, while still providing you with the quality 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.
We work 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.
Did you know that each of our products are made just for you? We only make the product when we receive your order for it, avoiding textile waste. So forget about mass-produced clothing and other items, and let us create your quality one-of-a-kind piece!
Each purchase has a footprint. You choose the size of the mark to leave on the planet, and we want to help you choose wisely. One in every five garments reaches a landfill without being worn even once. By choosing made to order, you choose products that are created only as the order is placed, creating less material waste than conventional manufacturing.
We use post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic packaging for all apparel orders shipped from our manufacturers in-house facilities. We took this step to minimize our environmental impact as recycled materials save virgin resources and require less energy to produce
Around 81% of our orders are delivered in the same region they’re fulfilled. Having fulfilment centres close to our customers is good both for the business and the planet. Strategically located fulfilment centres allow for faster shipping times and lower shipping costs, and it also helps with reducing the CO₂ emissions produced when transporting orders.
The better the quality, the longer the product lasts. Before we add new products, we do durability tests to make sure they’ll stand the test of time. We work with suppliers that produce high-quality products that last many washes, keeping print colours vibrant and the fabric soft.
Our product collection is growing along with the needs of our customers. Having already added a selection of products to the site, we plan on continuing to launch new eco-friendly products over time. Choose from a range of materials like organic cotton, recycled cotton, recycled polyester, recycled nylon, as well as organic and recycled fabric blends.
Our 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 Kornit printers that generate almost zero wastewater and use less energy than standard industry printers, which lowers our carbon footprint.
