One of our favorite January traditions here at NTF is to look back on the year before in terms of our impact. It’s important to us that we’re mindful of the effects of the industry that we work in and we strive to make eco-friendly, responsible choices throughout our process. One of the ways that we make this effort every day is by printing on Allmade Apparel shirts. If you’re familiar with us, you know that we’re very proud of our partnership with Allmade and the effort to follow their mission to make it better! Allmade shirts are made with the goal of making it better as the main focus in each step of the process, including the use of recycled materials, cutting back on chemical usage, and providing their employees with living wages. Last year (for the first time ever!) we were able to see how printing on Allmade made an actual impact on the world using their Impact Calculator, and we’re really excited to share our stats from 2019 with you!
In 2019, Nothing Too Fancy printed on enough Allmade Apparel shirts to add up to:
673,680 gallons of water saved.
ALLMADE SHIRTS USE 70% LESS WATER THAN A TYPICAL CONVENTIONAL SHIRT.

We’re incredibly proud of these numbers and our collaborative efforts with Allmade over the last few years, but of course we couldn’t have done it without you. We hope that every time you put on your favorite NTF x Allmade tee that you feel proud to wear a shirt that’s already made the world a little better. Thank you to everyone who has supported these efforts with the purchase of our tees, we’re all making it better together. Let’s do a lot more of that in 2020 and the decade ahead of us!
