Making It Better with Allmade in 2018 and Beyond
Happy New Year, everyone! You know the drill - now is the time for us all to reflect on last year and think about what we want to make happen in this brand spankin' new year. We’re no exception - as we think back on 2018, we have a lot to be grateful for and a lot to be excited about! At Nothing Too Fancy, one highlight stands out above the rest for our 2018 recap - and that’s the growth of our partnership with Allmade Apparel.
Allmade Apparel was founded by a screen print supply company and ten screen printing businesses across the United States who wanted to bring change to the garment industry's impact both on the Earth and the people who work within that industry. We’re really proud of Allmade and the difficult and important work that their team does. There are a ton of companies out there who aim to make a positive difference, but we have to hand it to these guys for going absolutelyabove and beyond to make positive change. This past year, we switched most of our locally printedt-shirt collection over to Allmade, and we’re really excited to share with you what that means. The impact of the shirts Nothing Too Fancy printed from Allmade Apparel in 2018 added up to a total of:
747,600 Gallons of Water Saved
Allmade Shirts use 70% less water than a typical conventional shirt.
26,166 oz (1,635 lbs)
Allmade Shirts are not chemically treated. Typical conventional alternatives can contain over 5oz each.
119,616 oz (7,476 lbs)
Crude Oil Reduced
That's 24.92 barrels of oil! Every Allmade shirt saves an est. 6.4oz of oil over its typical conventional shirt alternative.
Every Allmade shirt saves 6 bottles from landing in the landfill.
Living Wage Jobs
Allmade helps provide Living Wage Jobs in Haiti. An impact that extends beyond the individual!
Every living wage job that Allmade creates helps families live a better life!
It’s incredible to us that our little local t-shirt business was able to make this amount of impact in one year. We’re super proud of our partnership with Allmade, but we have YOU to thank for the success of what we’ve been able to do with them. Whether you’re local to Knoxville or a far-away fan of Tennessee and you’ve bought a shirt from NTF that says Allmade on the tag, you made a difference in 2018. We think that’s something you should feel good about. We hope you and yours have had a wonderful holiday season and take time to reflect on the good things of the last year. Our hope for 2019 is to make more of a difference, maximize our impact in as many ways as possible, and to keep working to make it better with Allmade.
