Eco Friendly Thread?

17 Feb

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of Proforma Simonetta Freelance, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

Ok, so bamboo shirts, e.c.o fleece jackets made from recycled water bottles, soy flax polos and organic cotton t-shirts. We all have seen the great environmentally sustainable and sustaining apparel products that are now available to help promote your business. If you are an Ecopreneurist running a green business then eco-friendly apparel for your promotional items and uniforms is pretty much a given.

Last year the race was on to figure out the best, safest and most sustainable printing methods for t-shirts and caps. Is it water based inks or veg/soy based dyes, or another option? That debate is still out there.

Well Docufinish is one of the companies in the middle of figuring out how to make the “greenest” production shirts possible and today they sent our office a box of samples of shirts they ran for us with water based ink for the City of Plano which included the letter on the right.

What caught my eye in the letter however is the statement in the second paragraph, “Please also keep in mind that we just recently got the ability to produce green embroidered apparel with 100% Organic Rayon thread made from tree pulp.”

Eco friendly thread? Cool. Now polos and jackets and the rest can compete fully in the super-green apparel categories with bags, caps and t-shirts.

Well done Docufinish. Now will you please get your tech folks on fixing your website so that you have information there on your apparel items? Come on guys, show off a little.

Until the Docufinish site is updated contact Docufinish sales rep Jason Lambert for more information on appareal with eco-thread and water based printing or send us an email at info@proformagreen.com.

    Suspect is elderly man believed to have link to white supremacist groups

    A security guard was shot to death after an elderly man said to have ties to white supremacist groups walked into the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday and opened fire, officials say.
    The man shot the guard with a rifle as soon as he entered the building at 12:52 p.m. ET, said Cathy Lanier, the chief of D.C.’s city police. The guard was taken to George Washington University Hospital, where he later died.

    I am thinking of getting a new desk for my home office. What do you suppose of this cool desk? Companion and I can’t agree on desk for home office.

    I believe it is a great looking desk but my spouse doesn’t think so. What do you people guess? It is pre-owned and a superior desk for a professional office, but my spouse wishes for a new one from Walmart. What do you all think? Here is a link to the desk: Used Office Furniture Austin

    Thanks for your opinions!
