Our team at Future Folk Designs are addicted to vibrant and punchy designs that radiate what matters. We also value our positive, respectful and driven team members. Together we have made a commitment to be transparent with our business operations, minimise our waste, embrace and integrate more sustainable practices and continue to make ethical choices.
The business is ever-evolving and this is a journey that will be ongoing. Our goal is to contribute to positive change for our world, our people, our children and ourselves.
We acknowledge and pay our respects to the past, present and emerging traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live.
SUSTAINABLE AND GREEN PRACTICES
For printing onto our t-shirts, we use eco-friendly ECO-SOL MAX inks that produce quick drying graphics with superb colours that are durable and long-lasting. ECO-SOL MAX inks are GREENGUARD Gold Certified which means they have low chemical emissions, recognised as safe-to-use and require no special ventilation or environmental equipment. This standard has been designed to define low-emitting materials suitable for environments where people, particularly children and sensitive adults, spend extended periods of time.
Eco-solvent inks such as ECO-SOL MAX are made from natural substances that are water-based and even better they are biodegradable, meaning they will not contaminate soil, water or effect the environment.
All of our marketing material is printed on 100% recycled paper and we keep printing to a minimum.
Moving forward Future Folk Designs will continue to collaborate with like-minded designers, makers and companies who are conscious about our environment, making sustainable choices and operate under fair work conditions. We will celebrate the people that make our brand what it is.
We are also committed to working with our suppliers to identify production processes that reduce impact on the environment. We want and encourage our supply chain to support its employees and create rewarding jobs.
As always, we will support creativity and believe in respect for everyone.
FAIR WORKING CONDITIONS
We strongly support and insist fair and safe working conditions throughout our supply chain. This includes the prohibition of child or forced labour and the guarantee of fair wages, reasonable working hours and safe working environments.
There is no discrimination at Future Folk Designs in hiring, promoting, collaborating, licensing or terminating based on race, caste, religion, origin, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, marital status or political affiliation.
We will continue to strive to ensure that sustainable and ethical practices are a priority with our business and our partners, suppliers and artists. Our aim for the future is to expand our organic range, include more sustainable practices and continue to reduce our footprint.
