Fair Geekwear

fairwear logo

The motifs in our "Fair Geekwear" collection are printed on organic cotton shirts and produced under fair working conditions. You can recognize these shirts by our eco-label.

When you order one of our shirts, you are making a decision that helps the environment, the cotton farmers, the factory workers (spinners, weavers, seamstresses) and their families. You'll also be doing yourself a bit of good :).

100% eco-friendly organic textile

organic

The T-shirts are made from organic cotton from India, which is controlled and certified by GOTS. The GOTS identifies textiles made of natural fibres and signifies that they are of world-leading standard. This means that:

  • Most importantly, the seal means that cotton used in this shirt is a certified organic product.
  • Organic cotton production uses a lot of water - 20,000 litres per kilo of cotton. That's why the plantations and factories are located in areas where monsoon rains provide 95% of this water.
  • No pesticides are used in the cotton fields, the dyes are free of toxic chemicals, and the use of substances like toxic heavy metals, aromatics in solvents and genetically modified organisms is forbidden.
  • If you want to know even more, you can visit the GOTS Homepage.

The criteria for the GOTS seal go well beyond the Öko-Tex 100 requirements, but also include them. That's why the shirts are Oeko-Tex 100 certified. Oeko-Tex stands for non-toxic textiles. You can find more information about Oeko-tex here.

The factories use wind energy, which means that carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by 90%. In addition, the shirts are transported to our warehouse via sea, which also reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

100% fair working conditions

For our Fair Geekwear line, we only print on shirts from our supplier Continental Clothing Co., who is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation. What does that mean?

  • No child labour: Rigorous controls and checks are in place to ensure that no children work in their factories.
  • Fair pay: Every worker receives a minimum wage high enough to support his family without the children working. The workday is limited to eight hours a day, six days a week.
  • Fair benefits: The workers also have the right to pensions, social security, sick pay and severance payments.
  • Safety and hygiene in the workplace is ensured. For example, toxic chemicals that are harmful to the workers are banned.
  • If you want to know even more, you can visit the page of the Fair Wear Foundation.

So, when buying a T-shirt from getDigital, you're purchasing an ethically produced and eco-friendly item of clothing. To ensure high quality, we don't offer the cheapest stuff - we want to make sure everybody involved gets a fair deal. That's why we decided, as far as possible, to offer only fair-trade shirts made of organic materials. That way, we hope to make a small contribution to creating a better world. :)
