Ain't no hippy

At Cut-Out we don't preach about the environment and human rights, we do it without thinking. But just to let you know and give you peace of mind, here is how we try and look of after our world in our own little way:

Cut-Out tries to use as little packaging as possible, so you will not receive your items wrapped in tonnes of pointless tissue paper, we have also recently decided to post out items in reusable Degradermail postage bags which are 100% degradable, our labels are 100% recycled card and strung on biodegradable string.

We only print using waterbased inks, mostly used are Permaset Inks which are 100% solvent free, environmentally friendly and even good for the garden when we wash screens out on the grass rather than straight down the drain.

All Cut-Out's own garments are sweatshop free, whether Faritrade Contintental, American Apparel or EarthPositive, and we encourage our clients to use these brands when we print on commission.

Overall Cut-Out is not an 'Eco-label', but rest assured we constantly look out for more environmentally friendly alternatives to make our business just that little bit better for you and us, from cutting down the paper we use when doing our accounts, to reusing and recycling 'found' objects to make into pretty new products in our collections for you to love.
