Sustainability

Sustainability is absolutely paramount to us here at FAMGO.

Around 85% of textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. Furthermore, 1 in every 5 items produced by the fashion industry reaches landfills without being worn even once.

FAMGO works with sweatshop-free, on-demand suppliers. Every item is made from scratch, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our eco-friendly printing tech creates almost no wastewater and uses less energy than standard industry printers.

Made to Order

Each product you see in our catalog is made on-demand—once you place an order, we produce it specifically for you. This method avoids overproduction and textile waste.

DTG Printing

Many of our products are printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) technique, a printing method where ink is first sprayed directly onto the garment, and then it soaks into the fabric.

We use Kornit printers that generate almost zero wastewater and use less energy than standard industry printers. The inks we use for printing are Oeko-Tex™ certified, vegan, water-based, and free of harmful chemicals.

Oeko-Tex™

At FAMGO, we embroider our products with Oeko-Tex™ certified threads, meaning they’re safe for both adult and children's clothing. Compared to printing, embroidery is generally more durable and produces less environmental waste.

Eco-friendly Materials

There are a lot of reasons why a product or material could be considered sustainable. Currently, at FAMGO our eco-friendly product collection consists of items made of at least 70% organic or recycled materials, or a mix of these materials.

Packaging Waste

At FAMGO all apparel products are packed in post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic mailers. Choosing PCR over first-use plastics reduce the environmental impact plastic has on our planet.

The amount of PCR in the packaging will differ depending on where your order gets printed, but it’s at least 50% for the outside poly mailer bags and at least 30% for the inside bags used in multi-item shipments.
