Teespring’s Conscious Collection: Create merch that makes a difference

It is impossible to deny the impact of the fashion industry on the environment. Conscious consumption and rising awareness of sustainability issues demand action, and fast. That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of our new Conscious Collection—a product line that empowers you to create and sell eco-conscious merch you can be proud of. To start, the collection will feature organic tote bags, eco unisex tees, organic long sleeve tees, and eco unisex hoodies. 

The Conscious Collection products are fully integrated in the Teespring Launcher and can be designed and launched instantly. They’re also global products, which means we’ll offer the best shipping prices and delivery timelines no matter where your customers are located. 


Introducing the Conscious Collection

The collection features four global products: tote bags, unisex shirts, long sleeve tees, and hoodies. All products are either made of 100% organic cotton or feature a combination of organic cotton and recycled materials. Each product is eco-friendly in its own unique way, but overall the collection shares characteristics such as:

  • All products are made of fibres that require little or no pesticides to grow and avoid contributions to air, water and land pollution. 
  • These products  are cruelty-free, made from non-animal fibres, and are harvested in animal-friendly ways (with reduced impact on their habitats). 
  • The materials used in these products also contribute to green practices that reduce the use of resources like water and energy. 
  • Our US supplier for hoodies, long sleeve tees, and totes donates a portion of every product sale to an environmental non-profit organization—by selling one of these products you can make a direct, positive impact on the environment. 

Products in the collection are labeled as “Organic” or “Eco” based on the percent of organic cotton they contain. Due to the fact that eco-friendly products require slightly more investment to produce, this also means they can generate higher profit margins ranging from $10+ to $15+ per product. Keep in mind 49% of Nielsen survey respondents said they are willing to pay higher-than-average prices for products with high-quality/safety standards, which consumers often associate with strong sustainability practices (organic + eco-friendly).

Teespring’s eco-conscious commitment

We’ve been working on our eco-friendly agenda since the company’s inception in 2011. With the fashion industry dumping over 92 million tons of solid waste into landfills each year, Teespring’s on-demand business model provides a significant solution for reducing waste. Our entire operation revolves around products that are created on demand (i.e. after an order is placed)—enabling us to avoid overproduction, textile waste, and only source supplies as needed. In the rare occurrence we have unusable inventory due to damaged goods or misprints (note Teespring has some of the lowest misprint rates in the industry), our team aims to recycle or donate these items as much as possible. 

Apart from our eco-friendly business model, we’ve made other enhancements to reduce our environmental impact over time. We’ve established an entirely paperless operation at our production facility in the U.S. and we’re working to reduce and terminate paper usage with our global partners too. We have eliminated double-packaging across our global fulfillment network, which has reduced plastic output by millions of plastic bags per year! Moving forward, we are committed to on-going research into eco-friendly products and packaging opportunities to further support conscious commerce on our platform.

  15. David says:

    Hey there, this is great news. Can you speak to the human element too? ie. Are the labour practices socially responsible too? Fair wages, good working conditions etc?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hi David, all product suppliers are asked to comply with an ethical code of conduct that covers health and safety regulations, labor and human rights laws, and ethical business practices. We also prioritize suppliers who offer eco-friendly products or use practices that reduce environmental impact.

      Hey Nakoa, we currently have the eco-products in adult sizes only but we hope to expand the range very soon!

  17. Alex says:

    Hello, i’m excited to start designing a few products from this collection. My only question is, will these products ship in sustainable packaging? It would defeat the purpose if they’re shipped in plastic packaging.

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hi Alex the Conscious Collection uses our standard packaging, which is 100% recyclable.

  18. Deem says:

    Is there any way to do a mass migration of current teespring designs on standard male/female tees to the conscious collection tees?


    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hi Deem, there’s not currently a way to do this – sorry for any inconvenience!

  19. Seth says:

    Are any of the range MADE in America?

  20. Fiadh says:

    As well as eco-friendly, are the items in the Conscious collection ethically produced?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hi Fiadh, Teespring is committed to a standard of excellence in every aspect of the business—including the ethical and responsible conduct in all operations by respecting the rights of all individuals and the environment.

  22. Andrea Winter says:

    Are there any plans to increase printable area on the Organic Tote Bag and/or more colors for the regular Tote Bag?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hey Andrea, there isn’t any plans currently but I will pass your feedback onto the team, thanks!

      1. Andrea Winter says:

        Cool, thanks Lucy!

  23. Travis says:

    Hello! Thanks for making an eco effort. I’m getting ready to launch a company where half of all profits that come in go to climate change relief efforts, including money made from merch that I want to make with Teespring. You said, “We have eliminated double-packaging across our global fulfillment network, which has reduced plastic output by millions of plastic bags per year!” That’s wonderful, but do you have plans on doing more with the packaging like eliminating plastic altogether, or using 100% recycled packing like what T-Pop is doing? That’s extremely important to me and will be to my customers as well. I’d love to be able to tell them you’re shifting in that direction quickly or at the very least having that conversation. Or is there an option to work individually with certain stores like mine where we can choose to use that type of packaging? Thank you very much for your time!

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

      Hello there! We greatly appreciate your feedback and ideas. I will feed this back to the team. Thank you!
