ABOUT ISTAND FOR®

My business idea grew from an awareness that garment production industry is one of the most environmentally harmful and unethical manufacturing industries on our planet. 
With this in mind, I have chosen Earth Positive® as my supplier of high quality, t-shirts and tote bags where the cotton has been grown and manufactured using sustainable and organic farming and made in a workplace verified by the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), ensuring the following eight labour standards are followed:  

  1. No use of child labour
  2. No use of forced labour
  3. Safe and healthy working conditions
  4. Legal labour contract
  5. Payment of a living wage
  6. Freedom of Association and the right to collective bargaining
  7. No discrimination against employees
  8. No excessive hours of work

About our graphics 
The graphics designed for our t-shirts and totes are all individually created by a range of talented artists especially for I Stand For. The graphics embody themes around humanity, joy, peace & environment, fun!
You will not see any of these images sold by other companies. We dedicate a bio-page to each artist with links to their individual web sites so you can check out more of their work. 
See our About the Artists page for more info on how we work with artists. 

Direct to Garment printing
All I Stand For graphics are printed in the hinterland of Murwillumbah, NSW using water-based direct to garment inks that meet environment standards.
Each item you order is individually printed to order, so this process may take a little more time to prepare than the mass produced printed apparel.  

Earth-friendly Packaging
I Stand For packaging uses biodegradable NatureFlex Bags to protect your items during transit.
Our swing tags use recycled paper with recycled linen tag thread.
