The concept for I Stand For® idea grew from an awareness that the garment production industry is one of the most environmentally harmful and unethical manufacturing industries on our planet.
With this in mind, we set out to find an apparel supplier that could meet strict ethical standards of cotton growth and manufacture while also offering high quality products. One company, Earth Positive® ticked all the boxes, certified organic cotton, vegan (Peta approved), grown and manufactured using sustainable and organic farming & workplaces verified by the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF).
Next, we worked with talented artists around the country, to create unique signature artworks that also had a social and environmental theme.
We hope you enjoy wearing the I Stand For- ethically sourced apparel® t-shirts and totes as much as we enjoyed creating them for you.
Each item is individually printed to order using water based digital inks to produce the original graphic colours.

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.
