Go Greek. Go Green.

 

Since the Greek community is all about helping the world, we decided to get involved too! On top of contributing to our clients’ philanthropies…

 

one-tree-for-order

We plant one tree with every order.

That’s right: when you order t-shirts, we plant a tree. When you order sweatshirts, we plant a tree. When you order yoga pants, hoodies, totes and tank tops, we will plant four trees!

Trees for the Future

Adam Block is partnered with Trees for the Future (http://trees.org/), a non-profit organization dedicated to planting trees in rural communities. Since its founding, the organization has planted over 115 million trees worldwide.

Trees for the Future provides training to local farmers on forest garden planning, nursery establishment, planting design and maintenance. They provide oversight, and also provide materials such as seeds, nursery bags, shovels, watering cans and wheelbarrows.

Trees for the Future help farmers diversify their planting sites, and train them on sustainable harvesting methods. The gardens they help plant provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, and up to a 500% increase in their annual income.

Once established, trees create sustainable sources of crop shade, soil rehabilitation, food, windbreaks, medicine, mudslide control, timber and more for communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, all while reducing CO2 levels and raising biodiversity worldwide.

Why Trees?

Here are 10 reasons why we chose to plant a tree with every order:


1 Trees absorb dangerous gases from the atmosphere.
2 Trees replenish the atmosphere with oxygen.
3 Trees permanently increase the income of poor farmers.
4 Planting trees reverses environmental degradation.
5 Trees help families become self-sufficient.
6 Trees fight deforestation by putting less pressure on forests.
7 Trees help renew & regenerate over-harvested land.
8 Trees stabilize soil and prevent wind and soil erosion.
9 Trees lower air temperature and help combat climate change.
10 Planting trees restores biodiversity.

Apparel
Water-Based Ink

Optional water-based inks produce ultra-soft prints and are the most eco-friendly inks available. This option is used by Sororities & Fraternities with a desire to maintain a green profile, and by Greeks looking for a soft-to-the-hand feel. If you truly want to print green, apparel water-based ink is the way to go.

Biodegradable
organic solvent

In place of cheaper, hazardous mineral spirits, we only use 100% biodegradable, organic solvent for reclamation and breakdown of our screens.

Eco-friendly
apparel

We offer a wide variety of garment options that are eco-friendly like100% Organic Cotton and Bamboo-constructed styles!

Shipping
& Packaging

All shipping boxes are produced with at least 90% recycled material, and the content is from Responsibly Forested sources. These boxes are warehoused by the truckload, reducing our semi-truck deliveries significantly.

Whenever possible, vendor boxes are reused in order to minimize the need for new boxes. Please let us know if you'd like us to ship your order in a reused box.

Corporate
Responsibility

To reduce landfill waste we regularly distribute ink to our presses via 55 gallon drums, as opposed to the standard five pound cans.

To help reduce paper use, we recycle all paper trimmings, unused paper products and press runs that do not meet our high quality standards. Also, our computer-based production system keeps our paper usage to a minimum.

Designing a more
beautiful world

Our vision

We feel responsible for our surroundings and want to make a positive impact on the world. At the local level–by making awesome designs to commemorate memories–and at the global level–by reducing the ecological footprint.

Every planted tree makes a small step towards a better world in which everyone of us would like to live. That’s why our vision is to design a more beautiful world.
