From field
to fashion

We believe that sustainable fashion can make a difference in the world. That is why we say no to fast fashion and strive for ethical and sustainable production. This is also reflected in the choice of our partners. For example, we work with textile suppliers such as Stanley/Stella who pursue the same ecological values. This is the only way we can guarantee 100% sustainable clothing, from field to fashion.

GOTS

Sustainable fashion and GOTS are often mentioned in the same breath. This makes sense, as GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and is an international quality mark for organic textiles. The GOTS label is the strictest certification out there and guarantees an environmentally and socially responsible production. We are therefore extremely proud to have held a GOTS certificate since 2015, the crowning glory of our eco-friendly and sustainable vision.

Our sustainable promise

We firmly believe in the importance of transparency. Which is why we like to share the steps we are taking to make Alfa Shirt as sustainable as possible.
Alfa Shirt strives to produce as ecologically as possible. We therefore always look for the most environmentally-friendly paint and use water-based inks as much as possible. This is ink that does not contain thinners, as the latter is bad for the environment.
The roof of Alfa Shirt is equipped with no less than 720 solar panels. This will enable us to reduce our CO₂ emissions by almost 180 tonnes in a single year.
We purify the water used in the printing process. Thanks to our professional water treatment plant, even the smallest ink particle is removed and we can reuse the purified water.
Alfa Shirt recycles all plastic. Twice a year, a recycling company comes to collect our plastic and compresses it into bales. This is how we recycle 2000 kg of plastic every year.
Alfa Shirt is fully heated using a heat pump that extracts heat from the air. This way, the air is continuously purified and heat is recycled. Our offices and showroom are also equipped with underfloor heating. In this way, we can minimise our impact on the environment.
We have a rainwater tank of no less than 20,000 litres. Among other things, we use the rainwater we extract to flush all the company toilets.
At Alfa Shirt, we clean our machines with 100% cotton reusable cleaning cloths. An external, ecological company washes the ink and chemical products from these cloths, so that we can continue to reuse them. In this way, we avoid up to 400 kg of waste annually.
We do everything we can to recycle as much as possible. Even the cardboard boxes from our suppliers are reused.
Our roof is insulated with insulation 16 cm thick and the walls are also optimally insulated. In this way, hardly any heat is lost.
