investing in organic

What is organic cotton?

Organic cotton is cotton which has been farmed according to agricultural organic standards. Its production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Importantly organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.

sustainable packaging

what we do

We strive to be Humane at every stage of our business - which includes being as sustainable as we can be as an independent company. From our swing tags to the boxes our wholesale plain tees come in, there isn't a scrap of plastic used anywhere. Reducing, reusing & recycling is our mantra so all packaging is recycled & recyclable, and we have phased out the use of tape & stickers on our packaging, opting instead to go back to basics with some simple twine & a stamp with an ink pad. For printing our products, we use Earth Positive organic cotton which is carbon neutral, and our screen printer is an independent vegan-owned business. Everyone who is either directly or indirectly employed by Humane Human gets paid a fair, living wage.
