SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is important to BKU. Our eco-friendly product collection consists of items that are made of at least 70% organic or recycled materials, or a mix of these materials. Currently, all of our clothing products are made from 100% organic cotton. We’re getting greener every step of the way, while still providing you the quality products you deserve. 

Around 85% of all textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. What’s more, one in every five items produced by the fashion industry reach landfills without being worn even once. As BKU works with on-demand suppliers, we only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. This way we get to take care of you, and the planet we all share 🌎💚

 

PRINTING TECH & MATERIALS 

Our clothing is printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) printing method. The printing tech we use is made with sustainability in mind, and our Kornit printers use almost zero wastewater and less energy than standard industry printers, lowering our carbon footprint. The inks we use for printing are high-quality, water-based, vegan inks that Kornit formulate, test, and produce in their own factories. Kornit inks are non-hazardous, toxin-free, biodegradable, and certified with an OEKO-TEX Eco Passport. BKU takes sustainability seriously, that’s why we take care to dispose of any left-over ink according to the ink supplier guidelines.
