ETHICAL PRINTING

SEDEX

We are members of SEDEX and are SMETA audited every year. We place the utmost importance on health and safety and fair practice. We adhere to the highest standards in both H&S and Human Resources and continuously monitor and work to develop and improve these standards within FIT.

These issues are important to us and we aim only to trade with companies who share our values. FIT keeps records of all suppliers’ (and their factories’) audits and certification where available.

FIT Shirts is committed to maintaining high ethical standards within the company and its supply chain. We treat any concerns or complaints with the utmost importance and sensitivity. Employees, Officers, Directors, Contractors and Suppliers can all raise concerns directly with the company. Please click here to see our full Whistleblowing Policy and contact details.

Alternatively, those involved may wish to contact an external person or body rather than the company directly. In this instance, please click here to go through to the UK government website which lists contact details for all prescribed people and bodies within the UK.

 

RECYCLING

FIT continuously strive to be ethically responsible and with that in mind we recycle 95% of our waste, including cardboard, paper, tin, foil, used white spirit, used kerosene, used ink pots, used aerosol cans, ink cartridges, print seconds and reject shirts.

 

INKS

FIT has a vast ink library onsite and 97% of our inks are phthalate free. This means that the inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals as described in the Montreal Convention and are formulated free from aromatic hydrocarbons. They are free from any volatile solvent and therefore can be considered to have less impact on the environment, when compared with solvent-based products.
