Shirts feel good when they are responsibly sourcedRebecca Miller

We take sourcing and creating seriously. Read through to learn how GOEX is limiting our environmental impact and are committed to sustainability.
Step 1: Responsible Sourcing
Our eco-triblend material is responsibly grown and sourced right here in the U.S. – in South Carolina. Our eco-triblend tees are made up of 50% Recycled Polyester, 25% Cotton and 25% Rayon with a total of 5 recycled water bottles in each tee. By sourcing the material in the United States, we have high visibility on farming practices and working conditions for workers.
Step 2: Responsible Workplace Environment
After the material is processed into fiber, spun into yarn and knitted into fabric, it is shipped to our Fair Trade, Better Work Certified production facility LIFE to be hand-sewn into your shirts. A typical t-shirt will travel 16,000 miles. Most of this shipping is done using bunker fuel, a heavy oil residue so toxic most countries won’t let ships use it within 200 miles of shore. Haiti, on the other hand, is a mere 500 miles from Miami and that’s as far as our fabric and shirts have to go – a significant reduction in shipping.
Step 3: Responsible Fulfillment
Once the blank tees are sewn, checked and packed by our makers in Haiti, they come to our fulfillment warehouse in Kansas City to be printed and shipped to you!
Our printshop is located in Kansas City’s urban core, creating fair wage jobs for many Kansas City residents as well.
