Fam Fab Sustainability - How we are doing our part to take care of the environment

Did you know bubble - Fam Fab PrintsDid you know...

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 reaches landfills without being worn even once.  Crazy, right?!?

Sustainability is important to us here at Fam Fab Prints. We’re getting greener every step of the way, while still providing you with the quality products you deserve.

Our Process

DTG Printer - Fam Fab Prints

Items are produced once we receive an order, items are printed specifically for you so no two pieces are exactly the same.  This allows us to avoid textile waste from overproduction.  In addition to  printing on demand to prevent over production, we also offer some eco-friendly products (i.e. products that are made of >70% recycled or organic material).  For example our Women's Two-Piece Bikini is made of 81% recycled polyester.  

Our swimwear products are produced with the direct-to-garment (DTG) technique, which is a printing method where ink is first sprayed directly onto the garment, and then it soaks into the fabric.  Our suppliers use Kornit printers that generate almost zero wastewater and use less energy than other standard industry printers.  The inks used for printing are Oeko-Tex™ certified, vegan, water-based, and free of harmful chemicals.  We take care to properly dispose of any left-over ink according to the ink supplier guidelines. 

In 2022 our primary supplier was able to recycle 787,524 lb. of product, and saved and repurposed 19,637 sq. ft. of fabric scrap.  We along with our suppliers are always working toward greener production.


PCR Packaging

All of our swimsuits are packaged in post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic mailers.  The outside plastic mailer contains a minimum of 50% PCR, and the inside clear plastic bag contains a minimum of 30% PCR.

What is PCR?

PCR packaging is made from everyday items, like used plastic bags and bottles. This material protects your order just as well as regular plastic bags, however, choosing PCR over first-use plastics reduces the environmental impact plastic has on our planet.

Production and Shipping

Because our products are made once we receive the order, it takes us some time to create your one of a kind product(s), and get them shipped to you.  We currently only sell in the United States and have warehouses around the country.  We do our very best to produce your product at the location that will get the product delivered to you the quickest.  When you order your product we provide an estimated delivery date, and provide e-mails to ensure you stay informed, and are able to track your products.

Providing you with top quality products while also looking out for the environment is our top priority.  If you have questions or feedback on how we can do better send us an e-mail at support@FamFabPrints.com.
