Our sustainability promise!
Sustainability and operating eco-friendly is important to our mission.
From eco-friendly operations and product selection to recycled paper marketing materials, like business cards, we’re getting greener every step of the way, while still providing you the quality designs, styles and products you deserve.
Did you know that 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. YUCK!
This is why – 1, we encourage you to donate your old clothing items to organizations in your community. Old items still in quality condition can be reused in your community. Reach out to homeless shelters, non-profits, domestic violence shelters, refugee organizations. There is someone who wants your old stuff – put it to good use!
And 2, Brighter Manner works with on-demand suppliers, to only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing partner's high-quality printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy than standard industry printers.
Each product you see in our catalog is made on-demand—once you place an order, we produce it specifically for you. Even our handmade items like our Mala Bead and Charm bracelets. This allows us to avoid overproduction and textile waste. We are continuously working toward greener production and packaging.
Our Brand selection for printed items
We make it our #1 priority to choose eco-friendly, sustainable brands that are prioritizing lessening waste and their overall impact on the environment.
Women’s, Men’s, Youth and Yoga Clothing
Stanley + Stella is known for its simple, high-quality, and eco-friendly apparel. All of the brand’s products are made of organic or recycled materials.
Bella + Canvas is a US apparel company that prioritizes sustainability by limiting and filtering its water supply, saving energy, and recycling leftover fabric.
All-over print products are cut and hand-sewn by Printful’s in-house team. Brighter Manner only prints items once an order is placed, resulting in less excess inventory compared to conventional manufacturing. All cut & sew products are made using CPSIA certified inks.
Eco-Friendly Tote Bags
We chose the brand Econsicous for our Tote Bags. As the brand’s name suggests, Econscious is an eco-conscious company that creates clothing made from organic or recycled materials. All of Econscious’s apparel is PETA-approved vegan and GOTS-certified.
Water Bottles/Coffee Mugs
We choose Photo USA to print our water bottles and coffee mugs. Photo USA is the leading manufacturer of dye-sublimation ceramics and a full range of dye-sublimation image products. The name of the coating used to print on these products is ORCA - and represents the strength of the Orca whale.
Mr. James Peng, the CEO of Photo USA, has been very concerned with the Orca whale for much of his lifetime. The Orca whale is on the endangered species list, Photo USA donates a percentage of sales to Save The Whales, an organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the oceans and its inhabitants, particularly the Orca whale.
Inspiration, The inspiration for our designs comes from our own personal experiences on this life's journey and the observations of the world around us.

All art work and designs are original and designed in house. We aim to create abstract art, simple drawings, florals, pretty words and dope sayings to match your message and EVERY mood.
