Why is there a scent or discolouration? We use a direct to garment printing process that involves applying ink directly to the garment, it may leave an unpleasant, slightly vinegar-like scent. But no worries, this is quite normal, and it will go away after the first wash. You may also notice some discolouration or an off-white residue on the garment. Since direct to garment inks are water-soluble, this can easily be washed away.

Product Care: Keeping Your Threads Trail-Ready

How do I wash my Trail Threads clothes? To keep your Trail Threads threads adventuring for years to come, follow these simple care tips:

  • Turn the garment inside out before washing.
  • Machine-wash cold only.
  • Ditch the bleach (it's not kind to our colors!)
  • Tumble dry on low heat (think gentle summer breeze, not scorching desert wind).
  • Avoid ironing the printed design (let the artwork shine on its own!).

    Some extra precautions:

    • Avoid direct sunlight before washing—due to the pre-treatment of direct to garment printing, direct sunlight can cause sun staining, which is nearly impossible to get rid of.
    • Ironing—keep the t-shirt inside out and avoid ironing the printed part directly.
    • Separate laundry—divide light and dark garments to reduce any chance of color bleeding.

        How to dry Direct to Garment printed t-shirts?

        • Keep the t-shirt inside out.
        • The best option would be to hang dry them, but with direct to garment printed t-shirts, you can also use tumble drying.
        • If you choose tumble drying, do it on a low heat setting, as over time higher temperatures can dry out the ink, causing it to crack.

            Additional Trail Wisdom

            Can I track my order? Absolutely! Once your order ships, you'll receive a tracking email with a magic number so you can follow your package's exciting journey.

            Are you eco-conscious? Yes, our products are made to order which reduces waste. Plus, we're committed to sustainable practices! For every product sold, we donate $0.43 USD to plant one tree through a reputable charitable organization called The Good API. This organization partners with Eden Reforestation Projects to plant trees around the world.

            Planting trees with Eden Reforestation Projects offers a multitude of benefits:

            • Increased biodiversity: Trees provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.
            • Coastal protection: Mangrove trees, a key focus of Eden Projects, help to stabilize coastlines and reduce the impact of erosion and flooding.
            • Economic empowerment: Eden Projects provides fair wages and employment opportunities for local communities involved in tree planting initiatives.
            • Enhanced carbon sequestration: Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas, helping to combat climate change.

            By purchasing from Trail Threads, you're not only getting a great product, but you're also helping us make a positive impact on the environment.

            Planting Trees with Transparency: FAQs Answered!

            Can I supercharge my sustainable impact? You already plant a tree with every Trail Threads purchase (high five!), but did you know you can supercharge your sustainable impact? Here's how it works:

            How can you ensure the trees survive after planting? Eden Reforestation Projects takes a multi-pronged approach to ensure long-term tree survival:

            • Protected Planting Sites: They collaborate with local governments to secure permanent protection for restoration sites.
            • Community Involvement: Hiring local communities fosters a sense of ownership and responsibility for the trees' well-being.
            • Sustainable Practices: Planting agroforestry species provides long-term food security and reduces reliance on deforestation for fuel.
            • Forest Guard Protection: Dedicated forest guards actively protect the restored forests.
            • Long-Term Commitment: The Forest Guard Endowment Fund provides ongoing resources for forest protection.

            How can you possibly plant trees for such a low price ($0.43 per tree)? Transparency is key! Here's why Eden Reforestation Projects can plant trees so efficiently:

            • Efficient Seed Sourcing: They collect seeds from existing forests and purchase them in bulk at low costs from local sources.
            • Self-Sufficient Irrigation: Many trees planted are mangroves, which grow along coastlines with natural irrigation systems.
            • Local Employment & Empowerment: Hiring local communities for planting creates economic incentives for them to protect the newly restored forests.
            • Reduced Operational Costs: Fair wages and efficient planting processes contribute to lower overall costs.
